Why Boris was always going to be ousted from power

The Shock that rang alarm bells with the Left Wing Political Classes on the 23rd June 2016, laid the foundation for what we have witnessed this week. The pack of Baying Wolves were NEVER going to accept the will of the British Public. With the willing assistance of the media, they successfully terrified the masses that leaving the EU would result in a decline in the British economy that would be so great, it would be little more than the entire country falling off a cliff-edge.

The conspiracy began immediately, with David Cameron resigning immediately, giving way to Theresa May, who entered Number 10 with a convincing rhetoric, that she would implement the will of the people, but in reality, her agenda was to scupper Brexit in every way possible, even calling an election when she had no reason to, giving away her majority, creating a hung parliament, frustrating every possibility of us leaving on terms that were to be dictated by us, then attempting on THREE occasions, to present us with a watered-down neutered deal, that would have been little more than remain in disguise.

Personally, I initially had misgivings about Boris, after all, he was a remainer and having a sense for his desire to be Prime Minister, I suspected that he only championed the ‘Leave Campaign’ for the publicity, expecting to lose, as Cameron had, but the British public made their feelings overwhelmingly clear, what was he to do now?

Following his election to Prime Minister by the party, we then witnessed the blatant frustration of every effort made by Boris to secure Brexit, by the left and the treacherous John Bercow. As the drama unfolded before our eyes, we were presented with the greatest defiance of Democracy in generations, but Boris did not capitulate, he took the brave step to prorogue Parliament, then call an election, which saw him win a shock majority, winning by a landslide, the left would NEVER accept that, Democracy in Parliament? That goes against the mindset of these Champagne Marxists.

Finally, Boris successfully helped the UK to finally leave the clutches of the infernal EU, albeit with a few loose ends and a large compromise on our Fishing industry, which did not go down very well, after all, the EU has enjoyed fleecing our Fishing waters for decades, thanks to an incompetent decision by Edward Heath in the 70s.

What are the new rules on fishing?

The post-Brexit trade deal outlines new rules on fishing:

  • EU boats will continue to fish in UK waters for some years to come
  • But UK fishing boats will get a greater share of the fish from UK waters
  • That shift in the share will be phased in between 2021 and 2026, with most of the quota transferred in 2021
  • After that, there’ll be annual negotiations to decide how the catch is shared out between the UK and EU
  • The UK would have the right to completely exclude EU boats after 2026
  • But the EU could respond with taxes on exports of British fish to the EU or by denying UK boats access to EU waters

The UK successfully left the EU on the 31 January 2020 at 11:00 pm GMT.

The backlash from the left was thwarted by the onslaught of Covid, but even through this terrible pandemic, Boris was pressured by those in his party who had a mindset of ‘Control not Leadership’ to terrify the nation, to lock them down and to dictate terms to an entire nation. The over-zealous Scientific advisers were issuing daily reports of doom and gloom, forcing the hand of the PM to implement lockdown, but let us not forget that their every prediction was WRONG!

We were presented with figures based on ‘Died within 28 days of testing positive’ a very cunning way to exaggerate the numbers exponentially. In fact, as we now know, the number of those who had died from Covid, rather than with Covid, with no pre-existing conditions was relatively small.

During this period, the first fatal blow was struck against the Prime Minister, during a working day, he stepped out in to the garden of Number 10, where he was presented by a cake, for his birthday, on the 19th June 2020.

Boris Johnson was ‘ambushed with cake’ at lockdown birthday event, claims Tory MP

Birthday gathering was not ‘pre-mediated’ party, says loyal backbencher

Boris was courteous enough to stay for 10 minutes, long enough for one of the plotters to capture the event from a window at Number 11, they must have been jumping for joy, they were now armed with a political bombshell, which would be released at a time of their choosing. When the story hit the news, we were presented with claims of parties during lockdown,  with the Prime Minister being subsequently proved to have never attended, or even being aware of. This may very well have been his plotters and members of the Civil Service, taking steps to tarnish the credibility of the Prime Minister in his absence.

