Mathew Goodwin points out that Canadian PM Stephen Harper prorogued Parliament after the 2008 federal election to keep opposition parties from passing a no confidence motion. Harper was accused of insulting Canadian democracy. He survived & won a majority at the next election. Do you think the same thing will happen with Boris?

The eminently sensible Matthew Goodwin – a British academic who is currently Professor of Politics in the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent, and Associate Fellow at Chatham House – tweeted out that proroguing happened in Canada. And it worked for Stephen Harper.

It’s a risky move by Boris, but do you think it will work?

Cast your predictions now.

Will proroguing Parliament work for Boris? Will he win the next election with a majority at the next election?
