The Margaux is Drinking Well

The family Fawkes is in France this weekend, so in brief:

  • The website of the book is up.
  • As Tim Worstall says, Polly Toynbee has cracked, the common people can backchat the commentariat and she don’t like it (nor does her colleague Michael White).
  • A Tory MP you have never heard of (Mark Field) was shagging an ex-LibDem turned Tory A-lister (Liz Truss) whom you have never heard of either. He did not impregnate her. They are both getting divorced. She says he is not the father of her two-month old child.
  • Matthew Parris reckons Osborne is to the right of Thatcher, Fatty Pollard hopes so.

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
