A fore­gone con­clu­sion?

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

GIVEN that Boris John­son has promised to get Brexit done – a prom­ise that he means to keep this time (well, there’s a first time for ev­ery­thing, I sup­pose).

And given that we’re told the “peo­ple” want to get Brexit done (ap­par­ently those who want to stay in the EU aren’t re­ally peo­ple) why don’t we just forego the elec­tion, de­clare Mr John­son PM for the du­ra­tion and use the money saved to buy a few hun­dred feet of rail­way track for HS2 or a new fur coat for the Queen?

After all, I get the im­pres­sion that some of the “peo­ple” would vote for Jack the Rip­per if he promised them Brexit, pre­sum­ably ex­cus­ing his pen­chant for evis­cer­at­ing women as a mere pec­ca­dillo and a price worth pay­ing to win us our coun­try back.

So the Gen­eral Elec­tion re­sult is a fore­gone con­clu­sion any­way. Brian Travis, Sal­ford
