Merely a few days after his election victory Johnson has already made crystal clear what ‘Get Brexit done’ means. The section of his rapidly spelt out agenda which attracted immediate left-wing media attention is the assault on working class rights in Britain. But considered internationally deeply threatening is that Johnson is adding Britain to Trump’s US, Bolsonaro’s Brazil, Saudi Arabia and other forces in a policy heading to climate catastrophe.
The party on which Johnson is relying to deliver Brexit and austerity is not the Tories. It is the LibDems.
The crisis around Brexit in political terms is the deepest one for Britain since World War II and from a legal/constitutional viewpoint it is unprecedented for over 300 years. Such a depth of crisis can therefore only be propelled by huge social forces.
As the deadline of 31 October approaches it is entirely clear that the political situation is polarising around a choice between Boris Johnson’s attempted coup against parliament to achieve No Deal and Jeremy Corbyn’s efforts to stop it.
This autumn Britain will enter its biggest political crisis since World War II as Johnson, Farage and Trump launch their attempt to force through a No Deal/Hard Brexit – a fundamental attack on the working class and oppressed.
Following the Euro-elections, and May’s announced resignation as Tory party leader, due on 7 June, it is clear the Tories’ hard right Brexiteer wing, backed by and/or working with Trump and Farage, will take control of the Tory Party.
