It’s Time For Change

If you voted for Brexit, I don’t think you’re stupid. I don’t even think you’re stupid if you voted for Boris Johnson’s Tory Government in 2019. You had your reasons.

But if you can’t see how badly Brexit is going - and how badly Boris Johnson is doing - then you and I really need to talk.

He “Got Brexit Done” by pushing through an arrangement he had always said he wouldn’t accept, involving border checks in the Irish Sea - and now he’s blaming the EU for insisting that the UK follow the agreement he signed up to.

He claims he got the big decisions right with Covid, too - but the UK is 52nd in the world health organisation stats for Covid deaths per capita. 

Yes, vaccinations went well, but he dithered and delayed with lockdown causing thousands of unnecessary deaths, and unnecessary impact on the economy.

Yes, the economy bounced back faster than anyone else in the G7 - but only because it had already fallen the fastest and the furthest. 

They say the cost of living crisis is a global situation, yet inflation in the UK is the worst in the G7, and is forecast to stay higher for longer than any other country. 

On top of a decade of Tory austerity, this is hitting people hard.

It’s time for change. We need a change of Prime Minister within weeks, and we need to change the Government at the next election.

If you don’t agree, I have a friend in Nigeria who would love you to cash a large cheque..
