Melanie Phillips: Ruthless Johnson signals “Brexit do or die”Labels: Boris Johnson, Brexit, Melanie Phillips
The commentariat has been utterly convulsed by the composition of new prime minister Boris Johnson’s government.
As Remainer ministers and those disloyal to Johnson were either sacked or fell on their swords to be replaced by Brexiteers in every key position, Brexit supporters were as ecstatic as Remainers were choked with horror and rage.
Johnson’s purpose in effecting this ruthless transformation was clear: to send an unequivocal signal that the Remainers’ game is now up. Britain will be leaving the EU on October 31, “do or die”.
