THE derision heaped on Theresa May by the EU and its Remainer cheerleaders was only an aperitif to the all-out war now being waged against Boris Johnson.
Mrs May was at least one of them — a europhile reluctantly doing her duty.
To Remain diehards Boris is a monster.[/caption]
Boris was the face of Brexit. He believes in it. He intends, if made PM, to deliver it “do or die, come what may”. To Remain diehards that makes him a monster.
Brussels, predictably, mocks him. It says his Brexit plan is ludicrous. Except the EU IS finally now taking the threat of No Deal seriously and ordering Ireland to detail its emergency plans.
And what is Brussels’ own strategy? To insist we swallow Mrs May’s dodgy deal, overwhelmingly rejected three times? That’s the definition of madness.
But eurocrat loathing of Boris is nothing compared with that of our political and media Remoaners. “Sir” Ed Davey, the dismal Lib-Dem ex-Cabinet minister, wants to politically “decapitate” him . . . a vile phrase in this volatile climate.
No Deal is dangerous, Davey says — so here’s his alternative: have the Queen simply cancel Brexit. Yes, a monstrous constitutional and democratic outrage, triggering chaos, disorder and division.
But Boris is the crazy one, remember.
Brexit had already made fools of formerly moderate MPs and once-impartial media figures. Boris reduces them all to frothing, incoherent balls of rage.
If he becomes PM we fear for their sanity.
THE sickening Southern Water scandal is a gift for Corbyn.
Fatcat executives trousered seven-figure salaries while starving the private firm of investment. The result? Sewage water polluted beaches and rivers.
So the company doctored samples to cover it up and kept millions flowing into bosses’ bank accounts.
It has rightly been hit with a record fine. But, as the new chief says: “It is perfectly reasonable to say there was dishonesty.” Where, then, are the police? Where are the arrests?
We oppose renationalising water. It wouldn’t improve service or cut bills. But it’s no wonder the idea gets a hearing.
A system enabling such monumental corruption and greed at the expense of the public and our environment is broken.

A Ruddy nerve
THERE is a gaping hole in the Government’s warm words over the disabled.
It cannot tackle lifelong inequalities without restoring funding for kids.
It was disheartening to hear Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd claim the Tories “intend to support disabled people in all phases of their life” without mentioning their £434million in cuts to vital equipment and respite care.
Our Give It Back campaign has demanded it be restored.
How about it, Amber?
