and yet another MP loses his seat after a recall petition so predictions for here then

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-politics-48720176

A by-election will be held in Brecon and Radnorshire after 10,005 people signed a petition to remove the constituency's Tory MP, Chris Davies.

Mr Davies has been MP for Brecon and Radnorshire since the 2015 general election, when he beat incumbent Liberal Democrat Roger Williams with a majority of 5,102.
In the 2017 snap election Chris Davies's majority rose to 8,038.

Quite a big Tory majority but if Brexit party takes 10000 votes off tories Lib Dems or labour could sneak in

If the Tories put up an out and out Brexiteer, then maybe the Brexit party might not put a candidate forward.

A convicted fraudster allowed to restand?

He isnt "fit and proper"

Mr Davies was convicted of a false expenses claim in March.

A total of 19% of the constituency's electorate signed the petition, almost double the 10% threshold to trigger a by-election.

Confirming his intention to stand again, Mr Davies said he "looked forward to regaining" voters' trust.

"I am naturally disappointed with the result," he said.

"What happened was my fault and no-one else's."

Gloria Coffee Cup isn't standing for Labour in Ashfield anymore, she only won the last election by a few hundred votes. People don't like her because they voted to leave yet she's a remainer.

so Lib dems take the seat courtesy of a deal with the other parties not to stand

Interesting times ahead Boris's majority is even shakier mind you labour nearly losing their deposit was an even worse result

Brexit with or without a deal now looking less likely

Only one way of a no deal, or deal, Brexit being stopped, and that's the revoking of article 50.

And that's never going to happen for a number of reasons. One of those being time.

according to the radio this morning no deal is the default position of article 50 so unless it is revoked by parliament we can leave with no deal but with such a slim majority now can Boris prevent parliament voting on that ?

Because the PM requested it, and the EU agreed.

Can't see either of those happening again, especially the former.
