Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From my quote above: "A recent ComRes poll shows that in an election held after the UK has left with no deal, the Conservatives are likely win a majority in parliament with 36 per cent ahead of Labour 29 per cent, Liberals 15 per cent and the Brexit Party on 8 per cent. However, if the election happens after the UK has received an extension of article 50, Labour wins with 28 per cent followed by the Brexit Party on 23 per cent with the Tories and Liberals trailing on 22 per cent and 16 per cent. In other words, uniting the pro-no-deal Brexit minority by exiting before an election would benefit Johnson electorally."

In fact its the only way he can win and win a mandate for himself while reprising Winston's role as a war time PM and leader of "a government of national unity".
