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

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
Dominic Raab, the man who 1st put the rogue into prorogue & openly backed #Prorogation in Tory leadership campaign.

If we were playing "the one most likely to..." game, he'd be my choice for "become a serial killer". Something menacing about him. #StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Sajid Javid. I'll let you decide how fitting it is to appoint as Chancellor of the Exchequer a man who masterminded the sort of financial instruments at Deutsche Bank that brought the world's economy to its knees during the 2007/8 Financial Crisis.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Priti Patel - the woman who behaved like a fifth columnist, waging her own personal foreign policy in Israel, and who wanted to starve the Irish into submission (😱) is now our Home Secretary.

Heaven help us all.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Michael Brutus Gove, the man who's had enough of experts & after ruining UK's education system, is now destroying civil discourse by encouraging people to think the opinions of know-nothing pub-bores are equivalent to fact.

Leading #CrashOutBrexit😱

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Robert Buckland (Justice), admits #CrashOutBrexit will be chaos, but has bought into the myth it can be 'managed'.

Tory plans for 'managing' CoB involve stockpiling body bags, buying in extra rounds of ammunition for police & troops on our streets.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Stephen Barclay (DExEU), 3rd #Brexit Secretary in 3yrs. A grey man who hasn't made his mark, but managed to hold on to his Cabinet job+perks.

In denial abt #Backstop being a #Peace safety net that ONLY kicks-in if *alternative arrangements* fail.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Ben Wallace (Defence). Ooh la la! Is he ever in hot water with unelected bureaucrat Dom Cummings after he was caught on camera telling a French counterpart that BJ wanted a #Prorogation 'cos Govt doesn't have a majority — i.e. BJ lied to the Queen.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Matt Hancock (Health)

Man, has this #Prorogation business ever shown him up as a weasel hypocrite!

"That goes against everything that those men who waded onto those beaches [WW2 D-Day] fought & died for, and I will not have it,” he sniffed Jun2019.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Andrea Leadsom (Business), who ran to be PM on a fake CV*, has special insight 'cos she's a mother and famously said, "My best expectation, with my 30 years of financial experience**, is that there will not be an economic impact."

(** see *)

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Instagram junkie Liz Truss (Trade) is vying with Leadsom to take on Chris Grayling's mantle as 'dimmest, most inept Cabinet member'.

She told The Spectator, "This generation are Uber-riding, Airbnb-ing, Deliveroo-eating freedom fighters." (🤮)

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Amber Rudd (DWP) —what the Hell happened? She was one of the sensible Tories. Was she so desperate to hang on to a Cabinet job that she threw all principle to the wind?

"It's outrageous to consider proroguing Parliament. We are not Stuart kings."😮

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Gavin Williamson (Education) who when over-promoted to DefenceSec threatened to send a Destroyer to China, after which they broke off trade talks, and later sacked for breaking the Official Secrets Act, is now in charge of your children' education 😱

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Theresa Villiers (DEFRA) performs so poorly in TV interviews, one wonders what she's doing in Cabinet. Must be her implacable hatred of the EU. As a Transport minister in 2010, her 1st act was to have the EU flag removed from departmental buildings.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Robert Jenrick (Housing, Communities & Local Govt) really did once write to a constituent and tell him we couldn't possibly stop #Brexit now, as it would be too embarrassing.🤪

Was a Remainer, now a "personal ambition & party before country" man.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Tory MP Michael Fabricant said he wouldn't buy a used car from Grant Shapps aka Michael Green aka Sebastian Fox (Transport).

-Resigned as minister after bullying claims
-Disgraced as Party Chairman (GE2015 expense scandal)
-Plotted against May
#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Julian Smith (N.I.) is May's former Chief Whip who must keep the #DUP on board, propping up this minority government.

Don't mention the #Backstop!

Isn't it time the Tories dropped "Unionist" from their party's official name? #Brexit means break-up

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Alister Jack (Scotland), only elected as MP in 2017. This is a massive promotion for a man who rarely smiles (at least not on camera) - or else it's indicative of BJ's contempt for #Scotland, putting in such a green MP as secretary of state.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Alun Cairns (Wales) doesn't know that #Brexit means losing access to all 762 EU trade facilities —or pretends not to. He caused a furore during the Brecon by-election, lying on TV that farmers could export to Japan to compensate for lost EU markets.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Nicky Morgan (DCMS) has been on a strange journey. Once a #Brexit rebel who said, "Let us for the 1000th time dismiss the idea that a Brexit-induced fiscal windfall will relieve the pressures on our NHS," then fell for Malthouse nonsense on sticks.😬

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Alok Sharma (Intl Development) - 1st thing that springs to mind is watching him run away down the path that bisects College Green (aka Abingdon Street Gdns) as #StopBrexitSteve tried to interview him!

Practicing avoiding scrutiny before joining Govt?
#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
James Cleverly, MP for BRAINtree (Tory Chairman) is an example of life being ironic. (Almost as good as Dick Braine, leader of UKIP, the rump of the party that's taken over the Conservatives.)🙃

Will he heed Paterson's call for a Stalinesque *purge*?
#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
On to the "also attends Cabinet-ers"...

The faux-aristo known as "the haunted pencil" & "the 21stC's Oswald Mosley" coats devotion to extreme ideology with a veneer of impeccable manners. He's Leader of the House & Lord President of the Council.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Esther McVey (Housing/Communities/LocalGovt dept minister) —the MP with A-list hair who billed the taxpayer £8k for photographs. Misled the HoC when DWP SoS. Denied link between welfare cuts & soaring foodbank use. Claimed Tory cuts were #FakeNews!

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Jo Johnson (Universities minister AND a minister in the Business Dept too). Less than a year ago he wrote an impassioned resignation letter telling a few home truths abt #CrashOutBrexit & setting out the case for PV.

Blood is thicker than integrity?

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Sunak, Cox, Kwarteng, Dowden, Berry & Lewis also attend Cabinet, but never mind...

It's the turn of the woman the Daily Mail is promoting as 'First Lady'.

Don't ever feel sorry for former Tory spin Dr Symonds. She knew what she was getting into.
