Honestly can you imagine literally any other circumstances where a future PM could say “yeah might shut down parliament till I get what I want” and half the population thinks “yeah ok seems fine”. We’ve lost our fucking minds.

An observation: Salvini, who tweets pretty much every time a migrant gets found with a pen knife, has had very little to say about far-right activists arrested with a frigging missile and an arsenal of weapons

Quoted @tompeck

Now @BorisJohnson is genuinely saying that we, the UK, "can use the leverage of a trade deal to get the USA to raise their own standards (on animal welfare)." Yes that's definitely going to happen isn't it. The US farming industry will bend to our whim. Utter garbage. As always

Good Lord. Three years of nonsense claiming that the EU would do anything we tell it to, now moving on to claim that the *USA* will do anything we tell it to. Party like it's 1775!

Police raids in Italy have unearthed a huge Far Right cache of weaponry, including an ground-to-air missile. (via @itvnews)

Remember when the far right acted like we were contravening the Geneva Convention for splashing racists with Yazoo

Now @BorisJohnson says we should our "leverage" with the US to encourage them to raise their agricultural standards, saying we wont accept chlorine-washed chickens #FinalShowdown

Good luck with that. The EU and US have been arguing about his for 20 years.

Bored of videos showing scientists bloodfeeding mosquitoes on their arms? Here's a great thread on how #leeches are fed on "blood sausage" in the lab. Fascinating - but think I'll stick to #mosquitoes

A d..n close run thing, we clearly don't need Europe to win... #CricketWorldCupFinal https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/48983890 …

Imagine having so few arguments left in favour of your shitty project that you have to claim a cricket match won by a team full of immigrants (led by an Irish captain) is somehow proof that we don’t need Europe.

Quoted @RogerHelmerMEP

Prof Paul Nurse is saying that scientists see Brexit as “turning our backs not just on Europe, but on the world”. He fears loss of funding and of visiting experts. He is exactly and diametrically wrong. As my old Mother used to say, “You intelligent people have no Common Sense”.

The future of UK science, as seen by Helmer.

Quoted @giles_fraser

We need someone with the temperament to drive full speed towards No Deal without any thought of using the break. The person most suited to this is Boris.

Food prices will rise, manufacturing workers will lose their jobs, the sick will lose access to medicines, there will be a recession and a massive hit to public finances and public services will suffer. You're not a socialist, Giles, and nor are you a man of God.

It's finally out! An updated review article -- "Interferon-Stimulated Genes: What Do They All Do?" A veritable tome on all things ISGs+virus. Topics covered: What is an ISG? How many ISGs are there? How are antiviral ISGs identified? What do ISGs do?

'...you go instead to Dublin and you literally do a deal with the Irish, whether you bribe them or threaten them one way or the other to get them into position where they're the ones who drop the opposition to the backstop.' Good lord. @MirrorAlison's reaction says it all.

It is the year 2469. Brexiteers still don’t understand the basics of how the EU works.

So poliovirus type 2 has re-established itself?
