Quote of the day 7th July 2016

"There are all the difficulties of getting round the Fixed Term Parliament act.

The government would have to call a vote of no confidence in itself.

And given its small majority there is the hilarious prospect that that it could call a vote of no confidence in itself and lose."

(Danny Finkelstein writing in The Times about the mechanics of calling an early general election, part of an article called "If Leadsom wins, we must have an election.")
