I can't see how the current 'No comment' from number 10 can last, given the apparent conflict between what Johnson told the party - and the public - and what he is promising the courts. Steve Baker's comments notwithstanding, the PM is not simply saying he will obey the law by seeking an extension, since the law requires him to ask and accept it in some cases, and in others to bring the length of extension back to the House. The PM might be hoping the EU suggests a different period which would allow him to get it back to the House where he has at least a chance of getting it rejected.
