The dishonourable member Boris Johnson has been stabbed in the back by the equally shifty Michael Gove and we’re surprised!
We’ve known politics is a shady business for centuries, even the Great Emancipator Abraham Lincoln had more faces than a clock factory but was always careful about which one he presented to the public.
The first casualty of the Tory leadership race was Boris Johnson and the second should be Michael Gove for his public show of deceit – if he is willing to stab his colleague in the back for power, what is he willing to do to the country?
Of course, Boris Johnson’s failing was deciding to come clean. He didn’t think the Brexit campaign would win and was only using it for the experience of running a big campaign. Now we need a Prime Minister who can sort it all out.
Neville Chamberlain was Prime Minister of Great Britain in September 1939 at the start of World War II. In May 1940, after his disastrous Norwegian campaign, Chamberlain resigned and Winston Churchill succeeded him.
Neville Chamberlain was a great peace time Prime Minister and by his own admission Churchill was only good in the war years.
We are now at War. We need someone at the helm who can with a level head repair the damage Nigel Farage has done at the EU this last week.
Someone who can put Britain back on the right path. While negotiating deals with Europe and the rest of the world without insulting them.
This person also has to assuage the Remain voters and the Buyer’s Remorse voters who are now signing petitions and marching on Parliament.
They also have to stamp down forcibly on the hate campaigners now believing that a Brexit vote means you can shout racist vitriol at ‘foreignors’.
I don’t know what is going to happen in the next few months – I wouldn’t even rule out another referendum with the government itself being split 60/40 in favour of Remain.
Whatever happens the result of any referendum could mean nothing. The referendum shows the will of the people. The government still has the power to overrule this and decide what they feel is right for the country.
That decision is yet to be made.
