Bow Group Chairman Ben Harris-Quinney has said that the issue with Boris Johnson’s premiership is not what he hasn’t been able to accomplish due to the pandemic, but what he has managed to do like introducing his costly Net Zero green agenda, and other “crazy, anti-conservative, and very unpopular” policies.
Asked on GB News whether he thought Prime Minister Boris Johnson was able to deliver policy that will keep to Red Wall voters loyal to the Conservative Party, Ben Harris-Quinney said: “Sadly, I don’t think he is, because you need a true believer. If you look at Boris Johnson’s track record when he was mayor of London, he believes in open-borders migration, he’s a liberal, and up until fairly recently he seemed to believe in the European Union.”
The Bow Group chairman continued: “What’s happened with the Conservative Party over the last decade is that we’ve had these leaders come through like David Cameron, promising to be the saviour of conservatism, then essentially being exposed as another Blairite. It was essentially the same with Theresa May, and I think the same with Boris again. The difference with Boris, is that he has the charisma and the character to win people over. But that can only go so far.
“He’s been prime minister for some time, now, and the issue isn’t what he hasn’t done because of the pandemic, etc, but what he has done, like Net Zero. So you can make excuses about the pandemic meaning we couldn’t get on with a lot of the things we wanted to do, but it doesn’t excuse the crazy, anti-conservative, and frankly very unpopular stuff they have been doing.”
“Migration levels go up year on year, despite the big banner announcements like the Rwanda policy. They continue to print a huge amount of money, raise taxes, increase government spending, and do all of these things that are fundamentally unconservative,” Mr Harris-Quinney added.
