Heidi Allen: By-Elections are the Right Thing

This will make her unpopular with her colleagues….

Rudd: Watershed Moment in Westminster

“We Need to Make Certain Lord Mandelson Gets His Pension”

Nigel Evans worries about pensioners like Mandelson…

Saj: We Are Lucky to Be British

The sort of upbeat message we don’t hear enough from this government. You could almost put it to music…

Fox: “I’d Take Up Being a Long Distance Swimmer”

Fox: “How Much Does EU Want to Punish Britain?”

Thornberry: “We Are Heading for No Deal”

 Some Remainers are pushing no deal more than Leavers at the moment…

Ukip Leader: I Could Kill a Badger With My Bare Hands

Move over DD, there’s a new Eurosceptic hardman in town…

Grayling Slaps Down Flights Scaremongering

Chris Grayling comprehensively slapped down remain scaremongering over flights post-Brexit, saying:

“Michael O’Leary’s got his own interesting challenges at the moment. Air France and KLM have just spent hundreds of millions of pounds buying a stake in Virgin Atlantic, they would not have done that if they thought there was the remotest danger of the planes stopping flying… People will be able to carry on booking their holidays. Does anyone seriously think the Spanish government, which would see hotel bookings collapse in 2019, is going to intervene to stop the planes flying? Of course they’re not.”

Zombie Project Fear’s latest BS not working….

NiMo Lands Amber In It

Nicky Morgan says she was contacted by a “very senior” member of the Cabinet who said “she” was appalled by briefings against Hammond. The only “very senior” member of the Cabinet (other than the PM) is Amber Rudd. Oops…

UPDATE: Remarkable hypocrisy from NiMo. Two weeks ago she said Boris “has to go” if he can’t keep quiet on Brexit. Last week she was widely implicated in the plot against the PM. Today Morgan says “it’s not helpful for anybody to have ministers being attacked, whether it’s the Chancellor or the Foreign Secretary” and criticises “self-indulgent” colleagues doing so. Eh?

McDonnell: Labour Would Accept Any EU Deal

John McDonnell on Marr:

“I will not countenance no deal, I’m not willing to countenance that, I don’t think it’s a realistic option…”

Labour would accept any EU deal, however punishing. Great negotiating tactic guys.

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.[…] Read the rest
