Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Boris Johnson has been told to `obey the law' over Brexit in an extraordinary warning issued by his own justice secretary.

Robert Buckland scotched speculation that he would follow Amber Rudd by resigning, despite ministers preparing to legally challenge parliament's instruction to stop a crash-out from the EU.

But he also revealed his concerns about the prime minister, by tweeting: "We have spoken over the past 24 hours regarding the importance of the Rule of Law, which I as Lord Chancellor have taken an oath to uphold."

The pro-EU justice secretary is one of four cabinet ministers on `resignation watch', as No 10 ratchets up the rhetoric in a Brexit showdown heading for the courts.

Buckland is also, as Lord Chancellor, an important player in the Royal Commission that should automatically give royal assent to the anti-no-deal Bill tomorrow.

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