Bercow Supports Hunting

The Speaker has just granted an Urgent Question on the Hunt situation, meaning that the last day of the session will be dominated by Murdoch and the Culture Secretary. This will not go down well with No.10, especially as many saw Labour’s demand for a statement as over-playing their hand…

UPDATE II: The statement will be at 15.30.

UPDATE III: Guido would also recommend that Ed turns Theresa May’s Qatada line on it’s head:

“If any of my officials made a mistake, that is my responsibility…” 

This could get messy…
