Clare Bailey MLA

Boris Johnson has no mandate from the people

Tuesday 23 July 2019

Green Party NI Ieader Clare Bailey MLA has commented on Boris Johnson’s selection as Tory leader and future Prime Minster.

“Boris Johnson may have been selected as the next Prime Minister by the Tory Party but has no mandate from the people.

“This new Prime Minister is intent on a hard Brexit. The man who compared a border on the island of Ireland to the boundary between Islington and Camden cares littles about our economic, social and political future.

“Drill down into Boris Johnson’s voting record and rhetoric on environmental issues, women’s rights and social mobility and we see a climate change denying, racist, misogynist.”

Clare concluded:

“The reality is that Boris Johnson has no chance of commanding a majority in a Brexit ravaged Westminster.”
