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

From today's Guardian it appears that the Remain de facto alliance may well deny Boris any recess for a conservative congress and just make conservative MPs run back and forth between Manchester and Westminster during the process. Complain as they might, it will be a clown show. The Remain alliance could always make agreement to a recess for the Conservative Convention contingent on having either negotiated an exit plan that will pass Parliament or having delivered a request for an extension. They could always reply to criticism by saying that, had the time during the unlawful prorogation not been lost, this would not have been necessary.
