Boris Johnson is no Johnny-come-lately to the Brexit cause

Following the fallout from Brexit Party candidates standing down in Tory-held seats, some opponents of Boris Johnson continue to portray him as a “Johnny-come-lately” to the Brexit cause. Frequent news articles purport to claim Boris only came round to his belief in exiting the EU at the eleventh hour, specifically on 21st February 2016 when he announced his intention to campaign to Leave. It is high time this nonsense was quashed.Boris was appointed as the Daily Telegraph Brussels Correspondent thirty years ago. Very few politicians in the UK, especially on the right, considered the possibility of Brexit at that time, yet Boris, as a thrusting young journalist, immediately used his brief to stoke up anti-EC (as it was then) sentiment. It was Boris who brought to the attention of the British public the often ludicrous regulations the country was now bound by.

How might the EU react to the possible outcomes of the general election?

The upcoming general election may well turn out to be a de facto second referendum on Brexit. Here is an overview of the different scenarios that are possible and how the EU is likely to position itself in each case:The first scenario, which is taken by most as the base case, is for the Conservatives to gain an absolute majority of seats. If this happens, it is very likely Parliament will simply pass the “Boris deal”, so then Brexit happens. However, Boris Johnson has now promisednot to extend the transition stage, in order to convince Brexit Party voters of his credentials. This increases the chance of a “No Deal” in a year or so, given how ambitious it is to negotiate the future relationship in such a short period. Sabine Weyand, who heads the trade department of the European Commission, has just warned that the UK will only get a “bare bones” deal – meaning only limited market access – if Boris sticks to his short timetable.In 1992, in a referendum, the Swiss narrowly voted against…
