Interesting thing. Someone’s just pointed out that almost all the staff who were on the Durham trip with Keir have since left his office. You know how all the witnesses to the Kennedy assassination died or disappeared in mysterious circumstances….

Watching people seriously trying to discuss Boris’s cabinet appointments tonight is like that moment when they discuss the Steiner attack in the Downfall video.

The argument a Prime Minister who broke the criminal law didn’t break the rules is an interesting one. Especially from the self-styled party of law and order…
It’s truly amazing that MPs who (wrongly) claim the PM ‘broke the rules’ are now competing to be elected to the ‘22 committee so that they can be given the chance to… break the rules.

Interesting thing tonight. Still a few Tory MPs who genuinely seem to think we’ve had the worse of the Pincher revelations. A brave assumption.

The man who was put in charge of fixing Boris Johnson’s Downing Street is now in charge of the nation’s healthcare. So that’s good…

Told that this evening Tory associations are being contacted by CCHQ to ensure their membership lists are up to date. As I said earlier, things will move fast.

Boris is going to be forced from office because he tried to cover for a man guilty of sexual harassment. Cabinet Ministers contemplating statements of loyalty should reflect on that.

Let’s just reflect on the degree of devilment required to finally convince Rishi Sunak it’s time to resign…

“It is clear to me this situation will not change under your leadership”. That’s the killer line. Because it’s true.

I have spoken to the Prime Minister to tender my resignation as Secretary of State for Health & Social Care. It has been an enormous privilege to serve in this role, but I regret that I can no longer continue in good conscience.

Boris refuses to deny he said “Pincher by name pincher by nature”. Because he said it. Because he knew. As we reported on Sunday.

Reminder that Pincher was specifically appointed because he helped shore Boris up earlier this year…
NEW: Understand Boris Johnson due to meet his more supportive MPs - those who helped shore him up earlier this year - at 6pm this evening

Even if this were to happen (and the House would need to vote on it) the 1922 committee and its workings are not constrained to the House sitting. Proxy votes can also be used.
Some Tory MPs now speculating Boris might try to bring recess forward to head off new contest.
