Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Although I am of the opinion that Boris might try it and shout "see you in court!!!". By the time the case can be tried and a judgement passed, it'll be far too late. No deal will have happened.

Also, judging by the pronouncements over the high court judgements on pro-roguing, I think the courts are trying to stay out of politics.

Of course, Boris or cummings might go to jail, but I doubt it. they'll be fined, slapped on the wrist. Even if they do go, presuming a Tory govt, they'll be pardoned, ennobled and sent to the Lords from which they'll rule in absentia from the bar of a luxury yacht in the Mediterranean after they've cashed in their winnings

For one so young you are so cynical!
As a public schoolboy Boris will have been taught to obey the rules and present his back-side for a good thrashing if he disobeys them...
If he were serious about doing such things he wouldn't be allowing his Sherpas to be speculating to the media about them. Never let your enemy see you coming...
