Och No! Angus MacNeil Spends EU Vote in Loo

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 20.21.30

53 SNP MPs voted against the EU Referendum Bill in the Commons last nights. But one was missing:

According to Labour whips, he was hiding in there after going through the wrong lobby, and not wanting his Aye vote to be cast.

Ken Clarke abstained too, but for a different sort of crap.

UPDATE: MacNeil speaks exclusively to Guido:

“Felt I needed a little attention from Daily Mail as they were ignoring the SNP and wanted to make new MPs feel good when experience makes an mistake but mostly was distracted by Labour and Tories pleading for SNP votes for Select Committees”

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.”
