Boris Johnson loses key Parliament expert just as his fight to deliver Brexit by October 31 approaches

BORIS Johnson is losing his key expert on Parliament just as his titanic struggle over Brexit with MPs comes to a head.

In a blow to the PM, his Director of Legislative Affairs Nikki da Costa is heavily pregnant and just about to go on maternity leave.

Boris will be without his Parliament expert just as he makes a last desperate attempt to try to enforce Britain’s exit from the EU on October 31 — without or without a deal.

Director of Legislative Affairs Nikki da Costa is preparing to go on maternity leave in ‘a few days’

The expert strategist on Commons procedures will have left No10 in “a few days”, a Downing Street source has revealed.

The departure means Boris will be without her just as he makes a last desperate attempt to try to enforce Britain’s exit from the EU on October 31, without or without a deal.

Rebel Tory MPs plan to again ally with Labour and other opposition parties for a showdown vote to insist on at least a three month delay on October 19.

An old Downing Street hand, Ms da Costa also worked for Theresa May in No10 in the same role.

But she was one of two senior advisers blamed for the prorogation disaster last month, when the PM’s advice to the Queen to suspend Parliament for five weeks was deemed an unlawful by the Supreme Court.

A Downing Street source said: “Nikki is very well organised, which means she has meticulous plans already in place for her replacement”.


  1. Good luck to her and her safe delivery. Just normal employment methodology. Stop trying male it because of Boris..

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
