MoreAs PM, Mr Johnson hasn’t actually won a single Commons vote, before asking and getting the Queen to suspend it ... that hasn’t happened at least post war/ in this monarch’s reign.
How's that fine idea of "Democracy", "will of the people" and "taking back control" thing working out for many of you fine folks tonight?

Comfortable with the day's events?..... left winger or right winger - be honest...any doubts? Any chance, just perhaps, that you are beginning to realise you've helped let a genie, that perhaps you cannot control, out of the bottle?

I'm not going to draw parallels with the 1930s, that has rightly been done to death already... Instead I'll leave you with a few wise words from 1863: "Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."...Well, I really hope so, but tonight I'm not so sure..
