A reminder that the hurdle that candidates need to clear tonight is not just 33 votes. They have to avoid coming last. Even if all candidates get more than 33 votes, one has to go.

New - David Lidington backs Rory Stewart's campaign to be PM. Big endorsement - other campaigns starting to get twitchy about the numbers switching. But even then.. is it enough tomorrow to keep him the race? He needs at least 33 backers and to avoid coming last.

This is such a brave piece from on the hurdles MPs have to endure if they want to have a baby - no maternity leave, no extra funding for constituency staff and an oppressive judgment culture for taking any time off - even during miscarriage

Since shadow cabinet has been cancelled today, perhaps other members should also make a video of what they would have said, and set it to a stirring backing track?

NEW - tomorrow's shadow cabinet meeting on Brexit, which was expected to be a rocky one for Jeremy Corbyn, has been *cancelled* - because some people can't attend, apparently...

So in précis they all want to invest more in the NHS, in social care, in education, in mental health provision, in early years services. As says, if only they’d been in a position to do something about it rather than doubling down on austerity for 9 years.

Impatience and restlessness too often translate politically as a failure to let reforms bed in, or change for change's sake.
