Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not entirely convinced.

The mistake was to do this too early. It gives the opposition time to get itself together politically, for legal challenges to be heard, for Bercow to get really really mad, and for popular opposition to organise mass protests.

And not incidentally, for the Queen to take action behind the scenes - if she chooses to.

The schedule for a VONC and pro-tem leader is now very tight, but it's still doable.

The obvious next step is to expect further outrageous attacks on democracy. Which will - of course - happen.

But so what? Johnson is vulnerable to attack from all possible directions now. Only one needs to succeed, and it's all over.
