Genuinely bizarre listening to Keir Starmer try to explain why we should trust the official Labour party position over the actual Labour leader's position on a second ref.

NY Times reports that North Korea is continuing to work on its ballistic missile programme at 16 secret bases which have now been spotted by commercial satellite. Is Pres Trump’s deal with Kim Jong-Un as brilliant as he thought?

John Redwood is on his feet in the HOC right now, urging the Government not to pay any of the £39 billion to the EU, and leave without any sort of deal. Scary how deluded he can still be at this late hour.

My friend in what little remains of trading standards tells me that they are seriously preparing for a reversion to imperial units for trading weights and measures after Brexit. That's about as barmy as blue passports.

I'll say it again. The way the government is treating 5 million people must be regarded as crime. And we must make it clear that we will exert every effort to ensure the perpetrators are prosecuted and jailed.

Has it ever occurred to you that it may not be the best political move for the leader of The Labour Party be actively pushing for the destruction of entire regions and the livelihoods of millions of workers? All Brexit scenarios do this.
