The thing is as Mrs May proved, nobody wants the current deal or to crash
out. That was established when she was in charge. How could Boris not have
realised his. So here we are back round to the start of Groundhog day again.
I fully realise that he was hoping that by taking it to the wire Brussels
would give in, but really, they are all now so bemused by us, I suspect they
could not give a monkeys.
What is going to happen now if we elect yet another hung parliament with
Lib dems holding the balance of power?
The date has to be a few days away. Will Brussels say, you cannot be allowed
to crash out while you have no credible government. Do they cancel Article
50, say sod it and move it till February, or just chuck us out anyway with
I personally don't think whoever you had in No 10 faced with this mess it
would make any difference.

I was watching the Commons this afternoon and was genuinely surprised to
see just how badly Boris was performing; shifty, evasive, bumbling,
stumbling, totally lost more often than not. About on a par with Theresa
May on her bad days. What's more, he looked terrified at points, like he's
just realising for the first time that he's not actually remotely competent
for the job. LOL!
So, the forthcoming General Election campaign is going to be quite the
spectacle as we see the real Boris Johnson exposed and crushed. It's going
to be great!
"Do you want to be on TV ? Do you think you deserve it ? Do you think
you will be "good" on camera ? Answer "No" to these questions and you
might as well get out of politics". David Thomson "Television" p.269
The HoC is about the only place where Boris can't control the situation.
Which is one of the reasons why he's suspended it.
Outside the HoC Boris loves the TV camera and the TV watching public
(including the Tory members who voted him in ) love watching Boris.
Same as they loved watching "Trump" in "The Apprentice". They're
larger than life characters, who naturally appeal to the hard of thinking.
Corbyn on the other hand is boring and would tick the "No Publicity" Box
if there was one.
Kate Hoey, Frank Field. They and a few others are still out there, you know.
