Boris Johnson has frequently complained that Remainer MPs opposing him has made his job of agreeing a Brexit deal more difficult. During an interview with iloveviral, polling guru and political scientist Sir John Curtice explained that the Benn Act was the most detrimental way that Remainers had disrupted Brexit. He added that opposition parties’ inability to agree on what the best course of action would be to undermine Mr Johnson could halt their impact on Brexit.
When asked what the worse thing Remainers had done regarding Brexit Sir John said: “They passed the anti-no deal legislation.
“That is the thing above all that Remainers have made Boris Johnson’s life difficult on.
“Also with the case that led to the Supreme Court judgement which is the kind of thing that didn’t do him any good.
“It was long obvious during the summer that both sides were minded to play the constitutional rules as hard as they could.

“This was in order to try and see that they could get their path through.
“So those who were supportive of Boris Johnson said look we are perfectly clear, we can get this through it cannot be stopped because it is too late for the House of Commons to stop us.
“Those on the other side saying no, we know how to stop you.
“Although it is clear that the government did have weapons, like proroguing Parliament and holding a Queen’s speech was one of them.
“For example should they try and stop 31st of October being the default date in law.
“Should they be trying to come up with more legislation to tie the Prime Minister’s hand more tightly over a no-deal Brexit.
“The ultimate question is can they cohere because they have to cohere.
“That coalition that stretches all the way from Caroline Lucas on the Greens to those Tory MPs who were thrown out of the party.
“That coalition has to stay together and they may not be able to do anything more to make the Prime Minster’s life more difficult.”
