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

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
