Nick Ferrari: ‘No-deal Brexit may lead to Labour in power and prospect chills my blood'

Some time next month, Marxist Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell steps into the autumn sunshine in Westminster and hails a cab.

Having loaded his long-time pal and confessed anti-Monarchist Jeremy Corbyn into the back, they head to Buckingham Palace.

Once there, Mr Corbyn seeks an audience with the Queen and informs her that as Boris Johnson has lost a vote of no confidence in the House of Commons, he will be forming a government, albeit with this nightmarish scenario only being made possible thanks to the support of the Scottish National Party.

To get to this point, according to Comrade McDonnell, Labour could have agreed to referendums in both Scotland and Northern Ireland.

They would also have had to promise the Lib Dems a second referendum on leaving the EU. So there you have it – a mismatched marriage of convenience to let 

Labour finally grab the reins of power, with the cost being the possible break-up of the UK as well as another vote on Brexit.

As the clock ticks down to October 31, the date by which Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed Britain will have left the EU, the possibility of a confidence motion being tabled against the Government increases.

Should Mr Johnson and his team fail to get a new deal or even a meaningful tweak or two to the current one, the likelihood he will lose increases.

This plunges the country into unknown territory.

If Mr Johnson loses a confidence vote, then under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act there is a 14-day spell during which MPs can run through as many fanciful ideas as they wish as they strive to form a government.

And that’s when Labour will be ready to promise almost anything, it would appear. To get the SNP on board, the party would reverse its long-standing policy against another Scottish Referendum.

Having promised everything to all and sundry, Labour would crawl into power despite polls showing just 18% support for them – their hard-left, high-tax, enterprise-curtailing prospectus untested at a General Election.

If the Scots help to deliver this, they need not worry about another independence referendum. The rest of the country will turn their backs on them.
