Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The chancellor, Sajid Javid, was not informed in advance
about the sacking of one of his senior advisers by Boris Johnson's strategist Dominic Cummings, it has emerged.

Sonia Khan, Javid's media adviser, was escorted from No 10 by a police officer after being accused of misleading Cummings over her contact with individuals close to the former chancellor Philip Hammond, who has been trying to block a no-deal Brexit.

Downing Street rebuffed speculation that she had leaked the government's no-deal planning report, Operation Yellowhammer, to the press.

Khan was the second adviser working for Javid to be sacked by No 10, leading to suggestions that Javid is becoming increasingly isolated from the core of the Johnson regime.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
