Labour MPs Back Brendan Cox

Brendan Cox is “showing how he’s going to change” says Jess Phillips, while Lucy Powell says “good for” him for “reflecting”.

Compare and contrast with how they went after Toby Young over some tweets.

Penny Calls For Brexit Vision and “Meat on the Bone”

More than slightly worrying that Cabinet ministers are having to call on Number 10 to give its vision for Brexit 19 months after the referendum…

McDonnell Accuses Bad Al of “Macho, Threatening Politics”

Top trolling…

Marr Tells Penny: “That Was Very Good”

Andrew Marr must have thought the cameras had stopped rolling when he gave a thumbs up and whispered “That was very good” to Penny Mordaunt after her interview this morning. He wasn’t wrong though. Made a change to see a Cabinet minister answering questions directly…

Penny Mordaunt Considering Ending Public Money For Oxfam

“If the moral leadership at the top of the organisation is not there, we cannot have you as a partner,” Penny says of scandal-hit Oxfam…

Henry Bolton: I Still Love Racist Jo

Asked if the relationship is still live, he replied “yeah”…

Former Civil Service Chiefs: Brexiters are Crazy Nazis

On the front page of the Observer the former head of the civil service Andrew Turnbull compares Brexiters to Nazis. On Peston his successor Gus O’Donnell called Leavers “completely crazy” snake oil salesmen. Guido won’t hold his breath for the same Twitter outrage as seen after the “mutineer” front pages criticising Remainers. Almost as if Rees-Mogg and Steve Baker have a point…

Raab: We Can’t Be In Any Form of Customs Union With EU

On Marr Amber Rudd fudged the question of whether we can be in a customs union with the EU. On Paterson Dom Raab was clear: we cannot be in any form of customs union “because if we were we’d have our hands tied in negotiating free trade deals with other parts of the world”. Being in a customs union would prevent us from signing comprehensive trade deals with other countries… that is not taking back control of trade. 

Rudd on Brexit Britain’s Economy: Then and Now

During the referendum Amber Rudd used her departmental Twitter account to scaremonger that the UK economy would fall into recession if we left the EU. Today she told Marr Brexit Britain’s economy “will absolutely grow”. What a difference 19 months makes…

Gerry Adams: I Want to See PM Corbyn

Returning the favour…

Claire Kober on Corbynista “Threats, Bullying, Intimidation and Sexism”

Brocialism in action…

Nadine: Hammond Has to Go

Pretty clear what the Mogg thinks too:

A view shared by increasing numbers of their colleagues…

Villiers: Brexit Being Diluted
Brexit Minister: We’re Not Backsliding

Theresa Villiers expresses the concerns of Brexiteers that Number 10 is shifting away from a clean Brexit towards permanent alignment with the EU:

But Brexit minister Martin Callanan insists the UK will have the freedom to diverge in future:

If we don’t, what is the point of Brexit?

Corbyn: Requisition Luxury Properties

Corbyn tells Marr he would “take over” “luxury, glossy, glistening” empty properties owned by rich foreigners. A problem which studies show is greatly exaggerated and over-simplifies the housing crisis. Remember this would be a breach of the European Convention on Human Rights, of which Corbyn told Marr a Labour government would remain a part…

Corbyn Lies About His Support For Iran

Corbyn told Marr he had accepted money from the Iranian regime “a very long time ago” – it was 2012 – and that he stopped because of the way they treated the Green movement – that was in 2009, he carried on taking their cash and praising their government for years after. Marr really should have pinned him down on this, Jezza is straight up telling porkies…

McDonnell: I’m Not Sorry for “Lynch” Esther Comments – But Don’t Play Tape Back To Me

John McDonnell has again refused to apologise for calling Esther McVey a “stain on humanity” and repeating that she should be “lynched”. The Shadow Chancellor was asked to apologise to McVey on Marr this morning but refused – worth remembering he also refused to at the time, contrary to his defence this morning. Marr threatened to play back the audio. A guilty McDonnell replied:

“No we don’t need to, I know exactly what was on it.”

Bewilderingly, McDonnell was then let off the hook – the audio was not played.

Here it is:

Hard man McDonnell can dish it out but can’t take it…

Macron: French “Probably” Would Have Voted to Leave EU

French President Emmanuel Macron admits the French people would “probably” have voted to leave the European Union had they been allowed a referendum. #DespiteFrexit…

Bolton: I Won’t Quit, UKIP Can’t Pay for Leadership Contest

Embattled UKIP leader Henry Bolton says he won’t quit over the Jo Marney affair. Speaking on Peston, he revealed a leadership contest would not be “financially viable” for the party. Bolton warned UKIP’s NEC against passing a motion of no confidence in him:

“If the NEC goes down the road of months of infighting… then the reality is the party is probably over.”

Crunch meeting later today…

Truss: We Can’t Undo Worboys Decision

Pressure on UKIP’s Bolton to Quit or Dump Jo Marney

Pressure building on badger-chasing UKIP leader Henry Bolton after the Mail on Sunday splashed racist messages about Meghan Markle from his new girlfriend Jo Marney.[…] Read the rest
