Williamson Refuses to Pick Blair Over Maduro

Labour Shadow Home Office Minister Chris Williamson defended Nicolas Maduro’s socialist regime on Newsnight. He refused to say whether he would side with Tony Blair over Maduro and Venezuela’s former leader Hugo Chavez. Asked about its midnight arrests of opposition leaders, Williamson said of the Venezuelan government:

“They’re under incredible pressure… I’m yet to hear any criticism…of the United States intervention there and the sanctions.”

Ruth Davidson on working with PM Boris

“I have worked with him when he was Foreign Secretary. I will work with whoever the Prime Minister is. I haven’t had a phone call yet to ask me to run his campaign in Scotland. I am not expecting the call. But I will genuinely judge him on the same criteria as I judge any of the candidates.”
