Boris Johnson says Conservatives on ‘FINAL warning’ as Brexit Party surges in polls
BoJo doubled down on his damning assessment of the Tory Party’s performance in the European Parliament Elections and said they had been dealt a “crushing rebuke” by voters.
He continued: “If we go on like this, we will be fired: dismissed from the job of running the country.”
Boris’s comments, published in the Daily Telegraph, were echoed by rival leadership candidate Jeremy Hunt who believes the party faces an “existential risk” over Brexit.
Taking to Twitter, the Foreign Secretary posted: “Yes, we knew it was coming but still a painful result.
“Existential risk to our party unless we now come together to get Brexit done.”
While some results are yet to come in one thing is certain, the Conservatives have been given a resounding kicking from voters up and down the country.
The Tories have notched a dismal 10% of the total vote, far less than the 25% the party earned in the last EU election.
It is the Conservative’s worst performance since 1832.
Boris believes the only way the party can survive is to deliver Brexit.
Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party stuck the knife in after Theresa May failed to leave the European Union by hoovering up dissatisfied Leave voters who are keen to quit the bloc.
“If we go on like this, we will be fired: dismissed from the job of running the country”
Mrs May’s failure to guide the UK out of the EU cost her position of Prime Minister, triggering a Tory leadership election.
BoJo has declared he will run for the highest office in the country and stressed no-deal must remain an option for the country.
He said: “No one sensible would aim exclusively for a no-deal outcome. No one responsible would take no-deal off the table.”
BoJo will now go up against Michael Gove, Dominic Raab, Matt Hancock, Ester McVey, Andrea Leadsom, Rory Stewart and Jeremy Hunt.
