iPhone : Ah, October 31st. Brexit day!

Actually, just another haunting spectre of a missed deadline, to add to the ghosts of March 31st and April 12th. 👻 🎃 🧙‍♀️

iPhone : Last week a man pleaded guilty to sending me a death threat. It was so serious he was remanded in custody & committed to Sheffield Cr Ct for sentence. First I knew was when he sent me a letter apologising from prison. That’s the 5th & most go unreported by the media. ..…

iPhone : On our #ITVActingPM podcast we have tried to bust the myth that MPs are “all the same” - a common source of distrust. Not saying they deserve an easy ride - we must hold them to account - but I do think we need to be more discerning about their motivations…

iPhone : Paul, It's appalling but all too common. As a society we need to reassert the truth that almost everyone in politics, locally or nationally, gets involved to make life better for people. You can disagree fiercely on policy but accept your opponent's integrity & good faith.…

iPhone : The MP in question has just sent me this message. Read in her own words just how overwhelming the abuse has become. 2000 abusive messages this week alone.

Twitter Web App : Given the efforts to get more women in to politics, we should be particularly concerned by the number now leaving Parliament and citing abuse as a major contributing factor.…

Twitter Web App : Just bumped into an MP in floods of tears and distress about the sheer volume of abuse she's had this week. Hundreds of messages including "you stupid fat bitch."

If this is you, then just know that you pollute our politics and make it a misery - that isn't how you get good MPs.

iPhone : BREAKING: Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan becomes the latest high profile Conservative to announce she is standing down. Not sure what it says about direction Boris Johnson is taking the party that even his own cabinet are quitting.…

Twitter Web App : Confirmed: Tomorrow MPs will be asked to approve the six-month suspension for Keith Vaz as recommended by the Standards Committee but as Esther Webber
reports, he could end up only serving three days of the ban.…

Twitter Web App : NEW: Jo Swinson tells me Lib Dems will not go into government with either Labour or Conservatives

iPhone : Some minor heckling from bystanders who shout “chuck Chuka” and “Jo Swinson have you made your mind up yet?”

Twitter Web App : NEW: Understand Labour's NEC will meet next Wednesday to decide some vital selection issues ahead of election, including...

- Can Keith Vaz / Chris Williamson stand?
- What happens to MPs part way through trigger process e.g. Roger Godsiff? Can they stand?

iPhone : This portrait hangs outside my Commons office. A titan of British politics, and one of my political heroes.

Ive had some real is this happening? moments as an MP - a lift across London in the back of Kens car as he smoked his cigar and regaled me with stories one of the best

iPhone : EXCL: I got a phonecall. It was Buckingham Palace asking me was I available to speak to the Duchess of Sussex.

Meghan Duchess of Sussex called Holly Lynch MP this morning to say thank you. It comes after the Halifax MP sent her a cross-party letter of solidarity from female MPs.
