Mori Say Labour Ahead highlights a mad Mori poll putting Labour ahead of the Tories for the first time in 26 surveys. A left-wing source told Guido that it was not an aberrant poll, but because Blair had said he was going. Unlikely since the sample was taken two weeks ago, before the Brownite putsch and leadership eruption. Egg on face time for Mori?

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.”
