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

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
