Ouch…that’s gonna sting. Where does the Murdoch-owned New York Post put the Donald Trump ‘I’m running’ announcement? #FloridaMan  (See bottom of page for answer)

@PennyMordaunt  makes the classic West Wing mistake of repeating the question asked of her. So when @stellacreasy  asks is the PM hiding under a desk, Penny Mordaunt says out loud Liz Truss isn't hiding under a desk.....

Why did @Peston  think that having the script line ‘Jeremy Hunt’s cuts’ would end well?

And hard to believe that history will be any kinder….

Am sure more plot twists and psycho drama to come - it’s the Tory party after all - but feels this morning we are heading towards the coronation of King Rishi

After tumultuous week, worth reflecting: In the 37 years from 1979 to 2016 there were just 5 prime ministers. In the 6 years since 2016 we’ve also had 5 PMs Something pretty destabilising must have happened that year

Well knock me down with a feather. Who would have guessed that Steve Bannon would think a Lula victory must equal a stolen election. I mean it’s not like we’ve been here before🙄

Waspish line from @AngelaRayner  - 'Liz Truss has finally broken her long painful silence with a series of short painful silences.'

Incredibly damning. This isn’t some Labour hack..this is Peter bloody Hennessy, our foremost constitutional scholar and man who understands Whitehall’s workings as well as anyone

For 4 years when I was US Editor I went to endless Trump rallies where we’d be accused of being ‘enemies of the people’ - the ‘we’ were the media, but also ‘liberals’, civil servants, environmentalists, the swamp, the think tanks. All felt a bit familiar in B’ham today

Hang on - so we’ve taken back control of our borders cos we no longer want to be part of the EU, but Grant Shapps still expects the French to let us come and go as we please across their border. Have I got that right? As they say somewhere, quel culot ce mec

A cabinet minister until a few weeks ago has just told me @trussliz  ‘has unleashed hell on this country.’ The language being used by senior Conservatives, the incredulity, the cold fury is like nothing I’ve seen in decades of covering UK politics

Umm. Have you missed top line? Am sure @maitlis  had something to say about relationship between BBC and Conservative Party….
