Tulip Siddiq seems to think she's one of her constituents?
Four different people have told me she lives in Fleet.
well they've been hauling Siddiq out to criticise Johnson when they've wanted her MP to speak on the news.
Foreign Secretary forced to retract comments over Fleet mum's jail term
That's great. Tulip Siddiq was on the telly the other night saying she was one of her constituents is all I know. I don't know why she'd be invited onto newsnight in that role unless she was, but maybe they made a mistake.
maybe she had safehouses all over the country
The one about just because divorce is legal, it isn’t compulsory (in relation to Catalonia)
Charles Moore seemed to use a couple of unarguable pieces of logic. Firstly, that if you employ lots of people to make your billions for you then you're entitled to move your money offshore. Secondly, that Boris Johnson is has greater morals than Iran's theocratic rulers, and therefore doing a great job. What a hero.
I finished watching it this evening, and it was worth it to see Moore squirm when Chakrabortty read out his 2015 piece on Labour leadership contender Yvette Cooper.
Oh, forgot to mention; Moore also told a 17 year old boy that he, the boy, had a better opinion of women than Weinstein, Fallon et al because he "hadn't experienced power yet".
I thought that was a poor attempt to express a valid point, namely that it isn’t about people being inherently good or bad but about the experiences that shape them, and there is thus a structural problem that inevitably arises when things are set up to give the likes of Weinstein unlimited power with no checks on his ability to use it.
People in the studio got hung up on the notion that Moore was saying this specific boy was a rapist in waiting, but I don’t think that was in any way his point.
I dont know why there was such tutting at that. Seemed like a very valid point and very true generally. Moore for example has had his stiff of relative journo power and look at some of the shit he wrote and spouted unopposed.
He didnt come across too badly though nonetheless, some good points made.
Im waiting for tonight's to be up on YouTube.

Everytime I watch this bloody program I'm just depressed as to how propagandised people are.
It's very disappointing that the Paradise Papers and tax reform in general seem to have disappeared from political discourse already.
It’s because it’s not sensational news. We already knew the rich evade taxes by stashing their money offshore & we already know the tories will never seriously tax the rich or seriously do anything about the rich evading taxes.
Perhaps by maintaining it in the media eye enacting some change may become electorally viable. QT revisits the many of the same topics every week. This is the appearance of the Magic Money Tree which we told didn't exist.
There's been virtually no discussion on climate change for months, even though COP23 is underway at the moment.
Credit to Abbott for explaining to Clark that sensibly regulated capitalism doesn't instantly turn a country in Cuba or Venezuela, and credit for QT for opening with "Is capitalism a bit shit?" as a first question.
Yeah was very much enjoying that! Got my vpn workin finally
Shame it got cut short. Diane Abbot wasn't too bad eh, one cringe moment when she didn't answer the direct democracy question, a real missed opportunity imo.
I'm not sure I'd come across Dreda Say Mitchell before, but she seemed relatively sensible. Her hair also deserves massive respect.
new leader of ukip say's if you been a member of britian first you cannot be part of ukip
also "loads of muslim friends"
fair play to the replacement troy...
still a cunt but hell of a preformance to follow
I don't know why they're mentioning Fleet as far as I know she and her husband live in West Hampstead which is in Siddiq's constituency.
That is where they had a rally recently at which Siddiq was questioned by Channel 4 News.
Took me a while to work it out: the mother in law lives there; and has been campaigning hard, though as I said her MP has done f.a
Gina Miller, Piers Morgan , Dawn Butler , Nish Kumar and Dominic Raab on tonights show from Islington.

I wonder how much Miller and her hedge fund hubby have to lose.
The Mcdonnell point was nicely swerved!
