First there was the Social Europe journal, and now there’s the Social Europe blog to go with it. The idea is to be able to publish articles about centre left EU politics that are intellectual but not as long or developed as those that go into the journal. I’ve been giving Henning Meyer (the friend of mine who runs the journal) a hand with the technology and development of the new blog – there’s already some interesting discussion about the French elections there.

How opposition parties can engineer a later general election, but get the election called before prorogation of Parliament
If this part of Jo’s thread is right, this is full on crisis territory.
Government loses at Supreme Court, prorogues again - knowing what it’s doing is illegal.
And this drags the Queen in - can she morally sign an Order she knows to be illegal?
But I think - and this is my own speculation - that even if the Government loses and the prorogation is ruled unlawful so that Parliament can go back the Government may just prorogue again.
I think it’s called “we [the EU] have understood that nothing we could give you will pass the Commons. So what do you expect us to do?”
