The resignation of Andrea Leadsom as leader of the Commons has left Theresa May’s government on the brink of collapse. She stepped down from her cabinet role on Wednesday in “yet another devastating blow for the prime minister”, says PoliticsHome, as bookmakers slashed the odds of May leaving office before the end of June to 4/6. Leadsom was due to announce when the prime minister’s Withdrawal Agreement Bill – the legislation needed to implement the agreement between the UK and EU – would be introduced, but revealed that she could not do it as she did not believe in the plan. She has also indicated she could throw her hat into the ring to succeed May, having dramatically pulled out of the last leadership race in 2016, handing the keys to Downing Street to her rival. What did she do before politics? Leadsom's pre-politics career was in finance, as a banker and fund manager. Aged 30, she was financial institutions director for Barclays and so had a … [Read more...] about Who is Andrea Leadsom?

While Westminster sizzles with intrigue as Theresa May’s troubled premiership finally teeters on the brink of collapse, Mr Stride’s widely interpreted role as an unofficial advocate for Environment Secretary Michael Gove’s expected, but as yet undeclared, leadership push is to the fore. Mr Stride’s rise from the relative political backwater of being Paymaster General to becoming Leader of the … [Read more...] about Mel Stride: The tour guide who took over the Commons

Conrad got a bum deal and spent three and a half years behind bars for charges I always believed to be phoney, most of which were overturned. Never mind. One can’t get back the years wasted in a cell for as good a mind as Conrad’s, but one does emerge from the pokey stronger. The Big Bagel Times reported the Black pardon in a manner that can only be described as constipated. Black is a conservative, which is a red flag to envious lefties. But there’s something else. I have spoken to medical experts about the envy shown by lefty hacks, and I have been told that its origin is not only ideological, but also physical. British hacks and their American counterparts, I have been assured, enjoy a bowel movement only two to three times per month. They are full of … [Read more...] about My feud with Conrad Black
