  • One question not answered by @johnmcdonnellMP in his speech is how the BT broadband nationalisation affects Labour’s pledge to keep open the option of remaining in EU. Because it is not clear to me whether it would fall foul of EU unfair competition rules

  • Crikey. Another huge “retail” offer to voters from Labour. Free broadband, funded in part by new taxes on Google, Amazon and Facebook. And delivered by a part of BT to be nationalised. Labour is blitzing giveaways, and creating enormous noise that drowns out the Brexit debate. https://t.co/ndwX4tMg5S

  • Could the malaise in the NHS deprive Boris Johnson of the election victory and majority he craves? Link

    The poor performance of the NHS relative to government targets is turning into a major headache for the PM.

    The point is that Johnson and the Vote Leave team won the EU referendum largely on the basis of their controversial promise to invest £350m a week into the health service.

    They were acutely aware that money for a public health service matters hugely to poorer people, and matters disproportionately more than for those on higher incomes - who have the double benefit of being able to afford both private healthcare and healthier lifestyles.

  • Sorry. Hancock’s statement was a fast response to the stats. Rather than pre-emptive. Even so I am not sure it will condition the narrative of long waiting times for those going to A&E
