David Gauke: Whatever briefings from Downing Street may claim, an election fought on a No Deal platform would be disastrous
Let me give seven examples of principles that most Conservatives would support. I struggle to reconcile them with those pursuing a No Deal Brexit at any cost.
James Frayne: Why a populist programme wouldn’t work for Johnson. Working class voters aren’t values votes.
Middle class hostility to the working class and lower middle class is common, while working class and lower middle class hostility is practically non-existent.
WATCH: “The heroism, courage and sacrifice of those that lost their lives will never be forgotten” – the Queen commemorates D-Day
“When I attended the commemoration of the 60th anniversary, some thought it might be the last…but the wartime generation, my generation, is resilient.”
Between the idea and the reality, between the motion and the act, falls the shadow.
The Moggcast. Why British “fair play” could lead the Queen to send for Corbyn if the Government loses a confidence vote.
“I’m not interested in being an irreconcilable…the leadership question is settled.” Rees-Mogg accepts defeat – but reserves the right to differ over policy.
Jonathan Clark: Is it time to sweep away our political parties – and clear the decks for Leave v Remain?
The electorate are less and less convinced by such arguments about party identity and destiny. Far underground, the tectonic plates are moving.
It is an extremely tough task to prepare to be a constitutional monarch, or indeed to take on the actual role.
The Moggcast. “We’re getting to the point where you wonder whether the Government really wants to leave at all.”
He fears that while “the Government’s words remain robust, its deeds become weak”. Plus: the Rees-Mogg family spent the Royal wedding playing “sermon cricket”.
The Government should consider setting up a domestic policy Cabinet sub-committee to help alleviate the Brexit bandwidth problem.
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Parliament is not, should not be and probably cannot be a faithful reflection of the flux that confuses us in daily life.
What about those who worship different gods, those who delight in civil rights movements, those mothers who want to go out to work?
A dogmatic, utopian insistence on imposing the American model wholesale often runs contrary to establishing stability, growth, and the rule of law.
The Labour leader’s years of indulging the IRA, who murdered the Duke of Edinburgh’s uncle, should not be forgotten.
