Labour Council Apologise for Threatening Stafford Campaigners

Guido’s story this morning about Labour-run Cannock Chase district council’s threat to sue militant Stafford Hospital campaigners unsurprisingly caused a stir. The Council are in full backtrack mode. In true public-sector form, they are blaming it on the little guy. They have told the BBC:

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp.
