    Just got in from a great night out with some sailing friends and I notice that the voting went 323 to 309.

    Now I'm not well "self-read" and sadly quite uneducated, but using the calculator on my iPhone13+ I figure that deducting the 10 DUP votes that still leaves 313 to 309.

    Anyway, leaving all that aside because I'm probably wrong, I also see that 49 Labour MPs defied Corbyn and voted against a party amendment. I guess those were the ones who didn't get tickets to Glastonbury.

    Off to bed, I'm clearly drunk on all that champagne the yatching club kindly provided for our little party tonight.

    Zzzzzz

    Bloody heck, Jezza has sacked two of the rebels and a shadow minister has resigned! Gosh he must be missing the vibe of last weekend.

    Marvellous time last night with the chaps.

    Btw, how's your counting up the Tory councils coming along in the "Tory crime" notion? I see there are hundreds of similar buildings where the local council will have probably fitted the same cladding to save costs. I'm sure they are all Tory decisions, don't worry.

    7 out of 10 councils were Labour, apparently.

    You should check there is not a deficit in your reading comprehension.

    I'm sure it will be pointed out to me.
