Johnson seeks boost in support for Brexit | Camden-Narellan Advertiser

A cross-party group is seeking a way out of the Brexit "nightmare" by working together to find a deal that can secure a majority in Parliament, suggesting a Northern Ireland-only backstop may be one answer. That would make the province the only part of the U.K. to remain aligned to European Union rules, allowing the free flow of goods over the land border with the Irish Republic until alternative arrangements can be agreed. Nick Boles, an independent member of Parliament who quit the Tories this year and worked with Boris Johnson when he was Mayor of London, said the prime minister "doesn't care about anything other than power and glory for himself." He will seek to remain in office by any means, Boles said. Johnson appears to be boxed in to a corner, having said he would rather "die in a ditch" than delay Brexit. He failed to secure a general election and is confronted by a Parliament that doesn't support a no-deal split from the EU and passed a law requiring him to delay if he can't reach an agreement next month. While former Prime Minister Theresa May relied on the support of the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party's 10 MPs to give her a working majority, the agreement ensuring their support expired when the Parliament session ended early on Tuesday morning. Johnson, who will meet DUP leaders in London on Tuesday, no longer has a working majority after 21 Tory MPs were expelled over their support for the legislation blocking a no-deal Brexit. He'll have to rely on Labour votes to get a deal passed, even if he can convince the DUP to come back on board. "The Tory Party has been entirely in hock to the DUP ever since they lost their majority," Boles said at the launch of the group on Tuesday, referring to the disastrous 2017 general election. The party "is no longer dependent on the DUP for a majority because...
