Claire Perry Accuses Bercow of “Sexist and Demeaning” Behaviour

John Bercow is facing yet more allegations this afternoon, with Tory minister Claire Perry accusing him of “sexist and demeaning” behaviour and having a “women problem”. Perry says a dozen colleagues from all sides of the House are backing her after the incident yesterday. How long will the Speaker keep getting away with it?

UPDATE: Perry’s letter via The Sun.

UPDATE: Bercow has replied, dismissing Perry’s claims and instead inviting her for a “clear the air cup of tea”. Extraordinary…

Tory Brexiteer MP Andrea Jenkyns, walking through the ‘Stop Brexit’ protesters outside parliament this afternoon chanting “Go Brexit!”. Legend.

Collins Humiliated as Banks Walks Out For Lunch

After running rings around Damian Collins and his dire DCMS committee all morning, Arron Banks then left them completely humiliated by standing up, telling them he had a lunch to go to and walking out. Nothing the impotent Collins could do. Watch to the end to see his face – a picture of total defeat. That’s how you take grandstanding select committee chairmen down a peg or two…

UPDATE: Guido hears their lunch date was with DUP MPs Ian Paisley and Sammy Wilson.

Banks Running Rings Round Collins’ DCMS Committee

Arron Banks is enjoying himself a lot more than the MPs on the DCMS committee this morning. At one point he asked them: “Are you all Remainers? Yep? Hands up?”. And then he burned Paul Farrelly:

“What is this? Are you the MP who got drunk in the House of Commons and harassed a woman at a karaoke evening?”

Those watching are not impressed with the performance of the committee:

Don’t think this is playing out quite how Damian Collins wanted…

Collins Declines to Recuse Himself Over Russian Hospitality

Andy Wigmore mentions Guido’s story on Damian Collins accepting hospitality from Putin-linked Roman Abramovich at Chelsea FC. He asked the DCMS Committee Chair:

“Perhaps you might want to recuse yourself?”

Collins laughed:

“All I can say is… I didn’t meet the owner, I wasn’t offered Stalin’s vodka, I’m not as good at pushing their buttons as you are… I declared in the Register of Members’ Interests, there were no inducements, offers… Chelsea won 2-1”

Awkward…

Max Fac, But in Customs Union For Ages

Newsnight’s Nick Watt reckons Number 10 will eventually plump for Mac Fac, but we will stay in a customs union for a very long time before we get there. Which carries the risk that we might never leave…

Emma Dent Coad Does It Again

Emma Dent Coad does it again on the Daily Politics. Asked if she wants to remain in the single market, she said:

“Absolutely, always have done, yes”

And asked if she will back the EEA amendment to keep us in the single market, against the Labour whip?

“No, I won’t”

The people of Kensington are lucky to have her…

Damian Collins Wants to Know if Arron Banks Took Moscow Gold

Damian Collins wants to know if Arron Banks took Moscow gold to fund the Leave.EU campaign. Arron wanted to appear in front of the DCMS Select Committee, then he said he wouldn’t go, now he says he’ll see them next week. Collins versus Banks should be fun…

Lidington: “Hopes” Backstop Over by 2022

Three days ago the government said it “expects” the backstop to have ended by December 2021. Now Lidington says his “hope” is that it’s over by the 2022 election. Does anyone believe them? 

Brown: Corbyn Is A Phase

A very relaxed-looking Gordon Brown gives Corybn a gentle kicking, agreeing that he is “a phase”. Brown continued: “we’re all phases… politicians have a short shelf life in terms of life at the top”. He would know…

Richard Madeley Speaks for Britain Again

“If you stay in the customs union and the single market you’re not leaving… I’m sorry, this is democracy… that means leaving… the Prime Minister said ‘Brexit means Brexit’… what we are seeing as far as the government is concerned is lurching from one holding operation to the next… it’s time for proper leadership on this… let’s make it work, and I voted remain!”

Madeley ‘terminated’ Question Time’s Remainers…

Shami’s Shameless State Schools Hypocrisy

Shami attacking grammar schools and singing the praises of comprehensive education on Question Time last night, claiming that her state schooling got her into the Lords. Now there’s a compelling argument for education reform…

What the Shadow Attorney General failed to mention – leaving viewers entirely none the wiser – is that she chose to send her own son to the academically selective, £18,000-a-year Dulwich College – not just a private school, but one of the very best and most competitive in the country. One rule for the many, another for the few…

Opportunities In Volatility

Henderson International Income Trust’s Fund Manager Ben Lofthouse gives his thoughts on where income opportunities are emerging amid global stock market volatility

Volatility has crept back into global markets after a good run in the past few years, but its good news for active income investors (i.e. a team of fund managers that aims to beat an index rather than a fund that tracks an index).

Uncertainty in markets is an advantage for active stock-pickers and we are seeing plenty of opportunity to add high dividend-paying stocks at good valuations to the Henderson International Income Trust.

Technology stocks have gradually become important names in the Trust’s portfolio, which is not something you would have heard from an income-driven fund manager just a few years ago and is a clear reflection of the changing times…

Quote of the Day

Dr Taj Hargey, Imam, Oxford Islamic Congregation, tells The Times

“Sir, Boris Johnson should not apologise for telling the truth. His evocative analogy is unfortunate but he is justified in reminding everyone that the Wahhabi/Salafi-inspired fad of female facial masking has no Koranic legitimacy. It is, however, a nefarious component of a trendy gateway theology for religious extremism and militant Islam.

The burka and niqab are hideous tribal ninja-like garments that are pre-Islamic, non-Koranic and therefore un-Muslim. Although this deliberate identity-concealing contraption is banned at the Kaaba in Mecca it is permitted in Britain, thus precipitating security risks, accelerating vitamin D deficiency, endorsing gender-inequality and inhibiting community cohesion.

The retrogressive Islamic clergy has succeeded in persuading ill-informed Muslims through suspect secondary sources that God wants women to cover their faces, when in reality it is a toxic patriarchy controlling women. Is it any wonder that many younger women have internalised this poisonous chauvinism by asserting that it is their human right to hide their faces? Johnson did not go far enough. If Britain is to become a fully integrated society then it is incumbent that cultural practices, personal preferences and communal customs that aggravate social division should be firmly resisted. For this reason Britain must emulate France, Belgium, Austria, Bulgaria and Denmark in banning the burka.”
