Readers’ comments: Boris’s nuclear options


In response to Timothy Bradshaw: Boris – from Churchill to Chamberlain,

OK, after a period of reflection where I briefly considered jumping off my house roof, I’ve decided to revisit this most horrendous of all CW articles.

They say the bravest and most ferocious soldiers are those who recognise the futility of their position so fight unhindered by fear as in their minds they’re already dead. Well, if Boris’s position, and more importantly Brexit’s, really IS this bad, and I think it is, then perhaps it may also prove strangely liberating?

Boris has two choices.

1. Trigger the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. It will cause fury and a flurry of legal challenges from the usual suspects, but could be utterly heroic.

2. His entire government should resign. Yes, all of them. Every last one. This would throw the Opposition into trying to form a government, something which I strongly suspect will be beyond them. (See Jo Swinson’s bone-headed refusal to consider Corbyn even as a stop-gap GNU PM.) That is how to drive the GE he wants and from there secure the majority needed to f**k Bercow and the rest of the Traitor class as they so richly deserve.

They’re both nuclear options, but it’s that or disastrous ignominy forever. Not to mention Tory wipeout. Select your poison and prepare to go down fighting like a hero, Boris. Just maybe, against all the odds, you’ll be the last man standing.

Cameron has made the false allegation that Boris just joined leave for his own gain. Well Cameron’s judgement has been brought into much question.

Cameron thought he would win with about 70 per cent. So how is Boris a chancer, when he supports a cause that Cameron is certain will lose? Also Boris was the Daily Telegraph Brussels reporter for five years. And on almost a daily basis wrote about the shenanigans of the EU.

As a Leaver wanting a WTO exit from the EU, the one thing that is being largely overlooked, if Boris sells us out by accepting a BRINO deal, is that such a deal would mean the end of his government and in all probability the Conservative Party as well. The Conservative party, on the back of May’s deal, polled just 9 per cent in the European elections this year and it was won by the Brexit Party.

Any sell-out on a BRINO deal would mean a resurgent Brexit party fighting every Tory seat, except perhaps those held by Tories who voted against such a deal, and that would certainly put Boris out of power and he might even lose his own seat. I think that is last thing Boris wants so I’m still hopeful he will give us a WTO Brexit on 31 October as I see that is the only way he could hope to win the next General Election.
