Swinson’s ‘series of calls’ with Johnson belies claim to want to stop no-deal Brexit at all costs
A SKWAWKBOX poll of readers suggests that an overwhelming majority believe that Jo Swinson and her LibDems would prop up Boris Johnson’s Tories – in spite of Swinson’s claim that she will ‘do whatever it takes’ to stop Johnson’s no-deal Brexit – a claim she immediately contradicted by saying she would not support an interim Corbyn premiership to prevent Johnson taking the UK over the Brexit ‘cliff-edge’.
Of the almost three thousand readers who responded, 95% responded that the LibDems would support the Tories again, in spite of the parliamentary near-obliteration they suffered in 2015 after doing so in 2010:
Swinson today tweeted to condemn Boris Johnson’s power-grab prorogation of Parliament to take time away from MPs hoping to block his no-deal Brexit – but her actions and the actions of those who share her worldview have created the space for Johnson to behave as he is.
And it seems a lot of people believe she would switch to supporting his government in a heartbeat if given the chance.
