It was later revealed that the Cabinet had also to hand over their mobile phones whilst they were in Number 10. We also learn that 14 of the 24 disagreed with her course of action, but were overruled.

A BBC news report says: `The Daily Telegraph accuses the PM of ignoring the will of her cabinet by ruling out a no-deal Brexit. On its front page it carries the photos of 14 ministers who - it claims - "implored her" to keep no deal on the table. The paper's story has been disputed by another minister, Claire Perry, who says only four cabinet members spoke explicitly in favour of no extension and no deal. She says the story is based on "totally inaccurate leaks from a colleague behaving reprehensibly".'

The more rabid Tories are acting terribly. I am the first to admit Corbyn's faults as I see them but he and May are engaged in an essential process and it would be best if self indulgent vituperation was kept in check. I am convinced they are driven by ignorance and fear, they have obviously not read and understood Marx and can see the writing on the wall that stems from Cameron's Catastrophe.

The Prime Minster was in Pendle today, though I've seen nothing of the visit on TV or my usual on line places. I found out about it from the Guardian comments on their website. She does get about doesn't she? :smile:

The Leader In Name Only(LINO) was in the North West, today, electioneering for the Local Elections.

She visited an Activity Centre in Pendle - where, last year, the Tories took the Council for the first time in thiry, odd, years, by readmitting a couple of delinquent ex-Tory Councillors back into the Party, at the eleventh hour, giving them a Majority of one.
Before she arrived at the Centre, the local riff-raff were ejected and some bright, shiny, well-fed and well-scrubbed kids were bussed in, to add Tory ambience to the place.
Much later, the riff-raff were re-admitted and permitted to continue with their activities and to rummage through the bins to see if they could find any left-overs, from LINO's visit.

It wasn't the West Craven (Barlick) one or you would have known about it and it wasn't Colne otherwise they would have stopped me going in, undesirable riff-raff. Anyhow, Colne is the one the Tories want to privatize or close down and that wouldn't do would it? But looking on the bright side at least she's not organising some Brexit deal.

It was Brierfield which I have on good authority from other party activists was more or less on lockdown during her visit.

I guess he was hoping that a little of Mrs May's magic electoral dust would rub off on him. :laugh5:

God alone knows what the strategy was behind the visit. I would have thought that sorting Brexminster out was the most important task at the moment. Governance seems to be totally paralysed.

I'd suggest they have a large supply of 'dead cats' to throw on the table. I think this is just the latest. It seems to have had the desired effect. :smile:

Come on Stanley, in St. Theresa's mind it IS all sorted, they just have to vote for her dead deal. :biggrin2:

Yup! That's her problem! In my mind's eye, the present situation is like watching one of those Youtube videos where you know the defective bridge is going to collapse under the weight of traffic. When it happens it's always sudden and catastrophic.....Not long now and it will be spectacular.

I agree, but we seem to have been waiting to be a long time for whatever it will be. They've raised 'can kicking' to an art form. :smile:

From a BBC News story this morning:
One senior Conservative also points out a rich irony here, saying: "A government that governs by open leaking then sacks someone for not being open about their leaking. We have surely moved from the incompetent to the theatre of the absurd!"
Business as usual then at Westminster!

It's time they gave Laura a new telephone. She does a great job reporting the news but she's now suffering from the Radio 4 disease - duff phone connections.

The standard of reliability of phone connections to studios has fallen over the years. Is it because the BBC invested in a bum system? I seem to remember them cancelling a contract but saying that it would be too expensive to replace the system.

It's probably due to the incoming calls from staff, interviewees and commentators being on skype and mobile phones rather than what the BBC is using in its centres. We can make perfect calls to the other side of the world on conventional phones but too many people put up with duff connections so they can make calls from mobile gadgets or computers.
