It would seem that ‘Vote Remain’ have recruited a new Attack-Dog. None other than the shape and face of ex-Prime Minister John Major! We can only assume that they reasoned that if he could ‘handle’ Ed-Whiner Curry then he could ‘handle’ anything!
He was let loose in the park this morning and immediately ran over to Boorish Johnson and pissed all up his leg. To be fair, he didn’t have a lot of time for Gollum Gove and if he could have found IDS he would certainly have dumped in his pocket.
Here are just a few of the gems Major came out with on the Marr Show this morning.
“On the economy and what would happen if we actually left, the Leave campaign have said absolutely nothing to the British people and what they have said about leaving is fundamentally dishonest and it’s dishonest about the cost of Europe,” Sir John told the Marr show.
“And on the subject that they have veered towards, having lost the economic argument, of immigration, I think their campaign is verging on the squalid.”
He added: “I am angry at the way the British people are being misled, this is much more important than a general election, this is going to affect people, their livelihoods, their future, for a very long time to come and if they are given honest straightforward facts and they decide to leave, then that is the decision the British people take.
“But if they decide to leave on the basis of inaccurate information, inaccurate information known to be inaccurate, then I regard that as deceitful.”
On the NHS he said, “Michael Gove wanted to privatise it, Boris wanted to charge people for using it and Iain Duncan Smith wanted a social insurance system.”
“The NHS is about as safe with them as a pet hamster would be with a hungry python.”
Describing Johnson as an “engaging court jester” he suggested his true motivation was largely driven by personal ambition – but warned him that he “will not have the loyalty of the party he divided” if he becomes the next leader of the Tory Party.
He added: “I think this is a deceitful campaign and, in terms of what they are saying about immigration, what a depressing and awful campaign.”
He also refused to rule out the possibility that this referendum could split the party after June 23.
