Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

According to convention, a lame-duck Prime Minister can't make bone-shaking changes (purdah rules). So if the Commons defeats BoJo in the right way...

...He will be obliged to throw convention out the window...
... But it's like wrestling with a pig. You get dirty, and the pig likes it.
