Boris’s Yellow Streak

103

Boris Johnson has offered more evidence that he is a duplicitous snake who only has his own self-interest at heart. During the last general election, the foreign secretary vowed to lie down in front of bulldozers to prevent the expansion of Heathrow Airport. Understandably those people who were foolish enough to believe him took this as a commitment that he would do all within his power to stop the third runway from going ahead.
What he neglected to say at the time was that if it ever comes down to the crunch he will run for the hills. Or more accurately, hastily arrange a trip of no great importance to Afghanistan so that he could be out of the country to dodge an important vote on the issue.
Conservative MPs faced a strict three-line whip to back the plans and under Cabinet collective responsibility ministers must vote with the government on key issues. This meant Boris would have had to resign in order to oppose the project. But he decided to put his career before his constituency which lies close to Heathrow and was conveniently absent. He is a coward utterly devoid of principles and should’ve been sacked long ago. Hopefully, his constituents will remember his spineless inactivity at the next election.

  1. Surely, no one is surprised. Farage, Johnson, and Gove were the champions of the Brexit cause and abandoned ship the moment the Leavers won!???! What a wonderful example of ‘Leaders’ leading by example!

    It can hardly shock anyone that when Boris needs to prove his commitment to causes he loudly promotes is a self-perceived threat to his political ambition. PM Boris and President Trump?? That’s worse than a bogey man to scare children with!! Even his constituents in Uxbridge and South Ruislip will decide it’s time to put him down and consign him to the dustbin of political failures. Just for you, Boris: Victus vale!!

  2. Surely, no one is surprised. Farage, Johnson and Gove – champions of the Leave Campaign were like rats leaving a sinking ship once their unexpected victory had been announced. And now Johnson confirms his cowardice in abandoning his flagship policy of self-justification with the Heathrow runway decision. A man who puts his own political ambition before any sense of honesty, integrity and loyalty. Is it possible that the people of Uxbridge and South Ruislip will continue to support this man who has such low values of morality it beggars belief anyone can think he’s the intellectual with a buffoon’s persona. He’s a classic example of the educated idiot. More fool those who still fall for his odious charade. 🙁 🙁
