Jonathan Powell was a British diplomat who went on to become Tony Blair's Chief of Staff throughout his entire time in Downing Street. He has tweeted this:

He clearly thinks there is a coup going on here in the UK, right now. And I have to say that I tend to agree.

The aim is to concentrate power in  Number 10 with no checks and balances to hold it to account.

This is profoundly dangerous for our democracy.

It's also profoundly dangerous for the stability of our society.
