Boris Johnson failed to trick Jeremy Corbyn into an early general election and deliver Brexit
Boris Johnson decided to have an early general election, because he had a cunning plan – to deliver Brexit by dissolving the British parliament, and without elected MPs, the prime minister would be free to take the UK out of the EU, with or without a deal!
Thanks to Gina Miller, in early 2017, the Supreme Court decided that the prime minister can’t use monarchical powers to force through a Brexit deal without first getting the consent of the British parliament:
“ The article 50 process must and will involve a partnership between Parliament and the Executive. But that does not mean that legislation is required simply to initiate it. Legislation will undoubtedly be required to implement withdrawal, but the process, including the form and timing of any legislation, can and should be determined by Parliament not by the courts. That involves no breach of the constitutional principles which have been entrenched in our law since the 17th century, and no threat to the fundamental principle of Parliamentary sovereignty.”
Therefore, the Supreme Court’s decision explicitly states that it is up to the British people to decide whether to leave or stay in the EU, but it is up to the British parliament to determine how we leave and not the British prime minister!
Boris Johnson’s cunning plan to deliver Brexit by dissolving the parliament
Failing to secure the consent of British Parliament, Boris Johnson had a cunning plan by having an early general election, and create a situation whereby due to the lack of MPs to endorse his Brexit, he could legally take the UK out of the EU on his own!
Claiming that the bill, which forces him to ask for an extension to the Brexit deadline if no deal had been agreed left him unable to negotiate a deal with the EU, Boris Johnson wanted the British MPs to agree to an early general election on 15 October, saying:
“In my view and the view of this govermment there must now be an election on Tuesday October 15 and I invite [Jeremy Corbyn] to respond to decide which of us goes as prime minister to that crucial council on Thursday October 17.”
The prime minister justified his decision for an early general election on 15 October, because according to him it is “completely impossible for the government to function if the House of Commons refuses to pass anything the government proposes”.
“In my view and the view of this government there must now be an election on Tuesday October 15 and I invite [Jeremy Corbyn] to respond to decide which of us goes as prime minister to that crucial council on Thursday October 17.”
Boris Johnson’s plan failed because the opposition realised that without a British Parliament, Boris Johnson would take the UK out of the EU on 31 October without having to secure the mandatory consent from the dissolved British Parliament.
Jeremy Corbyn exposes Boris Johnson’s conniving plan
Mr Johnson’s conniving plan was exposed by Jeremy Corbyn who claimed that:
“The offer of an election today is a bit like the offer of an apple to Snow White by the wicked queen. What he’s offering is not an apple of even an election but the poison of a no-deal. So Mr Speaker I repeat what I said last night. Let this bill pass and gain royal assent. Then we will back an election so we do not crash out with a no-deal exit from the EU.”
Boris Johnson decided to have an early general election, because he had a cunning plan – to deliver Brexit by dissolving the British parliament, and without elected MPs, the prime minister free to take the UK out of the EU, with or without a deal!
To achieve his cunning Brexit plan, Boris Johnson needed two-thirds of all MPs to vote in favour of his motion.
However, 298 MPs voted for the motion and 56 against, which was 136 short of the number needed to dissolve the British Parliament!
Therefore, Boris Johnson’s cunning plan to deliver a no-deal Brexit by dissolving the British parliament has failed!
Watch James O’Brien explain why the British newspapers owned by wealthy tax-dodgers are so desperate to leave the EU
Ever since he announced his U-turn on the EU referendum in 2013, David Cameron spent his time exclusively in the company of executive officials of the British pro-Brexit press, which according to James O’Brien, are owned by wealthy tax-avoiding billionaires who felt threatened by the new EU Directive intended to bring an end to their tax-avoiding practices.
According to Press Gazette throughout 2013, 2014 and 2015, Mr Cameron and George Osborne intensified their discussions with the pro-Brexit press.
“Of the 23 meetings between October 2014 and September 2015, eight were with News Corporation executives, five with the BBC or BBC Trust and four with Telegraph Media Group.”
As someone who campaigned to remain in the EU, one might have expected that Mr Cameron would coordinate his campaign and meet with the pro-EU press, such as the Independent, Guardian, Financial Times, etc.
Instead, Mr Cameron spent most of his time in the company of the executive officials of the pro-Brexit press, as follows:
News Coorp., which controls The Times, The Sunday Times and The Sun
February 2015, Mr Cameron met with Robert Thomson, News Corporation chief executive, general discussion
July 2015 – Mr Cameron met with Robert Thomson, general discussion
Telegraph Media Group, which controls The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph
February 2013 – Mr Cameron met with Murdoch MacLennan, Guy Black (with John Witherow and Lionel Barber), to discuss Leveson Report
April 2013 – Mr Cameron met with Aidan Barclay, general discussion
September 2013 – Mr Cameron met with Murdoch MacLennan (with Tony Gallagher and Ian MacGregor), general discussion
November 2013 – Mr Cameron met with Sir David Barclay, Telegraph owner, dinner
May 2014 – Mr Cameron met with Aidan Barclay, general discussion
October 2014 – Mr Cameron met with Aidan Barclay (with Fizzy Barclay), dinner
January 2015 – Mr Cameron met with Aidan Barclay, general discussion
Express newspapers, which controls the Daily Star and Daily Express
October 2013 – Mr Cameron met with Richard Desmond, general discussion
January 2015 – Mr Cameron met with Richard Desmond, general discussion
October 2014 – Mr Cameron met with Lord Rothermere (with Paul Dacre), chairman and owner of Daily Mail and General Trust, dinner
The tax avoidance scam behind Brexit is also emphasized by James O’Brian:
“Then we come back to Britain where he have voted to undertake Brexit in large part at the behest of non-domiciled billionaires like Lord Ashcroft and the two brothers who own the Telegraph, who have their own Channel Island. They also own the Ritz.”
