Quote of the day 18th April 2018

"Last night the whips said we would vote for this motion, which is logical given it's the opposition motion. This morning we were told we had to vote against.

"You should not play games with matters of war and peace, which is why a load of us abstained.

This party is becoming a joke."

(Labour MP explaining on Politics Home why he and others declined to obey orders from Jeremy Corbyn's whips to vote against a motion about the airstrikes on the Syrian regime's chemical weapons facilities which had been tabled in Mr Corbyn's own name.)
