I’m looking forward to helping put some local and national issues on the table when I make mine later today.
We suggest that the state coach wends its way from Buckingham Palace to York along the slow lane of the A1 – via Finchley Road, Brent Cross and the Doncaster by-pass.
A vote by MPs is the only sensible way to resolve the matter one way or the other – assuming that the £500,000 target is reached.
If 50,000 people each gave £10, we’d hit our target. Please, Brexiteers – help us outmanoeuvre the Establishment again, and mark the occasion in style.
We republish a personal Tory manifesto first published by this site almost exactly five years ago.
The Government should allow MPs the chance to vote on letting the bells ring out from this iconic tower.
Boris Johnson’s Withdrawal Agreement has cleared its final hurdle in the House of Commons after MPs voted to give a Third Reading to the European Union Withdrawal Agreement Bill by 330 votes to 231, a majority of 99. 330 MPs voted for the Bill (332 if you include the two tellers), all of whom were […]

Sir Edward Leigh is leading a charge of MPs against parliamentary authorities over the seizure of Library rooms C and D for parliamentary office space. Guido noted disquiet from MPs over the move last year which is coming as the Norman Shaw North office building effectively shuts down for renovation in six months time. In […]

New Labour’s project of divesting power from the Commons cannot be reversed unless MPs are prepared to take up those responsibilities again.
This new government seems to want to concentrate its energies on a particular end. Will it succeed where others have failed?
If you agree, then I urge you to write to your MP and ask them to sign Early Day Motion No. 2 as well.
The House of Commons has voted to give a Second Reading to the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill by 358 votes to 234, a majority of 124 (although the division lists show that there were in fact 359 MPs who voted in the Aye lobby, meaning that in fact there was a majority of 125). 359 […]
He also paid tribute to the MPs from his party particularly who lost their seats in the General Election.
The Prime Minister tells the first sitting of the new Parliament this Government will reach out across the House to find common ground and heal divisions.
In his foreword to our new Policy Exchange paper, John Howard urges the Prime Minister to “seize the moment”.
There is a separate-but-related debate on whether the number of seats should also be reduced.
To view Britain in such a way is to see a useless picture of the nation. Most people are Just About Managing. And they are our new voters.
Don’t expect Downing Street to bother too much about what MPs or the media think as it prepares to shake up government.
In 2010, Eric Pickles gave my intake the benefit of his experience. Now, in turn, I offer a few lessons I’ve picked up.
The stakes in this election are incredibly high for all of us who have fought long and hard for Brexit. We have resurgent Liberal Democrats who think nothing of simply cancelling the result of the largest ever vote for any single issue ever held in this country. Didn’t happen, just ignore it and carry on […]

Ths is the first of a three-part mini-series on the judges, public policy and the election.
This Commons has been excoriated over Brexit, but nothing becomes it like its ending. By putting Hoyle and Bryant in the final, it turned its back on the Bercow era.
But Laing’s 127 votes have to divide roughly five to one if he is to beat Hoyle – who therefore remains favourite.
Laing has 122 votes, Bryant 120. Unless the candidates who withdraw transfer disproportionately to one of them, Hoyle seems to be home and dry.
Our businesses have the ingenuity, skills and talent to succeed, but they need to know what the future will hold before they can invest, hire and deliver.
The result of a general election next month would by no means be a foregone conclusion.
I fear that we would lose too many good colleagues to a Remain coalition in the south, and would not pick up enough Leave-voting seats in the midlands and the north.
“They believe their own propaganda. It’s central to their worldview that every Leave voter is a thicko.”
This is Ireland’s deal as much as the UK’s. So the Taoiseach has an interest in assisting the Prime Minister over extension.
