#HEAT­WAVE

The UK con­tin­ues to bask in warm tem­per­a­tures, even if the sun re­mains hid­den by a layer of cloud in most of Scot­land. @emi­lyproc­tor com­mented: “For any­one who’s out­side of the UK and is call­ing us weak for not be­ing able to cope at 35 de­grees, re­mem­ber, we melt at 17” @oth­ro­po­dreg said: “I’m not say­ing my work is hot but a hob­bit just came in and threw a ring into the dust­bin” @jwilliams_julie of­fered: ‘When you’re look­ing at the 10-day fore­cast pray­ing for it to show a bit of rain’ @reemwalid_02 ob­served: “Aus­tralians mak­ing fun of us prob­a­bly for­get that our air con­di­tion­ing is a small fan in the liv­ing room. And we are dy­ing”

#BREXIT

Brexit Sec­re­tary David Davis is en­ter­ing ne­go­ti­a­tions on the UK’S exit from the EU in a “pos­i­tive and con­struc­tive” frame of mind. @dr­do­minichinde said: “Happy Brexit Day. The next two years are go­ing to be wild.” @sti­ga­bell com­mented: “You know things are tough at the mo­ment when news items about Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions feel like a bit of ‘and fi­nally’ light re­lief ” @Ru­pert­my­ers ob­served: “Any­one who has ever blagged their way through an exam by pulling an all­nighter will know how the Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tion team will feel tonight” @That­timwalker said: “I may have this com­pletely wrong – and may be des­per­ately out of touch – but my sense is the Bri­tish pub­lic are now sick to death of Brexit”

#DUP

Talks be­tween the Tories and Demo­cratic Union­ist Party are con­tin­u­ing, mean­ing Theresa May’s govern­ment still does not have a ma­jor­ity al­most two weeks af­ter the gen­eral elec­tion. @Profchalmers said: “March 4, 2019: Mar­kets re­act pos­i­tively as David Davis an­nounces an un­ex­pect­edly early Brexit deal. TORY-DUP talks con­tinue” @camp­bell­claret said: “If it takes the govern­ment this long to reach an agree­ment with 10 like-minded DUP MPS, I am not hold­ing out much hope on Brexit in two years” @Pol­homeed­i­tor said: “Down­ing Street says de­tails of any Dup/con­ser­va­tive deal will be pub­lished ‘if and when’ agreed. So pos­si­bil­ity it might not hap­pen?”
