This morning, Boris Johnson has switched off the UK’s representative democracy because he doesn’t like what it tells him. And he’s going to ignore the law over a no-deal Brexit. I thought Brexit had already destroyed our standing in the world; turns out we can go lower. #StopTheCoup
@Floppy The queen legit "turned off" democracy? And let some guy become dictator?
@trash for the next 5 week, there is no democratic control over the UK government, because they’re playing the system. It’s close enough to dictatorship for me. We should do better.
