Nigels message to Boris one year after the Brexit Party smashed the establishment “Let us hope that Boris frees us from transition.”
With that said it wasn’t long till the Conservatives ousted May and replaced her with Boris Johnson. Boris pledged to take the UK out of the EU during the December elections under the term “Get Brexit Done” he also promised to find “common ground” and to approach politics with “a new and generous spirit”. This was refreshing to hear, after many years of the previous regime who try to scupper the public vote, twisting Brexit into something unrecognisable from what we voted for in 2016.
Boris Johnson took the UK out of the EU on 31st January 2020, but we had to remain in the single market and customs union under the terms of the transition period. Since then the EU has accused the UK of not playing fair yet its the EU who refuse to offer a free trade deal under similar terms of previous contracts they currently have with third countries. On marking the anniversary, Mr Farage said: “One year ago today The Brexit Party stunned the establishment and easily won the European elections. “Without us, Mrs May would have limped on, and there would have been no Brexit on 31st January. Let us hope that Boris frees us from transition.”
