How much would you like to hear John Bolton testify? This is pretty explosive 🧨 via @nytimes 

Royal wheels 24 hours apart, and a continent apart #rickshawroyals  #StateOpening 

My report tonight on situation in Syria, and attempts by US to bring pressure on #Turkey 

Striking on Turkey from @realDonaldTrump  - not a word of condemnation for #Erdogan  and says “what does this have to do with us?”

Oh my. What a day. Top Democrats have just walked out of @WhiteHouse  meeting with @realDonaldTrump  after he slams @NancyPelosi  as ‘a third rate politician’. ‘A nasty diatribe’ says @SenSchumerA  ‘meltdown’ says @NancyPelosi 

Maitlis, you flatter yourself. TBH I think you are more in a 69 with a Short History of Europe

Acting @WhiteHouse  Chief of Staff holds his first briefing room news conf to announce that venue for 2020 #G7  summit will be - wait for it - the Trump Doral in Miami. Who’d have thought? Mulvaney insisting there is no conflict of interest

Wow. #Erdogan  tells news conference the letter sent by @realDonaldTrump  telling him not to be a ‘tough guy’ wasn’t in line with diplomatic or political customs. He said they wouldn’t forget the lack of respect. “When the time comes necessary steps will be taken”

Addendum: and guess who is going to Sochi next Tuesday at the invitation of Vladimir Putin? Yep - President#Erdogan  - to discuss #Syria  #Kurds

I've known @campbellclaret  for 25 years. A more tribal, Labour to his finger-tips person you would struggle to find, yet expelled from @UKLabour  with lightning speed brutality. But anti-Semites? Hard to avoid conclusion Labour is making deliberate choices...

Racking my brain to think where Downing St got the idea to have @BorisJohnson ⁩ making political points against backdrop of non political police cadets

Bizarre. says he came to Turnberry the day before Brexit and he told everyone that he thought Brexit would happen. And that he predicted correctly what would happen the next day. Umm. Not true. He came the day after Brexit. I was there. June 24

Says multi millionaire and patriot who moved abroad to avoid paying UK taxes in 1970s.....

My bosses have approved a new business card for me: Jon Sopel Another Beauty North America Editor

Killer line from a tearful @nsoamesmp  in the Commons, thanking "my right honourable friend the PM [Johnson], the Leader of the House [Rees-Mogg] and other members of the Cabinet whose serial disloyalty has been such an inspiration to so many of us." Ouch

I can’t believe I’m hearing this again. DONALD TRUMP DID NOT PREDICT BREXIT THE DAY BEFORE VOTE AT TURNBERRY. HE ARRIVED IN SCOTLAND THE DAY AFTER, ON JUNE 24. HIS TWEETS CONFIRM THIS. I WAS THERE Did someone say #FakeNews  ?

To the French woman on night of semi final we met in a Valbonne restaurant who said she couldn’t support France cos there were too many black players in the side, I hope you are inconsolably miserable. Well done #France  #FRACRO
