As You Were: Mitchell Says He Was Being an Ironic Sexist Pig

Channelling Michael Winner when being accused of sexism? It’s as if Austin Mitchell was trying to make it worse

Ruth Davidson on working with PM Boris

“I have worked with him when he was Foreign Secretary. I will work with whoever the Prime Minister is. I haven’t had a phone call yet to ask me to run his campaign in Scotland. I am not expecting the call. But I will genuinely judge him on the same criteria as I judge any of the candidates.”
