@resurgentsheep  If political reporters didn’t care about the relationship between the PM and his most senior aide we wouldn’t be doing our jobs properly

I know I’m the last person in the UK to hear this. But it really is every bit as good as people say — the brilliant @laurenlaverne  talking to the superb @IanWright0 ...what a storyteller he is @BBCRadio4  @BBCSounds

BREAKING: a motion of no confidence in Leader of the Parliamentary Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn has been tabled

Oooof. Former Conservative MP Sir Nicholas Soames on Leader of the House Jacob Rees Mogg@thetimes : ‘an absolute fraud, a living example of what a moderately cut double-breasted suit and a decent tie can do with an ultra-posh voice and a bit of ginger stuck up his arse.’

Conservative MP Dominic Grieve: "What is the purpose of this government? What is it doing? How are we contributing to the national interest? Government credibility is running out, trust in it is running out."

. @NickBoles  tells @bbclaurak  this is the "worst cabinet in my lifetime and probably in recorded history."

On the subject of the Conservative Conference app breach, I've now been texted by a Tory source who clearly didn't mean to text me, describing what has happened as "a shit show." #cpc18
