Like I said, boris may be many things, but he loves his country. He will never have it suffer the consequences of a no deal brexit.
I know why countries like yours are desperate to keep the UK in the EU.
For the last 40 years you have seen the UK as your protector from Germany. As well as that, most (if not all) of your 26 countries have experienced German occupation and then liberation by the UK in both of the world wars. As long as the UK is there, you're safe...
The UK leaving the EU scares you to death.
Your countries signed up to the EU because you knew that being economically subversive to Germany nowhere near as bad as being physical subversive, but as along as the good old UK was there, this would never happen... the UK who has defended and liberated you from Germany twice, and as an EU member just a stones throw away, will always come to your rescue.
But we are leaving your block on October 31st !
Germany already controls the Eurozone. It is the Deutsch Mark in another name, rolled out to those countries stupid enough to buy into it. The only way these countries can control their economies now is through austerity - look how Germany has them well and truly by the bollocks... step out of line, you will be punished from Germany by austerity measures. They can't devalue their currency any more - they have no centralised treasury. Only borrowing from their German masters can help them at interest rates dictated by them.
And then along comes the EU Army... this one is a real wolf in sheep clothing. You think you are all going to join together and defend yourselves as a block... hilarious. What the EU Army means is that Germany are giving the 26 a military amnesty, where you willl lay down your armed forces so Germany can take over your military, your air force, your navy, weapons, tanks, planes etc and control you and the rest of the member states with them. Why should Germany pay for its own military when it can just take yours and the other member states ? It's no coincidence that your new Dear Leader is a German ex defence minister, appointment by ex communist Merkel and will control your country first from Brussels and then from Berlin.
It's no wonder the EU is going to leave NATO at some point. It just gets in the way.
