Will it be Hungary to the rescue? Otherwise, maybe prepare for Jeremy Corbyn.
We should hope Johnson succeeds in finding an EU member that will vote against another Brexit delay. Regardless of his success in doing so, he won’t go wobbly. It’s Brexit or bust for Boris.

The United Kingdom has never been a good fit in the European Union. It has never been a continental power. Since the 1707 Acts of Union it has been a proudly independent state.

In 2016 then-Prime Minister David Cameron first called a public referendum on the divorce and then campaigned against it. When the vote was counted, Brexit was chosen by a vote of 52 percent to 48 percent. Cameron resigned and was replaced by the hapless Theresa May.

May negotiated a godawful deal with the EU to accomplish Brexit. But her deal — which included the infamous “Irish backstop,” about which more in a minute — would have rendered the UK subject to EU laws and regulations while preventing it from having any say in their writing. During her prime ministership, the UK parliament rejected her deal three times.

In the course of rejecting May’s bad deal, Parliament has made itself a laughingstock. It has rejected May’s deal, rejected leaving the EU with no deal, and rejected every other decent alternative. What it seems to want most is to avoid any responsibility for Brexit, deal or no deal. Parliament lacks the courage to say what it undoubtedly thinks: that a new referendum should be held so that the outcome of Cameron’s referendum can be reversed.

Now it’s Boris Johnson’s turn to try to make good on Brexit.
