ON Monday we pointed out that Boris Johnson is under siege, thanks to the Parliamentary Remainer coup orchestrated by the republican Bercow, aided by the Supreme Court, and a Labour Party leader who seems terrified by the idea of a General Election.
We asked if Boris’s best option was to resign – but by an overwhelming majority you said NO! Only 7 per cent thought this was the course he should take.
Should Boris resign?

If the Conservative Party carries on the way they are going (and everyone else carries on the way they are going), the Conservatives will walk the next general election. They will walk it. It will be the easiest victory since 1979.
Labour are a schizoid mess: are they neoliberal globalist corporate remainers? Are they old-school if-it-moves-nationalise-it Socialists? Are they woke identity-mongers?
The Lib Dems have stuck up two fingers to the electorate by vowing to overturn the referendum result. They are fronted by the kind of strident JCR haranguer who might appeal to a certain middle-class, statist, establishment voter but nobody else.
The Tories have parked their tanks on Labour’s lawn, and Labour have run away. That’s what it looks like. They won’t call a VONC, they won’t call a GE. They have hidden behind the sofa.
The Tories will march right into Labour’s Leave heartlands with their message of Brexit and public spending and they will walk it. Mark my words. And any further attempts to thwart Brexit will just make that victory even more conclusive.
And this was D. Reynolds’s succinct observation:
No, but he needs to work with Farage.
