Don't blame Parliament for doing its job, which is patently NOT to be a poodle to the Tory brexit attempts. The divisiveness of brexit in the country at large is accurately reflected in Parliament. In spite of persistent Tory attempts to undermine it, Parliamentary democracy is in a pretty good state at the moment. Which can't exactly be said for this botched and damaging Tory brexit.

I see that the Tory Welsh secretary has had to go, after being embroiled in a scandal in which he lied about what he knew about a discredited aide. The lying ads about universal credit have been banned by the ASA. And Boris has had to scupper his plan to use the civil service, whose wages we taxpayers pay, to produce numbers for him so that he can attack Labour spending plans. And Charlie Elphicke, embroiled in his own sex scandal, is still working for the Tory campaign despite being suspended from the party. Desperate times!   

The Grenfell issue will keep coming back to bite the Tories and could have a huge impact on this campaign. I note that Tory MPs at the final PMQ laughed at Corbyn's green tie, apparently not realising that he was wearing it that day as a tribute to the Grenfell victims. Oops!

Deceit, arrogance, entitlement, lies and more lies. The Tory way, given a new lease of life by the disgraceful Johnson.

And now they're comparing (unfavourably, of course) Corbyn with Pol Pot, Idi Amin and Uncle Joe. Bring it on!
