And guess what - the DfE manipulate the numbers on free schools...who'd have thunk it?

'The government's manipulation of the data on free schools is shameless'

So there it is: the DfE is cherry-picking data so that only one portion of free schools’ Ofsted judgement profile is publicised. And it appears to be using less successful – and even closed – free schools to bump up the numbers said to have been opened, but which are then not to be counted in assessments of the policy’s success.

The important vote was back in March,and Labour was on the wrong side.

There might have been some fun embarrassing the Tories, but that is just politics as a game.

Giving powers to the government to enact legislation without oversight is trivial?????



It is completely inevitable given the vote on art 50. Nobody has suggested any alternative (unless it is Remain).

Isn't giving Parliament a meaningful vote on the exit deal an alternative to what the government is proposing in the repeal bill currently before the House?
A repeal bill of some description is necessary, but this particular repeal bill really isn't.

A highly predictable take.

Of course, the reality is that Labour voting against A50 was never a feasible option - and wouldn't have been whoever the leader was.



For the "people have spoken" reasons that Flint and Field now invoke.


Bugger that.

I'm with the 47 who defied Corbyn's whip.

Unbelievable.

Just to cheer you up, Suella Fernandes has been speaking on Brexit. The EU was bad for democracy, you know.

Tory MPs don't know the difference between Whitehall and Parliament.

Charlie Elphicke, Conservative MP for Dover & Deal, received a lot of support for making this comment about the EU divorce bill.


This is not a good sign. Certainly not for David Davis who's already said we will be paying a bill.

Well done, Charlie. We should send you in to the negotiations. See what happens.

Giving the government powers to bypass committees and votes in the house to pass any legislation they see fit is "inevitable"? I suggest you watch Bryant's speech.

It doesn't say so but there's a lot of credit due to Nick Linford and FE Week over sticking with this and getting a suppressed report published.

And his alternative is what?

He hasn't got one.
