BoJo "in jail" is a UK domestic, criminal charge. Are you expecting Johnson to appeal a conviction to the ECHR before or after 31 Oct in order to further delay UK exit from the TEU?
Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
If Johnson doesn't resign Parliament has a number of other options, including emergency legislation to work around the limitations of the Fixed Term Act.
Either way - unless Johnson goes full Pinochet and puts the army on the streets, this is already over.
What are the steps to imprison a sitting prime minister? Presumably a remoaner would apply to some (which?) court for an injunction on 21 October (the 20th a Sunday), then a judge would issue a summons on the 22nd? There would have to be some kind of a hearing, maybe a couple of days (23,24)? An appeal (25, 26)? Maybe on Monday 28 October BoJo is finally confronted with actually complying or going to jail. He goes to jail (29th), parliament agrees (?) Corbyn (!) to deliver the text to the EU (30), he shows up in Brussels on the 31st. EU waves magic wand and everything's good until January.
Very tight timeline.
