Voters are offered a strong choice over Brexit alongside the usual enthusiastic promises, frightening scenarios, misrepresentations and foggy numbers.
Johnson's Conservative Party will be held under the motto "Get Brexit done. "
The prime minister plans to crack down on the establishment – against the sneaky opposition, lawyers and other elites handed over that he believes have conspired to deny the country freedom from the European Union.
Never mind, Johnson is a scion of privilege ̵
1; the son of a diplomat who was educated in Eton and Oxford and later became a prominent journalist and politician in a country house.
"There is only one way to achieve Brexit in the face of this inexorable situation." Parliamentary obstructionism, these endless voluble fingers crossed "not me" refusing to fulfill the mandate of the people & # 39; said Johnson on Tuesday, & # 39; and that should refresh this Parliament. "
Johnson hopes that his party will be able to regain the parliamentary majority in an election and give him the mandate to conduct Brexit under the terms of the contract of resignation negotiated with E.U. Leader.
The new Brexit party, led by talk show presenter Nigel Farage, will account for 200 percent of Brexit and argue: why even talk to the Europeans at all? Let us break down.
The Liberal Democrats will work to stop Brexit. And a second referendum.
The Scottish National Party will work to stay in the European Union – and, moreover, to promote Scottish independence.
And then there's Jeremy Corbyn's Labor Party, now the main opposition.
] Labor has announced that it will seek a 21st century socialist agenda to regain control of utilities and transportation, pursue a radical Green New Deal to tackle climate change, and send workers to corporate boards. It will be a campaign with the motto: "For the many, not for the few."
"We will launch the most ambitious, radical campaign for real change," Corbyn promised on Tuesday.
But Labor has taken an awkward position Brexit. The official plan of the party is: let's win the election; then let us negotiate a very soft, very closely aligned "Labor Brexit" with Europe; Let's have a Labor Party conference to decide if we want to support the deal. and finally, we want to hold a second referendum to see if people support it.
Johnson said that Corbyn simply wanted Brexit "outsourced" forever. The result will be open to interpretation and manipulation.
"This will be a Brexit referendum, whether we like it or not," Phillips told parliament. "Except we will not be clear and we will not be honest, none of us will be, and what we get back, we will be able to see what we want to see."
Recent opinion polls have put the Conservative Party 10 points above work. But pollsters warn his early days. Johnson's predecessor, Theresa May, had a 20-point advantage over Labor when she made a call in April 2017. Labor reduced this lead in the course of the election campaign and cost May its parliamentary majority.
John Curtice, a professor of politics at Strathclyde University, said that if Johnson maintains his 10-point lead up to Election Day – and that's a big drawback – that should be enough to get a majority vote, not necessarily one overwhelming but probably enough to do what he wants to do at Brexit. "
But Curtice noted that Johnson's Conservatives, if they do not win the overall majority, have fewer friends than Labor with whom they can do business. In the election campaign, Johnson resumed Tuesday night ten of the 21 MPs he had expelled from the Conservative Party last month. His graces include Nicholas Soames, the grandson of Winston Churchill.
The agreement on an election presumably endorsed by the House of Lords this week is a rare good news for Johnson, who suffered defeat after being defeated as Conservative Party Leader and Prime Minister in July.
Legislators have basically approved the Brexit deal negotiated with E.U. Leader, but then the lower house said no to the accelerated schedule Johnson wanted the legislation to be approved.
In this vote, he needed the support of two-thirds of lawmakers – and fell far short of expectations. Tuesday's bill required only a simple majority, though it won easily, 438 to 20, after opposition parties dropped their objections.
Outgoing European Commission President Donald Tusk spent more time with Brexit during his five-year stay, as he likely wanted term, announced Tuesday that the 27 remaining EU members had officially approved a Brexit extension by the end of January.
"It could be the last one. Please use this time optimally. " he urged the British and added:" I keep my fingers crossed. "
