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 ?

Yes, quite easily.

MPs often give it the big'en but they love their position in parliament.

If any Tory MP voted to revoke article 50 that would be the end of their careers, whether they represented pro or anti EU areas. Also up to 100 Labour MPs would be voted out by their constituents in the election that would follow soon after.

In short revoking article 50 will never happen.

A vote of no confidence could happen, but that would again end any Tory MPs career if they voted against the government, and many Labour MPs would either abstain or vote with the government.

But even if that was lost, a general election would not happen before the 31/10, and by then we would be out anyway.
