British Prime Minister Theresa May warned members of Parliament that voting down her Brexit deal this week would be "a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy" in an op-ed for the Sunday Express.

The big picture: May's deal, which faces a lack of support from both the opposition Labour Party as well as pro-Brexit members of her own Conservative Party, is largely expected to fail in a vote on Tuesday — more than one month after she delayed a vote under similar circumstances. The European Union is expecting her deal to fail and the current planned Brexit date of March 29 to be delayed until at least July, The Guardian reports. And Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has promised to table a motion of no confidence in May's government should that occur, which could oust her as prime minister and force a snap election.

Facebook boycott organizers share details on their Zuckerberg meeting

Facebook is in the midst of the largest ad boycott in its history, with nearly 1,000 brands having stopped paid advertising in July because they feel Facebook hasn't done enough to remove hate speech from its namesake app and Instagram.

Axios Re:Cap spoke with the boycott's four main organizers, who met on Tuesday with CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other top Facebook executives, to learn why they organized the boycott, what they took from the meeting, and what comes next.

Civil rights leaders blasted Facebook's top executives shortly after speaking with them on Tuesday, saying that the tech giant's leaders "failed to meet the moment" and were "more interested in having a dialogue than producing outcomes."

Why it matters: The likely fallout from the meeting is that the growing boycott of Facebook's advertising platform, which has reached nearly 1000 companies in less than a month, will extend longer than previously anticipated, deepening Facebook's public relations nightmare.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise’s PAC is inviting lobbyists to attend a four-day “Summer Meeting” at Disney World's Polynesian Village in Florida, all but daring donors to swallow their concern about coronavirus and contribute $10,000 to his leadership PAC.

Why it matters: Scalise appears to be the first House lawmakers to host an in-person destination fundraiser since the severity of pandemic became clear. The invite for the “Summer Meeting” for the Scalise Leadership Fund, obtained by Axios, makes no mention of COVID-19.
