Boris Johnson can now deliver ‘undeliverable’ Brexit — did Remainers call anything right?

Wrong crowd

REMEMBER how they sneered that Brexit was “undeliverable”? How a trade deal with the EU would take seven years? Did the Remainers call anything right?

Brexit will now be delivered on January 31. We will be out of the EU. And Brussels now looks as keen as Boris Johnson to sign a rapid new free-trade relationship by this time next year.

The PM aims to pass a law banning any extension beyond that. Funny, isn’t it, how the genuine threat of a No Deal exit focuses everyone’s mind?

These negotiations will have a far more respectful tone than those of the last three years. It was always obvious Brussels would only talk in good faith if it was certain we were going to see our referendum result through.

Which makes it all the more scandalous that europhile politicians, many unelected, colluded with the EU and assured them we would reverse Brexit at a second vote. They were grievously harming the national interest.

Most got their just deserts last week.

But they should all hang their heads and apologise for the delay, division and damage they have caused since June 2016.

Never free him

CAB rapist John Worboys must never now be released.

We are relieved to see this remorseless monster get two life sentences, even if the minimum term of six years is derisory. The fact that his parole was overturned, and the reasons for that, must make it impossible to free him again.

It was incredible to hear Worboys described as being as dangerous now as when he was first sentenced. How was the parole board so easily duped?

The Sun is proud of our part in this case and in getting secretive and inept parole hearings opened up to scrutiny.

It is an even bigger triumph for Boris Johnson’s girlfriend Carrie Symonds, who was once drugged by Worboys and helped campaign to keep him in jail.
We congratulate her. But this has been a shameful episode for our justice system.

Working party

FOR a clue how the Tories became the workers’ party, look at the new job figures.

Unemployment, after nine years of Conservative rule, is at its lowest since 1975. Employment is at a record high of 76.2 per cent. Wages are up 3.5 per cent, way ahead of inflation at 1.5 per cent.

Labour’s defeated extremists still navel-gaze from the London bubble about how their discredited socialist ideas would improve working people’s lives. They really should meet some.

In real life, Tory pro-business policies help create work and put food on families’ tables. It’s one reason those who want a hand up and not a handout voted for them in such huge numbers.

It turns out the Tories, not Labour, are for the many and not the few.
