Hodges wrong again as he gets owned by ‘recognised representative of the Jewish community’

‘Journalist’ Dan Hodges has an unmatched track record in getting it wrong, as author Alex Nunns has hilariously pointed out.

Brexit Secretary Raab calls Scotland an English region

Dominic Raab – is anybody home? Dominic Raab has been Brexit Secretary in name only since Theresa May decided she’d handle negotiations personally – what could go wrong?

Tories falling apart as MEP wants to execute ‘extreme’ remainers. Which is extreme…

A Tory MEP wants to ‘update’ the Treason Act to include execution for ‘extreme EU loyalty’.

Labour’s statement on May’s chicken-run attempt to shut down Parliament to save her job

Incompetent PM Theresa May went to extraordinary lengths yesterday to placate her party’s extreme-Brexit ultras – whipping her MPs to defeat her own proposals.
