...Mr Johnson has argued that if the UK crashes out of the EU without a deal on 31 October, businesses will still be able to continue tariff-free trade with Europe under an obscure trading law known as Gatt 24. Without this protection, thousands of goods traded between the UK and the EU would be subject to standard WTO tariffs, adding considerably to costs to consumers.

But WTO director general Roberto Azevedo has now baldly stated that the mechanism – which his organisation oversees – cannot be invoked unless the parties involved have reached agreement on a future trade deal.

He told Prospect magazine that Gatt 24 only applies in the period between a deal being struck and its full implementation.

Will Boris Johnson’s free-trade zones really boost the economy?
“If there is no agreement, then Article 24 would not apply, and the standard WTO terms would,” said Mr Azevedo...

Presumably that means May gets to choose successor rather than Boris.

Who was running the show before them? You're implying that we need the EU to protect us from the Americans, which is bollocks.

No, I think he's implying that handing over a blank cheque to the Tory right to carry out the "will of the people" wasn't a very good idea.

Look it's not May/Johnson's fault for being cucks. Or Trump for being a manchild. It's Russia's fault for the leaks!

Darroch- a new hero appears.

Nigel Farage has said that all public officials (including civil servants) who object to Brexit should "either change their ways or be removed".

An ideological purge. That doesn’t sound sinister at all.

Prorogation under Boris looking nailed on now. Only took a few weeks to turn it from a ridiculous prospect that could tear our constitution apart to being a handy tool in the government's arsenal to bypass an unwilling parliament;

It's very important to carry out the will of the people, otherwise there could be an election that Labour could democratically win and then let the people choose what to do.

Proroguing would be the end of Johnson, wouldn't it? There's no way he'd have the confidence of a majority of parliament after that. It's touch and go whether he's going to have it before.

Would there be enough Tory rebels (the DUP would have to abandon the confidence and supply agreement to vote no-con) willing to vote themselves out of government to shift him from Downing Street?

I don’t think so.

Of course there aren’t.

Look at the way that Rudd has been toadying up to Johnson in the hope of serving in his cabinet. Is this really the same person as the one who said you couldn’t trust BJ to take you home at the end of a party, or whatever it was?

No chance. They'll posture and bluff and then chicken out like they always do.

Maybe. As we get closer to elections and Brexiteer entryists are determined to deselect these MPs, I can see a few jumping before they are pushed.

If they voted with Boris Johnson to help him do a hard Brexits, surely that would be the end of any credibility they had left.

They hate Corbyn more than the tories so wouldn't do anything to enable a Labour government. Maybe they'd abstain whilst sending out a press release talking about anti-semitism and how unfit JC is to be leader..

Dismay from Nigel Farage as he remarks that Ursula von der Leyen "scraped in by 9 votes" giving her "power but no legitimacy".

Her vote share equates to 52%.

Possibly, although there are only ten of them now, split up into three disparate groups (5 x Change UK, 4 x The Independents and Wollaston on her own). They all have different aims, so they may not all vote the same way. Chuka's on the Lib Dem whip so he'll follow whatever they are doing (probably voting against the government).

The problem I have with all of these prospective plans to vote down Johnson is that, based on polling trends, I can't see an election where the Brexit Party aren't the main benefactors. The Lib Dems translating their EU performance onto the national stage are literally our only hope to avoid no deal.

Then the future consists of either a low-tax, low-service economy in the EU with everything in private hands or a low-tax, low-service economy out of the EU with everything in private hands.
