Darren Grimes continually refused to speak to me for this story. Now he will have to give some proper answers to why he was given £675,000 - money that was never even resting in his account but was 'spent on his behalf'

This was my thread on the false contention, promoted recently by Brexit supporters, that the Supreme Court decided that Article 50 was irrevocable. Today an apology in the Lords from one minister promoting this false view.

What?! I literally *did* work together with you, on an enquiry recommending EU27 citizens' rights be guaranteed. You then *voted against* that policy (as did Suella Fernandes, who was also an enquiry member). Why would anyone trust you folks ever again?!

Although I'm only fourteen, I know quite well what I want. I know who is right and who is wrong. I have my opinions, my own ideas and principles, and although it may sound pretty mad from an adolescent, I feel more of a person than a child-Anne Frank
