Hearing a lot of calls for "public consultation on whether to pedestrianise". Can someone please link me to the public consultation that was held on whether to *motorise* South William Street?

And like clockwork, the disgusting abuse of Jo Swinson by Corbynista trolls begins. Using their classic tactics of "scrutinising her voting record" and "examining previous statements"

Brexit is hell served up on one of those revolving sushi belt things because here comes US-Canada again, to be followed by Switzerland, Norway, JustGetOnWithIt, and Enda Kenny Would Have Been Nicer To Us. And then fish.

Revealed: the files that expose ERG as a militant “party within a party”. Latest from on how the European Research Group spoon-fed attack lines to Tory MPs to undermine their own government and ministers

I am shocked, chilled and appalled by what I’ve just seen on Panorama. Hearing the testimony of party members and former staff was harrowing. They are not “disaffected”, they have been incredibly brave. Very serious questions now have to be answered.

The full-scale spin & smear operation against whistleblowers is absolutely disgusting. We should all be listening to their testimony instead of trying to demonize them.

Damning investigation into the cash-for-passports "Golden Visas" scheme. Far too easy for corrupt, wealthy foreigners to launder their dirty money in the UK. Outrageous that Gov has presided over this system while the hostile environment and Windrush scandal hit the most deprived

Returning to reality: Labour MPs are elected by millions of voters, we are not a club. You are not 'currently' a Labour MP because of your disturbing 'pattern of behaviour'. I joined the Labour Party 57 years ago because you can never be 'too apologetic' about fighting racism.

Can barely contain my excitement that the 'Failure's Failure' Chris Grayling is being rumoured to keep his job as transport secretary. Sometimes it is possible to believe there is a god

Given the current state of the leadership of both the Conservative and Labour parties, there must be real possibilities for the Liberal Democrats and their new leader to scoop up the votes of the politically homeless (loads) if there’s to soon be a General Election.

Reminded how Jo Swinson imposed unlawful £1,200 Employment Tribunal fees, including on discriminated against pregnant workers, when ConDem Employment Minister as she now as Lib Dem leader has a pop at Labour and her old Tory allies

I spent a night in in 2001 to call in Israeli activists in case bulldozers came in the night to demolish Palestinian homes. Now, 18 years later, they're still trying to extinguish Palestinian life. They are criminals.

BREAKING: Labour peers decide NOT to hold vote of no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn. But they do give their unanimous backing to Baroness Hayter, the party's deputy leader in the Lords, who was sacked as shadow Brexit minister for comparing Corbyn's office to last days of Hitler.

The project took 8yrs to complete & required around 400k staff - around the same no. of all FTE UK civil servants in all Depts. So if that’s a good analogy, we’ll have a solution to the Irish border by 2027 with our entire civil service doing nothing else
