So we have a remoaner Parliament which has purportedly bound Boris to go to the EU and beg for an extension to the 31 October leave date !
Boris says “he would rather be be dead in a ditch” than do that. He says he will not do it and therefore somebody else must. So he is offerring the opposition a General Election to let the proles decide whether to vote him in as Prime Minister or to let Corbyn go, “touch his forelock and genuflect” before the all powerful, unelected and shadowy Commissioners of the EU.
Corbyn is completely terrified that the Labour Party will be very weakened by an Election and is therefore REFUSING to agree to one !
Whoever heard EVER of a Party in Power offering an Election and those who seek Power REFUSING such an opportunity ?? The world is standing on it’s head !
There is some doubt as to whether Boris would actually obey such an instruction. ANd 21 of the conservatuve Party MPs have been ejected from the Party for disobeying the Whip on the vote which Boris said would be a “Vote of Confidence” issue. IF those 21 had voted against the motion - as they should have, the motion Would have been defeated. and Boris’s Plan would still be intact and the will of the People would be progressing in accordance with the results of the Referendum.
It seems fairly clear to me thatif the MPs refuse an Election, knowing full well that Boris will not comply, they will find it quite hard to argue at Law later that Boris was “out of order” in letting the time expire which would mean a Clean Break Brexit automatically came to fruition.
Here is a rather good summary of the situation, historically and also as it is at this critical time.
