We will hear today whether Bercow will allow a debate to proceed, though most predictions are that he will not.
The 'master strategist' (cough!) Cummings, just like all the rest of us, will have been aware that putting essentially the same motion back to Parliament is against the rules. So when Johnson pulled the vote at the weekend they would both have been aware that there was a very real chance it could not be brought back.
So any anger if Bercow does prohibit the motion will either be confected - it was part of their plan - or demonstrate what we all suspect that there is no plan at all. A goal, yes. A strategy - blame everyone else for everything - yes. A plan - no.
