In response to John Redwood: Parliament is asking the government to do the impossible,
The Article 50 extension to 31st October had conditions:
‘The EU27 agreed to delay to Brexit until 31 October (at the latest) – but with conditions:
The UK must participate in European Parliament elections in May. The Prime Minister also recognised this.
The UK must respect the principle of “sincere cooperation”. This means the UK cannot obstruct or undermine EU institutions or discussions in other areas.
There would be no renegotiation of the Withdrawal Agreement.’
So an answer might be to break these conditions, making any extension impossible. I am sure there are many ways to break the conditions but to get most publicity, I suggest a chlorinated chicken free trade deal agreed personally with President Trump starting immediately, as a gesture to further talks and agreements at 0 per cent duty and with the first load landing next week!
Perhaps I joke but there must be ways to break the conditions . . . a non-existent agreement cannot be extended and if cancelled we might even get some or all the extra fees back too.
Thank you J R for cutting through the Remainers’ falsities clearly again. ‘Silenced’!?! Remainers silence the voters again.
Shame none of this analysis ever gets into the MSM.
Instead, we hear: Johnson is a liar, anti-democratic, and all alone.

As far as I know a Scottish court has no jurisdiction in England. This seems to mean prorogation is currently legal in England, illegal in Scotland.
Let the Remain parliament sit in remain Scotland.
And remain there.
We have effectively replaced the land-owning elite that used to run parliament with a metropolitan land-owning elite as myopic and self interested as they ever were and with the same distaste for the ignorant peasantry.
