My questions for Boris


A GENERAL Election is not simply about Brexit, it’s about government over five years. This applies just as much to the Brexit Party.

There are many aspects of the Maybot’s withdrawal agreement that I wouldn’t touch and I’ll list the most important.

National sovereignty – I don’t like Johnson’s Northern Ireland package any more than does the DUP.

I won’t vote for the European Court of Justice to have any influence on our independent judiciary. We were the original country to make our judiciary independent. There are about fifty Commonwealth countries with an independent judiciary as part of our legacy to them. Forget it, Boris.

I want the Supreme Court abolished.

I am not at all content that we leave the EU yet remain liable for £500billion if the European Central Bank has to be rescued rather than allowed to collapse.

I want to know just how closely Boris intends to sail with the EU. The only way that we’re going to exploit fully the incredible opportunities that come with Brexit is to do what suits us best, not what suits the Ruhr and North Rhine-Westphalia, Stuttgart and Wolfsburg.

I do not regard abiding by the NATO 2 per cent of GNP on defence as a serious strategy. According to the German strategic plan – Vorausschau 2040, or Strategic Outlook 2040 – NATO is breaking up, America will not come to Europe’s aid under Article 5 of the treaty, so Germany must look after herself in future. Germany must keep control of her export markets by binding the eurozone to her and by keeping the satellite economies within the gravity field of the German economic Sun. We are the largest planet, our economy equal to the nineteen smallest economies of the EU. Vorausschau 2040 was drawn up by the German Defence Ministry when Ursula von der Leyen was the minister. She is shortly to become President of the EU Commission. She will follow the plan after Merkel steps down.

We need a diplomatic and defence strategy that makes us ready and able to deal with a completely new situation. That requires doubling the money we spend on diplomacy and defence.

Boris, I want to know how you propose to open our markets to finished products from Commonwealth countries. Let’s make it worth joining the Commonwealth for more trade and friends with powerful armed forces – and money – who are not trying to rip you off like Russia and China. Let’s hear how you’re going to make global Britain lead again.

I want to hear how you’re going to make life easier for research and industry and business to launch the fourth industrial revolution.

I want to know about your plans for scrapping EU rules and regulations which our rubber stamp Parliament have been busy not reading for the last forty-five years.

I don’t want to see on a list of candidates the same mediocre shower who have polished their trouser seats for the last twenty years. Your party recruited Remainers from 1973 onwards. Change the approach and prove it by changing the faces.

You’re supposed to be dying in a ditch around now – above all, let’s have some honesty for a change.

I’ll add one more bit of advice to the Prime Minister. The danger for him is that the voters see all the above and the longer he tries to brush it off, the more they will think that the Tory Party’s survival is more important than them. Cummings may end up increasing the vote for the Brexit Party. I hope he does because we don’t want this Rotten Parliament back. We need new faces who want to represent the voters.
