Hell in a Hand-Basket…

As usual, Charlie Stross’s take on the news that Boris Johnson is going to ask the Queen for permission to shut down Parliament for six weeks (for reasons which, according to him, have nothing whatsoever to do with stopping Parliament from stopping him driving through No-Deal Brexit, oh no, not at all) is long and detailed. And very depressing…

To add to the fun and games, the political advisor at Number 10 who has the PM’s ear is Dominic Cummings, who is noted for being both an Accelerationist and a closet singularitarian (he keeps the latter out of the public eye but it’s on his blog). He can thus best be approximated to an ultra-capitalist rapture-of-the-nerds embracing Trotskyite, merrily intent on pouring gasoline on the bonfire of British constitutional traditions.

We are so screwed if this isn’t stopped…
