Three key promises made by Boris Johnson have been broken.


Three key promises made by Boris Johnson have been broken.

On a platform of ‘Get Brexit Done,’ BORIS JOHNSON won the 2019 general election.

Is the Prime Minister, on the other hand, delivering the Brexit he promised?

Boris Johnson won a landslide of 80 seats in the House of Commons in 2019, as Britain was on the verge of exiting the EU.

Many have been enthralled by his promise to ‘unleash Britain’s potential,’ but others have questioned whether the UK, and the Prime Minister, have truly delivered the Brexit that millions of people voted for.

Prior to the 2016 referendum, Mr Johnson boasted, “once we have settled our accounts, we will take back control of roughly £350 million per week.”

“As many of us have pointed out, it would be great if a large portion of that money went to the NHS.”

Throughout the Brexit campaign, it was frequently claimed that the UK “sends” £350 million per week to Brussels, but this has since been debunked.

The UK Statistics Authority said in 2016 that it was “disappointed to note that there are still suggestions that the UK contributes £350 million to the EU each week, and that this entire amount could be spent elsewhere,” and that his comments were “misleading.”

His claims enraged some British citizens to the point where a crowdfunded private prosecution was launched against him.

Changes in VAT

Energy prices are quickly becoming unaffordable for millions of households as the cost of living in the UK spirals out of control.

As a result of the ongoing global supply change shortages, 15 million households are paying more than 10% more for their energy bills this winter.

As the energy price cap is raised in April 2022, it is estimated that families will lose £1,200 per year.

The Prime Minister rejected Labour’s proposal to reduce VAT on bills to ease the burden on taxpayers.

“As long as we are in the EU, we are not allowed to cut this tax,” Mr Johnson said before the 2016 EU referendum.

“If we vote Leave, we’ll be able to get rid of this inequitable and harmful tax.”

“The argument is that it’s a blunt instrument, and the difficulty is that you end up cutting bills for a lot of people who perhaps don’t need the support in,” he said during a televised press conference at Downing Street.
