Let me get this straight: Grayling failed to get elected chair in a rigged vote where his party had a majority and controlled the process.

So now Johnson’s majority is 79 rather than 80, and the new Chair of the committee he wanted his imbecile puppet to run is (a) no longer a Tory, meaning the committee is now not majority Tory, and (b) will have literally no reason whatsoever to support Johnson, given the removal of the whip means he’s out of a job at the next election.

And just before the publication of the Russia report, which I suspect will now be considerably less redacted that it otherwise would have been.

Outstanding work.

A pedant writes: majority now 78, isn't it? One down for the Government, one up for the opposition?
