One of Guido’s favourite MPs, John Hemming, is trying to get ministers, or rather their civil servants, to answer questions. Something you would think essential for a functioning democracy.
First of all he needs to establish that questions in letters are not “proceedings in parliament” which are outside the scope of court actions. Good luck, and if any of Guido’s many skiving legal readers are interested, here is his pleading.
Hopefully he won’t be the only one taking Tony to court this year.
Paul Goodman as sagacious as ever on Arron’s entryism…
“… one must watch for former UKIP donors and a very few left-of-Party-centre MPs propping each other up, like drunks at the end of a pub crawl. It suits the former to claim the power to organise a programme of mass infiltration. It suits the latter to react by complaining about extremist entryism. The rest of us should keep a cool head.”
