Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Which is why neither the LibDems nor the ragged remnants of Change UK - or whatever they're calling themselves this week - support a VONC followed by an election, and why today's plan is to use legislation to stop No Deal and then see where that leads.

My guess is that if Parliament tells Johnson to take No Deal off the table he'll just say 'No - make me."

And then we'll be back to No Deal and the threat of a VONC and an election, with a few more weeks wasted.

Which is why I have been saying only an electoral pact which will allow sitting MPs and leading anti-Tory candidates in 2017 election a free run against Boris/Farage in any new election will enable an anti-Boris majority to emerge in parliament.

But before that can happen, all other options have to be exhausted and truly desperate measures contemplated and eliminated. Finally they will also require the fig leaf of not having to install Jeremy in No.10 so that petty jealousies and personality conflicts can be satisfied.

We are dealing with a weak bunch of careerist annoyed that their entitlement to high office has been stymied. Nothing much can be expected of them until their personal fantasies are indulged and thwarted. Never has so much depended on so few idiots...
