I want Johnson or Rees-Mogg solely so that an election is more likely to trigger.

Given how the last surprise election ended for the Tories, I feel like no matter how confident they may feel upon becoming Prime Minister neither Johnson nor Rees-Mogg would ever want to call an election until they were legally required to.

To do so at this juncture (or the juncture at which they become Prime Minister) would be nothing short of an act of political self-harm.

It’s why I want them to do it. I just know neither of them would unless somehow forced to do it.
