Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Which is in fact the point of this - at every turn so far, Johnson has been acting with the strategic intelligence of a toddler.

"I don't like Parliament, I'm going to teach it a lesson" - he gets thousands out on the streets and appalls many in his own party.

"I don't like rebels, I'm going to teach them a lesson" - he nukes his own majority.

"I don't like Bercow, I'm going to teach him a lesson" - Bercow guarantees the next Speaker won't be any more pliant.

He's a political imbecile. He doesn't even have Trump's ironclad pathological narcissism. When his brother resigned he was apparently very upset.

So his next gambit will probably be "I don't like the law, I'm going to teach it a lesson."

And we'll see how that works out for him.
