interesting eurosceptic tory grandee who knows the grassroots very well tells me boris johnson and jeremy hunt
Interesting:
Eurosceptic Tory grandee who knows the grassroots very well tells me:
- Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt are neck and neck;
- Boris has been damaged by hiding from Sky debate etc since last Thursday;
- once a narrative like this takes hold it is hard to shake off.

This is my final night following Nigel Farage around the country. He is being greeted like a revivalist preacher by large crowds.
MPs who dismiss him and patronise are misguided. They have to ask: why is he selling out halls across the country? Many of them won't like the answer

i have an idea why doesn t the uk leave the eu on march 29 without a deal save 39bn to help british companies
I have an idea: why doesn't the UK leave the EU on March 29 without a deal, save £39bn to help British companies and unilaterally agree to abide by EU rules for 21 months?
This would allow us to sort out trade deals (having left) which can then start at the end of 2020. #Simples
