Nice to see youíre following the BJ mantra of "I didnít actually say that" (even though there is recorded video evidence of him saying it), and the old faithful "it has been taken out of context"...
BoJo has the strength of personality such that less critical minds will simply accept as the truth what he says even if they heard him saying the exact opposite the day before.

Boris Johnson is like Jeremy Corbyn where both parties have become ideological sects where they cannot be challenged and the most ridiculous thinking prevails as gospel.

It wasn't due to political dogma then seeing as the two leadership candidates seem determined to unravel the cuts by hiring more police, increasing nhs spending etc etc etc

I think they both suspect they'll be unable to deliver on any of this stuff anyway as an election is coming....

They're both counting on no-deal being blocked and the blocking side are coming together.

Too late, we have already left.

When our second extension was agreed, the EU made a mistake in Article 2 in the document they passed as law. This states:

“This decision shall cease to apply on 31 May 2019 in the event that the United Kingdom has not held elections to the European Parliament in accordance with applicable Union law and has notratified the Withdrawal Agreement by 22 May 2019.”

We did the first but not the second. So we're out!

Re: Leadership who is the next PM?

That’s good - I’m sure a Speccy columnist is completely au fait with international law and treaties.

I can’t seem to find him on the Law Society rolls, but I am sure he has extensive legal experience specialising in international treaties (he probably thinks we can invoke Article 24 as well, even if the EU don’t agree...).

Well maybe so, or may be not. However, your response to the actual question is what?
Don't worry yourself. Breath not being held
