Morning all.

I see we're not strong and stable any longer but smooth and orderly.

Not quite sure that describes the last two years mind....

I'm afraid that the likes of Rees Mogg and Redwood being totally unbothered by Grieve's latest "government concession" pretty much sums it up for me.

Any good news for them is bad for the rest of us.

I think Paul Waugh from the Huffpost nailed it with his initial tweet in reaction which started with "Grieve CAVES".

Yep, hard to disagree.

Even some of the FBPE lot seem to realise who to blame for this one.

As the Government will be whipping the vote on Monday, this means I am resigning from the Government. It has been an honour to serve the Prime Minister (and her predecessor) for the last 7 years and I wish the PM & the Government every continuing success.


So, Boris, what to do eh?

"A shoddy piece of work",IDS being honest about himself for a change,though very much an underestimation.

She is genuinely ghastly. I know that has been said lots of times before, but no harm in doing so again.

"You thought IDS was a twot you aint seen nothing yet"
Even more ignorant on the basics and that is saying something,at least IDS had a vague idea.

Let's hope that when Dimbleby goes, they chuck out who is incharge of inviting guests too...
Quote:
David Dimbleby presents an hour of topical debate from Birmingham. On the panel are Theresa May's former deputy Damian Green MP, shadow health secretary Jon Ashworth MP, Wetherspoon founder and chairman Tim Martin, journalist and author Afua Hirsch and Spiked columnist Ella Whelan.
