Nick Boles has jumped, rather than be pushed.

The Tories must be perilously close to losing their majority now, even when factoring the 10 DUP MP's into the equation.

EDIT: I've just seen that he intends to continue taking the Conservative whip, i.e. the majority remains unaffected.

The Brexit press suddenly have a new target in their sights. Anymore treachery from Cox and they’ll make it personal next time.

With all the rumours flying around about some Tories trying to launch a coup on May, can I suggest that as an interim PM we ask Jacinta Arden? Otherwise the next in line should be the Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office...

A Tory MP convicted for making a false expenses claim is facing a petition that could see him lose his seat.

Commons speaker John Bercow will ask officials to open a recall petition once Chris Davies is sentenced, with a by-election to be held if 10% of the MP's constituents sign it.

The Brecon and Radnorshire MP was convicted last Friday.

Davies, 51, admitted to two charges relating to creating false invoices for £700 worth of photographs.

Blueshirts. I'm not joking.

They clearly have little awareness of Irish history post-partition if they're not aware of what the term "Blueshirts" means over there, where ironically right now its the Blueshirts fighting against them on Brexit! Perhaps they consulted Daniel Hannan on their research before coming up on the name. :mrgreen:
