Boris Lowers the Boom

Boris Johnson is going to get the Queen to suspend Parliament to force the opposition to either push for a no-confidence vote or drop their attempts to block his Brexit strategy.  With the suspension ending just two weeks before the October 31st deadline this will limit what the Remainers have time to cook up to block a hard Brexit.

It’s a gutsy move.  If a general election is called chances are the Brexit Party will win a huge victory and probably will assure a hard Brexit happens but it would also sink Johnson’s own Tories.  I think he’s betting that the cowardly Remainers will prefer to hold onto their seats rather than get their way on Brexit.
