+ + + Labour Grandee to Pull Trigger on Illsley + + +

Sky’s Jon Craig is reporting that Labour’s Sir Stuart Bell is gearing up to table a motion to expel Eric Illsley. Over a thousand people have signed the petition calling on the disgraced Barnsley MP to fall on his sword, and the PM and Ed Miliband have both said his position is untenable.

Is Guido still allowed to use cross hairs?

UPDATE: It seems Sir Stuart is attempting some sort of expenses penance:

“If this was received by unauthorised means, it is disgraceful that a national newspaper should stoop so low as to buy information which will be in the public domain in July. It undermines the very basis of our democracy and is against all the rules of fair play.”

A very different tune today compared to the dark days of May 2009.
