Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Now just prevent an election before an extension is requested and granted.

If Boris tables a motion under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act, he will only get the required 2/3 majority for it if there is certainty of an extension being requested.

Last wizard wheeze, he might claim he has lost the confidence of the HOC and start running the 14-day clock. It looks as if enough determination has been shown for a caretaker government to be formed in that case.

Boris took a beating yesterday.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
