Breaking News – Rachel Johnson explains why she ditched the party of her Foreign Secretary brother Boris and defected to the Lib Dems
On this morning’s Andrew Marr Show on BBC1, Rachel Johnson was interviewed about her decision to defect to the Liberal Democrat Party.
Explaining her rationale for ditching the Tories and the party of her Brexit supporting Foreign Secretary brother, Boris Johnson, Rachel Johnson commented:
“This is single issue election. We could be going over a cliff on a hard Brexit… Everything on the table from last June is now off the table. Business needs to stay in the Single Market. It’s all lose, lose, lose… A second referendum gives the country another go”.
Answering a question about whether she plans to stand as a candidate herself, Johnson, a columnist for the Mail on Sunday, remarked:
“This is my paper making mischief to embarrass me… [But I am] not ruling anything out”.
Later, in the segment, she tempered this further by adding:
“I am very tempted to campaign in my constituency of Kensington and Chelsea”.
Given her comments, The Steeple Times urges Rachel Johnson to join with us to support Gina Miller’s Best for Britain tactical voting campaign and suggests she also throws her campaigning efforts behind the Liberal Democrats’ Annabel Mullin for Kensington and Louise Rowntree for Chelsea & Fulham.
I am doing exactly the same as Rachel. I’ve only ever voted Conservative and now this pensioner has finally realised that Britain’s Brexit mistake must be stopped. We need to save the Single Market. Vote Lib Dem.
Ethel, we know you don’t live in Westminster. But we do know that you are resident in a care home near Haslemere with delusions that anyone is remotely interested in an old frump!
Well done Rachel and go girls! You are all standing up for Britain and we love you!
I cannot work out who is the more irritating of the siblings…she, or her blundering brother.
Despite their pretence at being English, these Johnson’s are resolutely of Turkish origin. Their family interests have never been aligned with Great Britain.
The sooner May dumps B. Johnson the better.
Rachel Johnson was, simply put, amazing. She spoke for us all and she is simply fantastic. Her brother is a cretin for betraying his country and nobody should forget that EVER.
Gina, Rachel, Annabel and Louise – Ladies I love!
