Peter Bone Off On One Again mdi-fullscreen

Ignore Free Schools, the EU and the reshuffle. The big news today is the vote for chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group against human trafficking this evening. Peter Bone is off on one again. This time at Labour MP Fiona Mactaggart’s decision to challenge him for the chairmanship, accusing her in a letter to colleagues of “trying to turn the APPG into a party political group, which will promote a left-wing agenda”. Bone says “It would be outrageous if a left-wing Labour MP turned the group into a vehicle to attack the Prime Minister”, adding “You might also like to be aware the Ms Mactaggart has taken little interest in attending group events”. High stakes…

Mactaggart has hit back, insisting that “I would want to continue the cross party approach”. She denies that she “asked for any support from Party whips” and amusingly suggests she would have the support of the Prime Minister. Guido awaits the 5pm vote with baited breath…
