Boris Johnson is a ‘left-wing Tory’ claims an old ally on Political Thinking podcast. Defence Secretary Ben Wallace warns the Service chiefs to spend what they’ve got properly before demanding more £s & tells them “your appetite has to match your stomach”

Challenging & thought provoking edit of @BBCr4today  by Charles Moore as all our guest editors have been. Next up @GretaThunberg 

What have you done Dead Ringers?! One minute you’re on @BBCRadio4  describing me as a “human roll-on deodorant”. The next I get this on the family WhatsApp 😳🤨

I’ve heard it all now. The Brexit Secretary has just voted against the motion that he’d just been arguing for. Anyone got a better word than Omnishambles?

Thought for the day : Those you disagree with aren’t enemies or traitors. They don’t deserve to be “knifed or lynched or hanged”. They are just people you disagree with. Those who report news you don’t like aren’t fake or frauds or enemies of the people. They are just reporters.

Trump’s attack on ’s Jim Acosta is an attack on the right of all journalists everywhere to ask tough questions of people in power. That’s our job

Serve your country. Do your duty. Give your political masters what they demand. Get thrown to the wolves. The shoddy treatment of @KimDarroch  will have a chilling effect on the quality of advice the next Prime Minister receives

You know what ? Football did come home - brought us together, made us proud, gave us something to cheer 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Not long ago @jeremycorbyn  faced a crisis trapped between Remainers & Leavers and was shunned by other opposition parties. Now he’s able to stand up for democracy, work with a cross-party alliance & appear statesmanlike. Is that what people mean by No 10’s new strategic genius?

Now clear why Boris kept off air this week. Leave's promises - to get back £350m, to slash immigration & to have cake & eat it - all binned

That new Boris Brexit plan in full : * Leave "come what may" on 31/10 * Rip up deal EU spent 3 years negotiating * Agree new deal giving us no tariffs & no backstop & them less money * Hope Brussels, EU 27 & MPs find some "positive energy" & don't say "you've got to be kidding"
