Johnson’s Brexit is one betrayal after another

Boris Johnson: his Brexit is an insult , even to those of us who voted to leave the EU.

There’s more happening in the UK than Covid-19 and Dominic Cummings.

But the Tories’ mismanagement means none it is good.

Take Brexit: the instant he was shot of the need to pander to the DUP, Boris Johnson threw out all pretence that he was going to demand the same trade and customs conditions in Northern Ireland as in the rest of the UK.

So he is paving the way for the restoration of the Province to the Republic by making it easier for them to align than for NI to stick with the rest of the UK.

As for the trade deal: he has thrown the inexperienced Liz (“cheese!”) Truss into the arena, adding fuel to claims that he is in collusion with hedge fund bosses who want to profit from Brexit by betting that the UK’s economy will collapse.

There was huge outcry about these stories last year – but now Johnson has carte blanche to do what he likes.

A new Brexit border in the Irish Sea will not be ready by Boris Johnson’s end-of-year deadline, according to a new analysis that warns more than 60 administrations, government departments and public bodies will be involved in overseeing the new system.

Ministers finally admitted last week that there would be some checks on certain goods entering Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK from next January, when the Brexit transition period comes to an end.

Johnson and others have also refused to consider extending the transition period, despite having no agreement between the EU and Britain over the practical treatment of Northern Ireland and little prospect of a trade deal being in place by the start of 2021.

    What hope has Boris and Mr ‘I did Brexit’ Cummings got of delivering Brexit as espoused by our Fuhrer? £300,000 a day for the NHS, huge numbers of trade deals worldwide, while hanging on to the trade with the EU. Delivering the NHS to Trump for a truckload of chlorinated chicken was not in the script. Well, when it all goes wrong, Boris can always blame Covid, or make the inevitable U-turn on the Brexit extension.
