Over the weekend we’ve had Amber Rudd quit the Conservatives because it is morphing into the Brexit party. If the Tory party doesn’t have a home for Ken Clarke, Rory Stewart, Nicholas Soames or Amber Rudd but is in the thrall of the ERG then they may as well give the keys to Nigel Farage and be done with it.
Slipping slightly under the radar this weekend we also saw veteran Labour MP John Mann quit the Labour Party because of antisemitism, accusing Corbyn of not only being “an” enabler of antisemitism in the country but “the enabler.
And momentum have deselected backbencher of the year, Diana Johnson, and believe it or not have started proceedings to deselect Kier Starmer of all people.
And then we have both Jo Swinson and Layla Moran from the Lib Dem’s saying that they want a second referendum but if leave win agains they will ignore the result.
Who the hell is a centrist voter who respects democracy expected to vote for?

|Interesting revelation from Tobias Elwood|
at 14:32 5 Sep 2019
When Stephen Kinnock's amendment went through by mistake last night to bring back May's deal, Kier Starmer wanted to vote against it. Tobias Elwood asked him "why don't you want that" Starmer replied "because we are all united on voting against no deal but we don't know what to do next"
Elwood then said that this summed up parliament. Three years on and no one can agree what Brexit should look like.
We could have a second referendum and if the result was leave again the SNP, Liberals, Greens and assorted Labour MP's would still vote against any type of Brexit. Swinson and Blackwood have publicly stated this.

Tories lose their majority. They have to call an election now. They can’t go on like this.

What is your favourite Beatles album and why?
For me it’s Revolver. That album sees the Beatles leaving their Mop Top phase and moving into psychedelia.
The Beatles invent The Jam (Taxman), the Chemical Brothers (Tomorrow Never Knows), Dexys Midnight Runners (Got To Get You Into My Life), ELO (Eleanor Rigby) and Oasis (She Said She Said).

Has any of our comedy fans on here been this year?
We went to see Jason Byrne on Saturday who was pretty manic and very funny.
Going to see this show on Thursday on the recommendation of Cotty*
He recommended this two years ago.

Exclusively at the expense of the Brexit party. Which suggests that if he doesn’t deliver by the 31 October then his honeymoon will be very short lived.

Is a magnum an ice lolly or an ice cream though? I’d say ice cream.
