Commenting on the appointment of Boris Johnson as the next Leader of the Conservative Party, Ogmore MP Chris Elmore said:
“The wave of populism we’ve seen across much of the Western World in recent years which has threatened to raise its ugly head in the UK has now firmly arrived.
“Boris Johnson is completely unfit to be Prime Minister of our great country and I genuinely fear for what his appointment means for the future of our nation. Rather than “do or die”, the divisions we see across our country need to be healed. Sadly, I have no doubt that Boris Johnson is completely incapable of doing so.
“Sound bites and populist rhetoric will not solve the Brexit impasse we still find ourselves in. We now face the real prospect of a disastrous no deal exit from the European Union and it is the moral responsibility of each and every one of us to stop our country taking this misguided path.
“Now is the time to unite, expose Boris Johnson as the flip-flopping charlatan he is and give the people of the United Kingdom the final say on where our country goes next.”
