Donald, Jean-Claude, Michel and Guy frequently call my encrypted hotline to chew the fat.

The applications of Ursula (von der Leyen) and Charles (Michel) are pending subject to being vetted by my team

It is relevant. If his constituency voted to leave the EU three years ago then he has done the right thing. Choosing to do it because his brother is now PM and he (Jo) makes a public announcement defending his family etc. makes it even better that he should go.

Didn't she go a few years ago? Another MP who is trying to thwart Brexit.

This is one of the questions used to test peoples knowledge of the political process a few weeks ago. It doesn't matter what your constituency believes an MP is voted to use their own judgement. It's at the core of British Democracy and not just my point of view.

Of course Orpington is now free for Boris to take as his own in any GE as Uxbridge is not a safe seat if you suspect Jo is still doing Boris a favour.

"This means that, while the views of constituents are frequently considered, the actions of MPs are governed by their determination of the best interests of their constituency, their party and the country as a whole."

Boris in Dublin insisting he wants a real deal and saying no deal is a failing of statecraft.

Is he changing his tune or just making it up as he goes ?

"Nigel Farage, the Brexit party leader, claims that Boris Johnson has changed tack and that he is now going ďall outĒ for Theresa Mayís Brexit deal."

Theresa May must be laughing herself silly.

Boris needs to be very very careful. These trumpesque throwaway comments at press conferences have consequences. He canít have his cake and eat it. Just when you think heís nailed his colours to the mast, he changes his tune again.

Cummings detests Farage, his strategy of 'do or die' Brexit by the 31st Oct was also to neuter Farage and the Brexit Party once and for all, make him totally irrelevant politically. That's now failed with the extension Bill, so they have to change tack somehow and get a deal before the 31st in order to nullify Farage. A majority of Tory members when polled over the summer were happy to see the break up of the Union if it meant Brexit, so a Northern Ireland only backstop wouldn't upset them, just the DUP, who at the moment are useless to Johnson as their votes make no difference anymore. So, why not throw the DUP under the Brexit bus while parliament is shut down for 5 weeks and then vote on May's deal with a NI only backstop when they get back on 14th Oct?
Numbers would be tight with some ERG voting with DUP against it, but some Labour also likely to vote for it...

Apparently Boris will refuse to appoint a new European commissioner if forced to extend our membership after 31st October.this would mean the ec is not legally constituted because it must have. 28 commissioners.one from each member state if the EU tries to reduced the number.Boris will have the power of veto to block it.EU activity will be frozen.meaning . a no deal brexit would happen by 31 st October.by default .which could mean he doesn't have to abide by today's ruling. Slag me off if I'm wrong.

Private polling of constituencies not showing good for tories (this is constituency by constituency and seems to point to maybe the tories are piling up votes in already safe constituencies).

Boris Johnson rules out election pact with Brexit Party. Senior Tory source: ''Neither Nigel Farage nor Arron Banks are fit and proper persons and they should never be allowed anywhere near government''

That's quite the statement coming from the driver of the Brexit clown car...
