Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Intense and zero-time-required transactions?

I wrote "a period of", therefore not zero-time. The period being the 14 days required by the fixed-term Parliament Act.

The minimum time for an election is 25 working days, ie 5 weeks. An election could be held before 31 October.

The EU has already signalled readiness to accept an extension for a major democratic event such as a referendum or general election. An extension could be very quickly granted.

Time is not the problem. The problem is that the opposition to no deal will not get their act together/ will not chip off enough Tories to beat the government.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
