Having woken up rather early, I found time to look back at this assessment of Boris Johnson’t career path and biography. He’s clearly a shrewd political operator. Would he bumble into backing Brexit unless he thought it had legs? It doesn’t seem so. He’s a risk taker, and here he is taking a risk. He’s a far cannier player at politics than many realise. The sinister Telegraph Editor, Max Hastings played a big role in Boris’ early start up the slippery pole.
Tap Blog readers probably think I’ve gone soft following Bojo’s progress with Brexit. I’m prepared to sup with the Devil if we can grab back any level of freedom from the totalitarian system of world government. Sometimes you have to do that, if you want to be more than simply a keyboard warrior. If Boris is rebelling against Cameron Minor and his paedophile Satanic regime, that’s a step away from the furnace of hell for the rest of us too.
Today Boris clarifies what he means in his approach to the EU. Out mean Out, he says.
Roger Helmer MEP for UKIP East Midlands (maybe sensing the political ground moving for him too) writes –
Boris Johnson makes it clear that ;Out means Out’. He agrees with us that it is not just a negotiating plan to secure better terms.
If, however, as the Prime Minister says, a ‘Leave’ vote is followed by the Article 50 process, there will indeed be further negotiation. But it will be about a Free Trade Deal, not new terms for UK membership.
Two million migrants
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports accusations that Tony Blair presided over a secret plan to allow two million migrants into the UK.
As someone once said, “Tony Blair hated the British working class, so he decided to import a new one of his own.”
Perhaps too true to be funny, especially when EU ‘Free Movement’ allows mass immigration to continue.
Brussels silly season
And here is an example of Brussels silly season – The FT reports a cunning Health and Safety plan from Brussels to control the boiling of kettles, potentially making a cup of tea impossible.
