Jumping before he finds himself pushed, or being in the "difficult" position of having to explain some things.

Did you draw the cartoon in today's 'Times'? ???

I'm not that clever. No, I hadn't seen it. I have now, spot on.

He's jumping to avoid any future backlash, particularly if Boris does actually manage to get his way.

The Tories leaked last week that they would break with convention in the upcoming election and put up a candidate against the speaker in his constituency, hence he is jumping before he is pushed.
Littlejohn in todays Mail sums him up perfectly.

Presumably Boris cannot be arrested before November 1st, as it wouldn't be until we have left the EU without a deal that the law would be broken... :-\

Which surely makes it a rather moot point...

I don't think he can be arrested anyway as under article 50 under EU law which takes precedence over UK law until we leave, any extension is the exclusive preserve of the PM and any UK law can't interfere with that. ;) Under the 1947 Crown Proceedings act crown v crown is specifically excluded or he could use Blair's 2003 Civil Disorder Act to suspend any act that he considers a danger to public order as his nuclear option.

This basically means we are leaving on the 31st under the current EU withdrawal act, unless parliament finds a way to stop this between the 15th & 31st of October. I suspect Dominic Cummings is well ahead of all of this which is why they are so confident we are leaving, with or without a deal.

Some options here.

Or revoke article 50 now, which means he doesn't have to request an extension. Then have he election and assuming he wins a majority, invoke article 50 again immediately
Word is that the legislation is badly drafted and decent lawyers will find a way through it without breaking the law.

......But after saying that Boris has actually done what he said he would do, when others, like Bercow, said he could not and would be stopped;  he HAS successfully suspended Parliament!! :o :o :D ;)

............and that had EVERYTHING to do with the one and only, simply gorgeous, Steve McQueen in the starring roll :-* :-* :-*

The scene where he is flying the glider with the song being sung is particularly memorable 8) 8) 8)
