For those of us that want to see Brexit delivered and, in particular, are hopeful of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit, Boris Johnson has made various remarks that his friend and campaign advisor, Sir Lynton Crosby would call ‘Dog Whistles’, that is remarks which call us back to heel like well-trained dogs! 

Of course these remarks might be genuine expressions of Boris’ personal determination and ideological commitment to Brexit “Do or die!” 

Alternatively these remarks might well be being said by Boris Johnson purely for reasons of expediency.  It would therefore be worth reminding ourselves of Boris’ history.

The first thing I should say is that I do personally like Boris’ style.  He is clearly an absolute star and a magnetic personality and performer with tremendous charisma.  He has genuine leadership ability which makes a fantastic change from the dispiriting lack of it of Theresa May and her inner circle.  That said let’s consider his position.

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson was born in the United States and when he attended Oxford University his former tutor at Balliol confirmed that he did so as an American citizen.

More recently as MP for Henley and Editor of the Spectator and then as Mayor of London, Boris had seemed enthusiastically Europhile. 

I remember in a TV programme which he did enthusing on the topic that the EU was the new Roman Empire.  He suggested that what we now needed was a new Caesar Augustus! 

He also at one stage enthusiastically endorsed the idea of Turkey, the land of his Great Grandfather, Ali Kamal (one of the last Sultan’s ministers), joining the EU. 

We then have the occasion when he decided to come out as supporting Leave once David Cameron had called the EU referendum in 2016.  During that campaign he made all sorts of remarks which pleased us Leave supporters. 
However it should be borne in mind that he had done two draft speeches.  One supporting Remain and David Cameron, the other coming out for Leave.  David Cameron has also apparently confirmed that he thought Boris did not believe in Brexit.

I would therefore say it is not clear that Boris coming out for Leave was about commitment and principle, rather than about career and opportunity.

There is also Boris’ family background which is very Europhile, globalist, multi-racial, multi-cultural and metropolitan elitist.  Perhaps not the typical seed bed of patriotism and nationalism!

Now we turn to what is going on at the moment.  Boris has obviously got the leadership of the Conservative Party, partly on the basis of his personality but also partly on the basis of promising to deliver Brexit “Do or die”.  Brexit has therefore been very useful to his career ambitions.

When Boris became Prime Minister, Stephen Barclay became the New Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.  The two of them still could have agreed by Consent that our case “Defend Brexit” would win and agreed that there be a Declaration that we were out on the 29th.  

Indeed, we could have agreed some other date where we would be out if the Government thought there was any reason for having a different date. 

Instead of doing this, despite the fact that Boris, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Stephen Barclay and many Conservative MPs had been lobbied about it, the Government’s lawyers wrote to me and to the Court of Appeal saying that they had received instructions to reiterate the Government’s pleaded Defence.  Although I have asked for confirmation of who ordered it but I think it highly unlikely that that would have been written if the new Prime Minister and Secretary of State had not ordered it. 

A lot of the noise and froth which we read in the media or hear from Boris’ supporters is that he is being almost martyred for the issue of Brexit by the parliamentary Remainers, it is nevertheless worth pausing and considering that Boris had several opportunities to prevent the then Bill becoming law.  The Conservative Peers had lined up many amendments which would have filibustered the Bill so that it could not pass through the House of Lords before Parliament was prorogued and would therefore have been lost.  It has been reported that Boris personally stood the Conservative Peers down and enabled the Bill to pass without objection. 

He also could have refused or delayed Royal Assent to the Bill. There would then have been a further row about whether that was proper to do, but the time would have ticked away and we would have been closer to achieving Brexit with ‘No Deal’. 

He has now signalled that he would consider a ‘No Deal’ Brexit to be a failure. It is also  worth remembering that on the third occasion he did actually vote for Theresa May’s Withdrawal Deal, which, of course, is really more of an abject and almost unconditional surrender document.  From this we can draw the certain conclusion that Boris is not ideologically committed to opposing Theresa May’s deal.  The question of the deal is purely a matter of expediency for him.

We will see over the coming weeks whether he does take any decisions which advance the chances of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit, or whether he in fact prevents that from happening behind a cloak of ‘Dog Whistle’ remarks to Leavers. 

So you might ask me what I think Boris is actually trying to achieve if it is not a clean break Brexit? 

My answer would be that I think what he is trying to achieve is a General Election with him having a good chance of using the Brexit issue to enable him to destroy the Brexit Party and to get a large majority as a result of the election. 

If that election takes place before the 31st October I wouldn’t then be at all surprised if Boris quickly signs us up to what to all intent and purposes is Theresa May’s deal. 

The amusing commentator Rod Liddall suggested that what Boris would sign us up to was “Theresa May’s pig of a deal which Boris had put lipstick and rouge on”!

What do you think?


