Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In a devastating resignation letter, she accused the prime minister of "an assault on decency and democracy" and "an act of political vandalism" for sacking 21 of her Tory colleagues for backing a parliamentary bill to stop a no-deal Brexit.

Rudd told Johnson she had joined his cabinet "in good faith accepting that no deal had to be on the table". She added: "However, I no longer believe leaving with a deal is the government's main objective."

While she could see the government was "expending a lot of energy" preparing for no deal, she had not seen "the same level of intensity go into our talks with the European Union" and updates from his office had "not, regretfully, provided me with the reassurances I sought".

Pfeffle of Pfeff Hall will soon drive into a horsepond. His talk of defying the law is just more bluster. No amount of posing with a bull and trying to make Churchillian grimaces will cut it.

The real question is what happens when he resigns?

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
