RT @MaryRiddell: Boris Johnson on the ropes. His best MPs have shown their scorn for him. If he goes on to sack them, he will rip the heart, soul and brain from his party. Applaud the Tory rebels. In defying a no deal Brexit, they speak for democracy and for the people

RT @lewis_goodall: With the whip being removed from 21 Tory MPs the Conservatives are down to 289 seats. That’s down from 317 at the election. Consequently there are now 36 independents. The third largest group in the Commons.

RT @JimMFelton: Boris Johnson prorogued parliament, pissed off his colleagues till they’re willing to vote against him, lost his majority live on TV and later today he’ll be firing his hero Churchill’s grandson. Not entirely sure he’s the brilliant tactician everyone has been led to believe.
