WHAT THEY SAY

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - On This Day -

This is the mo­ment to re­alise you are go­ing to have to work out whether it’s pos­si­ble to reach a con­sen­sus amongst the MPs and if it isn’t, you ex­clude the im­pos­si­ble and go back to the im­prob­a­ble, be­cause that’s all that will work – Tony Blair on Theresa May’s Brexit deal.

I have been prac­tis­ing my flounce, I’m not sure I have per­fected it yet –

Com­mons leader An­drea Lead­som af­ter re­ceiv­ing an apol­ogy from Barry Sheer­man who ac­cused her of “flounc­ing”.

The last time I toured I was still

smarter than my phone. Things have def­i­nitely taken a funny turn, – Ben El­ton on his re­turn to standup.

I will be keep­ing my word to my

town – Liberal Demo­crat MP Stephen Lloyd, ex­plain­ing his de­ci­sion to re­sign the party whip af­ter promis­ing con­stituents in East­bourne that he would sup­port the deal the Prime Minister brought back from the EU. I’ve had one hell of a year... the worst night­mare of my life – movie

mogul Har­vey We­in­stein.

We can see there’s no po­lit­i­cal at­trac­tion for de­ci­sion mak­ers breach­ing plan­ning pol­icy to pan­der to... an in­ter­na­tional pariah – Coun­cil­lor Martin Ford, urg­ing col­leagues to re­ject Trump In­ter­na­tional Golf Links plans for 550 homes near the US Pres­i­dent’s Aberdeen­shire course.
