Re: EU Ref
A conspiracy theorist might like to conclude that Boris Johnson is the fall guy for the establishment. Well, it's not really likely that this buffoon would have made a credible Prime Minister.
His assumed leadership of the Brexit campaign has seriously weakened informed debate, increased ridiculous rhetoric and exposed the prejudice of the Tory party.
Why on Earth would Johnson use the dreaded H-word? After Ken Livingstone's last breathy H-word has only just escaped his lips and left him politically imploded, Boris pulls the same stunt. Is he trying to be the English Donald Trump?
Boris! We are not Americans and the H-word cannot be spoken in Europe, regardless of context, without shock, ridicule and censure. Surely, all politicians must know this.
So why did he do it? Well, with the Tories leading both campaigns, leave and stay, the Conservative Party can only win and lose. There is no doubt they will claim credit for their victory. As for their binary defeat, well with the weakness of all the other political parties in England, does the defeat really matter? And besides they will also have won and that will be more important than their defeat.
So is Johnson the fall guy? He is establishment and the elite want the UK to remain in the EU - just listen to our overlords in the EU, the banks, the IMF and the large corporations.
Johnson I'm sure will be rewarded for his sinking of the Brexit vote. While politically he will be finished, he has done his time, dropped the H-word bomb and will find himself well rewarded with directorships in various multi-national corporations.
