I’m told Dominic Cummings opposed the appointment of Andrew Bailey as Governor of the Bank of England. Outmaneuvered by Javid – adding to the reasons he wanted the Chancellor reined in

Some chatter from inside the Treasury: one of the reasons Dominic Cummings was angry with Sajid Javid was the Bank of England governor. Cummings wanted Andy Haldane as the candidate most attuned to „levelling up“ but Javid managed to secure it for Andrew Bailey. #reshuffle

Sajid Javid quits as No. 10 takes control

Sunak has long been seen as a rising star and is the person in the Treasury who No. 10 preferred to deal with. Sunak will be helped by the new No. 10/No. 11 special adviser unit. Sunak is a Brexiteer who has good relations both with the Prime Minister and his team. One insider suggests that their relationship will be a friendly one similar to that of David Cameron and George Osborne. What’s clear is that today’s changes mean No. 10 has taken control.

Boris Johnson will guarantee his £34billion NHS spending pledge by putting it into law next week

Boris Johnson MP: We are leaving the European Union on 31st October – come what may

The United Kingdom can reclaim its natural and historic role as an enterprising, outward-looking and truly global country. But first we must restore trust in our precious democracy by leaving the EU on the 31st October, writes Boris Johnson

I passionately believe that I can strike an EU deal within weeks

Let us be in no doubt as to what has really happened in Parliament in the last couple of weeks. Let there be no ambiguity about the underlying motive. A large number of MPs – though by no means all – are simply trying to crush Brexit. In spite of all that they promised – and voted for – they just want to stop this country from ever leaving the European Union.

TREVOR KAVANAGH: My money’s still on the incredible Bulk Boris Johnson to deliver Brexit

Voters won’t accept a rehashed version of Theresa May’s botched deal as reward for three years of political agony.

Not once they realise Brussels has won hands down, while we’ve surrendered all power over its relentless march to a federal superstate.

It certainly won’t entice them to vote Tory next time rather than for a resurgent Brexit Party.

Johnson threatens election to stop rebels from blocking no-deal Brexit

In a statement delivered outside Downing Street, Johnson said he would not ask Brussels for an extension to the Brexit process, even if Parliament forces him to.
Urging lawmakers to reject a proposal to take no-deal off the table, Johnson made it clear that he would prefer an election over another „pointless“ Brexit delay. „I don’t want an election, you don’t want an election,“ Johnson said — with the unsaid implication that a new vote would be the only alternative.

Election Speculation Summary

– The PM has convened a last-minute cabinet meeting for 5 pm, with the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg saying Boris will discuss calling an election this week
– This is well-timed to be followed by a previously-arranged garden party with all Tory MPs. Great way to get all his MPs in one place for any announcements…
– No. 10 have publicly said they are treating tomorrow’s Remainer plot to take over the House of Commons Order Paper as an implicit vote of confidence in the Government’s negotiation strategy – many are reading into this as a vote of confidence in the government as a whole.
– In the event of a government defeat on Tuesday or Wednesday, Boris would seek an election.

Think Boris Johnson breaks the mold? Wait until you meet his girlfriend

Downing Street told CNN it did not know whether Symonds would move in to the famous residence.
These are uncharted waters for the British establishment — never in living memory has a UK Prime Minister had an unmarried partner while in office. Unlike US first ladies, UK first partners have no strictly defined role, and it will largely be up to Symonds to shape it.
