Finally. After long last Brexit will happen. The Conservatives have achieved a seismic landslide under the inspired leadership of Boris Johnson. Now, we must look ahead to the upcoming period of stability and opportunity.
The time for naval gazing is over. With a large Conservative majority the United Kingdom can now turn and face the world. To engage with the Commonwealth again, to build the CANZUK free trade area and, yes, a free trade agreement with the United States. As for the EU, yes, a free trade agreement will ideally be agreed, but the EU has lost all power – the Conservative manifesto committed to no extension for the extension period and with that large majority the EU has no parliamentary allies with any power. Global Britain is truly coming.
Domestically, we are in a good position. The Remainers and socialists massively overplayed their hand and are now vanquished. The Remainers could have given the EU almost all of what they wanted by agreeing to May’s deal – but even May’s deal, which gave almost complete power over the UK to the EU in the backstop was not enough for them and their Euro-fanaticism. They helped patriots vote down her deal and now Brexit is assured. The Labour party, in their pursuit of pure Britain and Jew hating socialist nirvana, made themselves so unelectable that Boris was able to win in areas that were previously unthinkable for Tories – in Blair’s old seat of Sedgefield and Dennis Skinner’s Bolshover for example – smashing Labour’s “red wall.” The Labour party has now had its worst election result since 1935 – their road back will be a long one.
With this majority the Conservative party must now make the case for Conservatism. For lower taxes, free trade, support for the armed forces – and yes for a smaller state. Yes, some increased infrastructure, police and defence spending is long overdue – but the government must resist the siren calls to ignore the lessons of the importance of fiscal prudence of the Cameron years and must still be responsible with taxpayer money.
Today we must all celebrate. We got Brexit done. We smashed the anti-Semitic socialist Labour party and their red wall. The arch-europhiles like Swinson, Grieve, Soubry and Bercow are are gone. Now, the hard work begins. Congratulations Prime Minister Boris Johnson. and the Conservative Party. Here’s to 5 years of Global Britain!
