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 What's actually happening in the UK? How does one simply turn off a representative democracy? Is he like a dictator now and how is any of that legally possible?
@trash it’s legal because in the UK, “asking the Queen to do it” basically trumps everything else. It’s ridiculous in this century.
