Default Brexit from 4th Sept - Boris calls for a General Election

Just a suggestion, but could we open a new Brexit thread? The other is long enough and I do feel the whole thing is taking another direction now.

Could there be an early general election?

It needs 434 MPs to vote for it and it doesn't look like there is anywhere near that number there.

Nothing to worry about; We are in EU and we would be in the EU for millions of years to come. We have our collaborators in the UK and EU parliament very well paid and no BJ or donkey-Harry would ever remove us from EU. Dominic Lopecas

To me, Boris has the same look now as he did immediately after the referendum result - shell shocked. Then he just went to ground, but now he has nowhere to hide. Should have been more careful what he wished for.
