Absolutely fine hearing Vince Cable and John Humphries talking about an “erotic spasm” at 7.30am.

My interview with Vince Cable as a Lib Dem conference kicks off: - No-deal Brexit likely to plunge UK into recession - Still ‘plausible’ he could become PM, he says - despite planned resignation - Chance of stopping Brexit 30-40%

Ruth Davidson tells Sunday Times she never wants to be PM. She also speaks about her experience with depression and self-harm. Very refreshing to see a politician so openly talk about their mental health.

Pretty sure that one of the reasons Momentum has been so attractive for its members is precisely because it's not "moderate", and offered something different. Have a feeling this might have a disappointing outcome for its creators.
