Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I have no difficulty imagine a party political broadcast in say December:
Aerial shot: Lorry queues at Dover
Cut to Raab: I did not appreciate the importance of Dover
Cut to: reports of medical shortages
Cut to Boris - it's just a bump in the road.
Cut to: Depleted shelves in a supermarket
Cut to: Gove - its just a bump in the road
Cut to: Report of Some Major Factory shutting
Cut to: Boris - a bump in the road.
Not all of those scenes may happen, but I feel confident an equivalent can be found. If I were Labour and only concerned with maximising my electoral chances, I would not push for a vote of no confidence until late November or December. Keep all the focus on legislative means to prevent no deal at this stage.
