Could the WA get through this time. Is reality finally starting to bite. Is Bojo a more humble now his wings are clipped.
ERG will still vote against it and so will labour and likely Lib Dem’s.
Can’t see how it passes
The threat of no deal isn't to get the EU on board, it's to get enough waiverers at home to sign up. I think they will go with NI only backstop subject NI only referendum. They will jettison the DUP if they can get support elsewhere.
By law BoJo needs to genuinely ask for an extension if he can't get a deal past parliament. Given his promises about leaving come what may on 31st October, I can't see why the opposition would give him the opportunity to get that victory.
I think forcing an extension purely to hurt Johnson would be a pyrrhic victory for Labour.
Why, do you think they would be slammed in the polls harder than they have been already?
I was thinking slightly more long term. It's all very well defeating Johnson but they need to be *for* something.
