Where he belongs: Any of his constituents breaking the law may expect to end up behind bars. Boris Johnson has announced that he intends to do so. What will happen to him?

What a disgrace.

The law is clear. If Parliament has not approved Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal today, then he must contact the European Council immediately to seek to delay the date of Brexit.

Parliament has not approved the deal. It has not supported a Withdrawal Bill.

But Mr Johnson, in an act of bare-faced cheek, has said he will not comply with the law.

He reckons he’ll bring the necessary legislation during the week and is acting as though it will be passed – indeed, Leader of the House Jacob Rees-Mogg has just announced a debate on Monday. This is discourteous to the Queen, as Parliament was due to debate her speech.

The new debate will be on s.13(b) of the Withdrawal Act 2018 (the Benn Act), which states: “The withdrawal agreement may be ratified only if… the negotiated withdrawal agreement and the framework for the future relationship have been approved by a resolution of the House of Commons on a motion moved by a Minister of the Crown.”

So it seems the intention is to re-run today’s (October 19) vote in what seems a Groundhog Day-esque return to the activities of Theresa May’s government.

As I write this, Labour’s Vernon Coaker has said anyone not complying with the law must face the consequences.

Speaker John Bercow said, “We must await the development of events.”

It seems BoJob’s strategy is to bog Parliament down with nonsense and get his “no deal” Brexit in the confusion.
