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.

#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

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.

As a distraction from the Tory Party and the #NoConfidence vote in Westminster, let's look at some porn...
.
.
...or rather at the annual dump of data from @Pornhub about how we search for and watch porn.

pornhub.com/insights/2018-…
The report on media usage from @Ofcom earlier this year suggests adults in the UK watch 2 minutes of porn every day. And this number might be under-reported if people don't want to admit to that
And every minute in 2018 almost 64,000 people globally visited Pornhub. That's an increase of 13.5% compared to 2017. In 2017, just over 1 hour of content was uploaded to Pornhub every minute. That number almost doubled in 2018. 2 hours of content uploaded every minute.

How on Earth is Yulia Skripal's cousin Viktoria being denied a visit to come and see her not a massive news scandal? What the hell is going on, as if the government didn't look bad enough already! What kind of precedent does it set for when a UK citizen is hospitalised in Russia?
Lets have a look at what has happened from the initial incident - Thread

1/ In the immediate discovery of the gravely ill Skripals, the initial reports said that Mr Skripal was potentially being treated for opiate overdose, specifically the opoid Fentanyl. Why was this reported?
2/ Then the narrative changed to nerve agent poisioning and Media reports emerged of around 40 people being treated for exposure to toxic chemicals - later refuted and totally debunked by Doctor in local hospital.

It's #WorldKindnessDay
@nickynoo007 made the brilliant suggestion to #KillBrexitWithKindness
Here's my *stab*: thank you #Brexit for honing my power point skills. In gratitude, I'm posting my top-20 most popular anti-#Brexit/#StopBrexit memes (in no particular order).
1. One of the more recent ones on @DavidDavisMP hypocrisy over his failure to release the Brexit Impact Reports or sector studies or whatever they are, which he testified existed in "excruciating detail"
Release the #BrexitImpactReports #StopBrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
2. Never has this one on the #Tory Kakistocracy seemed more relevant with @michaelgove throwing #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe under a bus on #Marr to throw a political lifeline to his dangerously incompetent buddy @BorisJohnson

I have #NoConfidence in a PM who has turned lying into a sport.
I have #NoConfidence in a Foreign Secretary with the diplomacy skills of a drunk parrot.
I have #NoConfidence in an Environment Minister who thinks Experts are "old news"

The people have #NoConfidence in Brexit. Polls show 52% of voters now want to Remain. Over 60% of under-55s want to Remain. #StopBrexit.
2. Under-35s overwhelmingly want to Remain in the EU: 68% Remain.
3. Big shift in 35-54s: now majority Remain. Went from 45% Remain in September poll to 53% in the latest poll.
