UK Supreme Court justices and lawyers appearing have long since dispensed with court dress.
@stellacreasy I'd scrap Judicial Appointments Commissars and open up the judicial oligarchy we have in this [...]

Then and Now

Perhaps Sturgeon’s Law should be applied to any public statements by the SNP. Nicola Sturgeon is actively considering the possibility of investigating the means of opposing Theresa May’s appeal against the High Court’s ruling that control has been taken back for the Commons and the Executive does not have free-rein with Royal Prerogative.
The rule of [...]

Richard Burgon gives the game away

You said it!
Alec adds: Burgon is the 2015 intake MP who, 11 days after a Labour MP was murdered in the street by a literally mad political opponent, attended a mad rally in Parliament Square.

No context. No obvious – or even covert – expression of disgust for, you know, the sleaze responsibly. Just a prurient link to the video of this appalling instance.
I would say this does not meet any public interest criteria. What a bunch of cockweasels.

Mhairi Black: more popular than the Alex Salmond?

THIS IS A GUEST POST BY POLITICAL JENGA.
I’m an avid Twitter user and routinely browse through the “SNP” hashtag to keep up with the latest news of how wonderful the Scottish National Party (SNP) are and how bad everyone else is.
One particular tweet caught my eye. Dated 15 July, it was from Paul Monaghan (Caithness, [...]
