Marr Plans No Pro-Brexit Politicans on Last Show Before Euro-Elections

Brexiteers can only laugh at their lack of representation on the BBC. On the last Sunday before the Euro vote on Thursday the flagship BBC politics show will host a Brexit blocking party leader, an anti-Brexit First Minister, an anti-Brexit Tory, a party leader campaigning with the slogan “Bollocks to Brexit” and the founder of a party that has as it’s sole purpose opposition to Brexit. All flavours of remain represented.

We’ll see if Andrew Marr tries to bring up gotcha quotes from a decade ago for the likes Jeremy Corbyn, Nicola Sturgeon, Rory Stewart, Vince Cable and Chuka Ummuna. The Remain Show…

McDonnell: I Just Love Extinction Rebellion… They’re Brilliant

John McDonnell doing his best to outdo himself for most disingenuous comments on Marr this morning. Never mind the fact that Corbyn didn’t mention climate change once at PMQs over the last two years until a bunch of kids starting gluing themselves to things…

McDonnell’s Blatant Local Election Lie


Rory Stewart: Tory and Labour Brexit Positions 99% the Same

Rory Stewart says that Labour’s Brexit position of wanting a permanent customs union is 99% the same as the Tories’. He then goes on to sing the praises of the dire Turkey model and says the advantage of a Corbyn-May deal is that it could last for thirty years. Is he an undercover ERG double agent trying to spike the deal before it’s even agreed?

Gwynne Digs Hole Over Coal
