THIS is your chance to reckon the political odds. With Boris ‘snookered’ by the Remainers, as the Telegraph’s Sherelle Jacobs puts it, and the near-certainty there’s to be no election before October 31, what are the chances of our leaving the EU on any terms by that date?

Could Boris – if he hasn’t resigned by then – still pull a rabbit out of the EU hat and if he can, will the Commons accept a WA rehash? Could we still leave with a no-deal?

MPs might think that they have stymied a no-deal exit once and for all, but it is not really in their hands. What are the chances that Boris’s request for an extension – should he surrender and make it – be agreed by the EU? Will Macron say enough is enough, good riddance to bad rubbish, refuse to agree to an extension as he has threatened previously, and prevail with the rest of the EU?

These are all factors to consider in your prediction about our country’s future as of October 31.
