Now More Than Ever Britain Needs The Brexit Party to Keep Boris Honest
If Boris is to lead Britain to its own Trumpian revolution – and he can and he must – then the last thing he should be allowed to do is anything that smacks of centrist compromise.

The Brexit Party’s candidates list for the imminent General Election shows it means business. Phew!

Without Nigel Farage and co to hold his feet to the fire, it’s a racing certainty that Boris Johnson will let us down badly in a number of key areas.

Apart from the obvious – all that expensive and pointless climate change nonsense to which he is committed under his rubbish predecessor’s Net Zero carbon dioxide policy – there are two things I find most especially worrisome about this new administration.

First is its focus on the ‘backstop’. To listen to the way Boris’s ministers carry on about it – even really sound ones who ought to know better, like Jacob Rees-Mogg – you would imagine that the backstop was the only flaw in Theresa May’s otherwise marvellous Withdrawal Agreement. Given how tightly muzzled the Cabinet is under Dominic Cummings’s ‘One word out of turn from you, matey, and it’s piano wire time’ policy, it seems reasonable to assume that these public statements are part of a softening up exercise.

We – the malleable public – are being conditioned into accepting the government’s propaganda myth that once the backstop is gone Britain will have won a famous victory.

No, it won’t have. As Boris once said — when it served his interests to be more frank on the issue — Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement is a ‘polished turd.’