The media frenzy that followed, was successful in causing the PM serious damage, if enough mud is thrown by a determined media, some of it will invariably stick. The campaign against him was relentless, but the final straw came when the story broke about Chris Pincher, who was appointed Deputy Chief Whip by the PM. It later transpired that the PM was told of allegations against Chris Pincher, making the PM guilty of negligence, but the key word is ‘allegation’ if Chris Pincher were an ethnic female, who was refused a position based on allegations, what would have they said in that case?


At 18.02 on Tuesday the 5th of July, the Chancellor Sajid Javid, resigned, signalling the start of the final showdown against the Prime Minister, he was shortly followed by Rishi Sunak, the Snake who was clearly plotting against the PM for a long time, he even registered his domain ‘ReadyforSunak’ in November last year.

These people have unilaterally taken steps to depose a Democratically elected leader, in the middle of a war in Ukraine, an act that has Putin positively beaming with joy, I think that says it all.


Here is the list of Traitors, in ancient Rome, it was “Et Tu Brute” but this week, “It was you Remainers”

Simon Hart – 10.33pm Wednesday

Mims Davies – 2.26pm Wednesday

Davies resigned as employment minister, saying the Conservative party needs a “fresh start”.

In his resignation letter, he said: “Recent events have made it clear to me that our great party, for which I have campaigned all of my adult life, has become distracted from its core missions by a relentless focus on questions over leadership.”

The loss of Sunak and Javid reflected “a worrying narrowing of the broad church that I believe any Conservative government should seek to achieve”, he added.

Will Quince – 8.25am Wednesday

The children’s minister resigned saying he had “no choice” after he appeared on television to defend Johnson using Downing Street briefings that were not true. His letter said: “Dear prime minister. Thank you for meeting with me yesterday evening and for your sincere apology regarding the briefings I received from No 10 ahead of Monday’s media round, which we now know to be inaccurate.” The Colchester MP is facing a threat from the Lib Dems at the next election.

Laura Trott – 8.06am Wednesday

The MP for Sevenoaks is a rising star from the 2019 intake who resigned as a parliamentary aide to the transport secretary, Grant Shapps. She is a former special adviser to David Cameron, and stepped down saying: “Trust in politics is – and must always be – of the utmost importance, but sadly in recent months this has been lost.”

Alex Chalk – 10.47pm Tuesday

The solicitor general for England and Wales stepped down from his role after weeks on resignation watch. The Cheltenham MP will be defending a marginal seat against the Lib Dems. He said: “Government duty cannot extend to ‘defending the indefensible’.” Chalk wrote that the “cumulative effect of the Owen Paterson debacle, Partygate and now the handling of the former deputy chief whip’s resignation, is that public confidence in the ability of No 10 to uphold the standards of candour expected of a British government has irretrievable broken down”.

Theo Clarke – 10.02pm Tuesday

Another 2019 MP, Clarke is a niece of Jacob Rees-Mogg and was a trade envoy to Kenya. She stepped down from that role citing concerns over how sexual harassment allegations were handled. “As one of the party’s new female MPs and a member of the women and equalities select committee, I take allegations of sexual misconduct very seriously,” she said. “To learn that you chose to elevate a colleague to a position of pastoral care for MPs, whilst in full knowledge of his own wrongdoing, shows a severe lack of judgment and care for your parliamentary party. I was shocked to see colleagues defending the government with assurances that have turned out to be false.”

Virginia Crosbie – 8.58pm Tuesday

Crosbie resigned as parliamentary private secretary at the Wales Office, saying Johnson’s continued premiership risked “irrevocably harming this government”. She wrote that she was “forced to say the sheer number of allegations of impropriety and illegality” centred around Downing Street and Johnson’s premiership made his position untenable. “I am of the view that if you continue in office then you risk irrevocably harming this government, and the Conservative party and will hand the keys of Downing Street to a Labour party unfit to govern.”

