It's down to parliament and @JolyonMaugham to stop it now, if this is true. 👇

"Brexit: Boris Johnson says he has secured 'great new deal' with EU – live news".

👆 Oh, hang on - the #DUP aren't on board & won't vote for it...
👆Didn't @theresa_may have one of those?

What happened to that?

Did it collapse in flames?

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

Today is possibly .@theresa_may's last day as PM, if .@BorisJohnson can command a majority (which is in some doubt...)

So it's a great opportunity to look back at some of the *highlights* of Mrs May's premiership in memes👇
13 JUL 2016: May was appointed as PM and named her Cabinet shortly thereafter, surprising many by giving 3 of the top #Brexit-related jobs to arch-brexiters Boris Johnson, David Davis & Liam Fox. Sheer folly, or genius in making them own what they'd sold? Sadly, the former😢
/1.
5 OCT 2016: With such a narrow result, the country could be forgiven for expecting May to propose a consensual solution, as Norway PM Erna Solberg had done in a similar situation. Most Remainers would've accepted #Norway.

May's #CitizensOfNowhere speech crushed all hope.

THREAD of LEGENDS

To mark #3Years since the largest vote for anything in the UK’s history let’s celebrate the MPs, who by their actions in Parliament, have kept our #Brexit dream alive. They are an elite band of #BrexitSpartans. Every one a #BrexitLegend

28 #Conservatives
10 #DUP

Here they are below. Please give them a RT

#Brexit news for today:

Nigel Adams, Minister for Wales, and Governement whip has resigned the #Cabinet over #TheresaMay's way forward.

1/n

You can hear #TheresaMay's reaction from here

2/n
So the splitting of the #ToryParty continues. Where will it end? And can we expect resignations from #Labour if #Corbyn is seen as giving up too much to #TheresaMay during the discussions tonight.

@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Report here is obfuscation. Issue isn't the total collective campaign spending, it’s about who broke the law & how. #Remain campaigns were fined for failing to submitting returns correctly. They didn’t act fraudulently to overspend. The largest fine was to Lib Dems, £18K. 1/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Carole Cadwalladr & others have reported extensively: The #Leave campaigns have been found guilty of serious breaches of the law by the Electoral Commission and the ICO and are now under criminal investigation for other offences. 2/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Vote Leave – Official Leave campaign: Fined £61K by Electoral Commission for colluding with BeLeave & overspending the £7m limit by £500k. They paid #AIQ this amount for Facebook ads in the name of BeLeave. Vote Leave now referred to Met/NCA for further suspected fraud. 3/

Sulla #Brexit Theresa May ha commesso molti errori quasi tutti evitabili (segue)
Ha iniziato con un peccato originale. Votando e sostenendo il #Remain nel #referendum sulla #Brexit (segue)
Arriva al governo credendo di aver messo al tappeto l’unico vero kingmaker nel Partito Conservatore @BorisJohnson senza il quale al referendum sulla #Brexit i #Leave non avrebbero prevalso sui #remain (segue)

#Tory conference on the horizon & the 'no deal' #Brexit vultures circle the carcass. All the usual suspects incl' Littlewood, Singham and @SteveBakerHW for the IEA. @isaby, @Jacob_Rees_Mogg, @DanielJHannan, @patel4witham, @andreajenkyns for @matthew_elliott's BrexitCentral......
Thick as thieves...... Hannan and Singham again, Bromund of 'Anglo-American Relations,' Steifel of the Cato Institute, for the Heritage Foundation. The IEA again, this time with Arlene Foster and Nigel Dodds of the #DUP.
Flies on a turd..... Elliott's infamous 'Tax Payers' Alliance,' with Priti Patel again, and, of course @LowTaxChloe. The Bruges Group, with Patel (again), Jenkyns (again) and @OwenPaterson.....

Soaking up some very sobering info this afternoon at 'The Future of UK #Borders after #Brexit' organised by the indefatigable @hayward_katy in assoc w/ @UKandEU, @FortinusGlobal, @ShankerASingham. Invaluable research & policy engagement - nice work @QUBEngagement #Impact
Hayward poses key qs for us in NI in these precarious times - neither of which glean clear answer: (1) what opportunities does #Brexit offer NI? (2) what cost is British Govt prepared to incur for #Brexit - when polls indicate maj GB indifference to hard border,collapse of peace?
Personal opinion incoming:
I’ve previously said I think #Brexit is a moral, ethical, economic, social, & cultural crisis. I generally refrain from nailing my political colours to the post publicly, but the seriousness of the negative impacts of this ‘project’ are exceptional...
