Beleaguered Boris Johnson will dare the Queen to dismiss him rather than quit over Brexit and it’s said that the Prime Minister is prepared to squat in 10 Downing Street even if he loses a no-confidence vote in his government and it’s alleged that he will further attempt to stay if he’s found in contempt of court for trying to push through a no-deal Brexit on October 31.
And unless the police turn up at the doors of 10 Downing Street with a warrant for the Prime Minister’s detention, he won’t be going anywhere and the last time a monarch canned a Prime Minister was under William IV in 1834 but a senior Cabinet minister said with conviction that this won’t happen if the Prime Minister breaks convention and attempts to stay.
Instead, it’s believed that the monarch will suspend Parliament and call for a general election, which is precisely what Boris Johnson wants and if this is correct, the acts of defiance would plunge Britain into a constitutional dilemma as Boris Johnson insists Brexit will happen on Halloween, despite a law commanding the requests for a delay.
The Prime Minister unveiled a new Brexit proposal last week for two borders in Northern Ireland but with EU figures sceptical, the focus could now shift within days to a no-deal and under the Benn Act, Boris Johnson must ask EU leaders for a three-month stay on October 19 if he fails to get a deal.
Court papers subsequently verified he would comply but then the Prime Minister then personally interceded and said that it would be a New deal or no deal, but no delay and now there are reports that he will send the letter but attempted to undermine the EU at the same time, by prohibiting its 2021-27 budget or sending a renegade British commissioner like Nigel Farage to Brussels.
But seeking to get around the law could leave the Prime Minister in contempt of court and opposing the will of MPs could lead to a vote of no-confidence from Parliament and for the first time in the Queen’s reign she solicited input on dismissing a Prime Minister.
And Boris Johnson insisted that Britain WILL pack its bags and walk out at the end of the month, but acknowledged Europe may not cheerily wave us off with a deal, describing his plan for an agreement as a reasonable compromise that gives ground where needed and said that it represents the United Kingdom jumping to the island in the middle of the river.
And Boris Johnson said that if we leave with a deal, we presently need the EU to hop over from its side and join us there, showing its own readiness to do a deal that the UK Parliament can support but the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier emitted scorn on the possibility of the new proposal working.
And Michel Barnier told an event in Paris that if they didn’t change that he didn’t believe on the basis of the mandate that he’s been given by the EU27, that they can advance and he said that a no-deal outcome would never be Europe’s choice in an attempt to shift the blame and that it would always be the UKs choice, not theirs.
The Prime Minister, meanwhile, described Jeremy Corbyn as a serial wannabe Brexit-wrecker but said he has been encouraged to discover not all MPs are so recalcitrant in backing the proposal. He further stated that MPs from every division of his own Conservative Party, from Northern Ireland’s DUP, even from Jeremy Corbyn’s own ranks, have said that their proposal deals look like one they could get behind and that where the previous Withdrawal Agreement, backstop and all, forced an intense spearhead through the core of Parliament, he’s heard nothing but positive sonances from across the House.
He said it would be more reasonable for the EU to accept Britain’s outstretched hand and make that leap on to the island if he’s armed with a set of proposals MPs support and he continued: “So I say to our European friends: grasp the opportunity that our new proposals provide. Join us at the negotiating table in a spirit of compromise and co-operation and let’s make Brexit work for both sides”.
He said that we’re leaving and that we can do it with a deal if the EU is willing but that they should be under no illusion or misapprehensions, there will be no more dither and that there will be no more delay and that on October 31 they’re going to get Brexit done.
Well, this illusion certainly appears to make Boris Johnson happy in his world full of pixies, fairies, hobgoblins and leprechauns and Boris Johnson really is a clown and he has no mandate to squat in No 10 Downing Street if he doesn’t sustain a vote of confidence and he positively doesn’t have the mandate to upset the Queen, in fact, he’s a premium chucklehead.
And now the preponderance of people have woken up to the fact that Brexit isn’t the land of milk and honey that was promised and much has transpired since then and only the trustful Brexidiots fanatics still believe that most of the country still want Brexit.
I think everyone is truly sick to the back teeth of all of this and they should revoke Article 50 now and the female voter in Boris Johnson’s constituency had in it in one when she portrayed him as a ‘Filthy piece of toerag’, and even though it was pretty near to the point and seemingly very true this wasn’t a particularly grown-up response.
