Farron's Progress Offer

Guido couldn’t help but laugh at the news that Tim Farron has invited enemies-of-the-people Progress to the LibDem party conference. Farron has written Andrew Adonis, cc’ing the nations media:

“I have noted the moves from the GMB and others within the Labour Party to sideline Progress and force its members out of the party. This is a great shame. I do not mean to patronise you or your members by suggesting your response should be to join the Liberal Democrats… (but) we are also a party that is prepared to work with others for the good of the country…You and your members are welcome to join us and I’m sure the debate will be all the richer for it.”

Given that Progress are a bunch of right-wingers it’s hardly likely they would want to break bread with an old lefty like Farron. Maybe if he promised not to tell any jokes…

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
