All Labour’s Different Brexit Positions

Handy film from the Sunday Politics on all Labour’s different positions on Brexit…

Raab: We’re Preparing For No Deal in Private

Raab says preparations for no deal are being done in secret. The Sunday Telegraph reports May has decided to commit billions of pounds to a no deal scenario. Welcome but should have happened a year ago.

Nadine: May Should Sack Hammond

May wanted to fire Hammond after the election but he was saved by her weakness following the result. There’s a case that Hammond is far more at odds with government policy than Boris or any other Cabinet Brexiter. Getting rid would have saved a lot of time and effort…

Ruth: A Scot Can Lead Tories Again

Ruth says she is focussed on her job “right now” but doesn’t rule out coming down to Westminster after 2021…

Brandon Dismisses May Leadership Speculation as “Westminster Bubble” Talk

At one point he says “I’ve got to say…”. Well, quite…

Saj Late For Wife Date

Asked by Niall Paterson, Sajid Javid says he walked out of an interview with the Observer when they asked if he thought May should fight the next election because he was late for a date with his wife. “It’s as simple as that…”

May Won’t Say If Boris is Unsackable

Theresa May declined to say that Boris is unsackable on Marr this morning. It would be just as relevant to ask if Philip Hammond is unsackable – the Chancellor has consistently been more at odds with government policy than Boris. Hammond wants a five year transition, May and Boris want two years. Hammond wants an EEA minus model, May and Boris don’t. Is it really Boris who is out of line with policy, or is it Hammond?

Marr to May: “In the Last 8 Minutes You’ve Spent £12 Billion”

At the beginning of her Marr interview Theresa May criticised Labour’s plans for spending and borrowing. She then went on to announce £12 billion of new spending on tuition fees and Help to Buy without saying how she would pay for it. This is dangerous unfunded Labour-lite stuff, fighting on Corbyn’s turf…

Caroline Flint v Clive Lewis Immigration Bunfight

This got heated when Clive suggested Caroline was racist for supporting managed migration…

Flint: Remainers Aren’t Being Honest About Single Market

Labour’s Caroline Flint says Labour Remainers like Clive Lewis are not being honest and that continued single market membership would not be a real Brexit. Fair play to Caroline, she is one of the few Labour MPs speaking the truth at the moment…

Corbyn Backs “A Lot” of Continued EU Immigration

Corbyn doing his best to come to the aid of imploding Tories this morning…

Corbyn Can’t Say If He’s Used Uber

Increasingly farcical Marr interview in which Corbyn refuses to answer any questions…

Corbyn Suggests He Backs Illegal Strikes

Think that was 10 times Corbyn refuses to answer if he supports illegal strikes. A frustrated Marr responds: “What’s happened to Jeremy Corbyn that you can’t answer my questions?”

UPDATE: If anything Corbyn suggested he does back illegal strikes:

Corbyn: I Could Back Further Brexit Delay

Corbyn tells Marr he cannot put a figure on how long the transition should be, suggesting he could back a delay to Brexit longer than two years. Leave voters in Labour’s Brexit heartlands take note…

Davis: Boris Didn’t Change May Speech

David Davis has slapped down this morning’s claims by Team Boris that their man “saved Brexit” and toughened up May’s Florence speech. DD insisted government policy hasn’t changed for some time, he also backed Amber Rudd’s drive-by on Boris on Marr last weekend and confirmed he is halfway between the EEA light and CETA plus models, as Guido reported last week. This DD slap down has to be viewed through the prism of their rivalry, this morning’s Sunday Times reports Davis vetoed an election night plan by Boris and Hammond to oust May…

Green: No, Boris Isn’t Going to Be Sacked

Damian Green disappoints Boris-hating journalists by confirming that he isn’t going to be sacked. There was nothing in Boris’ article which went against current government policy – as Fraser Nelson says it doesn’t contradict policy, it articulates it better – and BoJo’s team are working hard this morning to insist he is fully behind the PM. Excitable stories and analysis about Boris being sacked are pre-conference dramatisation…

Rudd Refuses to Answer If She Wants to Be Leader

Reminder that Boris isn’t the only one on manoeuvres. Amber Rudd refused to answer Marr’s question about whether she wants to be leader – the answer is yes. She is the most ardent Remainer in the Cabinet, backed by the Theresa May-hating George Osborne. She had many reasons to machine gun Boris on live TV this morning…

Rudd: I Don’t Want Boris Managing Brexit

Amber Rudd machines gun Boris on Marr, accusing him of “backseat driving” and sternly insisting “I don’t want him managing the Brexit process“. Never mind that Rudd is an arch-Remainer who is equally ambitious as Boris, she lost the referendum and Boris won it…

UPDATE: That’s not what she used to say…

Ken Clarke Tells Blair: Brexit is Inevitable

Ken Clarke tells Niall Paterson:

“I’m pessimistic about staying in the European Union. Parliament voted by an enormous majority to be bound by this referendum. I think myself it’s inevitable we are going to leave the European Union.”

A reality check for Tony Blair and ultra Remainers indulging his fantasies…

Blair: Don’t Do Brexit

That’s about the sum of Blair’s contribution to the Brexit debate. Reminder that according to YouGov every section of the British population dislikes Tony Blair…[…] Read the rest

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
