Vote Boris Johnson or Brexit is toast and your referendum win will count for nothing

IF Brexit is the biggest election issue for you, there is now only one sane choice on Thursday: Boris Johnson’s Tories.It’s not just that the Prime Minister has a deal with the EU ready to go — and can ensure we leave on January 31 once he has a Commons majority.There’s only one sane choice this Thursday – vote Boris or Brexit is toastEPA It’s that Labour has finally come off the fence as a Remain party. The Sun predicted long ago they would betray Leave voters and they now have.That’s why some Remainers who detest Corbyn and his foul thugs will vote for him anyway. If he is installed as PM with Lib Dem and SNP help he will guarantee Brexit’s destruction.Labour has vowed to agree a new surrender to Brussels which, unlike Boris’s deal, keeps us in the customs union, obeying EU rules and paying into its budget — with no immigration controls and no trade deals with the wider world.Corbyn, incredibly, would present this as the “Leave” option in a new referendum, up against simply Remaining…

Apprentice boss Lord Sugar urges Labour supporters to vote Tory to escape Brexit quagmire

APPRENTICE boss Lord Sugar today urges Labour voters to fire Jeremy Corbyn for the sake of the nation.Writing in The Sun, the former Labour peer insists backing Boris Johnson is the only way Britain can escape its Brexit quagmire.The Apprentice’s Lord Sugar insists Labour voters back Boris JohnsonHandout He also says a vote for the Tories is the best route to save Labour in the long-term — by ousting its hapless leader.The business tycoon warned the party’s spending plans “would create economic chaos”.He said: “Jeremy Corbyn has turned Labour into a negative anti-business party that is clueless on how the economy works. His £1.2trillion spending splurge is complete madness.”Dubbing it “the most significant election in my lifetime”, he writes: “As a former Jewish Labour man, this is a difficult thing for me to write.“On Thursday, it’s time for Sun readers to tell Corbyn to resign and get a sensible person to take the helm and make Labour great again.”The lifelong Labour supporter’s inte…

Labour’s refusal to respect the referendum result is losing them life-long voters in places like Crewe

“I have voted Labour all my life, but not this time.”I have lost count of the number of times people have said that to me this week. I am campaigning hard in one of the top marginal seats in this election – Crewe and Nantwich. There were just 48 votes in it last time in a seat that voted just over 60% for Leave.What is going on here exemplifies the sentiment door-knockers in Labour Leave areas are picking up nationwide. The issue of Brexit puts into stark headlights the growing division between the Labour membership in its new metropolitan strongholds and its members and voters in the wider country.Many of the Labour voters I speak to see their refusal to respect the Brexit result as the final step Labour have taken in the wrong direction.Locally their Labour MP – and now candidate – didn’t find time to support a pro-Brexit protest but did manage to support Extinction Rebellion protestors. This is the same person who has spent two years saying they would respect the referendum and now…

Brexiteers must unite behind Boris Johnson or risk being trapped in the EU forever

Since the summer I have been proposing that the two pro-Brexit parties – the Tories and the Brexit Party – forge an alliance to command a considerable majority for Brexiteers in the House of Commons. After Nigel Farage’s Hartlepool announcement before the close of nominations that he was withdrawing Brexit Party candidates in Tory-held seats, I privately flirted with the idea of tactical voting; but now I believe it is time for the 17.4 million to back Boris, or else risk Brexit and a Corbyn-led government.Critics of my previous articles have branded me a ‘sell-out’, and even a ‘Remainer’, which both my friends and family find hilarious, but it is now vital to establish why voting Conservative is the sensible option for two reasons. The first is that Boris Johnson’s deal is tolerable; and the second is that with polling as it is, Brexit is in touching distance. Many of you who are contemplating backing the Tories may tip the entire election and make for an historic December evening in…

BORIS Johnson will say it is time to “send in the bulldozers and smash through the gridlock” in Parliament as he warns the nation how close the polls are to overturning Brexit.The Prime Minister will tomorrow tell voters in key marginals in the West Midlands that there is a “clear and present” danger of another hung parliament if they don’t turn out to support the Tories on Thursday.With three days to the polls, Boris Johnson has asked Leave voters to ‘send in the bulldozers’ to get Brexit donePA:Press Association He said: “The stalemate in parliament has held this country back for too long.“Instead of concentrating on your priorities, Westminster has been mired in division and deadlock.“Politicians have spent so much time shouting at each other and devising ways of wriggling out of Brexit that they have neglected the issues people care about. It’s time to send in the bulldozers and smash through the gridlock.”But Mr Johnson warned Brexit is still in danger as the threat of tactical vo…
