Ed Vaizey Brillo’d Over Brexit Budget

Pro-Remain minister Ed Vaizey repeatedly dodged Brillo’s question about which, if any, economists think Osborne’s tax-hiking spending-slashing post-Brexit budget would work. Accused of “filibustering” to avoid an answer, Vaizey then launched a bizarre attack on the Remain backing IMF’s economic credibility:

“You know full well over the last six years when George took decisions about cutting spending and raising taxes organisations like the IMF told him he was playing with fire”

Watson: I Was Wrong About Rebekah

On the Daily Politics this morning Brillo made Tom Watson eat his words after accusing Rebekah Brooks of not only being “responsible for wrongdoing at News International, but I believe she knew about it” (July 2011). Watson now admits he was wrong:

“Rebekah Brooks is not guilty. She has been found not guilty of conspiring to hack phones in a court of law. She is innocent, I wish her well with her life… I do accept she didn’t do it, I wish her well with her life and I hope she goes off and does something very productive in the world.”

Despite the mea culpa he says he cannot bring himself to say sorry. She’ll cope with that…

McTernan the Tables

A downbeat John McTernan didn’t think much of Labour’s chances in the European elections when asked by Andrew Neil on the Daily Politics today:

Brillo: “Are we inevtivably heading to European elections in which UKIP is a clear victor, Labour not a great second and the Tories a poor third?”

McTernan: “It’s got that feeling at the moment, hasn’t it.
