Boris Johnson : the 30-day spin

Anorak Thursday, 22 August 2019
Boris Johnson : the 30-day spinWhen Boris Johnson met German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the outcome was, depending on your spin, a pledge to do a Brexit deal in 30 days or a threat to end it all after just 30 days. The backstop – the hope of avoiding a hard Irish border – can be re-negotiated. Maybe.

But as big as the story of politicking is the realisation that even the Labour supporting Mirror now calls the Prime Minister ‘Boris’ and leads with an image of him looking jovial.

‘Boris’

The Final Solution

Not a deadline. Not calling his bluff – but an “offer”

The Daily Express calls Merkel’s move “a major concession; The Sun says it is an “opportunity”. The i says she has given “orders”. The Daily Telegraph says the PM has scored “a victory”. The Mail says Johnson could be “on the brink of a triumphant breakthrough”. The Guardian says Merkel has put “the responsibility for the UK crashing out of the EU firmly at the prime minister’s door”. The Financial Times hears the leader of German parliament’s foreign affairs committee says Johnson is using Merkel to show the British he had tried everything, so he could then blame EU when it all goes wrong.
