No Opposition

Guido notices that LibDem leader Charlie Kennedy missed Monday’s late-night vote on the government’s Terrorism Bill, despite his party having led opposition to the measure, which went through with a razor thin majority of 14.

Chat-show Charlie was nowhere to be seen.

Maybe he was feeling “unwell”.

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
