It was expected to be close, but in the end he won fairly comfortably.

That contest, together with another 1978 by-election in Hamilton that elected George Robertson, marked the ebbing of the first big SNP "wave" even before the devolution referendum and its fallout cooked their goose for a generation (turkeys voting for Xmas, indeed)

Britain's 21st-century housing catastrophe bears an eerie resemblance to my childhood

In the 1920s, Harry Leslie Smith was shunted from one cold, dirty, overcrowded hovel to the next, fleeing by night when his father could no longer pay the rent. Nearly a century on, little has changed for many working-class families

Apparently Lord Lawson was wheeled out on the radio to defend hilarious Boris. What with Redwood and IDS being in the media yesterday, I'm not exactly getting an impression of enthusiasm for cake and eat it hard Brexit among senior Tories, or indeed Tory MPs.

Tory MPs will have a decent sense of how it's going, more than we can at this distance. Are they seeing an even more obvious clusterfuck than we are?

Aung San Suu Kyi award suspended by UK union over Myanmar crisis

Unison one of a number of institutions in Britain to withdraw honours in response to humanitarian crisis


One of Britain’s largest trade unions has suspended an award given to Aung San Suu Kyi during her time as a political prisoner, as international criticism mounts over her tepid response to Myanmar’s humanitarian crisis.

The move comes as a number of British institutions say they are reviewing or removing honours bestowed on Aung San Suu Kyi during her campaign for democracy under Myanmar’s oppressive military junta. (Guardian)

I see there is some right wing crowing (including Rees-Mogg) that we're up one place to 8th in world manufacturing.

From 2009 (PwC report):
