Brexit LIVE: Still not done! Boris faces 'real threat' in 2022 – 'serious error' backfires


Boris Johnson faces a “real threat” to his tenure and could make a “serious error” if he doesn’t capitalise on the UK’s exit from the EU in 2022. 

Writing for the Bruges Group, Barry Legg said: “Well, we are still waiting to get Brexit done.”

He added: “A more serious error of political judgment is likely to be a failure to influence the political and economic decisions of his Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak.

“The size of the state has returned to the level presided over by the socialist Clement Attlee some 70 years ago.

“The financing of the Government’s vast fiscal deficit by the Bank of England over the last two years must now come to an abrupt end.

“The retail price index is already up 7.1% year on year.

“Even if that financing ends early in 2022 inflation will tick up much further than that, especially as higher energy costs bite and the consumer faces higher taxes levied by a Conservative administration.

“That is the real threat for Boris Johnson in 2022 and we may learn more about a lady called Liz.”
