Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm going to bet the UK Supreme Court finds the prorogation legal.  The Scots are correct: it is a slimy political maneuver and So What?  That doesn't make it illegal.

As Oui says, the bigger issue is that he misled the Queen. Again, probably not illegal, but what if One comes out and says One doesn't appreciate being misled?

No doubt Boris will claim she may have misunderstood...
(subtext - she's 93 after all)

I don't think the bedrock of Conservative party will appreciate the Queen being abused in this way.

Indeed, what if One decided to abdicate in consequence?

Any other PM would have resigned in disgrace, but this PM knows no boundaries. Quite like Trump, in that regard.

I think you overestimate the median degree of the sanity in the Tory Party.

The bedrock of the Conservative Party is also 93, or thereabouts, and certainly no less confused.

Polls suggest they're perfectly happy with any law-breaking as long as they get their mythical Brexit.

The Tory Party membership, perhaps, but they're still going to have to pick up at least 30% of the vote on top of whatever the Brexit Party can garner, and insulting the Queen is not the way to go if that is your objective...
