Just as the curtain is brought down on this rotten parliament, it seems the next generation of wannabes have taken a leaf out of their book. When the UK Youth Parliament were allowed to use the Commons for a debate, Bercow told them “This is an historic moment and one which I hope will show young people that the House of Commons, and the work that goes on here, is relevant to their lives.Clearly they were paying attention as the kids have now been embroiled in their very own expenses crisis.

Replace duck houses and phantom mortgages with “pizzas, chicken wings and fizzy drinks“.  A whistle-blower claims taxpayers money was being re-directed from deprived kids and spent on taxis and Blackberries,”“I said it was nothing short of corruption.” The former head of the Scottish Youth Parliament branded the organisation as nothing more than a booze fuelled “knocking shop“. Seems the kids have taken to the lifestyle like ducks to water.

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.”
