Tory landslide brings Boris Johnson’s disastrous ‘no deal’ Brexit closer

Dictator Johnson: With an 80-seat Parliamentary majority, he can now do whatever he likes – to you.

Well done, everybody who voted Labour in last week’s general election. You did the right thing – it’s just a shame you didn’t get the result we all needed.

One of the reasons for that, it seems to This Writer, was the polarisation of opinion on Brexit.

The Tories – not just under Boris Johnson, but going back through Theresa May’s nightmare leadership and right back to David Cameron’s horror show – have used their puppets in the mass media to change it from a debate on our future relationship with the European Union into a divisive standoff, pitting family against family, old against young, cosmopolitan against parochial.

And they succeeded, I think partly because they had dragged the process out so long that people were sick of the whole thing.

Labour’s promise to have a decisive answer within six months was unpalatable compared with Johnson’s lie that he’ll have it all sewn up by the end of January. People want it to be over now.

Well, I’ve got news for those people: it won’t be.

Johnson might be promising a vote in Parliament on his Withdrawal Bill on Friday, which will enable to UK to leave the EU on January 31, but of course that’s not the end of the saga. The country’s decoupling will take many years.

But the deal on which MPs will be voting will put us into a “transition” period, with the UK assumed to be clear of the EU by December 31, 2020 – and a top EU official says that won’t happen.

In a leaked recording, Michel Barnier said it would be “unrealistic” to expect a “global negotiation” on trade to be completed within 11 months, meaning that in fact we are likely to leave the EU with no deal.

That will be exactly what Johnson wants, if he really is in cahoots with rich hedge fund managers who have been said to have funded his Tory leadership campaign on the condition that he take us out of the EU without a deal so they can profit from betting on it.

And it will make it possible for Johnson to sell off our remaining national assets – including all those parts of the National Health Service that are worth having – to the United States in the dirty deal that many of us have been foretelling for several months.

And the nearly 14 million people who voted Conservative on December 12? They’ll be remembered as the patsies who made it possible.

    The damage to come will be so great that Friday the 13th when the results were announced will go down in history, perhaps surpassing the original when the Templars were taken down.

    Unfortunately, Labour lost 1.3 million of their Remain inclined voters to greens/SNP/Lib Dems whilst a majority of the Tory Party Remainers were loyal to their Party (as always).

    We need a proper Left leader to continue the work because after Brexit the Tory fiscal policy will not improve things for this country and Labour need to come back strong. We need to finally rid ourselves of the Blairite element and have a strong, united Left-leaning Party.
