Last year the ex-Mayor of London and the likely future Prime Minister of Britain slammed Church of England clerics who want Islamic law incorporated into British law. Boris Johnson, back then, said that Sharia law is “absolutely unacceptable”. Given that Boris also supported the exit campaign, I believe he will be a safe pair of hands for Britain. Britain needs a strong leader who truly believes in equality before the law. as well as a leader who believes in Britain controlling Britain’s borders and not  bureaucrats like the European Union.

 

…Speaking on LBC radio this morning, the London Mayor said he was opposed to “a Sharia system running in parallel with UK justice.”His remarks come a day after Home Secretary Theresa May called for an investigation into the application of Sharia law in England and Wales if Conservatives win the General Election. But the mayor said he took “grave exception” to Church of England clerics who suggest the principles of Sharia could be introduced into the legal system.

SST Editor predicts Boris will get the Commonwealth Cold Shoulder – yeah, nah

Jonathan Milne is a good guy, but prone to histrionics from time to time. He’s a bit wet too, but for a journalist he is pretty ethical and straight up.

He comments on Boris Johnson and shows his liberal y-fronts in the process.

Boris Johnson was a gift from his classical Greek gods to a young journalist in search of a story.

When he was a Conservative Party education spokesman and I was in London writing for The Times Educational Supplement, I’d give him a call when I needed a story on deadline. I knew if I talked to him long enough, he’d say something outrageous, something seemingly ridiculous, something secretly smart in its populist appeal.

Well, in leading Britain to its own “independence day”, Johnson has outdone himself. This scholar of Latin and ancient Greek, who turned against Europe and incited scepticism as the Daily Telegraph’s Brussels correspondent, has now persuaded Britain to turn in on itself and essentially shut down its borders with the continent.

Once, Johnson was seen as a lovable tousle-haired toff, tottering around London on his pushbike. Now, carried by an uncomfortable coalition of struggling blue-collar workers and the monied blue-blooded upper classes, he could soon be Prime Minister. A poll running on the Telegraph website yesterday showed him already far ahead of his Conservative colleagues with 44 per cent support to become Prime Minister.   Read more »

Done like a dog’s dinner, says Audrey Young about David Cameron

Audrey Young provides her opinion on Brexit with a slight segue to John Key and his own referendum troubles.

David Cameron would never have called a referendum on the EU if he thought he would be done like a dog’s dinner, as he has been.

He had supreme confidence in his leadership ability and powers of persuasion when he announced in 2013 why he wanted a referendum. He over-estimated.

It has mild echoes of a far less important referendum promoted by his friend and a similarly unpersuasive Prime Minister John Key on changing the flag.

Cameron fittingly announced tonight he will relinquish his captain’s cap before the Conservatives conference in Birmingham, on October 2.

He has shown leadership in resigning. I wonder when Jeremy Corbyn will likewise show some leadership by resigning, having led Labour down the wrong path of the EU?

[H]istory will define him as a loser and Remainers will beat him up for a miscalculation in holding the referendum at all. So why did he?

EU membership had become such a divisive issue in Britain, he felt it had to be confronted properly.

As Cameron said in his 2013 speech: “Democratic consent for the EU in Britain is now wafer thin.”

You don’t answer the growing perception of a deficit of democracy with another commission of inquiry.

Hero to Zero: David Cameron gone after Brexit vote

Politics is a fickle beast: you can go from hero to zero in the time it takes to count the votes in a referendum.

David Cameron looked on top of the world a few short months ago, with an opposition leader who is completely tits. However, he backed the wrong horse in the EU referendum and now must fall on his sword. It’s what leaders do, and David Cameron has.

James Delingpole explains:

“How would it be for David Cameron if he lost this Referendum?”

When a BBC crew asked me this two days ago I don’t think either they or I imagined for a moment that this scenario would come to pass.

“It would be an utter disaster for him!” I said, with perhaps a hint of glee.

But it’s not at all how I’m feeling right now. Actually, in the end, Schadenfreude is an ugly emotion. Dave and I were friends once and though he has done an awful lot since as a politician which has irritated me beyond measure, I can take no joy in his downfall.

