Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Where Boris hit a wall is that he lost his majority. It is this fact that has changed the entire situation. He has been defeated on every motion he has presented, while the de facto majority have passed all theirs.

Bercow has timed his resignation so that it is the current Parliament, the one in which Boris can't manage to pull together a majority, that will vote for the new Speaker. Boris will be most unlikely to get himself a biddable Speaker.

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