The chaos in Westminster it almost palpable
Johnson is said to be holding a cabinet meeting (what will be left of them if he goes on the way he is doing) this afternoon on how to deal with Tory rebels (the utter contempt for democracy by calling those who oppose the Prime Minister "Rebels" is the stuff that feeds a dictatorship)
Despite the fact that there was a sectarian riot in Glasgow and three sectarian incidents in Belfast over the weekend, the Northern Ireland Secretary's visit has been cancelled, so the pretence of supporting the province seems to have ridden off into the sunset
Corbyn is supporting te idea of a general election, which is what all this seems to be about anyway
I don't know if Labour can win, but if they can't Britain can forget anything that resembles democracy for some time to come
No wonder Johnsong announced a massive spending on law and order and prisn's - he's going to need it
Never mid - Mike Pence is visiting Ireland this week - maybe he can nip over to London to give them some tips on 'Special Rendition' U.S. style - never know, might come in handy
