What he probably means is something along the lines of: "I think I might have found a way of avoiding it without getting into trouble"

Boris has now said he will seek a Brexit extension if a deal is not reached by Oct 19
Has he said that directly? Or are you going on the basis of the assurances made to the Scottish courts by govt lawyers today? Not that it makes much difference. can't trust a word he says anyway

Meanwhile it turns out reducing debt wasn't that important to the Tory Party after all:

So austerity was just all about punishing the poor after all.

Load of bollocks, surely? The FTPA would've replaced any dissolution legislation.

Sadly the Lascelles Principles have nothing to do with the Newcastle centre half. This is being lapped up by the faithful and reported by then propagandists despite a 2 min google revealing that they:

a) don't exist any more as overruled by the FTPA;
b) wouldn't apply to this situation if they did exist; and
c) wouldn't help Johnson if they did apply.

Wonder what 'Classic Dom' tomorrow will bring?

In other news its being suggested that should Johnson go to an election with a manifesto promoting no deal its looking like 5 cabinet ministers (including your lad Buckland) and around 50 Tory MP's could resign.

In shocking news its been revealed that one does not require 34 days to prepare for a Queens Speech instead one can be prepared in 5 days, who would have thunk it!

But what is going to happen, Johnson doesn't hold anything like a majority so the chances of such a speech passing are quite slender, add to the fact that its basically going to be Brenda presenting a Conservative Party Political Broadcast for the forthcoming election.

Yes it's drivel, like all the other drivel coming out of "No 10 sources" (Cummings). But it's all helping to rile up the cannon fodder for further assaults on what used to pass for a UK constitution. One thing that has to come out of all this mess is getting rid of this ridiculous arcane "unwritten constitution" bollocks and replacing it with a proper legal constitution fit for a modern democracy. Not sure where that would leave the monarchy, mind. But Johnson and Co don't seem to care what kind of collateral damage their assault on the constitution causes.

BTW I didn't know that Dale Vince was heavily involved in the case in Scotland to ensure that Johnson actually adheres to the law of the Benn Act.

What about respecting the law which was passed by a majority in parliment. The bill became law as an Act on 26 June 2018. Section 1 states that the European Communities Act 1972 is repealed on exit day. It was law that we left the eussr in March of this year. Are some laws absolute and others ignored? Tereason May broke the law not leaving in March 2019 when's her court case.
