Rumour that Powell Has Been Questioned UNDER CAUTION

Guido has been using this graphic since the beginning of the year. Ruth Turner has already been questioned, Powell it is rumoured widely today, has it is said been questioned under caution.

No confirmation, but no doubt the fearless gentlemen of the lobby will be able to enlighten us shortly…

UPDATE : Tom Kelly, the PMOS has just swerved the question at the lobby briefing and steered them with a “don’t get too excited” line. Excited? Guido will be ecstatic.

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.”
