Tory power broker who has said least about Johnson so far - Farage. Highly significant— Andrew Adonis (@Andrew_Adonis) 16 June 2019
Farage is why there won’t be early election unless (10% chance?) Johnson tries breathtaking boldness of an electoral pact giving Farage say 30 seats. Then Farage becomes Tory leader after him
Farage hasn't been a Tory since 1992, let alone a Tory MP. How does Adonis draw this conclusion? The Brexit Party is absorbed into the Tories? Having just won seats in the Brexit heartlands that were once Labour? That makes sense. The mind boggles.
Meanwhile, as if spurred on by Adonis, the Farage tweeted several hours later to remind the Boris that we've heard all this shit before...
When I hear @BorisJohnson say we will leave on the 31st of October, I am reminded that Mrs May told us 108 times that we would leave on the 29th of March. https://t.co/Klp9yycr6N— Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) June 16, 2019
We live in interesting times, thankfully we don't all live inside the crazed mind of Lord Adonis.
