Bob-a-Job Too Many

Was Bob Neill drunk when he filled out his election papers? He is a barrister after all, so he should have spotted that legally he would have to resign his Health Authority job – or at least an experienced agent should have spotted the issue.

Betfair odds jumped around a bit on the news, still not entirely certain what result the bookies would pay out if, say, UKIP went to court and got a re-run after Bob won. Labour shouldn’t get too excited even if their odds have been slashed from 400/1 to a mere 50/1.

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
