On the Cambridge Analytica Labour story I'm not sure I'm getting it.

It appears on the face of it to be Ian Warren who is the guilty party. Labour probably deserve some serious interrogation about data protection policies, but is the implication that Labour as a party deliberately passed data to Vote Leave? I don't see any evidence of that.

In other words, it seems to be more skulduggery around Vote Leave that is the story. And some questions as to why Labour thought it was a good idea to call on Warren's services in the first place.

First High Court challenge of Universal Credit scheme to begin


Under the previous benefits system, both TP and AR were in receipt of the Severe Disability Premium (SDP) and Enhanced Disability Premium (EDP), which were specifically aimed at meeting the additional care needs of severely disabled people living alone with no carer.

Look there is absolutely nothing fascistic about this totally targeted unintended consequence

You are getting it. Leave.eu appears to have used Labour Party data on Labour voters to target them with personalised messaging in the referendum campaign, potentially with unregulated attack ads via social media. They potentially broke data protection laws because the data was collated in a way that could identify individuals. They also secretly worked in unison with other leave campaigns, potentially breaking spending limits.

Yes, how Leave.eu got the data is a worrying question. Were Labour sloppy with data they should have been protecting, did Ian Warren steal this data, or did Labour Leave, who could potentially have legitimate access to this data, give it to them? As you say, it's not clear, but none of it is very good for our democracy, is it?

The Information Commissioner is investigating, the Electoral Commission is investigating.....

52/48

This skulduggery could well have swung the referendum. It's just really depressing. Our country is run by a bunch of spivs.

Another defeat for the Government. Margaret Hodge introduced an amendment, to compel Overseas Territories to compile a list of ownership of registered companies. The government tabled 3 amendments themselves, to block the vote, but Bercow ruled they submitted them too late.

Alan Duncan has just announced the government will not vote against Hodge's amendment.

Labour aims to force government to reveal Windrush correspondence

Labour is seeking to use the same arcane parliamentary procedure it deployed to force the government to hand over its Brexit impact assessments to allow MPs to scrutinise the decision-making process over how the Windrush generation was treated.

In a move that could cause extreme discomfort for ministers, Labour will use a so-called humble address motion on Wednesday to ask for all papers, correspondence and advice on Windrush between ministers, senior officials and advisors from May 2010 until now. (Guardian)

About a dozen Tory council candidates have been suspended now, compared to (I think) two Labour.

And to that we must add this, from the politics blog in the graun

Quote:
David Davis, the Brexit secretary, has admitted that the EU has “pushed back” on the two proposals from the government purportedly showing how the UK could leave the customs union but still maintain near-frictionless trade with the EU after Brexit. Two weeks ago, after the Daily Telegraph reported that both proposals had been rejected by the EU, Downing Street played this down, saying it did not recognise the claims. Today Davis effectively admitted that the reports were accurate.


So May is determined to keep two options, both of which have been rejected by the EU, on the table as our only two options, in order to avoid making a decision now that might damage the Conservative Party now.

The banks were happy to take taxpayers' money so that they could carry on coining it in- but are oblivious to the concept of providing any sort of civic service as their part of the deal.

Ok drunk Mr Sky has just got home from talking to a Yorkshire barmaid.

She was 20 years old and funny as fuck, she was hoping to go into marketing so I told her to watch "How to get ahead in advertising".

She'd never heard of Withnail and I.

It would seem our day is passed.
