General agreement on here tonight that this UK plan for customs posts (as per @tconnellyRTE) either side of the Irish border will flop. So will Boris Johnson now table something genuinely workable after @Conservatives conference? https://t.co/jzZi2IvyvS

I saw a Matt cartoon weeks ago about UK proposals for N.I. Border. It was an "honesty box". I laughed & moved on.
Now it turns out that is effectively Boris Johnson's "proposal #4"… (last paragraph).

OK, I thought I'd pretty much lost the capacity to be shocked by anything Team Trump does but I have to say I'm flabbergasted by Barr, Pompeo and the highest U.S. officials taking part in a vast international conspiracy to go after Trump's enemies. Am I right to be stunned?

Flashback: May 1.
Harris: Has the president or anyone at the W.H. ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone?
Harris: Seems you'd remember something like that and be able to tell us.
Barr: Yeah, but I'm trying to grapple with the word suggest. pic.twitter.com/ddYFoHP7T5
