Margaret Hodge, collecting Speech of the Year award: “My father tried to make me Jewish and failed. The local rabbi tried to make me Jewish and failed. It took the Leader of the Labour Party to do that” #SpecAwards— Tom Newton Dunn (@tnewtondunn) November 28, 2018

Politicians definitely have some screws loose, grinning over an award for resigning is nothing to be proud of!Cabinet Resignation of the Year, shared by Dominic Raab and David Davis - @FraserNelson: “The first 2 Brexit Secretaries of 2018” #SpecAwards pic.twitter.com/cSjgWkaYB1— Tom Newton Dunn (@tnewtondunn) November 28, 2018

Bizarrely, May might have actually judged the public's mood correctly (for once); namely that people are fed up/despairing over the continued uncertainty, and need this to be settled so that they can move on with their lives.Some really interesting results in Survation poll today re: attitudes to the Brexit deal:— Dom Walsh (@DomWalsh13) November 28, 2018
- Voters support the deal 41%-37% - a huge +10 swing from 2 weeks ago
- Voters, incl. plurality of Leavers + Remainers, want MPs to vote for the deal (Leavers 48-36; Remainers 46-38)
Unfortunately, May's deal (if it does pass) is but one step forward on a very long and winding road!
She is of course correct, Treasury forecasts are bollocks!This is what Theresa May told me on Monday about today's Brexit forecasts. Basically, don't trust them, especially if they say staying in the EU is better than my deal. I wonder if @HMTreasury agrees with her? pic.twitter.com/S1vV5a0zGi— Tom Newton Dunn (@tnewtondunn) November 28, 2018

Trump is openly gunning for a no-deal Brexit and for a populist like Boris Johnson or Rees-Mogg to finish off Theresa May. This is full Bannonism. Not the behavior of an ally.— Edward Luce (@EdwardGLuce) November 26, 2018

Current state of UK politics:— Larry the Cat (@Number10cat) November 20, 2018
Government so inept it’s lost the DUP votes that have been propping it up.
Opposition so inept that despite the Government not having a majority the Government still won a vote last night.
Backbenchers so inept they can’t count to 48.

REUTERS: BREXIT: DOWNING STREET OFFICIAL SAYS PM MAY EXPECTED TO MAKE STATEMENT OUTSIDE HER OFFICE FOLLOWING CABINET MEETING APPROX 1700 GMT— Sam Coates Times (@SamCoatesTimes) November 14, 2018

David Davis - tipped as a successor to Theresa May - tonight: "This is the moment of truth ... Cabinet and all Conservative MPs should stand up, be counted and say no to this capitulation." #BrexitDeal https://t.co/3H01SZ7g09— Christopher Hope (@christopherhope) November 13, 2018
Whilst Davis may well be right about May's plan, and whilst it is also quite possible she will fail and be kicked out of office, his belief (or rather his media chum's belief) that he will be leader is a bit of a stretch!

John Whittingdale: “If the deal doesn’t get through Parliament it is almost impossible to see how she can continue.”— Harry Cole (@MrHarryCole) November 11, 2018
....and yet, despite all the predictions that she will go, she clings on to power and doesn't even seem to be enjoying it!

Jeremy Wright says that Tracey Crouch is absent from DCMS questions because she's on the way back from the US and it seemed 'unwise' to rely on public transport or roads to get her in on time— Steven Swinford (@Steven_Swinford) November 1, 2018
