Channel 4’s Rigged Leadership Debate Had Two Winners – Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage

Conservative MP Boris Johnson (L) leaves a house in London on June 7, 2019. - Boris Johnson, considered the frontrunner to become Britain's next prime minister, is Friday challenging a private prosecution bid accusing him of misconduct in public office over the claim that Britain sends £350 million ($440 million, …

The two runaway winners of last night’s Channel 4’s Conservative leadership contender debate were Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage.

Boris Johnson won with his genius strategy of not bothering to turn up – having calculated, correctly, that it was beneath his dignity.

Nigel Farage won because the whole grotesque event was an excruciating reminder of how constipated Britain badly needs the purgative force of The Brexit Party.

Gosh, I felt almost sorry for the Conservative candidates – Michael Gove, Sajid Javid, Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab and Rory Stewart – who had been railroaded into participating in this excruciating and often nauseating farce.

Boris – pointedly represented by an empty chair – came across as calm, collected, refreshingly free of cant, and utterly impervious to the idiotic questions tossed in his direction by Channel 4’s house imbecile Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

EXCLUSIVE — Tory Brexiteer Tells Breitbart: Party Needs Agreement With ‘Kingmaker’ Nigel Farage

Boris Johnson is serious about delivering Brexit but he’ll probably only be able to do this by calling an early General Election in October and by reaching an accommodation with The Brexit Party’s leader Nigel Farage.

So says Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

Bridgen is a leading member of the European Research Group (ERG), the hardcore of Brexiteers — aka the Spartans — who mostly refused to accede to Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement because it didn’t deliver meaningful Brexit.

Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Back Boris Johnson…

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - JUNE 21: British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson walks through the House of Commons to attend the the State Opening of Parliament taking place in the House of Lords at the Palace of Westminster on June 21, 2017 in London, United Kingdom. This year saw a scaled-back …

Boris Johnson, it is generally agreed, is the candidate most likely to rescue the Conservative Party from the doldrums and deliver meaningful Brexit.

He’s a hard (-ish) Brexiteer; he’s charismatic; he has strong brand recognition from the English shires to the White House.

Also, according to Margaret Thatcher biographer and immensely sound Tory Charles Moore, he’s a more than halfway decent conservative. (As Moore points out, there is much disagreement on what a ‘conservative’ actually is, but you know one when you see one. At least Moore does. He has conservative-spotting antennae similar to a ‘gaydar’.)

Here is Moore’s verdict:

Boris Johnson: not a virtue-signaller (just as well, given his lack of virtue); loves freedom, prefers anarchy to authority; more humour than humbug, more imagination than ideology. 7/10.

I agree with all this. I like Boris personally. I agree he probably is the Conservative Party’s best hope (especially if he gets sensible people like Steve Baker, Priti Patel, Jacob Rees-Mogg to do the difficult, important stuff for him while Boris just swans around the world looking charmingly dishevelled and quoting Horace epigrams at bemused statesmen).

But I could never vote for him personally, after this:

BIRMINGHAM, England –Have a look at the video I filmed earlier of the queues to see de facto Brexit leader Boris Johnson at the Conservative Party Conference.

They did not queue up for that hour, I suspect, to listen to the speech Boris Johnson actually gave.

Boris’s Brexit ‘Suicide Vest’ Metaphor Was Perfect

The crumbling, decadent, intellectually and morally bankrupt regime of failed Prime Minister Theresa May has declared total war on Boris Johnson.

Nothing is now off limits, apparently — from his complicated private life to his use of metaphor…

The Remainer establishment’s below-the-belt attacks on Boris’s domestic affairs are ugly but understandable: all is fair in love, politics, and total war.

But what are risible beyond measure are its attempts to suggest that Boris is unsuitable for office because of his colourful use of language.
