WATCH: Johnson confirms he’s ready to break the law to leave the EU without a deal

Boris Johnson: As Opposition MPs tore into his new attempt at a withdrawal agreement, he didn’t look happy.

Boris Johnson has told Parliament he is prepared to break the so-called Benn Act and commit to a “no deal” Brexit if MPs – and MEPs – reject his latest pretence at offering a withdrawal agreement to the European Union.

See for yourself:

This Site has already explained why stakeholders in this matter – in both the UK and the EU – believe Mr Johnson’s latest deal is a sham.

Now BoJob has confirmed what we all expected – that he will break the law to push ahead with the “no deal” Brexit has has wanted all along.

This will fuel speculation that he is in hock to high-powered financial speculators who backed his bid to become leader of the Conservative Party. Hopefully John McDonnell’s demand for an immediate independent inquiry will win more support as a result.

Meanwhile Jeremy Corbyn and Ian Blackford have already confirmed that Labour and the SNP will not support the new attempt at a deal, and it seems unlikely to gain the votes it needs.

It seems the only immediate choice is a vote of “no confidence” in Mr Johnson’s government followed by a bid to form a temporary government led by Mr Corbyn. If this fails, then Speaker John Bercow may be prevailed upon to seek another delay of Brexit while a general election is held.

Perhaps Mr Johnson is hoping for that. It certainly seems the Liberal Democrats are supporting him in it, by refusing to back a Corbyn-led government.

Perhaps he thinks the Brexit-supporting public will put him back into Number 10 with a majority.

But after a series of failed attempts at Brexit, is anybody really stupid enough to think he has anything to offer us?

    I doubt the Scottish courts will allow him to break the law it looks like his new deal will be rejected again… so he will need to extend Brexit whether he likes it or not.
