This isn’t even that event of journalistic legend – small earthquake, not many dead. It is a tremor that barely registers on the seismograph.
If we do not leave the E.U. on terms that are acceptable to the members of the Party, large numbers will leave it. Here’s how we got here.
Also: Davidson calls for ’emotion bonds’ of the Union to be strengthened; SNP face tough choices on independence ‘summer offensive’; and more.
That’s what Sarah Wollaston suggested on my show this week. Plus: my prison visit, sticking by your friends…and sticking with spending control in the Budget.
Also: Brokenshire sets Good Friday deadline for talks as UUP elect new leader; and Welsh Tories regain second place as Reckless ‘re-rats’ from UKIP.
Also: Davidson attacks SNP’s efforts to deepen divisions over Brexit; and the Welsh Conservatives criticise Labour’s bid to overturn new trade union laws.
Also: Scottish Tories win Labour defection and pitch for more; Welsh Labour attacked by Plaid for backing Conservatives on the Single Market; and more.
It’s letting Labour off the hook and exposing itself to Conservative counter-attack. Is SNP-style phalanx discipline essential to nationalist success?
Also: Davies defends Johnson; Fox’s bid to quit EU customs union heightens Irish border concerns; Brexit fails to boost Scottish separatism; and more.
The latest on the UKIP leaders’ love-in.
He used to be a Conservative MP, was destroyed by the cash-for-questions affair, but has risen, quite unexpectedly, from the political grave.
Also: Welsh Conservatives lack ‘appetite’ for leadership change; a bad night for nationalism in Northern Ireland, Neil Hamilton wins leadership of UKIP AMs; and more.
The election to the Welsh Assembly of the former Conservative MP may be a sign that the UKIP leader’s command of his party is on the wane.
Plus: Obama: so that went well, then. Scotland: will it go well for Davidson? Wales – it may go well for Neil Hamilton (remember him).
Plus: Farage knifes Hamilton. Hopeless Miliband. Useless Clegg. Truth from Phibbs. Katz among the pigeons. And: I’m forever, forever, forever blowing bubbles.
