Bercow Gives Woolas Stay of Execution

Phil Woolas is wandering around Parliament today and the Speaker who could have had ended his career with a click of his fingers has just delayed a by-election in order to allow the disgraced Labour MP to attempt to seek a Judicial Review. It could then go to the Court of Appeal, Supreme Court, and beyond… Ol’ lyin’ Phil isn’t going down without at fight.

Labour are already 60% favourites to win and the delay can only negate the Woolas controversy. Funny that the Labour supporting Mrs Speaker was urging her husband not to be too tough on Woolas this on breakfast TV this morning…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
