Quote of the day 25th March 2017

"It's not just on stilts, it's on telegraph poles."

John Rentoul of the Independent responds to the suggestion that the idea of Emily Thornberry standing for the Deputy Leadership of the Labour party was "nonsense on stilts."

(The original tweet from Emma Burnell had pointed out that having the Labour leader and deputy leader both from Islington wasn't a good idea. John Rentoul pointed out that Emily Thornberry would also need nominating signatures from 50 Labour MPs or MEPs to challenge sitting deputy leader Tom Watson and "she hasn't got them.")
