After the overnight proroguing of parliament, could the UK be headed straight towards a no-deal Brexit? Boris Johnson's bound by law now to ask for an extension unless there's an agreement with the European Union... but the new PM's defiant, saying come what may, Britain's leaving October 31st. With MPs in recess for the next five weeks, François Picard's panel measures just how much Johnson is testing the UK's democracy.

With us tonight: Leave supporter Simon BREWER (CEO & Director, Vantage Investment Advisory), Duncan FAIRGRIEVE, (Professor of comparative Law, University Paris Dauphine) and economist Rémi BOURGEOT “associate fellow at IRIS).
