Boris Johnson will not be deterred by Supreme Court and will take UK out of EU on October 31

Yesterday was without doubt one of the most significant in British constitutional history with 11 Supreme Court Judges concluding that the prime minister had acted illegally in his prorogation of parliament, which by implication also indicates that Boris Johnson lied to Her Majesty the Queen.

Of course in normal circumstances, this would be more than enough to enact a vote of no confidence in The House of Commons, and without  a majority, the government would at best lose its leader and at worst the country would be facing a general election.

However these are definitely not normal circumstances and because the opposition parties are desperate to ensure that the country does not crash out of the EU without a deal, they will allow Johnson to limp along until an extension has been granted by the EU beyond the October 31 deadline.

Yesterday, the PM was rubbing shoulders with Donald Trump, his counterpart in the States at a meeting of the UN and they had more than their mops of blonde-hair in common.

The US President faces impeachment proceedings by Congress and Boris will return to parliament with his tail between his legs and a very uncertain future.

However, amidst the inevitable calls for his resignation it seems Johnson is undeterred in his mission to leave the EU on Halloween “do or die’, however just how he anticipates to accomplish this is anyone’s guess.

As MPs return to Westminster today, an empty order sheet will be in front of them. However, be in no doubt that the next 36 days are set to be some of the most tumultuous in UK parliamentary history.

The Brexit beast has yet to be tamed and it is unclear who is going to be up to the job.
