The extent to which the People's Vote campaign - even at its hour of maximum opportunity - looks like an ancien régime revival project is quite something.

Like many non-religious parents, I had no choice - within the state system - but to send my children to a faith school. That’s the point.

It's been lost in the chaos of the last few days, but has played an absolutely critical role in forcing the government to act on life-ruining fixed odds betting machines. I'm proud of him, you should be too, please show him your appreciation. 👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻

The fact you're standing next to me in one of those pictures demonstrates that your initial claim - this is "my first ever engagement with Welsh politics" - is a lie. You just don't like the fact I'm backing a different candidate to the one you're voting for.

No, you said this is my first engagement with Welsh politics, that you know otherwise demonstrates that, I'm afraid, you lied in your tweet. I'm sorry that I don't support the candidate you're backing, which is actually your objection here: probably better to be honest about it.

Hi Harry! I've campaigned in Wales many times over the last few years, including a mass day in Preseli Pembrokeshire last year, in Cardiff, in Swansea, in Pontypridd and elsewhere. I'll keep proudly campaigning in Wales, only with your permission of course!

What on earth was this about? Intensely awkward to watch - although Shami Chakrabarti more than stood her ground.

Reading every single word of the 585 page Brexit agreement, if you don’t have legal training, is a worse use of your time than reading a wide range of expert summaries and analysis.

Very assured performance by on . It's striking how the media just don't get the left-wing position on the EU - oppose free market ideology, back workers' rights and social protections. Most Remain voters are not blind cheerleaders of the EU in its current form

Read this profile description and tell me with a straight face you don't want to nationalise everything on sight (their chief executive says "What keeps families inside and outside the UK awake at night is the risk of a Labour government"🎻🎻🎻)
