Whoever’s idea it was it was a mistake

The basic fact is that you don’t launch moves like this unless you are going to win. I’ve never been a fan of Bercow but to use what amounted to procedural trickery flew in the face of the way the House operates.

What’s clear is that he emerges stronger from this failed attempt. He’s now there as long as he wants.

Surely the best thing would have been to have done this in the open winning support for an idea that Bercow himself had called for in the past.

I only wish I’d got on the Bercow will survive bets.

Reminder: PB gathering March 17th at 7pm

The next PB get-together will take place on Tuesday March 17th from 7pm at the Shooting Star in Middlesex Street. As the map below shows this is just round the corner from our normal venue, Dirty Dicks. We are hoping that this will be less crowded and noisy than the pre-Christmas bash. Thanks to Fat Steve for finding the new venue.

There are also plans for overnight May 7/8 – details soon.

    Tonight’s cartoon from Marf (on Sir Malcolm of course) and the evening polling thread

    Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

    Two polls due this evening. Survation for the Mirror and the usual YouGov. They’ll be posted here as soon as they are out.

    Last month Survation had CON 31, LAB 30, LD 7, UKIP 23, GRN 3. Last YpouGov had CON & LAB tied.

    UPDATE LAB moves from 1% behind to 6% ahead in tonight’s Survation/Mirror poll


    Thee was a slightly smaller lead, check the third box on the chart, when sample was asked “The General Election is on 7 May 2015. Thinking specifically about your constituency and the parties and candidates likely to be in contention, how do you think you will vote on 7 May”

    Whatever a really good poll for LAB from one of the pollsters that last month had the Tories ahead

    UPDATE 2 CON 2% ahead in latest YouGov poll
