I suggested in a comment a day or so back that Boris Johnson might not ask the Queen to give her assent to the legislation the Remainers rushed through Parliament on Wednesday to tie his hands. I wasn’t sure whether he could do that, but I’ve found at least one person saying (13minutes 45 seconds) that he could do exactly that.
So I now think that’s what will very likely happen.
With luck, Parliament will then be suspended/prorogued for 5 weeks, and we can forget about it all for a while.
Meanwhile, BBC reports:
Hurricane Dorian: Bahamas death toll expected to be ‘staggering’
According to the Bahamas Tribune, the official death toll has risen from 5 to 30.
According to the Sun:
“The public needs to prepare for unimaginable information about the death toll and the human suffering”…
On social media thousands are still listed as missing as British and American rescue teams hunt through the rubble for survivors.
People are also using websites such as DorianPeopleSearch.com, which currently lists the names of more than 5,500 missing people.
