It is hard to see how the different Brexit alternatives can be presented anything like as well on TV as they will be in Parliament.
Iain Dale: Why is May making her case to 35 million people won’t vote on her deal? And not to the 650 or so who will?
Plus: Keep the Brexit TV debate simple. Giving Allin-Khan and Duncan a piece of my mind. And: Carney – we’ve heard it all before.
Also: Jones accused of ‘pre-judging’ allegations against former minister as inquiry continues; and May clashes with Sturgeon over independence.
Also: Jones criticised for shielding ministers from independent scrutiny; and Mundell’s bizarre pop at ‘carpet-bagging’ colleagues.
Don’t presume anything about a Commons vote on May’s deal. Especially a second vote. If she’s still in place after a first one goes down…
Also: Scottish Tories attack SNP over income tax ‘gap’; no boost for Plaid from new leader; and DUP’s Brexit donation given a clean bill of legal health.
Also: May meets new Plaid leader in Downing Street; Bradley mulls ‘external mediator’ for devolution talks; SNP row over ‘People’s Vote’; and more.
Davidson and Mundell are right to be concerned that a differential Brexit deal for one part of the UK could put rocket boosters under SNP demands for similar treatment.
Stewart Jackson: Mendacity, duplicity, subterfuge and misjudgement. How I saw an establishment coup wreck a clean Brexit.
Number Ten has been desperate from the start that we must remain in the Customs Union – and endure a kind of semi-skimmed faux Brexit.
It isn’t just pro-Brexit MPs who should be watching the Prime Minister carefully. It’s pro-Union ones: in other words, all of them.
The SNP leader addresses the party’s annual conference in Glasgow, and also calls for “pragmatism and patience” on a second independence referendum.
She adds that Brexit brings the issues around it “very sharply into focus”.
It will help Davidson solidify her grip on the unionist base, and give swing voters minded for a change from the SNP fewer alternatives to consider.
Online they swarm when I ask for questions to Davidson: they must be frightened of her. Plus: what was May thinking? What I’ll be doing. Top 100 people on the Conservative Right. And: why Farage should quit UKIP.
