Hmm. I think the two are very different. Froggage actually wants a chaotic no-deal and WTO terms as an end state. He wants us to leave the EU, go onto WTO terms, have the chaos including a food and medicine shortage and then rely on his great hero mate Donald Trump to come and save the day.
In the run up to the 2016 referendum his message was all about the 500 million foreign EU migrants who could just walk into the UK under the EU freedom of movement rules. (total lie but still not properly exposed). Now it seems he doesn't even want a border between UK and EU in Ireland. His policy is just pure populism but his aims are far more sinister that Boris the clown.
Of course he would be happy as PM but he knows he cannot with stand the scrutiny this would entail. Downing street is correct that he should not be let anywhere near to power and its unusual for me to agree with any Tories let alone this super right wing lot.
