Nigel Farage has always been cautious about welcoming the moves taken by Boris Johnson. He has constantly expressed caveats and now he believes those fears have been confirmed:
My worst fears over the last week are now confirmed. https://t.co/xrGiNwTOGD

It was hard not to watch the resignation speech made by the now-former leader of the Scottish Tories, Ruth Davidson, and not be concerned as a Brexiteer. She clearly intimated that she strongly believes Boris Johnson will not push for a WTO Brexit but will in actual fact seek to push through a slightly tweaked Withdrawal Agreement in the new Parliamentary session which will be opened by the Queens Speech on October 14th.
Not only did she say she sincerely believes that Johnson is looking to make a deal, but she also implored MP’s to back a revised Withdrawal Agreement in order to avoid a WTO Brexit.
Brexiteers have been celebrating the suspension of Parliament believing it makes a WTO Brexit virtually inevitable but it appears that the Prime Minister may well have other ideas. It may well be that there will be a Meaningful Vote 4 and Britain may be bounced into a surrender Treaty which delivers Brexit In Name Only.