  1. I think he is for himself!!!

  2. I think he is for himself!!!

  3. Food for thought I do hope he will not stab us in the back.

  4. This is my worry as well. The fact that he voted for May's deal makes it difficult for me to trust him. However he has been consistent in saying he will leave without a deal if he cannot negotiate one. He doesnt seem fazed by any if the problems being created at the moment either not sure if this is a good thing or not. Let's hope he delivers but I fail to see how he can wriggle out of the problems the remainers are creating.

  5. Thank you for revealing that Boris actually stepped in to PREVENT the filibustering, and also refused to delay the Royal Assent! Added to the reports that Boris also secretly offered to stand aside to allow Treason May to be PM in 2016, if she promised to step down before 2020, it looks like the Illuminati are playing "musical chairs".

    Please see this eye-opening article showing why the traitors are dragging out Brexit until 2020:
    "2020 Lisbon Treaty comes into force, and it's worse than any deal".

  6. It galls me to think that yet another pm, would sell out this country and its people, for their own selfish gain.
    The people of this country desperately need a loyal and trustworthy pm, yet one after another have proved disloyal and traitorous. Boris had seemed a possible champion but on his career charger, it looks like he intends to gallop away with unjust gains.
    What a waste.
    All these mps know we left on 29th March 2019, yet not one is loyal to this country, not one is supporting the democratic vote of the people. They may shout Brexit, but they dont uphold the constitution or the law.
    Shame on all those who despicable abuse the positions of power they have. Shame on all those who has brought disgrace to their office. Shame on all those who have betrayed this country and this nation. Shame on them all.
    Thank you Robin, for standing up and fighting so hard for what is right.

  7. I have my concerns & truly hope this is not going to be behind Boris Johnson’s adjenda! Time will tell & Thank you for your honest concerns & opinions
    Sonia Kingham

  8. It's up to Boris whether the conservative party survives the next year.
    No-deal is the only option that will secure their future.

  9. Succinctly sums up my suspicions

  10. I agree with you entirely Robin.

  11. A frightening thought but one I feel is the way things are going to go. Destroy Nigel Garage's hope of entering into partnership then bring WA🐖💄👄

  12. I said from day one when Boris said leave with a deal or without I was very suspect

  13. We will see on which side is Mr. Boris Johnson. Just wait, and time will show true face.

  14. I am starting to lose faith in Boris I'm afraid. At first he seemed to be the Brexit saviour, but as time goes on I do fear that he will bring back May's deal. And faced with that or No Deal, Parliament will pass it and that will be that. No true Brexit at all. And oh how the Remainers will crow !

  15. I personally do not think any deal that takes us out of the eu will be accepted by the commons as they do not want to leave full stop. So I think we are heading for no deal, but I think it is after we have left, that we have to watch Boris very closely with any prospective deal with the eu which in part or whole take us back in under another guise.

  16. I too have many reservations about Boris!
    I too think that basically he will shaft us the british public.
    It seems all his actions are smoke and mirrors.
    I pray I am wrong and have misjudged him!

  17. Could see that this was what was going on from the start. What we need is for a people to realise that the Brexit Party alone are going to be the only party to actually fullfill their promise of a proper Brexit.Tho'if I were Farage I'd be making it clear to voters that a vote for the Brexit Party also means a guarantee that our NHS would be safe from US/other health company vultures. If he wants to win over Lexiteers like myself,and there are millions of us, then that's what he needs to do.

  18. I am glad that there will not be a general election until after the 31st October, because that will make the decision upon who to vote for really easy.

    If we are under any jurisdiction of the ECJ at all, in any way, shape or form, on Nove 1st 2019, then my vote in any subsequent general election will go to the Brexit party.

    If we are completely free from the Jurisdiction of the EJC on Nov 1st 2019, then I will reward the conservative party with my vote.

    It really is that simple.

  19. I think trump had a word with boris to get us out on a no deal. after all boris was involved with spy gate

    1. When Trump was in England, Boris refused to meet him. At the time i wondered what that was about if they are supposed to be buddies. I dont trust BJ for all the reasons Robin has given.
      The fact that his brother resigned makes me very suspicious as well. Seemed like one big act to help the narrative to us that BJ is the underdog here. We do so like an underdog, dont we?
      JRM is a staunch Catholic. I therefore for historical reasons dont trust him either.

  20. Robin, could you please advise us about the 1999 Act which diminished the HoL. There is a video which is telling us that every act since that date has been unlawful bcos the HoL is now unlawfully constituted.

  21. I think something going on but l can not put my finger on it Boris a bit grafty you never know what he's going to do he can go a long with people but also back stabbing them behind there back but what ever happened it will go with a big bang after all it's Halloween 🎃🎃

  22. One thing I will say, after all of Boris's rhetoric, if he lets us down now and we stay at least half in and half out of the EU, his career will be gone, his party will never be elected again and he will be known as the one man who stabbed us all in the back while smiling to our faces. I sincerely hope I'm wrong. As for the election, I absolutely agree that if it's held after 31st Oct, we will have a much cleaer idea of who to vote for....or indeed whether it's even it's even worth voting again when we can be so ignored and dismissed.
