      Imagine that it was Jeremy Corbyn, not Boris Johnson, who became prime minister last week.

      Imagine that he had been put there by 93,000 mainly left-wing Labour members. Imagine he then reshaped the Cabinet to make sure it was filled with personal loyalists, immediately sacking almost every centrist minister and creating an extreme sectarian government.

      Suppose that within minutes of kissing the hand of the Queen, Corbyn breached royal protocol by briefing the press about what the monarch had told him in private - and that the pound was in free-fall, hitting a two-year low, as the new prime minister committed himself to investing tens of billions of pounds in extra government spending within days of entering office.

      Imagine that he'd just ditched his wife of twenty-six years standing, and the mother of his four children, and installed in Downing Street a 31-year old girlfriend. Dismissed in disgrace

      Now, let’s stretch credulity way beyond the breaking point. Imagine that Corbyn’s new home secretary had been forced to resign in disgrace just two years earlier for secret meetings with a foreign government - and that Corbyn knew this, but still appointed her.

        Good post that Nef.

        It's not his four children though, it's mother of four of his children. There are others out there.

        Johnson also took the four bedroom flat and left Javid with the small one despite Javid officially having the larger family.

          And heaven forfend he'd made openly racist statements while visiting Kenya on government business.

            So, his majority is now officially down to one, though that was quite a bit closer than I expected from the polling early in July.

              Haha, my mother does that. She even once wrote a cheque for Mrs TrL in the format "Mrs (my initial) surname" and then got offended when Mrs TrL ripped it up and asked for one with her name on it.

                My mother goes ballistic if someone does that. Occasionally she'll correspond using her maiden name. I suspect she has at least one bank account in that as well.

                  I've lost track of the numerous versions of her name that my mam uses in different contexts. You can reach quite an impressive number if you have a) two languages to play around in b) your first name is a contraction of a longer name, and c) if you are prepared to go by your married name, a hyphenated name, and your maiden name. I wonder what she is up to.

                  Write to her as Mrs Daniel Berbalslug, and you've crossed a line though.

                      My mom never took my dad's name, not that the marriage lasted long anyway. A primary school classmate of mine's mom continued to call her Mrs Dad and I's Last Name rather than Ms Maiden Name, and she viscerally loathes that woman to this day.

                        well if you're looking for a reason to dislike someone, that's as good as any.

                          My mum still uses her married name. My parents divorced in 1984. Her reason was she just couldn't be bothered to change it back.

                            Do we put criticisms of the rest of the cabinet here, or do they get threads of their own?

                                I knew about her former support for the killing of people.


                                And that she's been in collusion with foreign powers?

                                But who else knew about her involvement in "Project Sunshine" for BAT and / or Philip Morris ?

                                An allegedly clandestine operation to smear health campaigners who highlighted the facts about smoking?

                                thinks it's acceptable in public?

                                  Given what we know if the tactics tobacco companies have used down the years, I think I am willing to take it at face value.

                                        https://twitter.com/SebastianEPayne/status/1158078254160502786?s=20

                                        Boris Johnson is ready to face down a challenge from pro-EU MPs who may seek to topple his government this autumn by quietly preparing for a “people versus the politicians” election after the UK has left the EU on October 31, with or without a deal. The British prime minister, who has a working majority of just one in the House of Commons, has consistently said he will not call an election before Brexit. But Downing Street officials are making preparations in the event of losing a confidence vote when parliament returns in September.

                                        If the government falls, senior aides — including Mr Johnson’s most influential adviser, Dominic Cummings — are confident that Brexit cannot be delayed or halted by parliament. Officials believe that MPs manoeuvring to stop a no-deal Brexit — notably the former attorney-general Dominic Grieve — have underestimated the prime minister’s determination to ensure the UK leaves “by any means necessary” at the end of October.

