Hold on there Boris, isn’t that your job? September 28, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Is the thought that comes to mind reading this report that Boris Johnson has said…

The British government cannot allow the process of opening formal negotiations for Britain to leave the European Union to “drag on”….


“There is obviously Euro elections coming down the track,” he told BBC1’s The Andrew Marr Show.

“I think people will be wondering whether we want to be sending a fresh batch of UK Euro MPs to that institution which, after all, we are going to be leaving. So let’s get on with it.”

And then last night we have this:

Liam Fox has used a speech to the World Trade Organisation to portray post-Brexit Britain as a “proud and outward-looking trading nation” that would battle for liberalised commerce outside the EU.

The address in Geneva was billed in advance as the international trade secretary making a significant push for a so-called hard Brexit, taking the UK outside the EU’s single market. However, critics said the lack of any new details on the terms of Brexit indicated confusion in the government over the issue.

They haven’t a clue. They really don’t.

“Lord Mandelson believes that prime minister Theresa May’s cabinet is at all-out war over plans for leaving the European Union.”


FergusD - September 29, 2016

Indeed, so it would have been really helpful if the Blairites with Mandelson’s help hadn’t launched a disastrous coup against Jezza when the Tories are in such disarray. Doh!


2. CL - September 28, 2016

“Mr Johnson has declared that even after leaving the European Union, Britain would continue to support Turkey’s bid to join the European Union. He did not explain what leverage London would have with Brussels on this, or address the issue of a Muslim state with a population of 80 million becoming a member, a prospect he and his fellow Brexiters had so publicly decried.”

I believe his grandad was Turkish.

BJ is good at the auld Bertie trick of ‘the government needs to do something!’

CL, While Turkey has a Muslim President,Turkey is not a Muslim state.

Not yet Roger. Erdoğan is doing his best to change that.

Johnson knows no job other than the inflation of his own ego.

Can’t bring myself to read Polly Toynbee anymore, but the headline is good: ‘who Needs a Cohenrent Brexit Plan when we have Dreams and Fantasies’
