Any new Tory leader trying ‘no-deal’ Brexit could be toppled. Does Boris Johnson know?

Boris Johnson: He hasn’t ruled out a ‘no-deal’ Brexit as he’s desperate for the UK to quit the EU on October 31. Has he realised that his own party may not allow it? Probably not. Does that face suggest anything is going on in the mind behind it, at all?

Enough Conservative MPs would support a ‘no confidence’ vote in a Tory government that supports a ‘no-deal’ Brexit to trigger an election.

That’s the word from DWP Secretary Amber Rudd – and it’s a clear warning for Boris Johnson (and Dominic Raab, although he’s much less likely to win the Tory leadership).

But will they pay attention? Mr Johnson has proved impossible to contact, so reasoning with him seems even more remote at the moment.

And he is in pole position to win the Tory leadership race.

Let’s hope he does. It seems clear that a ‘no confidence’ vote in any Conservative government, and a general election, may be the only hope for any decent future for the United Kingdom.

Cabinet minister Amber Rudd has revealed she believes there is a sufficient number of Tory MPs who are willing to topple a government intent on leaving the EU without a Brexit deal.

The remarks from the work and pensions secretary came as the former Conservative chancellor Ken Clarke vowed to take the extraordinary step as a last resort if “some idiot was sailing onto a no-deal Brexit”.

A second senior Tory, Dominic Grieve, told the House of Commons last week he would vote against the government in a motion of no confidence in the same circumstances.

    These nasty clowns have landed the whole nation into an impossible mess. They have deliberately unleashed forces of evil racism and violence and none of them has a shred of credibility. What an utter disgrace they all are.

    I wonder if all the candidates for the PM know that the DExEU have been using a FAKE vexatious Court Precedent to hide Brexit Data for the last 3years.I refer to the Dransfield Vexatious case as per the Court of Appeal decision EWCA 2015 Civ 454 dated May 2015 which is basically a tool designed by frauds to protects frauds. Theresa May certainly knew about it, as does Fatboy Johnson but both of them turned a blind eye.
