Paul Flynn thinks you're gullible

Newport West MP Paul Flynn isn't happy with a recent photo of empty Labour benches during a debate on Wales on July 11th. It's worthwhile mentioning the July 11th date again just so that people are quite aware of the date, which as you should know by now was July 11th.

Take me to your leader - 2016 edition.

Back when Labour held their leadership election last year I ran a comparison of the four horsepeople of the apocalypse that were standing. As a lot of Labour MPs clearly didn't like the results of last years contest, and because it's quite easy to do, here's the updated version featuring this years entrants.

Did your MP vote against new nukes?

The latest figure on renewing the UK's nuclear weapons stands at between £167 billion (MoD) and £205 billion (CnD) depending on whose figures you believe. Both eye watering amounts are calculated on the initial cost plus 30 years worth of upkeep.

New Prime Minister Theresa May opted to call a vote on renewing the nukes, presumably in order to piss off Scotland a bit more and as an easy way of causing further division amongst Labour.

But enough about that, let's get on with showing who voted to spend billions of pounds on weapons of mass destruction and who didn't.

Wouldn't you prefer a good game of chess?
