Johnson’s posturing exposed by court documents
Government documents disclosed as part of the recent prorogation case in the Scottish courts have revealed that Boris Johnson does intend to ask the EU for a Brexit extension, if the UK has not agreed a withdrawal deal by 19 October. Johnson, of course, has been insisting at every opportunity that he will not.
One Labour activist summed up the effect of this revelation in the pithiest terms:
Johnson’s bag of posturing, bluster and hot air has been punctured – not to mention his fundamental dishonesty.
Jeremy Corbyn remains the UK’s only hope for the sane middle – on Brexit and everything else.
