This weekend, an unnamed “senior plotter” against Theresa May advised her to “bring her own noose” to the imminent gathering of MPs at which she will plead for her life. As for Johnny “S*** Show” Mercer, the dashing ex-commando reflects on the febrile public mood: “Any disagreement is met by howls of personal abuse.

    EU's Barnier plays down 'backstop' checks on Northern Irish trade

    The EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier stood firm on the need for checks on goods shipped from mainland Britain to Northern Ireland after Brexit, while insisting this would not amount to a new border, in an interview published on Sunday. Negotiations on Britain's departure from the European Union are stalled on several issues, but primarily an Irish 'backstop' both sides agree is needed to avoid a hard border between the UK province of Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, an EU state.

    Ireland blasphemy referendum: Country to vote on removing the offence from country’s constitution

    On 26 October, voters in Ireland will go to the polls to decide on whether blasphemy should be removed as an offence from the country’s constitution. The law on blasphemy is generally seen as outdated, and while this is not as contentious a social issue as others like same sex marriage and abortion, a referendum is still required to alter the constitution. The referendum will take place on the same day as the country’s presidential election, in which the incumbent Michael D Higgins is expected to be re-elected.

    Bohemian Rhapsody: How the new Queen biopic nearly didn't happen

    Bohemian Rhapsody, the new biopic of Queen centring on the band’s flamboyant frontman Freddie Mercury, finally arrives in UK cinemas on 24 October. Finally reaching us with Mr Robot star Rami Malek as Mercury, the film faces the difficult challenge of satisfying the group’s devoted fans, without alienating the novice, while simultaneously capturing the essence of one of the most charismatic and entertaining performers in pop. Stand-up comedian John Robins, a Queen superfan to the point of mania, is precisely the sort of Freddie diehard the project has set itself the near-impossible task of pleasing.

    The Guardian view on taming technology: it’s out of control

    There is an awful symmetry in Sir Nick’s move from British politics to Facebook. Facebook too has a long record of cheap rhetoric about democracy and bringing people together – alongside a record of acting as a tool for destabilising democracies and in some cases for the encouragement of genocide in Myanmar or the organisation of mob violence through its WhatsApp subsidiary in Sri Lanka. Facebook, just like the Liberal Democrats, is now trying to restore its tattered image with the general public.

    'End is in sight for a good deal on Brexit', says Dominic Raab

    The UK is open to extending the Brexit transition period in a bid to break the impasse in the negotiations. Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said the government would consider such a step, provided it would "solve" the Irish backstop issue and there was "route out" so it did not go on indefinitely. The issue of how to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic in the event that a deal on Britain's future relationship takes longer than expected has been the source of much contention between both sides.
