So there we have it…it all comes down to Saturday…forget Premier League Football (sorry Rugby World Cup but you know that compared to Premier League football very few care), forget Final Score or Sports Report. This Saturday will be all about the Parliament channel. Or so we are told. With Brexit you can never say but if Boris Johnson does manage to get his withdrawal agreement through then it will be a massive political achievement and worthy of celebration. Boris Johnson will have proven me (not that I count for much at all in this context) and many other commentators wrong. He will have a massive triumph that he will be able to take to the country. Dominic Cummings will be hailed a political genius and everyone will clam that they saw this happening all along. Hail the conqueror they will cry. Jove walks amongst us.
Of course it could all go tits up and Johnson might be forced to accept a confirmatory referendum where there is a slightly more than even chance that Brexit would be rejected. (An outright defeat on Saturday would suit Johnson’s electoral purposes as well but clearly not as well as a victory.)
So sit back, grab the popcorn and let the debate begin! Or not.
