May Refuses to Answer Trident Question Four Times

Theresa May refuses four times to answer Marr’s questions about the Trident cover-up reported in the Sunday Times:

MARR: When you made that first speech in July in the House of Commons about Trident did you know that misfire had happened?

MAY: Well, I have absolute faith in our Trident missiles. When I made that speech in the House of Commons, what we were talking about was whether or not we should renew our Trident…

MARR: Did you know that it had happened?

MAY: I think that we should defend our country. I think that we should play our role within Nato and have an independent nuclear deterrent. Jeremy Corbyn thinks differently…

MARR: This is a very serious incident. Did you know about it when you were talking in the House of Commons?

MAY: And the issue that we were talking about in the House of Commons was a very serious issue…

MARR: Prime Minister, did you know?

MAY: There are tests that take place all the time regularly for our nuclear deterrence. What we were talking about in that debate that took place…

That’s a yes then…

Confirmed: Nuttall Stands in Stoke

Paul Nuttall is UKIP’s candidate in the Stoke Central by-election, the party announced this morning. His candidacy was “unopposed” at an NEC meeting last night. UKIP came second in Tristram Hunt’s old seat last year and the constituency voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU. Nuttall’s candidacy was expected: this is the fifth time he has run for parliament and is by far his best chance so far at gaining a seat. Nuttall has just 33 days to connect with Stoke voters: Labour imposed a tight timetable in the hope it might scupper his efforts. A big, bold, but probably necessary call from UKIP…

Osborne Drops News of BlackRock Job 17 Minutes Before Trump Inauguration

George Osborne drops the news he’s taking a job at BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, 17 minutes before Trump’s inauguration kicks off. He will be joining his old aide Rupert Harrison and keeping his part-time role as MP for Tatton. Gotta commend him on his timing and spin:

“BlackRock wants better outcomes for pensioners and savers – and I want to help them deliver that.”

UKIP Out-NHS Labour in Copeland

Labour have made much of their Copeland candidate Gill Troughton’s NHS links, billing her as a doctor and surgeon. Well, sort of. According to her LinkedIn profile Troughton was a junior doctor at Kent and Canturbury Hospital for eight months in 1991, then a junior surgical doctor at Frimley Park Hospital for another seven months until February 1992. After that she gave up the medical profession for a career as a school governor and councillor, though she has been a St John’s Ambulance volunteer since 2012. There is no Gillian Troughton in the General Medical Council’s list of Registered Medical Practitioners. Not quite the lifelong NHS career they’d have you think.

UKIP have trumped Troughton with their own candidate Fiona Mills, who has worked for the NHS for 24 years, most recently as an accountant where she “worked closely with clinicians to try to deliver quality services for patients and value for money for taxpayers”. Not exactly a nurse, though at least she’s worked in the NHS for more than a few months. Obvious why both parties are claiming strong NHS credentials, the local Keswick Hospital is a key issue for Copeland voters…
