Johnson meets criticism that he is undemocratic with ‘give me a break’. Er… NO!

Boris Johnson: He says he doesn’t want to be a dictator but he looks like one and acts like one so…

Boris Johnson, the prime minister who tried to deny the UK’s democratic representatives a chance to influence Brexit, is trying to tell us he isn’t undemocratic.

The man whose representatives suggested that he might ignore a Parliamentary mandate to avoid a “no deal” Brexit is trying to tell us he doesn’t want to be a dictator.

What do we say to such a man?

We say: no.

We don’t give Boris Johnson anything but orders.

The problem with Tory MPs – and prime ministers most of all – is that they try to ignore the fact that they are public servants.

They are elected on the basis of a manifesto – a list promising actions they aim to achieve in their period of office – and they are expected to carry it out.

They are not expected to do whatever they fancy and then lie about it to us.

Nor are they expected to use little-known Parliamentary conventions to bypass the democratic process. Parliament is sovereign, not the PM.

We’ve seen many Tory governments that flouted those conditions.

But Theresa May fell foul of the people when she failed to offer a Brexit that Parliament could accept.

Now Boris Johnson is failing, too.

He has been told to go back to the EU and get a proper withdrawal agreement or an extension of the deadline by which the UK must leave – in order to get a proper deal.

And he says, “Give me a break.”

No, BoJob.

You do as you’re told.
