Conrad had been of the opinion that Theresa May would get Brexit done. Well that wasn’t the case. Hopefully Boris will have much more successful career as PM.
For Boris, outflanking the Remainers is a tricky game of brinksmanship that pits the MPs love of power versus their hatred for the Brexit. If they attempt to sabotage the Brexit, Boris can attempt to block their ability to sit for re-election or even more drastically, trigger a General Election that can have disastrous results for these MPs who have gone against the wishes of their constituents. What Johnson risks is triggering a bloodbath as the public supports the Brexit Party at the expense of Labour and the Tories. Sharing power with Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party wouldn’t please Boris all that much either so it’s a bold threat to use.
