According to the flight tracking website, Flightradar24, over 22,000 people are using their site to watch the International Development Secretary Priti Patel fly home.

The disgraced minister was on her way to Uganda for an official visit (not one of her fun, Israeli official-packed holidays this time) when she had to just turn straight back around and get a flight home from Kenya this morning. It is thought she’s about to be sacked for misleading No 10 and having undisclosed meetings with senior Israeli figures.

This mole would love to see the state of Patel’s mobile when she lands. It has a feeling it won’t just be a text from Vodafone and a chummy “have you landed?” WhatsApp from a loved one.

I'm a mole, innit.
