Baker: No.10 Blindsided Brexiters and Then Briefed Against Us

An excellent, must-watch interview with Steve Baker in which he explains why Theresa May must change her Brexit policy, reveals how Downing Street blindsided Dexeu and expresses righteous anger at Number 10 briefing against Brexiters. Leave Tory MPs – especially those being offered career advancement – should watch and listen…

Suella Last Brexiter in DexEU?

Suella appears to be in some kind of “Brexit Minister Protection Programme”. Escorted by Theresa May’s director of communications Robbie Gibb. Is that a thumb screw in Robbie’s pocket?

Andrea Jenkyns: “100% Ready” to Trigger Tory Leadership Contest

As Andrea says, she is a blunt Northerner, Tory MP Andrea Jenkyns is ready to put her letter into Graham Brady if Theresa May crosses the Brexit red lines. She’s not the only one…

Gove: Deal Critics Guilty of “Fake Outrage”

Michael Gove gave a full-throated defence of Theresa May’s deal on Marr, blasting those criticising the proposal as being guilty of “fake and mock outrage”. Gove says the two people who most oppose the deal are Clegg and Farage. Err, what about multiple Cabinet members, dozens and dozens of Tory MPs, 60% of Tory members (according to a ConHome poll this morning). And no doubt a huge number of the 17.4 million people who voted to leave. Are they all faking it?

Guido understands that Gove fully backed the PM’s plan from the beginning of the Chequers meeting, to the astonishment of Brexiters in the room. Gove has carefully moderated his position on Brexit over the last year, calculating that his best shot of becoming leader is getting Remain MPs onside. Today he has written a joint op-ed with ultra-Remainer Greg Clark in the Mail on Sunday lavishing praise on the deal. Guido can’t help but wonder if Gove has misjudged this. What will Brexiteer MPs and voters make of his performance over the last 48 hours?

Penny’s Sign Language at the Despatch Box

Mogg: Regulatory Alignment is Not Brexit

Jacob Rees-Mogg says that if Number 10 pursues remaining in the single market for goods and regulatory alignment, that is “not Brexit” and will mean we have nothing to offer other countries in terms of trade deals. He says it would be contrary the Tory manifesto. And he says he took 50 Tory MPs to see the chief whip this morning to protest…

He says he is still backing May…

Williamson Heckled By Siri

Gavin Williamson’s phone goes off as he speaks at the despatch box. Was he heckled by the sound of his own voice? One of his Insta stories from the Commons chamber? With the audio turned up, it turns out it was actually Siri: “I’ve found something on the web for Syrian Democratic Forces”

Perhaps soon AI will be able to replace MPs as lobby fodder. Dread to think what else Siri has overheard the Defence Secretary say…

Attempts being the operative word…

Hancock Jumps on a Wall

Matt Hancock has tweeted a video of himself jumping onto a 2 foot high wall and claimed it shows him demonstrating the military training discipline of parkour:

This follows him attempting to moonwalk last week:

Is he worried about Liz Truss?

Cameron Asked Obama to Say UK Would Be “At Back of the Queue”

Confirmation from ex-White House staffer Ben Rhodes on the Today programme this morning that David Cameron and his aides asked Obama to say Brexit would put the UK “at the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the US. Can’t think why the Remain campaign working with foreign countries to diminish Britain wasn’t popular with voters.

Corbyn: Legalise Medical Cannabis, Decriminalise Possession

Something Guido and Corbyn agree on, it is past urgent that medical cannabis is decrimalised and possession of recreational cannabis should be decriminalised too. Sajid looks likely to enable the former if not the latter…

Jezza: It May Not Be Coming Home

Jezza asked if England will win the World Cup:

“It’s a knockout from now on… it’s going to be very hard to see.”

Good to see he’s really behind the boys…

Earlier on Ridge he said of the competition:

“It tends to get a bit overboard, it is a game, it is football, it is sport… but remember that there are a lot of teams that are not there that would love to be there, a lot of people love the World Cup all over the world…”

Classic Jezza…

Angry Londoners Confront Sadiq Over Crime

Last night’s rare opportunity for Londoners to directly quiz their mayor was scheduled in the middle of the England match – but that didn’t save Sadiq Khan. He was faced by furious members of the public concerned about crime during the LBC debate – not even James O’Brien could spare the mayor’s blushes. An indication of just how unsafe people feel…

Danny Dyer on Dave

Danny Dyer tells Good Evening Britain that David Cameron is “in Nice with his trotters up” and should be held accountable for Brexit. 

Fox First to Fly England Flag

The Department for International Trade is claiming they were “one of – if the not the first dept – to fly the England flag this morning”, following a successful campaign by Nick Boles and The Sun. Whitehall sources, send us your pics… not expecting to hear from the Treasury.

UPDATE: Boris next out of the blocks

Hands Rinses Bercow

A subtle demolition of Bercow by Greg Hands:

“Mr Speaker, we all need to keep our election pledges, and that, Mr Speaker, applies whether we made those pledges one year ago or nine years ago.”

He lied…

Piers to Sadiq: Man Up and Do An Interview

Sadiq Khan dropped out of a broadcast interview again this week:

What a surprise…

Liz Truss on “Wood-Burning Gove”

Team Truss spinning hard that she didn’t break collective responsibility on the government’s plastic straws policy as that line was taken out of the speech. As you can see above though, she did make the crack at “wood-burning Gove”.

Truss is boldly attempting to spin her jibe as a good-natured joke about a “good mate”. Interesting way to treat your mates…

Quote of the Day

Paul Goodman as sagacious as ever on Arron’s entryism…

“… one must watch for former UKIP donors and a very few left-of-Party-centre MPs propping each other up, like drunks at the end of a pub crawl. It suits the former to claim the power to organise a programme of mass infiltration. It suits the latter to react by complaining about extremist entryism. The rest of us should keep a cool head.”
