WE thought MPs’ stock hit rock bottom with the expenses scandal. We were wrong.
Voters are now violently repulsed by their sickening parlour games. They cannot believe what they’re witnessing.
It was bad enough that millions were systematically lied to by Remainer MPs promising to respect the Brexit verdict, then refusing to fulfil on it.
Now, outside of Boris Johnson’s Tory ranks, almost every politician seems bent on cancelling 17.4million votes they disagree with, apparently oblivious to the potentially terrible consequences.
They have crippled our pro-Brexit Prime Minister but refuse to replace him. They will make him beg Brussels for yet another humiliating delay. And, since this PM refuses, every witless Tom, Dick and Harriet in Parliament is branding him a liar, dictator and worse.
Each melodramatic, hate-filled Commons speech is a Bafta-worthy performance designed for their social media feeds. It is pathetic and juvenile.
But look at the polls. Outside the Remain Twitter bubble where these third-rate no-marks seek validation, Boris is easily the most popular leader.
Corbyn is fourth behind “don’t know”.
The “worst possible Brexit outcome”? Corbyn as PM. No Deal, voters say, pales into insignificance after that. Overall the Tories also have a big lead. The hate campaign against Boris is, so far, a dud.
All the division, anger and political carnage of these last three years boil down to this: Too many Remainers — including a few Tory MPs, most of Labour’s and all the Lib Dems’ — don’t respect our democracy unless it delivers what they want. No wonder they care so little about destroying public trust in it.
A new election, to choose better and more honest MPs and a majority Government to finally deliver Brexit on October 31, must happen.
Corbyn, the most hated leader in our modern history, is too cowardly to agree.
End of Tory
WHY should Boris reinstate the Remainers who crippled him?
We’re all for a Tory Party with a range of opinions on most issues. Brexit is different. It must be delivered. With no deal Parliament will back, No Deal it is.
How could the PM hand back the whip to those who crashed his Government? How could they stand on a new manifesto with No Deal in it?
Consider, too, their demeanour since defeating their PM: Smirking on TV, branding ex-colleagues “extremists”, vowing to fight them at election time.
What rehabilitation do they deserve?

The hen party
A QUESTION for Labour’s chickens:
If Boris is so terrible, what are you scared of? You’ll beat him easily, right?
It’s either time to change your tune — or your party’s defiant little song:
“We’ll keep the white flag flying here.”
