Boris Johnson warns ‘Labour and Nats’ coalition will follow General Election

Boris Johnson has warned that a “Labour and the Nats” coalition would follow any General Election unless people voted for the Conservative party.

In a preview of the next General Election campaign – likely to be held in two years, in May 2024 – the Prime Minister said that the “terrible twins” of Labour and nationalists would jump into bed together in the event of a hung parliament.

In a speech at the Conservative party conference, he also ruled out a second independence referendum, saying that it was not the time for constitutional wrangling while Europe was embroiled in war.

“And be in no doubt that at any UK general election, it would be those terrible twins, Labour and the Nats, the Scottish nationalist party, each vying to be more left-wing, more high-taxing, more generally hectoring and bossy and nannying, that would try to form a coalition,” he said.

“And by the way, be in no doubt, that Labour would rather work with the nationalists to bring down this government than work with us to stop the SNP from breaking up Britain, that is the reality.”

Boris Johnson also praised Conservative party leader Douglas Ross – who had called for him to step down over the partygate scandal in January and February.

“Douglas Ross has been able to defy the sceptics, stop Nicola Sturgeon from getting an overall majority, as people said that she would,” the Prime Minister said.

“He is the only political leader in Scotland saying loud and clear what should be blindingly obvious to everyone, that this is not the moment to be having another referendum.

“This is not the time for yet more delectable disputations about the constitution when our European continent is being ravaged by the most vicious war since 1945 and when public services and the economy need to recover from the pandemic.

“And how incredible that Labour should be so spiritually cowed that they have become nothing but the lapdogs and the enablers of the SNP”

He also attacked the SNP’s policy on Trident nuclear weapons.

“How incredible that even now it should be the policy of the SNP, quite seriously, to respond to Putin’s sabre-rattling by getting rid of this country’s nuclear deterrent, along, by the way, with 11,000 jobs in Scotland,” he said.

Oh what a lovely war, Boris must be thinking to himself, as Lord Snooty Pencil neck declared ‘partygate’ as being being,’fluff’. There may be bigger fish to fry at the moment, but we will not forgive or forget that pond life are running our country. Although that is an insult to pond life and bottom feeders in general, to whom I will apologize.

I love the way he makes a potentially positive turn of events (an SNP/Labour coalition) sound like a “threat”. No mention of Wales, of course.

Especially when it’s the tory party that are being funded by dodgy Russian money and they’ve allowed London to become the laundromat for dirty money from around the globe, and johnson himself put the son of a KGB officer into the HoL. But its always “the others” you have to watch out for, I’m sure the inglish media will be pushing that point in the build up to any election.

Conservative clown Boris Johnson is regurgitating the same old same “coalition of chaos” Theresa May warned before being ousting by the English far-right ERG. he became PM, and Britain became a laughing stock of the world.

Fat boy getting his threats and promises confused. At least a Labour/SNP collaboration would be some kind of progress as long as it was a stepping stone.

He seem to be offering the public a choice, Labour and SNP or Boris and Putin, if Putin can survive his invasion of Ukraine. I wonder which the English voter will go for.

Not having a racist, lying, bigot who is so drunk he can barely form words. And feels so entitled to overlord over Cymru. Never vote Tory, vote humane.

Better that than the coalition of right-wing factions that is the Conservative and Unionist Party.

Parties working together in a coalition. That must be so frightening! Could anybody imagine that happening in other democracies? It must be terrifying! (I am, of course, being sarcastic!).

The budding ‘king of the world’ doesn’t ‘do’ coalitions

Reminds me of the “stability and strong government with me (David Cameron), or chaos with Ed Milliband” line.

Choice is either a new way of running this union or people increasingly despising what it’s becoming and wanting to leave. But it’s the voters in England who will decide and Boris knows this.

If the other parties have any hope of dislodging the Tories in Conservative obsessed England they have to work together. All of them. In saying that, mind you, if the Tories did stay in power, which is still a very likely scenario, Wales will become independent quicker.

Yes, but only if some of our Welsh Comrades stop voting for Tory Lapdogs. We do need a Tory-Free Wales.

I wonder who would vote Conservative ?

Yes, the same people who were mis-lead into attending Putin’s rally in Moscow (March 2022).

Those that are denied the real facts to what is really happening.

See Tories, See Putin. TORIES = PUTIN.

What is the current war (March 2022) in Europe about ? A large country (Russian empire) trying to capture and assimilate a small country (Ukraine) into a Greater Russia. Which is exactly what the UK regime (former British empire) is trying to do with a smaller country (Wales) into a Greater England. Can you see the similarity ? A lot is said about the how Russia runs its elections. They rig the system in favour of the ruling party against the opposition. How ? By use of FPTP (First past the post) and constituency boundaries – The same system as… Read more »