David Cameron is a classic Jekyll & Hyde example, publicly campaigning to remain in the EU and secretly spending most of his time with people who campaigned to leave the EU.
On March 25th of 2015, Members of European Parliament representing Mr Cameron’s party, UKIP and DUP voted against EU’s plans to crack down on corporate tax-dodging, by making companies report where they make their profits and pay taxes.
“From Britain, Conservative, UKIP, and DUP MEPs voted against the report, though many did not show up or not vote.”
Even Mr Farage’s UKIP, the party who rambled on as being the only UK party to speak out for Britain’s little people, in the European Parliament, instead of the people they pledged to represent, they voted to protect the vested interests of the wealthy elite, who refuse to pay their tax contributions.
Apparently, Mr Farage also tried to avoid paying his taxes through an offshore trust fund.
“The 49-year-old paid a tax adviser to create the Farage Family Educational Trust 1654 in the tax haven – which he intended to channel funds through.”
Reflecting on Supreme Court’s decision that the British Parliament must decide whether or not to trigger Article 50, Mr Farage revealed the crucial aspect of his Brexit campaign, stating:
“Well, we would be half-Brexiting is my guess – is that legally we may get out of some aspects of EU membership, but if we stay in the single market, we finish up with all our businesses being regulated somewhere else and indeed a court in Luxembourg that can overrule our own Supreme Court and if that happens it will a supreme act of betrayal.”
The European Court of Justice in Luxembourg is responsible for ensuring that EU directives are interpreted and applied in the same way in every member state, including EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive.

Tax-dodgers are greedy crooks who will eventually receive long imprisonment for robbing their nation, but only in the UK, most of them are rewarded with noble titles, Lord, Dame, Sir, etc.

Will Boris Johnson deliver Brexit on 31 October to avoid the transposition of the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into British law?
Boris Johnson is keen to break the British law and deliver Brexit on 31 October, because if the UK doesn’t leave the EU before December, then the British government has to adopt new regulating laws to complete the full transposition of the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive!
Why is Boris rushing the UK out of the EU on 31 October?
Boris Johnson claimed that he would rather ‘die in a ditch’ than request an article 50 extension before 31 October!
Die in a ditch without delivering Brexit on 31 October; or
Die in prison for delivering Brexit on 31 October,
Johnson hoped to have an early general election, but after a majority of MPs declined to support his motion, a No. 10 spokesman attacked Jeremy Corbyn, saying:
“Jeremy Corbyn has voted to wreck the negotiations, to delay Brexit until 2020 at least, to hand over billions if Brussels demands it, and to stop the public having a vote until after Brexit is delayed again. Corbyn does not trust the people. He wants to cancel the referendum result and stop the people having a say. The Prime Minister trusts the people and thinks they should decide who goes to Brussels on 17 October to negotiate – and he will get us out on 31 October with or without a deal.”
Whilst the No. 10 spokesman raises the issue of handing “over billions if Brussels demands it”, he failed to mention the tiny detail that if the UK doesn’t leave before the 1 January 2020, then the British government has to transpose the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into the British law, thus enabling the British government to generate an additional £20 billions a year from tax-dodgers!
If Brexit isn’t delivered before 2020, then the UK has to transpose the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive into British law!
On 29 May 2017, the European Council adopted the amended anti-tax avoidance directive, the amended anti-tax avoidance directive, introducing the rules to tackle hybrid mismatches with the tax systems of countries outside the EU, which obliges its member states to implement the directive into their national law by 1 January 2020.
Therefore, unless Boris Johnson manages to deliver Brexit well before 01 January 2020, the Brexiteers’ tax avoidance con will be dead, because once the EU measures are enacted, it takes a courageous politician to propose or vote in favour of their removal!
The EU is already aware of the British drive to protect the tax-dodging practices from the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive!
German Greens MEP Sven Giegold said:
“Brexit must become an exit from British tax dumping. The rejection of the Brexit agreement by the British House of Commons has made the modalities of the Brexit even more incalculable. However, it is clear that any future agreement between Britain and the EU must put an end to tax havens in the UK’s overseas territories. The practice of zero tax on company profits in essentially all British overseas territories must no longer be exploited for international tax dodging.”
Dutch deputy prime minister, Lodewijk Asscher who happens to be Dutch Labour (PvdA) party leader, also issued a stark warning to the British government:
“If you and I pay taxes, so should the large enterprises. Let’s fight the race to the bottom for profits taxation together which threatens to come into existence if it is up to the Conservative UK government. This will affect all Europeans, as it deteriorates our support for our social security system and leaves ordinary people to bear the costs. This is why I propose to come to a new trade agreement with Great Britain, but only if we can agree firmly upon tackling tax avoidance and stopping the fiscal race to the bottom.”
