Parliament is about to start its summer recess on the hottest day of the year.
When it returns in September, who knows what – if anything – will have changed in Brexit.
It's worth reflecting on the fact that Brexit could have happened on March 29, had lawmakers approved Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement (which of course Johnson himself voted in favor of that day).
When the new prime minister announced that he would support May's deal, he said “I genuinely think that unless this thing gets through, the House of Commons is going to steal Brexit." His logic was, it's this Brexit or Brexit might not happen at all.
If nothing changes over summer and Johnson does indeed push for a no-deal Brexit, he might find parliament even more obstructive than they were with Theresa May.
So it might be a September standoff. No deal or no Brexit. Then the key question will be, do Johnson's rebel MPs have the guts to crash his government and trigger a general election?
Here's hoping everyone in Westminster gets some rest over summer. They'll need it.
