(The newer followers, DExEU held meetings in Starbucks on Victoria Street before it had office space, a fact furiously denied at the time by their press officer.)

Suddenly, the Starbucks on Victoria Street emptied. "Were are you all going?" asked the one remaining, a newly appointed cabinet minister. "Come back."

I *knew* there would be one who would respond like that! I know that, hence the intended irony of my tweet.

Always the last resort. I remember Thatcher's government trying that with the Poll Tax Bill in the late 1980s.

You should take you annoyance out on, well, your leader and former leader. Not a commentator who points out that the absence of both indicates a stark lack of seriousness about their professed aim of opposing Brexit. Shoot not the messenger.

Note to Brexiters indulging in spectacular Whataboutery on Vote Leave/electoral commission: you either believe in the rule of law and its application to democratic processes... or you don't.

Every day that passes makes David Cameron's recklessness -with both calling the referendum and his political promise that a Leave vote would be implemented as soon as possible - more stark. Most politically irresponsible acts of any UK politician. May is a footnote to this.

Theresa May is a bad prime minister, beyond dispute. But David Cameron, risking UK's future on a throw of pitch and toss, and setting up an advisory referendum but politicising it as mandatory, makes him the worst prime minister of all. For when he lost, all of this followed.

The Lib Dems, the self-proclaimed "Stop Brexit" party, has stopped stopping Brexit.
