This is especially the case given the documented cases of Twitter 2.0 changing or ignoring the rules to suit Elon or someone in the favoured circle.

Me, the newly-educated tenant: “Oh yes! Trickle-down will work this time, even though it’s never worked before! What a fool I was! Thanks, Turning Point USA!”
A last thought (for tonight) on the prospective reshuffle: it makes it look even worse if Raab is kept in post through the reshuffle only to be sacked shortly afterwards, if that happened.
Obviously the US, China (and others) frequently hack, get satellite intelligence, intercept comms, and keep spies in each other’s countries. Those are lesser violations than border incursions, but when they’re public, they always require action too.
Still amazed that Number 10 really tried to say with a straight face that it was essential for Boris Johnson to have “firsthand” experience of flying a typhoon, but not essential for him to attend COBRA meetings. Jesus wept.

If I were advising Keir Starmer I’d suggest he comes out publicly and says something on the lines of: “If I’m issued with a fixed penalty notice I will, of course, resign. It would be completely wrong to appeal to lead the country having broken the law, even accidentally.”
