Re: General Election Is On

The silver lining is the end of Nigel Farage’s political career. I wouldn't be too sure about that. He doesn't like Johnson's deal, and if (as is being suggested) Johnson now goes for the softest of brexits, (once thy get into trade talks), then Farage and the ERG will no doubt start making waves.