Nicola Richards – 8.27pm Tuesday

Richards, another parliamentary private secretary to the Department for Transport, quit saying: “At a time where my constituents are worried about the cost of living and I am doing my best to support them, I cannot bring myself to serve as a PPS under the current circumstances, where the focus is skewed by poor judgment that I don’t wish to be associated with.”

Saqib Bhatti – 7.51pm Tuesday

The parliamentary private secretary to the health secretary quit saying his conscience would not allow him to continue to support this administration. He resigned his role with a statement saying that “recent events have undermined trust and standards in public life”.

Jonathan Gullis – 7.40pm Tuesday

Gullis has been one of Johnson’s staunchest supporters in the Commons, but even he stepped down as a parliamentary private secretary to the Northern Ireland secretary. He said the Conservatives had been too focused on reputational damage over governing. “It is for this reason I can no longer serve as part of your government,” he said.

Bim Afolami – 7.28pm Tuesday

The vice-chair of the Conservatives in effect resigned from his position live on TalkTV, saying he had lost confidence in the prime minister and would be stepping down from his role. He said: “I think what’s been very sad over the recent allegations about the former deputy chief whip and other things that have happened over the last few weeks is that I just don’t think the PM has any longer, not just my support, but I don’t think the support of party, or indeed the country, any more … it has become clear after losing the support of two of his closest cabinet colleagues that the time has come for him to stand down.”

Andrew Murrison – 7pm Tuesday

Murrison, a former defence minister, stepped down as a trade envoy to Morocco with concerns that he could no longer defend the prime minister. He said the “last straw in the rolling chaos of the past six months” was “the unjustifiable implication of Lord McDonald’s letter to the parliamentary committee for standards this morning.

“Others must square, as best they can, their continuing enjoyment of your patronage with their personal sense of decency, honour and integrity but I no longer can,” he added.

Rishi Sunak – 6.11pm Tuesday

Sunak was long known to have had tensions with the prime minister over the direction of economic policy, arguing for measures to bear down on inflation while Johnson wanted immediate tax cuts. He resigned citing differences of opinion over the economy, but also saying: “The public rightly expect government to be conducted properly, competently and seriously.”

Sunak will now be considered a future leadership contender, with his decision to walk out perhaps winning him back some credibility with colleagues after the furore over his wife’s non-dom tax status. He has been close to resigning on several occasions but had appeared to be trying to make things work, with a joint economic speech pencilled in for the coming weeks.

However, his patience ran out after the latest scandal – the handling of the Chris Pincher affair. As chancellor, he was known for the furlough scheme and quick action to prop up businesses during the pandemic. His low points have been getting a fine over attending the prime minister’s birthday party in lockdown and the criticism over his own and his wife’s tax affairs.

Sajid Javid – 6.02pm Tuesday

The former chancellor resigned once before over his differences with Boris Johnson, only to be replaced by Sunak. This time he was the first to trigger a walkout, calling Johnson’s competence into question. “The vote of confidence last month showed that a large number of our colleagues agree. It was a moment for humility, grip and new direction,” he said. “I regret to say, however, that it is clear to me that this situation will not change under your leadership – and you have therefore lost my confidence too.”

As health secretary, Javid has focused on trying to fix health inequalities and dealing with the Covid treatment backlog. But his resignation letter concluded he could no longer serve under Johnson. Like Sunak, he will be considered a potential leadership contender to succeed the prime minister, but, like the former chancellor, he has questions over his own former tax affairs, having admitted he was a non-dom for six years before he was an MP.



These people have placed the UK and ultimately the world in greater danger, as Boris was the only leader to have been training and arming Ukraine, long before the invasion by Putin. Now that he has gone, I have no doubt that the treacherous EU will put pressure on Ukraine to concede territory to Russia, so that they can declare the war over and resume their naive dependence on Russian Gas, before they run out.
