Less Than Half Of Brits Believe UK Will Leave The EU On Oct 31
I’m one of those disbelieving Brits.
I don’t think there’s any chance whatever of Britain leaving the EU on or before 31 October 2019. There are simply too many obstructions. Even if Boris Johnson really intends to leave (and I’m not sure he does), I don’t think he can pull it off in the first 3 months of his administration.
He’s up against 1) the EU, 2) all the Remainers in Parliament, and 3) outgoing PM Theresa May who has probably done everything in her powers as Prime Minister to ensure that any successor finds the way out of the EU comprehensively barred.
And I think that when Boris fails to get Britain out of the EU by 31 October, there’ll be further collapse in faith in government by the British people. We’re going to feel even more betrayed than we already are. And the next election will very likely see the destruction of a Conservative party that betrayed the British people. Boris may well only be PM for a few months before he too gets swept away.
Not that I think there’s much chance of a Corbyn Labour government. For the Labour party is disintegrating as well. And Corbyn himself is a symptom of the terminal decay of the Labour party.
There is, as Nigel Farage says in the video below, made a few days ago for the Daily Caller in the USA, a political revolution under way. It’s sweeping the world. 2016 was just the beginning. We’ve had enough. We’ve had enough of being lied to.
And, speaking for myself, I’ve had enough of smoking bans. I’ve had enough of Tobacco Control’s lies. And I have no doubt that Nigel Farage has had enough too. And if he does at some point become Britain’s Prime Minister (something that now seems not only plausible, but even quite likely) I have no doubt he’ll do something about them.
