Stewart: Government shot itself in the foot by proroguing Parliament


Government sources said a meeting between Boris Johnson and former justice secretary David Gauke planned for tomorrow was cancelled due to ‘diary issues’. The prime minster was due to hold ‘peace talks’ with 21 rebel Tory Remainers such as Mr Gauke (right), who vowed to vote against No Deal despite the threat of deselection by the party at a future general election. A one-on-one meeting with Mr Johnson (left) was also offered to fellow Remainer Philip Hammond (inset). But the former chancellor then cancelled the summit due to the ‘discourteous’ manner the PM shelved the meeting. Mr Johnson gathered his closest aides at Chequers today as he braces for all-out war with Remainers in Parliament this week. The PM, government whips and key officials – including maverick No10 chief Dominic Cummings – holed up for lunch at the country residence.
