  • Paddy Power Tory Leadership Odds June 30, 2016
    Paddy Power have profiled the five Tory leadership contenders – they’re offering Theresa May at 4/7, Michael Gove at 5/2, Andrea Leadsom at 9/2 and then long shots Stephen Crabb at 20/1 and Liam Fox at 40/1. May is the bookies’ favourite because she is a certainty to get on the ballot and has polled well with the […]
  • Tory Social Media Campaign Begins June 30, 2016
    The first real social media campaign for a Tory election has had a lacklustre start, with just three accounts spawned across Twitter and Facebook so far. Theresa May leads the pack with a Nation-builder website Theresa2016.co.uk capturing email addresses for the all important final membership round. Facebook and Twitter pages complete the digital assets. May already boasts 649 […]

    This is the moment Jewish Labour MP Ruth Smeeth was accused of colluding with the right-wing press by Momentum activist and former Guardian writer Marc Wadsworth at this morning’s Corbyn anti-Semitism event. The Telegraph reports Wadsworth handed out deselection leaflets warning “traitors” will be found out and took Smeeth’s name down on a piece of paper. Wadsworth […]

    “First, Brexit means Brexit. The campaign was fought, the vote was held, turnout was high, and the public gave their verdict. There must be no attempts to remain inside the EU, no attempts to rejoin it through the backdoor, and no second referendum. The country voted to leave the European Union, and it is the duty of […]

    Michael Gove and his columnist wife Sarah Vine are clearly a close couple, today’s email reveals they are political co-conspirators as well.

  • Corbyn Gets His New Politics At Last June 29, 2016
    Jeremy Corbyn managed – just – to find someone to sit next to him. He didn’t talk to Tom Watson (who’s gamely riding out the worst post-Glasto comedown conceivable), instead turning his head towards the less dangerous Kate Osamor. He then exchanged a few words with the surely harmless Clive Lewis, and some more with Dennis Skinner. […]

    A source close to Liam Fox tells Guido he will announce his leadership bid tomorrow. This comes after speculation he was in talks with Theresa May, which is denied by both sides.

    Pro-Corbyn supporters are jumping on Cameron’s call for Corbyn to “go“. Dave looked like he was being sincere but has he made it harder for Labour to get rid? Ed Miliband has now called for Corbyn to go – no Shadow Cabinet job for him then. Momentum have curiously cancelled their “Keep Corbyn” event tonight “due to overwhelming demand”, […]

  • The Irish Dimension June 29, 2016
    ‘England’s difficulty is Ireland’s opportunity.’ That old republican dictum was oft-repeated in the run-up to Easter 1916, when King was busy battling Kaiser in far-flung French fields. A century later, England’s Brexit travails are less welcome across the Irish Sea, even by many republicans. Nevertheless, the decision to leave the European Union represents the most […]

  • The suicide squad June 29, 2016
    The UK is currently a non-functioning democracy. The Prime Minister has handed in his notice and has no nominated successor. The leader of the Opposition has just been served with a vote of no confidence by 80% of his own MPs. Parliamentarians are openly discussing overturning the result of a democratic referendum. People are pretending […]
