    Does the house still rise on 24th of July? I.e., will Boris not have to go through PMQs until September?

    That's exactly the point I'd imagine. It's effectively a tax on war and we tend to tax things to discourage their use. Not that the tax base has a whole lot of say in the matter of whether you go to...

    What comic?

    Because words have meaning. And those that try to subvert or contort the meaning of words, do so to make any debate impossible. Generally because they lack the arguments.
