Sajid Javid resigns at 18.02 Rishi Sunak resigns at 18.11 Surely not a coincidence

Boris Johnson of the opposition: There’s a very simple reason that they want me out - they know that otherwise we are going to get on and deliver our mandate and win another general election #pmqs 

I’ve written my first column for @theipaper  on the rolling back of abortion rights & what it could mean for the UK… There’s been a lot of focus on Roe v Wade but it’s also worth looking at what’s happening in Poland

Andrew Murrison tells @SamCoatesSky  the 1922 committee executive when it meets later today “will probably decide that it’s necessary to change the rules” to allow another confidence vote in the PM - “this is the end game now”

Has the PM actually resigned? Genuine Q… “It is now clearly the will of the parliamentary conservative party that there should be a new leader of that party and therefore a new Prime Minister and I have agreed…the process of choosing that new leader should begin now”

The Tory leadership race is writing Keir Starmer's attack lines - Does the PM agree with his former Chancellor that the plans put forward by his rivals are "nothing more than the fantasy economics of unfunded spending promises?" #pmqs 

Another Bluey convert - @hugorifkind  - it’s the best 👏🙏 “One episode from series two — Sleepytime — has a user-generated 9.9 rating on the website IMDb, making it unbeaten by any episode of any television ever, save for Ozymandias Breaking Bad

Picture has worsened for the Conservatives throughout the day. Currently at a net loss of 384 seats across England, Scotland & Wales

Lord Heseltine says he will vote against the Conservative Party for the first time because it is "forcing through the biggest act of economic self-harm ever undertaken by a democratic government” - he'll vote Lib Dem in the European elections

Staff had to create a “puppy gate” using two chairs against a door to keep Boris Johnson in his study while isolating, according to @Steven_Swinford  @hzeffman  @oliver_wright  in the Times

Whoops. Home Office announces a new English language test for migrants.... and spells language wrong

“The advice says you should apply for asylum when you arrive in the UK, but it also says your claim effectively won’t be considered if you travelled to the UK through a safe third country. It’s basically impossible to claim asylum legally then, isn’t it?”

Blimey. Sajid Javid says the changes he was asked to accept in the reshuffle would not have been in the national interest & a Chancellor needs to be able to speak truth to power ?

?We’re taking a very unusual step to try and get answers to our questions about Dominic Cummings...

I am genuinely baffled that asking the Prime Minister about comments by the US President on sexually assaulting women is seen as a "stunt"
