Meanwhile does anyone understand the Labour Party position on Brexit?
I suspect a general election in the near future is inevitable and one of the major parties still has no definite stance.
Good news that Antoinette Sandbach not only lost the whip but has also been de selected. Hopefully the first of many. She was elected on a brexit ticket and continually voted against the government. Very pleasant to see her get her comeuppance.
Magic grandads past is catching up with him. During an Emergency Question on Turkey in the Commons, Raab raised the importance of the role of NATO, fairly going on to remind the house about Corbyn’s prominent anti-NATO past. Thornberry began spitting feathers over Raab’s audacity to cite the past stated positions of the Leader of the Labour Party…

(As an aide-memoire for the shadow foreign secretary, her dear leader has in the past claimed NATO was set up to “promote a Cold War with the Soviet Union” and wrote a column for the Morning Star entitled “High time for an End to Nato” )

You could not make it up!
