“This is a very bad result for the prime minister, 117 votes against her… much worse than she thought” says Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, who insists the result is worse that it looks as an ”overwhelming majority of backbenchers have voted against her”

Here is Boris Johnson writing about the predicament he finds himself in, and why he still can’t bring himself to resign.

It’s surprisingly honest and insightful. Possibly because he wrote it in 2006, about Tony Blair.

I’m sorry to have to resign as the PM’s Anti-Corruption Tsar but, after his reply last week about the Ministerial Code, it’s pretty clear he has broken it. That’s a resigning matter for me, and it should be for the PM too. Here’s my letter to him explaining why.

Jacob Rees-Mogg crowdsourced Brexit opportunities from the public.

From that brown firehose of over 2,000 nonsensical suggestions plus his own efforts, he drew up this absurd list of the top 9 opportunities.

No, we really did leave the EU for this.🤦‍♂️

Everythinggoing on right now and Johnson and co pick out imperial measurements to focus on, yet another popularist stunt. He's meant to be running a country not a carnival sideshow 'Roll up, Roll up! See the amazing imperial measurements, you're paying for it, like it or not'

I realise I should be at an advantage on this, but can someone here explain how imperial measurements actually work? They remain a mystery. Thank you sincerely, from everyone under 50.

As a patron of UK Metric Association I've just been on BBC News arguing against the jingoistic, populist plans by the Gov to bring back Imperial measures. Celebrating the Jubilee should be an opportunity to showcase Britain as a progressive and advanced nation, not one stuck in the past.

More than 30,000 TUI passengers will have their Manchester Airport flights cancelled in messages and emails by the end of today. I have tried to get a list of all flights affected but TUI have declined to share one. Will keep trying. manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-m…

After Science and Technology Committee were told “Physics is not something that girls tend to fancy”, Dr Jess Wade 👩🏻‍🔬💉💉💉, Dr Izzy Jayasinghe, Prof. Christina Pagel 🇺🇦, Angela Saini & I wrote to the committee with an evidence-based counterpoint. Our letter has now been published as part of the inquiry: committees.parliament.uk/writtenevidenc…

If you were in any doubt about the idea that girls avoid physics because they “don’t like hard maths” you should read this exceptional response.
