[Editor’s note: The moment I have long predicted when Boris Johnson sticks the knife in Theresa May’s back has finally come. Boris’s resignation is carefully timed to coincide with the most difficult moment in the Brexit negotiations, the moment when he can do the most damage to the May government.
Boris’s intention by resigning is to bring down the government by forcing May into a corner and leaving her with no option but to resign too, which would lead to a Tory leadership battle into which Boris will throw his hat and due to the machinations of his Zionist-Israeli-Rothschild backers will no doubt win and become both the new Tory leader and horror of horrors – Prime Minister of Britain.
Boris has been waging a calculating campaign ever since he was appointed Foreign Secretary, making carefully aimed statements at every opportunity that were designed to undermine the government so that when the wheels fall off due to the Brexit fiasco Boris looks like the man of the moment as he spouts ‘I told you so’. It’s exactly the same tactic his idol Churchill used in the late 1930s to undermine the Chamberlain government.
Boris’s competitors for the Tory leadership will most likely be the vile upper class elitist Jacob Rees-Mogg and the less vile and more centrist Michael Gove. Expect Boris to win and then to claim to be reuniting the deeply fractured Conservative movement by bringing back into the fold his fellow Zionist-Israeli-Rothschild stooge Nigel Farage, most likely into a major cabinet position, perhaps Chancellor of The Exchequer as Farage is a former City of London banker.
There is also a wider picture to consider which is that Trump needs a controlled faithful servant in Downing Street, just as George Bush Jr. needed Tony Blair. It would not have been possible for Dubya to wage the War On Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq without the backing of Blair’s Britain; therefore we must now be very concerned that Trump is planning to wage war and is just waiting for Boris to assume the leadership role in Britain before doing so.
A further consideration is Russia, Boris has been the leading voice spouting anti-Russian rhetoric and no doubt the timing of the announcement of the death of the female Novichok victim this morning is no coincidence. Both her death and Boris’s resignation are most likely timed to poison the upcoming Trump-Putin summit.
These are becoming interesting times and you all know the old Chinese proverb pointing out the danger of interesting times. Ian]
Boris Johnson quits to add to pressure on May over Brexit
Boris Johnson has resigned as Foreign Secretary amid a growing political crisis over the UK’s Brexit strategy.
He is the second senior cabinet minister to quit within hours following Brexit Secretary David Davis’s exit.
His departure came shortly before Theresa May is due to address Parliament about her new Brexit plan, which has angered many Tory MPs.
In a statement, No 10 thanked Mr Johnson for his work and said a replacement would be announced shortly.
The BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg said Mr Johnson’s exit had turned an “embarrassing and difficult situation for the PM into potentially a full-blown crisis”.
She said he was not any ordinary cabinet minister but was the “face” of the Leave campaign during the 2016 referendum and his departure would fuel speculation about a leadership challenge.
Labour said his exit – on top of Mr Davis’s departure – left Theresa May with “zero authority”.
Former Tory chairman Grant Shapps, who last year called on Mrs May to consider her position, said it was the wrong time for a leadership contest and he hoped it would not happen.
He told the BBC a contest would take three months and “we physically do not have the time for that” given the UK is due to leave the EU next March and both sides want a Brexit deal by October.
Mr Johnson, who has been foreign secretary since June 2016, had been due to attend a summit on the future of the Western Balkans in London but did not show up – fuelling rumours about his imminent departure.
Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson said the government was “in meltdown”.
“This is complete and utter chaos,” he said. “The country is at a standstill with a divided and shambolic government. The prime minister can’t deliver Brexit and has zero authority left.”
But Mr Johnson’s move was welcomed by former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who said the ex-mayor of London had the chance to “save Brexit”.
