Am hoping the supreme court develops a test of "Boris Johnson improper purpose" (like "Wednesbury Unreasonableness") which can be his lasting personal legacy to constitutional law https://t.co/p9Si7zDfHR

Glorious morning in Dublin. Here's this week's podcast linking Brexit, the UK and @nntaleb anti-fragile idea plus why the DUP have just done more to end NI as a political entity than any nationalist politician, ever! It's all goin' on!!https://t.co/psGBe4DK8R

Things fall apart…
Actually, hold on a minute. Imagine a Corbyn supporter listed opponents of the Labour leader to be executed – as this Boris Johnson supporter has done – and got 1,000 RTs and lots of tweets suggesting the method of death.
Every newspaper would make it a story. https://t.co/qtPc7Jkcnt

Last month I wrote an open letter to the CEO of @Walmart about ending gun violence. I got an email that day from @LEVIS CEO Chip Bergh that it got him “thinking” about what more could be done. Today, he got 145 CEOs to do this: https://t.co/HA8uEgWDIo
