Exposing that potential UK-Saudi prisons contract was the last big law and policy thing I did in those heady halcyon days before Brexit. Would love to get back to "normal" law and policy stuff again one day.

Those with longer memories will recall Daniel Kawczynski's upset when I exposed the UK-Saudi prison contract...

I don't even follow some of those on Twitter let alone endorse their actions.

In your rush to type block capitals, you missed the word "potential" and declared yourself an idiot.

"formally" Perhaps he used the headed paper of the UK parliament in a letter to a foreign government inviting that government to frustrate the potential will of the UK government. Yes, that would be "formal".

One of the most extraordinary things ever said by a UK MP. An explicit request for a foreign government to intervene so as to frustrate a potential UK government policy.

With our Prime Minister in name only, we appear to have parliamentary government in manner not seen since before 1867. Half-expecting Lord John Russell to suddenly become caretaker PM at any moment.

Future history essay question: "Which Prime Minister left the greater mess to their successor: Cameron or May?"

Leadership is about leadership. Nobody can support a party, whatever it policies, until it is being led.

The Brexit messaging from the Commission is becoming increasingly blunt.

Difficult to think of a more irresponsible attitude to our constitution. May has been a bad prime minister, but Cameron's folly was more fundamental. He casually created the situation where no government, or even parliament, could function well.
