"Boris Johnson, cast her Brexit plans as a "a suicide vest" wrapped around the British constitution"

It is incredible that the man who lead the campaign to leave the EU, is now attacking the efforts to work out solutions to the nightmare he created.

It is like someone complaining about water damage to their house after they intentionally set it on fire and the fire department rushed to save it.

True madness.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party faces a "catastrophic split" if she persists with her so-called Chequers proposals on Brexit and 80 or more of her lawmakers are prepared to vote against the proposals, a former junior minister said.

No doubt there are those who oppose it on ideological grounds but most of them are sharks, cannibals or lunatics. After watching decades of Tory bloodbaths on this issue, I’m convinced of this.

Boris Johnson

He’s in a category of his own.

Richard Corbett MEP has clearly taken Tony Benn questions and intentionally misinterpreted there meaning and significance.

Boris Johnson didn't create this nightmare. Theresa May did when she strolled out, claiming she would deliver the Brexit that I and millions of others voted for, before systematically destroying Brexit by making concessions, U-turns and countless blunders. That is what Boris Johnson, and many Brexit supporters, are angry about: Theresa May's failure to deliver the Brexit we voted for. But I for one am not surprised. From the second David Cameron dropped the position of PM on her, I knew she would sabotage Brexit. She was an advocate of remaining after all. She's not pursuing the people's interests, she's serving her own. In other words: Business as usual for politicians. She's no better than Donald Trump.

Not incredible. He’s just making a calculated risk. He could come out with a call for a second referendum tomorrow.
