Make Your Mind Up Time

David’s continued refusal to say whether he will be staying or going is seriously damaging his brother’s storyline. This morning’s papers seem adamant that he is off, though if that was the case the continued lapping up of the Party’s admiration and ovations seems a little counter productive. If he was genuinely going for the good of the party, rather than sour grapes, he would have announced it yesterday instead of allowing another news cycle of speculation. The media care more about the real winner of the leadership race than the illegitimate king…

UPDATE: The betting markets now say David has a 66% chance of going, thanks to this morning’s papers.

Quote of the Day

The Daily Mirror has heard that at the shadow cabinet meeting, Nick Brown lost his train of thought so John McDonnell handed over a piece of paper to help out.

Brown: “You’re really helpful“.

McDonnell: “Yes I am. But it would be great if somebody could tell Skwawkbox that“.
