For No Deal Fans this will come as great news, from todayís Times:

Is there any chance that a deal could be struck with the EU before October 31?

Almost certainly not. The EU is prepared to make some concessions to get a deal but not enough to meet Mr Johnsonís red lines and not until they can be reasonably certain that they will be passed by parliament.

Mr Johnson has overstated how the threat of no-deal could force the EU to make concessions. But it could help to get a compromise over the line if that compromise included some kind of Irish backstop.

Insiders in London and Brussels confirm that no meaningful negotiations are taking place at the moment and that talks are focused on scoping out each otherís positions.

It is wrong to suggest that there could be a last-minute unexpected deal struck between Mr Johnson and the other EU27 leaders at the summit on October 17. A deal would have to have been negotiated in advance to be signed off at that meeting. Throughout the Brexit negotiations EU leaders have refused to negotiate head to head with the British prime minister. That is not going to change now.

Another one bites the dust; Bercow's stepping down now. Will there be anyone to vote for if we ever have a general election, I wonder.
Of course there will.  The Brexit Party will be fielding a candidate in every constituency.  Donít worry (not that you seem that bothered about voting for anything anyway),

I voted to remain in the EU but I have to admit I think Boris is playing a blinder. In the space of a few weeks he has exposed Labour under Corbyn for what they really are & it was particularly satisfying to watch Emily Thornberry on QT last Thursday digging an even deeper pit for her party.
IMO - let's leave without a deal and then wait for the EU to come to us with a begging bowl. Maybe that's a simplistic view but Belgium, France & Germany will be particularly badly hit by a No Deal Brexit.

Yes, Emily Thornberry on QT was HILARIOUS.  Talk about cognitive dissonance!

Good news indeed, let's just get out and do the negotiating afterwards. I'm quite sure the £39 billion carrot will be useful.

I'm not sure it's the best tactic in the world to renege on your promises and then expect to get a great deal afterwards, but still...
