1. Like many others, I'm sure,

I'm watching the re-opening of Parliament live (the joys of being self-employed and working from home) - it may end up being the most-watched session for quite a while.

Attorney General Cox must be the most arrogant patrician twat I've ever had the misfortune to hear speak. Given the scurrilous smacktalk about the verdict and the judges that's been leaked from the sore-loser Cabinet yesterday and overnight, a little more contrition might be in order.

Johnson won't be taking PMQs today, but is scheduled to make a statement later - fresh off the red-eye from New York, so that's something to look forward to, I guess.

14. She's pretty cool, it's true.

Just after I posted that, I heard a clear and strident Melchettesque "BEHHHH" from somebody else in the House among the babble. Maybe they've been cloned? Maybe they're reading this thread??

3. I don't see them stave off a catastrophe. The whole of brexit is F.U.B.A.R. in fubar's

truest meaning.

17. Congratulations from America to our British Allies

Authoritarianism has been nipped in the bud once more. While our country only rebelled against one British leader who severely overreached, that was more than enough for us. Always glad to see whenever you folks also make quick work of wannabe tyrants.

19. Well, we're far from out of the woods yet,

but thanks very much for your solidarity. Be assured that we're rooting for you, with your own leadership and constitutional problems.

20. Lord North (Prime Minister during the American Revolution)...

...Was widely regarded as the worst Prime Minister of all time.

That was until Theresa May came along. And now we have Boris Johnson who is far, far worse!

21. As an Anglophile Yank, I also want to add my congratulations

I was very heartened to see your Supreme Court issue that unanimous judgment instead of a 6-5 verdict (if that's possible). I think it will now be possible to stop Brexit, or at the very minimum have one that is not quite as disastrous as a crash-out Brexit.

Congrats and keep the faith, from across the waves

Steve
