Is this the End of the Itchy & Scratchy Show?

The jubilation of making it on to the ticket will pass for Diane Abbott. Not only will she be some £1,000 a week less well off for the duration of the 16 week campaign, but her seat on the This Week sofa might not be saved for her in September.  Things haven’t exactly been swell between her and Brillo since she appeared on the Daily Politics soon after declaring.

Neil quipped she was bringing diversity to the race as the only candidate to send her children to private school. Guido hears this did not go down well and there was quite the “diva moment” off air. As the summer progresses and the sure realisation dawns that she was David Miliband’s mere pawn to split the left and she isn’t going to win, might she slightly regret her unexpected decision to run?

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.”
