Boris Johnson Resigns As Tory Voters Told: "Lose May Or Lose Power"

Conservative voice and former commentator for the Daily Mail, Ms Katie Hopkins, launched an advice to Tory voters over the news of Ms May’s decision to replace Brexit Minister David Davis and the shock resignation of Mr Boris Johnson.

Her one-liner is quite succinct: “Lose May or Lose Power,” or in other words, time for a government reshuffle at the top.

As we explained to you earlier this weekend (see our related coverage), the Tory government held a weekend retreat at Chequers to discuss the Brexit negotiating strategy. During this retreat, it became clear that there are two groups within the Tory government: those urging a ‘soft’ and a ‘hard’ Brexit.

The public by now understands Prime Minister May prefers a ‘soft’ Brexit whilst Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, as well as the now former Brexit Minister David Davis, preferred a ‘hard’ Brexit.

In the end, it was Ms May’s plan that was able to be presented to the general public, only for Mr Davis to offer his resignation afterwards.

He will now be replaced by Mr Dominic Raab, the current housing minister.

The latter was a prominent Leave campaigner during the 2016 referendum.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">There&#39;s got to be a time we &quot;get a bit tougher&quot; with the EU and &quot;this should have been the time&quot; - David Davis tells <a href="">@bbclaurak</a>, follow latest developments <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; BBC Breaking News (@BBCBreaking) <a href="">July 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

In the first interview since his resignation, Mr Davis spoke with the BBC’s Political Editor, Mr Laura Kuenssberg and state he thought his replacement Mr Raab would be "very effective" in the post.

"You hand over a job and tell him what the pitfalls are. That is what I will do."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Well done <a href="">@DavidDavisMP</a>. <br><br>May&#39;s response shows that she is controlled by the civil service. <br><br>For Brexit to succeed we must get rid of this awful, duplicitous PM. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) <a href="">July 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

However, the number of voices going up today who claim that Ms Theresa May has now lost every lost shred of credible leadership are mounting ever higher, whilst the time for presenting a negotiation timeline to the EU is running out.

Related coverage:

Ms May effectively seems to be continuing the same strategy she has applied ever since calling an (unfortunate) election last year, a strategy entitled ‘hold on.’

The problem for the Tory party is that the longer this endures, the bigger their loss at the polls will indeed be.

Furthermore, moments ago, the British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson followed Mr Davis’s lead and resigned from government, leaving Theresa May more solitary than ever.

Going Soft (gradual) allows Small Reversible steps, while still "looking" like they are adhering to the voters wishes.

Thus a Soft exit allows a Quick Return to the Socialist open border dominated EU. Plus allows the EU to milk ($$$$) the situation for some trade penalties down the road.

It will all depend on IF the EU is dominated by European leaders or a collection Metro area turned Middle-Eastern in the few years it will take.
