It's Friday. Let's have some fun and get to know our foes in this Rogue Government's Cabinet a little better.

#StopTheCoup
First up, the PM & aspiring dictator, selected by 0.13% of the population, but who hasn't yet faced a GE as PM - something he considered an #AffrontToDemocracy when Gordon Brown took over from Tony Blair.

Johnson: the poster-boy of the #BrexitCoup.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Not officially in Cabinet, unelected bureaucrat & grand vizier Dominic Cummings nevertheless sets the agenda, calls the shots & yanks BJ's strings.

Cameron once called him a 'career psychopath'. He is in contempt of parliament & appears to be amoral. #StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke

For my sins, I just made two 20-odd minute calls to the EU Settlement Scheme helpline (0300 123 7379) to ask how my DK husband (resident in UK for 20+years) could evidence eligibility for Settled Status after 31/10/19 if he's outside the UK after #CrashOutBrexit. 1/
The helpline advisers are very pleasant but clearly highly stressed and unequipped to deal with detailed questions which stray outside their "lines to take". The first adviser told me something completely different to the second. 2/
1st adviser said "there is no change to govt policy. Scheme is open until 31/12/20 to EU citizens who can evidence residence in the UK before December 2020." This differs from the Home Office line here: homeofficemedia.blog.gov.uk/2019/08/19/med… which states: 3/

@CBItweets said earlier that no deal planning is worthwhile because "When you see a storm coming, you still put out sandbags. We'll definitely lose the kitchen but might be able to save the bedroom"

I worked in the insurance industry during 2005. Lets unpick that analogy.

When a month's worth of rain fell in 24 hours in January 2005 it resulted the worst flooding the city of Carlisle experienced in over 200 years. 3 people died in Carlisle & around 3000 were made homeless. 2/ google.com/amp/s/amp.theg…
In the immediate aftermath the Emergency Planning Unit of Cumbria County Council called a multi agency response and established a district control centre to coordinate the efforts of emergency services, voluntary organisation, media and insurance industry adjusters. 3/

Like many, I signed a petition calling for a referendum on Mrs May's proposed Brexit, & today I received the response from the govt.
For those that didn't sign up to this particular petition, I reproduce it here, with my response
My MP, @JHowellUK probably hasn't seen it

The response came from the Department for Exiting the European Union.

It starts by insisting that the govt will "respect the result of the 2016 ref"
This is such a key point that they say it twice, using "clear" on both occasions to emphasise it.

But look at that 3rd paragraph.
Apparently the 2016 ref gave a very clear instruction to the govt.
If it was so clear, why is there so much discord amongst Leave voters? Not one of those I met outside Parliament on 29/01 were happy
