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

A. Use his magic wand and get a deal with the EU-27 in Brussels within a fortnight;

B. Ask for an extension and resign which will enable a general election in early November ... a people's vote

Stubborn Boris has not done the Tory Brexiteers a favor ... the strategy of the two Dominics has been a grand failure ... clean sweep Boris has given Labour a second wind ... no credit to Corbyn and Watson and their cut-throat rivalry.

If there is to be any election in what remains of 2019 it would, IMO, likely be a second referendum on Brexit. In all of the furor I have not heard any specific date suggested by a major political figure for any election. A majority of the existing Parliament is for Remain, and it would be suicidal to Remain for there to be a general election before a second referendum.
