Johnson is no guarantee of a clean Brexit

Dalrymple points out that the ascension of Boris Johnson

by no means guarantees that Britain will leave the European Union by October 31.

He notes that although hardly dull like his predecessors, Johnson

is not a man of firm and unalterable principle, either.

The British prime minister might

  • wring some minor concession from the EU, declare victory, and try to get some version of Theresa May’s deal past Parliament—in effect, leaving the union without leaving it.
  • suffer a motion of no confidence, his majority being wafer-thin, with many enemies in his Conservative party.
  • call an election, which he might lose.
