‘Bozo’ will try to frighten poorer EU states from approving extension he is legally required to request
The UK government has passed into naked lawlessness this evening, with a leaked text exposing Boris Johnson’s – in reality his sinister chief adviser’s – plan to force a no-deal Brexit in spite of the law passed by MPs forcing him to request an extension if no withdrawal deal has been reached by 19 October.
The known thuggishness of Johnson and his cohort is clear in the plan, which was leaked to the pro-Conservative Spectator in a text message from a Number 10 source:
Johnson will attempt to bully smaller, poorer EU states into vetoing any extension. The text also makes clear the absolute sense of entitlement characterising Johnson’s hard-right clique: any state supporting a request required by UK law ‘will be seen by this government as hostile interference in domestic politics’.
Respecting the UK law is now ‘hostile interference’ in Boris Johnson’s plans.
