Having noted that Labour has issues with Brexit, well, the same holds true albeit in different ways for the Tories. As the Observer notes at the weekend: The Tory party could lose the next general election if Theresa May alienates its core of moderate supporters by imitating Ukip and pushing through a hard Brexit, a […]A

Good analysis here from the Guardian on the surprise Liberal Democrat win in Richmond Park. I?m no fan of the LDs – particularly the pernicious role they played in 2010-2015 but there is some pleasure to see Goldsmith ejected from parliament. I?m not pushed one way or another about his pro-Brexit position, but his attacks […]A

…for that is what a piece in the current edition of the Phoenix points to. In the course of a profile of Brendan Howlin (rather hostile to put it mildly) it casts a cold eye on an interview he had in the Irish Times where… …he told how Labour had ditched the ‘ludicrous idea’ of […]A
