We Voted Boris; But We Got Jeremy Corbyn, by James Delingpole.
I can’t believe I’m having to write Britain’s epitaph so soon after the joy and jubilation of Brexit Day but look at what Boris Johnson’s ‘Conservatives’ are offering a bemused nation:
- Higher taxes (mansion tax, pensions raids, etc)
- An explosion of grand, unaffordable, and pointless infrastructure projects
- A war on motorists
- No more cooking or heating with gas
- Elevation to the House of Lords for MPs who opposed Brexit
- More green levies and regulations
How is any of this nonsense materially different from the ‘fully automated luxury communism’ Britain would have experienced under Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour?
Red Toryism is running rampant:
I don’t think it’s any exaggeration to say that Boris Johnson’s Tories are the most extreme left-wing Conservative administration in the party’s history. Under cover of Brexit and in the guise of reaching out to all those working classes voters in the Midlands and the North, the Conservatives are rolling out radical measures so aggressively Socialistic that it makes Tony Blair’s benighted era look like Margaret Thatcher’s heyday. …
How weird is it, for example, that after a decade under ‘Conservative’ rule, Britain now has the highest tax burden in over fifty years? …
If Boris Johnson had one job — besides delivering Brexit, obviously — I’d say it was to put as many miles as possible between himself and the failed economic and sociopolitical models of his failed predecessors. …
Instead, he seems to be going in the exact opposite direction.
