The Prime Minister has announced her planned resignation. She has not spoken to the country; she has not told parliament; she has told a closed meeting of Tory MPs and released a text. May in a nutshell

A consequence of May's likely resignation is that the unresolved question of Britain's future relations with Europe, to be negotiated in phase 2 of talks, will largely be decided on hustings in a Tory Party leadership contest. Fewer than 120,000 deciding on behalf of 46m.

Having tried to enable both against the wishes of most of NI, the DUP now finds itself getting in the way of both Brexit and a Hard Brexit Tory leader. https://t.co/hDkE2jyyKr

The DUP are exceptionally precise with language – especially in statements. This does not say the DUP will vote against the deal. Rather, it says they won't vote for it. However, the logic of the rhetoric in the statement is that they cannot abstain – they have to vote against it pic.twitter.com/xJca4S1L1q

BREAKING: @Jacob_Rees_Mogg tells #peston that if DUP can't be brought round, then "I will support the DUP, if they are still opposing it". In other words, he's off-side again.

All this, all of this, just because Boris Johnson wants to be Prime Minister.
The UK has to now implode, in real time, just because Boris Johnson wants to be Prime Minister.

Boris Johnson is contemptible- grinning from ear to ear after the 1922 Committee tonight, contemplating his manoeuvres may have landed him the Prime Ministership. He is a charlatan and a shit, not competent to run a whelk stall . He will split country and party.

Four months ago, Boris Johnson told the DUP conference that Theresa May's deal would mean Northern Ireland becoming "an economic semi-colony of the EU…no Conservative British Government could or should sign up to such arrangements".
Tonight he says he's voting for her deal. pic.twitter.com/uKLtV9pTEe

Far be it from me to fuck up anyone's day or anything, but we need to remember that whatever happens over the next few weeks, barring some miracle that causes Article 50 to be revoked, is just the start of it.
We have fucking YEARS of this shit pencilled in. Years. Ｙｅａｒｓ.

I like how the Speaker saying he won’t allow a third vote on the deal was such a curveball that that the rest of the news has just been in denial and carried on for the past week as if there is going to be a vote – with no clear explanation of how it happens

Anyone sense a pattern? In new @CNN poll 43% say #Mueller report exonerated Trump. In 2016, Trump won 46% of vote. In 2018, Rs won 45% of House vote & 45% approved of Trump in exits. Roughly 40% approve of #borderwall & emergency. That's his audience. https://t.co/kDOF9Iou4u
