Good to see Alex Salmond has handled Hilary Benn’s speech with his usual good grace and sensitivity. He told LBC:
“His father, whose speech I heard in the Iraq debate all these years ago, would be birling in his grave hearing a speech in favour of a Tory prime minister wanting to take the country to war and that’s just a reality.”
I voted differently to Hillary Benn. Using his father's death to make a political point – "spinning in his grave" – is repulsive.

Even his own SNP MPs think it’s a bit much…
