Restoring Control?

Without any sense of irony whatsoever, it has come to pass that the fate of Boris's bill (pull it and call an election, or push ahead with it for a couple of weeks) rests with the EU who will ponder how long an extension to grant the UK.

- A short one, and Boris will proceed with the bill.

- A long one, and Boris will pull the bill and try to call an election.

We will not know the EU's decision until Friday (odds are they will grant a long extension to 31 January 2020).
