Lords Speaker Furiously Shuts Down Point of Order

A wayward Tory peer (Guido believes it’s Peter Lilley) foolishly attempted to make a Point of Order in the Lords, sparking the most dramatic scenes of the Lords’ marathon sitting on Yvette Cooper’s Bill so far – in fairness not a desperately difficult achievement. “He is not in the House of Commons!”

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.”