                                        “Someone put Grieve’s idea to Cummings on Friday that if we lose a vote of no confidence the PM will have to resign — he spat his drink out laughing,” said a senior No.10 official. “The idea we will hand over to a new government rather than leave with an election after October 31 is laughable.” Allies of Mr Johnson likened the battle to see Brexit delivered to Vote Leave’s pugilistic style during the 2016 referendum — several individuals from that campaign now serve Mr Johnson.

                                        One government official said that pro-EU MPs, such as Mr Grieve, had already torn up parliamentary rules and they should not be surprised if the government did the same.“I think the Vote Leave people in here will do literally anything to win. Cummings is already planning the Facebook campaign for a ‘people versus the politicians’ election,” the person said. “He’s told this building: if [Jeremy] Corbyn sides with [Dominic] Grieve then he can force an election but the election will destroy the Corbyn project and the Labour party without even stopping Brexit. That’s the choice the Corbyn team have to face shortly.”

                                        Under the terms of the Fixed-terms Parliament Act, MPs would have 14 days to try to form an alternative government after which Mr Johnson would have significant influence on the timing of a poll. He would likely seek to delay it until November, after which the UK would have left the EU under the terms of Article 50. “Dom [Cummings] has made it very clear that even if Remainers tried to push forward a vote of no confidence in September, there is no mechanism to stop us leaving on October 31,” said a Whitehall official

                                        In response Mr Grieve told the BBC “there are a number of things which the House of Commons can do, including bringing down the government and setting up a new government in its place” — a reference to forming a government of national unity with MPs from several parties. Constitutionitial experts, however, have pointed out this would depend on Mr Johnson resigning after losing a confidence vote — something Downing Street insiders insist he will not do.

                                        Catherine Haddon, a senior fellow at the Institute for Government think-tank, said the prime minister would be “perfectly able, constitutionally” to call an election on a date of his choosing after October 31. With a policy of leaving the EU under any circumstances in 88 days, and its working majority almost gone following its loss in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election last week, the Conservative party now has a gossamer-thin grip on power. “We have a single-digit majority and we have to be realistic about the chances that a general election is going to happen. If it does, our absolute intention would be to win it,” said one Conservative party insider. “It’s a pragmatic stance, given what some people have said about supporting the government in any confidence vote.”
                                        Since Mr Johnson entered Downing Street last month, his government has been preparing itself for an election — despite the prime minister’s repeated comments that he will not countenance going to the polls. The pace of work in the new government also points towards an election in the near future. “People are working crazy hours. The government feels like a campaign unit preparing for a general election,” said one official, who added: “This form of government and discipline, run from the centre, is not sustainable.”

Whether that be joining a party or protest group to organise against him; whether it's speaking to those who support him and arguing with them; whether it's arguing online/social media, and/or promoting alternatives; whether it's marching and agitating...do whatever you can.

                                          We've got to fight, not just document, this horror - the latter lets him get away with it. Get active.

                                          So, what are people here doing? For my small part, I'm off to a protest today, am doing my best on social media, and am going to have a friendly debate with my Aunt Janet about why she shouldn't vote for Johnson at the next election (at the moment, she's in the 'at least somebody's getting something done' camp). She might change her ways, as she thinks I should be Prime Minister...

                                          Please, get as active as you can.

                                              I have to say, had I not driven back from Gatwick after a two week holiday in France, watching developments unfold from afar like someone picking up the extra to read about the sinking of the Titanic, I would have been very tempted to go on my first political rally.

                                                This seems huge from over here, and is scary as hell. Fuck democracy, it takes too long. We know exactly where that road leads.

                                                  Good for you. I met a few newbies on the protest today, bumped into an old friend who said 'I don't normally come on demos, the socialist workers usually take over'. They were there today too, but all part of the (much larger), rainbow coalition...

                                                  I got back from two weeks in France late last night. When me and ms johnr caught up - by looking at my tablet in a restaurant - it was suggested by a French couple on the next table that we should forget politics whilst on holiday. We explained that the current situation is frightening, but it's also exciting - this could be the opportunity to get rid of the Tories, if enough of us do what we can.

                                                    I really wanted to be able to go today. Maybe next time.
