Who is trapped? There will be a general election - No Deal or Remain and the people will get to choose.. We'll all be happy with that and the subsequent outcome no doubt:cool:
I was referring to those Tory MP's who aren't yet wedded to No Deal (as a fallback). In other words the Gaukeward squad. If they vote against Boris in a VONC which then triggers a GE, Johnson could then set wheels in motion to have them deselected. If this weren't enough of a deterrent then they could be effectively giving Jeremy Corbyn the keys to number 10 with all that that entails. I just can't see that Phillip Hammond, for one, would relish seeing his work being torn down by John McDonnell in all of about 5 minutes. And all because he doesn't want to see a No Deal scenario which might not happen anyway.

Good news for the disadvantaged trying to get on the housing ownership ladder perhaps ?
Could be, assuming the economy (and therefore jobs) doesn't also tank. Historically, any policy that risks depreciating the assets on Acacia Avenue doesn't go down overly well with the Blue Rinse though.

Jeremy Corbyn will never be PM, Even those who might lose the whip or be in threat of deselection will not vote for a result that would make Corbyn, McDonnell and Abbott be given the chance to Govern, He'll, Even his own MP'S don't want him as PM. As I said before, He's against a no deal Brexit not Brexit and the Lib Dems and SNP want to remain full stop, If Johnson has to call a GE, He'll get No deal candidates in seats, Probably win with a majority and do it with a enough Tories to vote it through no matter what the opposition say or do

Guess it depends whether he thinks McDonnell or No Deal are the biggest threat to the UK.

It's becoming clearer and clearer that it is probably the second of the two that is the bigger threat.

Don't know about that DB.

Tone seems to have had a good idea for a change. Any election at the beginning of December will be a disaster for the Tories. If Labour don't vote for an election now, it is Johnson that's cornered, not them.
