>> >> P. S.The hardcore Tory voters are very pissed off with this turn of events — both with the Parliament seizing control of Brexit and the fact that Rees Mogg and Johnson are buckling under pressure and want to vote for May's deal now to save Brexit in principle. DUP (Irish Unionists) said they wouldn't vote for it unless the backstop arrangements are changed. But they might abstain. Anyways, the Telegraph is full of hateful messages from the Tory voters — like this

>> Woke up this morning — it all changed again. Duncan Smith, Mogg and Johnson changed their minds again and will not support May's deal, cause DUP are not going to abstain, but vote against it, so there are not enough votes for it to go through anyway. But they feel quite pleased with themselves and smug — as they managed to plunge the knife into May's back — she announced her resignation last night. quoted2
No, what those posts were about was the fact that Rees Mogg and some other Brexiteers were prepared to support May's deal for the third time — cause they were scared of Brexit being cancelled altogether. But when it became clear that DUP (the Irish unionists) will not cave in and support it due to the dreaded backstop arrangement (even though May allegedly offered more money for Northern Ireland to get them to support the deal which effectively would separate them from the UK indefinitely or the whole of the UK would be trapped in the Customs Union with the EU indefinitely. So as you can see — the Irish unionists are probably the most decent of the lot. They stood strong), then they turned again and decided not to support it. The criticism was for the Brexiteers when Rees Mogg briefly announced they would support the deal. He later said that he knew it wouldn't go through the Commons anyway. It is just. well, you know, it is a bit slimy if you know what I mean.
In any case, there is a huge backlash going on about Brexit being delayed. On the 29th of March on Friday (we were out of London then — went to the countryside in Kent — me and my husband), but tens of thousands of Brexiteers went to protest against Brexit being delayed. Amongst them were the Nazis like Tommy Robinson and Nick Griffin. Tommy Robinson is now in UKIP, which is why Farage left UKIP and organised his own Brexit Party, he intends to fight European Election with them and a lot of hard Brexiteer Tories are defecting to his Party right now. Cause they feel betrayed over the fact that we didn't just leave on the 29th of March. Deal or No Deal. They do have a point, as — effectively — the law of the land was broken. Leaving on the 29th is enrolled into Statute by Parliament (it was done in 2017) and stamped and approved by the Queen. All the extensions that May is asking for from the EU are not part of the law in this country, it is shambles as far is the law is concerned. It is effectively — illegal.
Also — Tory Europhile Dominic Grieve — who proposed the amendments re second referendum, etc. — was given the vote of no Confidence by his constituents (people who elected him for an MP), as his constituents voted to leave. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/03/30/...
It is all just the beginning of the backlash. The MPs are getting attacked outside Parliament and are advised to use black cabs and to stay away from public transport. It is crazy to be honest. The traffic in London on Friday was paralysed.
>> Devolved means — it is on its own, separate from the Government, but it can also mean «going backwards» (as opposed to «evolved», «evolution» — play on words, and as they are all fighting amongst each other over Brexit (each with their own agenda like chimpanzees) and can't come up with any solution -it is quite funny cause he portrays them as chimpanzees (going backwards quoted2
>I heard Mays is going to resign. Who will become her successor — Rees Mogg or Tory will have to «step down»? quoted1
Rees Mogg doesn't want the job, he endorsed Boris Johnson for PM.
To be honest, it doesn't matter necessarily who takes on the job of the PM as such, what matters in the Tory Party is what camp is stronger and more disciplined — in terms of voting for a certain agenda in the Commons. The ERG (Mogg's group) is very disciplined in that sense — they don't switch, they are very hardline Brexiteers and always vote for a hardline Brexit agenda.
I hate spiders to be honest, but my son Alex held a tarantula one day in his hand at a classmate's 7th birthday party — it was an animal party, there is a company here called Animal zoo, they bring small animals to your home for birthday parties. Now he has no fear of spiders at all. I will see if I find a pic. Looking at him, even the girls sitting around want to hold a spider (Alex has always been very popular with girls in his class, cause he is a very handsome kid )
Here is the company that does it, Vicky was also invited to that party (she tries to go to all the parties where Alex goes, she is the one in the monkey suit, she was 5 back then, she got to hold a poisonous frog, I have a video of it somewhere, but can't find it now)
Sorry I am talking about the kids so much, it is Mother's Day tomorrow here and when we came home from Kent tonight, my daughter already left me a prezzie — she couldn't wait till tomorrow (my kids are with my parents right now, they are bringing them back tomorrow morning), she left her present for me already. The biscuits she decorated at school and a cute Unicorn with «I believe in you» written on it, she told me on the phone an hour ago that the Unicorn is me, cause I always believe in her, which I do of course.
If you press the Unicorn's ear, it lights up and makes noises
My boys are not as impatient and saving all their Mother's Day surprises for tomorrow.
Thank you, you are such a sweetie. I am awake already waiting for my parents to bring the kids home. We are going to Richmond Park, Jon booked horse riding — we are gonna all ride horses — we can all ride, apart from Daniel, he is scared of horses, but he will go on the horse with his Dad.

Thank you. I got to go too, this is gonna be a wonderful day, and it is sunny!!!!
We are back now, Richmond park was great, didn't get to take any pics as we were on horses, but I will post the pic of the flowers I got from my boys, they also made hand made cards — but it is too personal to post those, cause there is a play on words there in Alex's card on our surname, etc.
