“Stop the coup” cries drown out Boris Johnson’s speech

Description

Reporters in the UK scrabble to keep up with the volatile situation in Westminster, while on social media, voters urge rebel Conservative MPs to #CrossTheFloor. The arrival of a new puppy at 10 Downing Street exasperates some Brits who say it’s too trivial to report on.

The general strike has also been taken up by medics who are lending their support to the anti-Beijing demos.
