Sayonara Sleazy Sayeed

Tory MP and tour-guide Jonathan Sayeed is standing down as Guido predicted [“not convinced Sayeed will yet fight the seat for the Tories”]. He wasn’t really that sleazy, it was just stupid and tacky. Pretty safe seat for the Tories , which they could hold even if they stood a donkey, and they probably will.

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.”
