Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suspect that, tactically, Labour will wait until October 19th. to allow Boris either come back with a deal (which will split the Conservative/Brexit party vote) or without a deal, which will force him to eat his words and ask for an extension - again, which will split the Brexit Party/Conservative vote.

Having been found to have acted unlawfully once, I doubt even Boris will try it a second time and NOT ask for an extension. Again, he should resign having said he would "rather die in a ditch", and that doing so would shred what remains of his credibility. If he resigns, the Queen would probably appoint Corbyn PM.

If he doesn't resign, Parliament has no choice but to vote no confidence and vote confidence in someone else, laying bare divisions within the opposition. Realistically Corbyn holds all the cards as to who that someone else will be.
