Tories Increase Lead Over Labour

It shows how bad the state of things are in the UK, when the worst government in living memory (and I do remember a few!) manages to increase its lead over the opposition.

That being said, Labour should not be too downhearted, if the Tories go into the next election with May as leader she will undoubtedly erase the lead PDQ!

Hammond Is Financially Illiterate

As per The Spectator:
"There are some in the cabinet who still loathe Brexit and regard Chequers as the UK’s opening offer. Philip Hammond, the Chancellor, is expected to push to stay in the customs union and makes no attempt to disguise his concerns about Brexit. 

In cabinet meetings this week, he complained that a restaurant in his Surrey constituency can’t hire enough staff to wait all the tables — proof, he said, that the UK needed low-skilled immigration. 

But as one exasperated cabinet minister put it to me afterwards, it didn’t seem to have occurred to the Chancellor that maybe the restaurant should just pay its staff more. And that the balance of power between workers and low-wage businesses might be precisely why so many voted for Brexit in the first place."
Philip, economies are not just supply sided they are also demand driven. Market forces will sort out the imbalance of low skilled EU workers, one way or another!

Labour's Fake Teacher

Seemingly his LinkedIn profile claims he is a poet and musician, but not a teacher. Oddly, the profile has now disappeared and he has deleted his Twitter account!

May To Make Emeregency Statement To Parliament Today

It will be an update about the Russian assassinations/murders in Salisbury.

Corbyn Hiding From The Facts of Life

The Times reports that Jeremy Corbyn has been summoned for a personal briefing by the head of MI5 on the terrorist threat to Britain amid questions about his approach to national security.

Andrew Parker, the director-general of the Security Service, is expected to give the Labour leader a “full briefing” on the threat from Islamists in Britain and Isis jihadists returning from the Middle East to plot atrocities on home soil.

The MI5 boss also wants to prime Corbyn on the extent of hostile Russian espionage activity and the growing threat from far-right extremists.

Corbyn had been asked to attend the briefing yesterday, but he has had an attack of cold feet and postponed it.
