Two by-elections were held on Thursday in Labour seats – with the party holding Stoke-on-Trent Central but losing Copeland.

“We’re in this position now of surrealism, of an Orwellian world unfolding before us,” Paul Flynn said, “where the theme that has been put forward by Trump is that lies are the truth, that good is bad, that war is peace, that fantasy is fact.”
The former leader is pressuring Paul Nuttall to adopt a more Trump-esque tone on immigration – but some of those around the new UKIP leader insist that approach will only limit the party’s appeal.

“An address by a foreign leader to both houses of parliament is not an automatic right, it is an earned honour,” announced John Bercow, the Speaker of the House of Commons.
“Sweden is a feminist government and this is a very important law that we just decided on.”
When the prime minister has had enough of carrying her bag, you damn well take it.
The Labour leader ordered his party’s politicians to vote in favour of legislation paving the way for Brexit – but 47 MPs defied the three-line whip.
