Not so lucky: Still, Boris Johnson’s planned visits to India are somehow frustrating. After two visits canceled, this is lucky for the third time, but only to the extent that the visit actually takes place this time. However, Boris Johnson must have wished that were not the case. Not at this time. The show in Ahmedabad will not be the same when he knows that the British Parliament will vote on an inquiry to determine whether he has infringed the concession.

Johnson is expected to survive the move in Parliament as well. But the Tories are whipping up the whip to get party members into the House and vote as required amid a simmering opposition refusing to appease. The prime minister wanted to be there in person for some last-minute dialogue, and more so, to pre-empt further conspiracy. In this business at a time like this, he can’t trust anyone.

Surviving this vote does not necessarily mean staying as prime minister. Police investigations into breaches of lockdown rules continue at 10 Downing Street. Other fines are expected. Johnson has already paid £50, making him the first serving prime minister found to have broken the law and been punished. Local elections and by-elections are close. If the voter forms the Conservative Party, Johnson will face an even more serious problem.

trade off: This is a time like no other when Boris Johnson wants to back with an exciting business deal with India in the bag. This has been promised since the early days of campaigning for Brexit. The desperate prime minister found some success with political optics through a visit to Kyiv. New Delhi now presents its next big opportunity to help Britain.

However, any such premature birth seems unlikely. Talks are underway to secure a trade deal between India and Britain. This is scheduled to continue until the end of the year at least. There can be no agreed trade deal this week. At best, it seems likely that there will be limited agreement on some basics. But for Johnson, it’s not about a deal at the moment, it’s about announcing something. This may be a small part of the deal, but Johnson is holding on to the shrapnel to save himself from the post of ex-prime minister.
