Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Newsnight last night was interesting. While no one was quite counting chickens, the working assumption was that legislation would be passed today obliging the Government to bring back a deal or ask for another extension. Two Labour speakers said it would not support a "no-confidence" motion if Johnson brings one forward. I sincerely hope they are right. The panel of pundits all agreed that that would put the Government in an exceptionally difficult position and unless Cummings really is a genius and has some plan they couldn't see, the Government is snookered. It would actually have to do what it has been blustering away about and come up with a deal or go past 31 October.
It is looking like those famous clocks that Mr Johnson had ticking down to Brexit day may have been set wrongly.
