Exclusive: Hancock Has Resigned from the Defence Committee

After specultion earlier that he was about to be sacked, defence sources just confirmed that Hancock resigned this morning from the Defence Select Committee. Jumped before pushed…

UPDATE: Technically a committee member has to be replaced by the House on a House order but Guido understands Hancock has got the ball rolling to get this going…

UPDATE II:

UPDATE III: In all fairness the blogger who got the first whiff of this story was Geoffrey Brooking.

Quote of the Day

Paul Goodman as sagacious as ever on Arron’s entryism…

“… one must watch for former UKIP donors and a very few left-of-Party-centre MPs propping each other up, like drunks at the end of a pub crawl. It suits the former to claim the power to organise a programme of mass infiltration. It suits the latter to react by complaining about extremist entryism. The rest of us should keep a cool head.”