It was a self-inflicted downfall too, which is what must make it even harder to bear for him.

Poms vote to Brexit, Porridge Wogs want to stay

Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 3.54.43 PM

The EU referendum results aren’t yet final but it is almost certain that it is for Brexit.

The BBC and ITV have declared Leave wins, as results continue to show a much stronger Leave vote in electorates that supported leaving than Stay votes in those electorates that voted stay.

All major outlets are now calling it for Leave.

Only Scotland massively supported staying in the EU and now they will likely leave the UK. The Poms will be extremely happy if the Porridge Wogs leave. Labour will be gutted though as it is their stronghold.   Read more »

When an MP has to say they are loyal…they aren’t

Boris Johnson has professed his undying loyalty to David Cameron…watch for a coup shortly after the Brexit vote.

Boris Johnson was embroiled in an extraordinary row last night after he admitted discussing the possibility of a leadership challenge against David Cameron with a fellow Tory MP.

Mr Johnson, the clear favourite to be the next Tory leader, met Alec Shelbrooke in his Commons office and speculated about the number of Tory MPs prepared to back a no-confidence vote in the Prime Minister.

According to one version of the encounter, Boris said: ‘Are there 50 names?’ – a reference to the number of renegade MPs required to trigger a contest.

The former London Mayor last night confirmed that he met Mr Shelbrooke in his office and held a conversation about how many Tory MPs backed a coup – but insisted he had talked about ‘how vital it was to keep the party together under Dave’s leadership’.

The secret meeting comes as anti-Cameron plotters step up their activity following a spate of polls showing the referendum on a knife edge.   Read more »

That’ll learn the idiot world leaders who think Poms will listen to them

The Brexit camp is leading in the latest poll.

The leave campaign has picked up momentum and taken a three-point lead over remain in the latest Observer/Opinium poll on the EU referendum. The Brexiters now stand on 43%, while 40% say they support the campaign to keep the UK in the union.

The poll suggests the remain camp has lost four percentage points in the last two weeks, during which Boris Johnson and Michael Gove have relentlessly campaigned on the theme of immigration.

The leave campaign appears to have picked up three percentage points. The potential in the leave campaign’s strategy is reflected in responses suggesting that two in five voters (41%) cite immigration as one of their two most important issues when deciding how to vote. Just over a third (35%) cite Britain’s ability to make its own laws without EU interference and 29% cite the impact of leaving on the UK economy.

Half of the 2,007 people surveyed said they believed that immigration would be under better control if the UK did leave the EU. Twelve percent felt that the UK would have more control if the country retained its EU membership, and 24% said there would be little difference.   Read more »

The force is strong with this one

I wonder when Boris Johnson will admit to being a Sith Lord?

Boris Johnson wins sledge of the year for his limerick about Recep Tayyip Erdoğan:

Boris Johnson has won a £1,000 prize for a rude poem about the Turkish president having sex with a goat.

The former mayor of London’s limerick, published by the Spectator as a rebuff to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s efforts to prosecute a German comedian’s offensive poem, also calls the president a “wankerer”.

Johnson, a former editor of the magazine, won the Spectator’s “President Erdoğan offensive poetry competition”, despite judge Douglas Murray saying the contest had received thousands of entries. The prize money has been donated by a reader.

The limerick was written off-the-cuff by the Conservative MP during an interview with the Swiss weekly magazine Die Weltwoche.

Great sledge from Boris

Boris Johnson is sledging out David Cameron easily.

Boris Johnson’s dispute with David Cameron over the EU deepened on Friday night after he called the Prime Minister and his allies the “Gerald Ratners of modern politics”.

In a major speech to mark the opening day of EU referendum campaigning, Mr Johnson accused Mr Cameron and his colleagues of pretending to be a eurosceptics despite “loving the idea of a federal Europe” and said that they do not have a “shred of idealism”.

But television viewers watching events in Manchester were treated to bizarre scenes as the London mayor demanded that a reporter stop broadcasting on-air from the back of the auditorium.   Read more »
