NEW: Former leadership candidate @SamGyimah says there are more than thirty Tory MPs who will support legislative methods to block the new PM going for a no deal Brexit #ridge
@SamGyimah This tallies with what my colleague @tamcohen was told earlier this week - that the Chancellor was leading a 30 strong group of MPs to thwart a no deal Brexit:

But @SamGyimah says he would not vote against the next Tory govt in a confidence motion. However he says he knows some colleagues who are considering it. He isn't commenting on whether there are enough for the govt to fall though #ridge

Boris Johnson claims that "F*ck business" and all his racist and homophobic comments are just things that were "taken out of context". But there's no context in which a phrase like "tank-topped bum boys" is anything other than extraordinarily offensive. #ridge

Ann Widdecombe, on gay conversation therapy: "The fact that we now think it's quite impossible for people to switch sexuality doesn't mean that science may not yet produce an answer at some stage." Sick, sick, sick!!!! #Ridge
She then went on to dig that hole much, much deeper. I won't quote all of it. But if you really feel you must suffer through it, I'm sure it will be online soon.

Sam Gyimah just announced he will be joining the Tory leadership race, taking them to a baker's dozen. He wants an explicit final say on the Brexit deal, ie a second referendum. But as the interviewer points out, that sadly means he will never get chosen. #ridge
He states that his referendum would have 3 options on the ballot paper:
- Remain
- Theresa May's deal
- No deal
He then goes on to say that he would personally vote Remain out of those 3 options, but would not actively campaign for that option.

Another Sunday morning of political interviews trundles past and the national crisis shambles ever onwards.
But now at least our jaded palates can recoil from the incredible non-tastiness of the Conservative leadership challenge.
I see no reason why this should not be organised on a sort of Krypton Factor basis, as middle aged readers may remember.

*FINAL* Guide to pro-Remain Tactical Voting at the European Elections

The aim of the guide is to maximise the pro-Remain vote so that it produces the highest possible number of MEPs.

#marr #ridge #pienaar #bbcsp #WestminsterHour #bbcnews #BBCPolitics #C4News #itvnews #skynews
Since we're trying to maximise the number of MEPs won by pro-remain parties, that means voting for the parties that have the best chance of getting MEPs, not necessarily those you usually support. Brexit's the massive issue that's front and centre this time around.
Brexit trumps party loyalty. It trumps past grudges. It trumps everything. This isn't a winner-takes-all general election. Nobody's forming a government on the back of this. But it's a chance to send a loud, clear message.

Nigel Farage shouldn't be allowed to say he wants to "stop discrimination against people from India etc" (migration) when his Brexit campaign was about stopping people coming from Asian countries even though they had NOTHING TO DO WITH BREXIT!
#Ridge @SophyRidgeSky @RidgeOnSunday
COME ON! We have 2 weeks to save the UK from becoming the "Farage country" in the eyes of the world. If he wins the #EuropeanElections2019
a) We're leaving with May's deal
b) Millions of Non-Racist Brits will have voted for a racist party so the conversation will get MUCH worse
I am a nobody who went from zero to 160,000 because I exposed what this man is. It's in the media's INTEREST to do the same.
So do it!!

Rebecca Long-Bailey refuses to say that a second referendum is a Labour red line in their negotiations with the Tories. Witters on and on about all the jobs-first Brexit unicorn fluffy stuff. #Ridge
Stop messing around, and vote for an unashamedly pro-Remain party instead...
Several thousand words later, RLB still hasn't committed to anything. Preview of Tuesday's manifesto?

One chilling commonality struck me about nearly all the political interviews on #Ridge and #marr this morning: MP after MP talking as if Brexit's something way off in the distance, rather than the brick wall our economy is about to shatter itself on in just *5 days time*!
Only Jess Phillips and Caroline Lucas showed more than a flicker of recognition at the impending nature of our doom. But it is extremely arrogant to expect the EU will simply roll over and extend Article 50 for no reason. They know Theresa May's capable of wasting infinite time.
So we might get a temporary reprieve. But we need to behave as if we won't. MPs must act now, immediately, without hesitation. Another 48 hours and it will be too late for Parliament to impose revocation, even as the last last last resort. The legal processes just take too long.

Let's make them famous!
"Conservative leadership candidates Boris Johnson and Michael Gove are facing growing calls to account for illegal behaviour by the official Vote Leave Brexit campaign.
#marr #ridge #pienaar #bbcsp
theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/m…
Background... At exactly the same time things were reaching a peak on Brexit-Day-that-wasn't, this happened: "Vote Leave has dropped its appeal against a £61,000 fine for electoral offences committed during the Brexit referendum."
theguardian.com/politics/2019/…
Re. Vote Leave: "This is the group that has met every day during the campaign to plot strategy and decide on the messages to put out to the media."
Within that group:
- Michael Gove
- Boris Johnson
- Gisela Stuart
So BJ & MG were meeting *daily* with VL!

Esther McVey states on #ridge that she will be voting for Theresa May's deal because no-deal has been taken off the table. Even though she also maintains that TM's deal is a bad deal. Cognitive dissonance at its finest.
She also brushes aside the suggestion that an A50 extension would give an opportunity for negotiating a better deal, stating that because no-deal is now off the table, we won't be able to negotiate better because our leverage is gone.
Ok, here's her "logic": we stood on a manifesto saying that no deal is better than a bad deal. Theresa May's deal is a bad deal. So we should have left with no deal to meet the manifesto commitment.

Barry Gardiner says that antisemitism in Labour is down to a tiny, tiny minority of party members. That's like claiming that having a tiny, tiny minority of urine in drinking water leaves that water drinkable. #Ridge
(Note: people have quite fairly commented that a bit of urine wouldn't make it undrinkable. True. But knowing it was there and not doing everything possible to filter it out is a PR nightmare.)

Chuka Ummuna calls for "proper proportional representation" on Ridge on Sunday. #Ridge

That will appeal to a lot of people!
It's possible to imagine that TIG might pick up most of the votes that would normally go to the Greens, Libdems, even UKIP, etc. for one GE anyway, because of the possibility of getting the grand prize of PR out of it. Remember, PR benefits every party bar the Tories and Labour.
You should also bear in mind that votes under PR might distribute themselves very differently than now, because there's no longer any need to "hold your nose" and vote for a party you're not fully in tune with, just because the one you agree with has no chance of winning.
