Ex-Conservative Chairman Critical Of ‘Vacuous’ Boris Johnson Speech
The former Chairman of the Pudsey Conservative Association, who resigned his membership on the day Boris Johnson was appointed Prime Minister, has described Johnson’s Conservative Conference speech as “vacuous, irresponsible drivel.”
Dr Jason Aldiss, who served in a succession of senior positions across the Party for almost 25 years, said:
“As ever with Boris Johnson, the hype in no way lived up to the reality.
“His poor attempts at humour when we are is in the midst of a national crisis were characteristically ill-judged, even when delivered to an audience of baying fools.
“He claimed the country is ready for a no-deal Brexit when we’re clearly not.
“He described the Irish border problem – which was never mentioned by the Leave campaign before the referendum – as ‘a technical discussion’ about customs when it is actually about the integrity of the EU Single Market, a genuine threat to the Good Friday Agreement and a severe risk to the future of the Union itself.
“Johnson said he remains determined to deliver Brexit on 31 October ‘come what may’
“But the Benn Act makes a no-deal Brexit illegal.
“We already know that Johnson is a stranger to the truth. Last week’s Supreme Court judgement found that he is also prepared to ignore the rule of law.
“This man cannot be allowed to plunge our nation into the abyss of a no-deal Brexit.
“His supposed ‘final Brexit offer’ to the EU is foolhardy and deliberately designed for failure so he can attempt to avoid personal responsibility for the consequences – as has been his lifelong habit.
“I see no alternative to the direction Johnson’s vile Government is taking us other than its removal from office.
“More vacuous, irresponsible drivel from this clown of a Prime Minister will get us nowhere.”
