All UK opposition leaders have written to PM to demand Brexit legal advice is published.

The shape of things to come?

This afternoon the government (ministers) have been found in contempt of parliament for not publishing the full legal advice on the Brexit deal.

Two Tories & the DUP voted against the government. This doesn't bode well for Theresa May's Brexit plan.

@fitheach what an amazing amount of brass neck though! Telling Parliament that for the public good, the full legal advice could not be revealed to the body that is responsible for making the final decision.

I'm still hoping you'll have to use that amazing mustard recipe of yours to make your hat more palatable ;)

Quite, quite extraordinary situation. A government (although technically the ministers collectively, I think) has been found in contempt of parliament. This has never happened before. What a time to be alive.

You're right about the brass neck, though I blame the fourth estate for not holding ministers to account on a regular basis.

I should think a hat would be best done in a slow oven and mustard might be a good accompaniment. I won't be putting that recipe to the test, I'm sure. 🎩
