On a beach listening to TMS. Wish I could be watching this opening spell from Archer. Missed his battle with Smith too.

Starting to think my constant scathing articles about Brexit are making absolutely no difference whatsoever.

Great to be invited to MediaCom’s Transformation Week. Especially since their meeting room appears to be a fully functional pub. Cancel those afternoon meetings... Thanks

Considering the huge reasons Chuka Umunna and others left their original parties I think it’s amazing that he’s being attacked for trying to find a new political home and make a difference in politics 🤷🏼‍♀️

The rallies start this month, and the October march is the week before the final council of europe summit where an alternative to a no deal Brexit is likely to be urgently needed.

Hi - there are rallies starting this month around the country, as well as the October rally, which is timed just ahead of the final European council summit before the deadline, a time when any alternative to a no deal Brexit is likely to be a hot issue

These politicians have done nothing but played with their manipulative words to public and still worried about who will become next PM rather than sorting out this country.

I hope not! Today’s vote was always likely to be defeated. Any proposal put forward by the leader of the opposition is unlikely to be endorsed by Tory mps even if they support a referendum. When push the big talk gets a reality check, we still need a solution.

Thanks for the encouragement. We can still get a Final Say for everyone, so that more than just the 0.25% of the electorate (the Conservative party members) get to set the final direction for Brexit.
