Ed Meets Some Tories

Poor Ed. First he kicked off his tour of the country today by visiting a cafe in Bedford, where the owner revealed that “I find the Conservatives are more pro-business”. Then he went to a brewery in Bedford, where one of the bosses says “The move by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, to not only abolish the duty escalator but to actually reduce duty was a welcome one, allowing the Group to pass the 1p saving on to our brewery pub licensees”. Surely Ed’s afternoon trip to Doncaster to campaign on zero-hour contracts can’t possibly go wrong? He better ignore the fact that Labour-run Doncaster council employs 300 people on zero-hour contracts, mind. Another good day on the stump then.

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
