Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
From the Guardian live blog:

"Some MPs have expressed concern that once Parliament has been dissolved, the Prime Minister could postpone the election date until after the end of the Brexit extension period, at which point the UK would leave the EU with nothing MPs could do to prevent it."

I note that the LibDems don't seem as keen on a snap election as I'd said earlier on. The obstinate possibility of no-deal, combined with the utter untrustworthiness of Johnson, is a powerful and sobering mix. His attempt to bully MPs into consenting to an election is utterly pointless. We need a general election, not a brexit election. We won't get that until brexit is resolved one way or the other.
