Yahoo – Britain’s Prime Minister and Conservative party leader Boris Johnson drives a Union flag-themed JCB, with the words “Get Brexit Done” inside the digger bucket, through a fake wall emblazoned with the word “GRIDLOCK”, during a general election campaign event.
Johnson’s center-right Conservatives have been consistently ahead in the opinion polls but YouGov’s final survey of the campaign predicted they were set only for a narrow majority – with the race tightening. The pollsters’ seat projection put the Conservatives on course for a relatively slender 28-seat majority in parliament’s 650-member lower House of Commons – down from a comfortable 68 forecast by YouGov on November 27. The new poll forecast that the Conservatives would take 339 seats (up 22 on the last general election in 2017), with the Labour main opposition on 231 (down 31). The Britain Elects poll aggregator puts the Conservatives on 43%, Labour on 33%, the Lib Dems on 13%, and the Greens and the Brexit Party on 3% each.
If the Conservatives win, this lifts a big burden off the UK. Very quickly afterwards Boris Johnson will be able to start cutting trade deals, one being with the US. This will help the economies of both the UK and the US and further the Conservative agenda on both sides of the pond.
Spectator – But what if Britain leaves the European Union and makes a success of it? What if the EU, as seems not unlikely, plunges further into political and economic crisis? What if France, that other state with a heightened tradition of national sovereignty, also comes to realise that the European community years should merely be a parenthesis?
The proposed European Constitution, the “No” vote won convincingly with 55% as a consequence of the widespread fear in France over forsaking national sovereignty for that of a federal Europe. Opinion polling regularly records the existence of a substantial group of French Eurosceptics, not least among elements of the yellow vest movement that has taken off under president Macron.
What then if Brexit led to Frexit? And what if the two exits led to a Franco-British Union with a combined GDP ranked 3rd in the world, military power arguably second – and a formidable rugby team. It might also solve the nationality dilemma. Potentially dealing a blow and defeat to the Globalists.
