Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe I am confused as a result of living in a land where we are all tired of winning, but it sure seems to me that the media coverage of Boris Johnson's "losses" is off the mark.

If his goal is to get the UK out of the EU on 31 October, all he needs is delay. With parliament unable to agree on what they want, all he has to do is squeeze their timeline.

Looks to me like that is exactly what he is succeeding in doing. For example, instead of working overtime to come up with a compromise solution, parliament has just wasted a week passing a useless "no no-deal Brexit" law. And Corbyn saying there will be no election until after October means BoJo is safe until then, and that the remoaners can't actually promise to Macron that there will be some sort of democratic action taken if the EU agrees to an extension.

Boris is winning.
