However any delay – even if it leads to a no deal Brexit immediately after an election, or Brexit being cancelled altogether, will leave a hung Parliament.

This makes it clear that the Government is working within the legal stipulations set by Dominic Grieve’s political chicanery, and is responding in kind.

Great strategists are unpredictable strategists. So it has been exhilarating to watch Boris Johnson hurl the lightning bolts of shock-and-awe regime change through Britain’s May-grey political skies with such unexpected ruthlessness.

Backing A Second Referendum Could Finish Labour At The Ballot Box

On the biggest issue in British politics, Labour promised one thing before the election and then did the complete opposite afterwards. The last party that performed such an outrageous U-turn was the Liberal Democrats over tuition fees, and they were rightly destroyed in the following election.

Labour is now possibly facing that same oblivion.

As of this morning, just under five million Labour Leave voters are homeless. I’m sure The Brexit Party will be delighted.

10.07.2019 - 20:55 [ Spectator ]

Why the Labour party deserves to be destroyed

Already Labour are below 20 per cent in some general election polls and it is hard to see how they will survive a four-way squeeze in any snap election.

The only thing that might avoid this doomsday scenario is if the Tories manage to take the UK out of the EU by 31st October. Given that the dreadful withdrawal agreement is now dead in the water, that means, somewhat ironically, only a ‘no deal’ Brexit can save Labour.

Theresa May’s Brexit strategy has humiliated Britain

The government has lost the ability to run the country. It is no longer in charge of its own destiny, let alone that of the nation. What makes this so humiliating is that power has been ceded not to parliament, but to the European Union. The immediate future of our country will be decided in Brussels and the capitals of the EU, not in Westminster.

Speaker Bercow – voice of the ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ party

The ludicrous Bercow claimed yesterday that ‘Part of the role of speaker is to speak truth to power – and no matter what, I always will’. In reality, Mr Speaker speaks for the powerful Remainer establishment.

As I have argued before on spiked, Bercow’s backdoor attempt to thwart the popular Brexit revolt is the exact opposite of the heroic role played by the speaker in the English revolution of the 17th century. In 1642 speaker Lenthall defied Charles I when the king entered the Commons with armed soldiers in a failed bid to arrest rebel MPs. By contrast, Bercow has parked his tanks on the people’s political lawn.
