Well, the UK has sunk to a new low. All we need now is to see whether Johnson’s early termination of parliamentary democracy next month will be followed up by a few Brownshirt torchlit marches through the streets of London. His supporters will no doubt struggle with the word ‘prorogue’ but they will themselves definitely be pro-rogue. In the circumstances, we shall see whether there are sufficient Tories left who still believe in constitutional government and would be willing to vote for a no-confidence motion. Surely this has to be what Corbyn calls for next, since Johnson appears to have made the ‘legislative route’ to stopping no-deal an impossibility. Now there can be no excuses left for wishy-washy opponents of Corbyn, from whatever source to dither any longer. It’s one minute to midnight. Without a successful no-confidence motion in her handbag I doubt the Queen would have sufficient reason to block Johnson’s demagoguery.
