Do the Sums

17 LibDem MPs missed Monday’s vote on terror – including Chat-Show Charlie himself.

If they had turned up to vote in support of their own party policy the government would have lost the vote by 3, instead the government won by 14 votes. Pathetic.

Not that the missing 24 Tories have anything to be proud of either.

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.”
