Wot No Hottie?

This week the Guardian ‘Backbencher’ column has no “Political Hottie” feature, Guido suspected the failure last week to include the feature was because it might have been written by Tom Happold (in drag as the short-skirted ‘Backbencher’), but this week the feature is again missing.

Could the recent hectoring from this quarter of the blogosphere have led to its permanent and deserved demise? A question for Ros Taylor, the Media Wrap editor, methinks.

UPDATE : Its back this week!

Quote of the Day

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
