Labour Rebels List Growing

Miliband has called Cameron’s backbenchers “barking” and accused the party of having a “collective nervous breakdown” about tonight’s vote. Tactful short-termism from a leader who has missed the chance to speak for middle-England. The words look even sillier given that one Labour source suggests that up to thirty of Ed’s own side are preparing to call for a referendum. Other sources, closer to the leadership, spin that they are expecting less than fifteen…

Even if it’s half way between the two, the current media narrative that this is just a “Tory splits” story is starting to look a little sloppy.

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.”
