Sunak brought to book over absences from Parliament

Yes, the clip is six and a half minutes long, but watch it and enjoy Rishi Sunak’s discomfort at being reminded of his personal failures and cowardices in finding excuses not to turn up at Parliament for vote after vote.

Here’s a graphic showing part of the PM’s shame – courtesy of the Guido Fawkes blog that was once so staunchly in support of a Tory government:

Poll shows Jeremy Corbyn is now the most popular recent Labour leader

Mhairi Black is quitting as an MP at next general election

Lords overturn government on Migration Bill – 11 TIMES

Yes, the Lords inflicted 11 defeats. Notably, they voted against government plans to weaken detention limits for children and pregnant women in its migration bill, and to ban the deportation of LGBT migrants to nations including Rwanda.

The reversals may themselves be reversed when the Bill goes back to the Commons – but Suella Braverman and her PM Rishi Sunak face the possibility of rebellion from among their own ranks.

    This is one of the many reasons why the House Of Lords should remain, it does need a clear-out though due to the Johnsonite regime but a lot of what they do does benefit the UK.
