While waiting for flight I thought I'd investigate the observation by @JohnJCrace and others that many Leavers who insisted #parliament prorogation was nowt to do with Brexit then decried yesterday's Supreme Court ruling to quash it as an attack against Brexit & democracy itself
Turns out there are hundreds of Twitter accounts who enacted this turnaround, unearthed by a simple search on the words "prorogued every year", as that's what they all said when Boris did it: "It happens every year don't it - as if it's got anything to do with Brexit this time!"

How's this for a compromise deal @theresa_may: if we crash out and there are food shortages, Leavers go to the back of the queue. Same for insulin/medicines if their supply is affected. Because this apparently is what they wanted all along #Brexit#PoliticsLive
Could use your polling cards as ration books: X for Remain means express queue while Brexiters get to wait in the hardship anteroom, where they can sip on beakers of blitz spirit and indulge in the mass privation that's been painted as 'good for the country'
