Margaret Thatcher wanted political control of the BBC as well. Dangerous and destructive argument.

Full house. Some constituents are asking me to vote against the Brexit deal as they are brexiteers. Others want me to vote against because they are remainers. Some want me to vote for it because they are remainers. Others because they are brexiteers.

27 out of 20,000 ( if all 27 bothered to vote Labour) . Pathetic and risks a marginal seat.

One of the big issues in our area. Yesterday saw a veteran who has lost £40 a week, which puts him on the streets without extra support that has been sorted ( not from the callous council)

Actually a Labour gain from independent, in a seat that the Tories held for 10 years not that long ago with up to 70% of the vote.

One detail, far more significant than any other, is that the EU did not make free movement (aka immigration) one of their red lines in the deal. In all the furore and meltdown theatricals this needs serious reflection.

Perhaps the most economically significant development over last few weeks. UK is planning to stay in customs union permanently.

Ahead of today’s Finance Bill, a timely reminder for everyone about the distributional impact of the last Labour governments under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. Redistribution in action, while transforming the state of our public services. What a contrast.

Funny hearing Brexit blamed by companies who say they can’t find staff. What they mean is can’t find staff at the old, low salary levels. Adjusting to our new economic circumstances means paying people more. Painful, perhaps, but long overdue.
