If I reported every time I had been threatened by a Whip or if a Whip reported every time I had threatened them, the police wouldn’t have any time to conduct any other police work! What nonsense from WW.

I believe it was wholly improper of William Wragg to misuse his position as Chairman of a Select Committee to make unsubstantiated claims against the Whips as part of his long standing and well known vendetta against #Boris.

2/2 And if WW was being "blackmailed" as he claims, what is there about his private life that he doesn't want made public???
Jesus Christ! Is that a blackmail attempt in the second tweet?

'I see no evidence of blackmail',

'I thought it was a work event',

Yesterday I bought a 2 litre bottle of own-label fiery ginger beer from Tesco. For years it's been 50p, yesterday it was 60p - that's a 20% price increase.
It's Biden's fault.

If the whips are threatening to gerrymander protesting MP's constituencies out of existence, does that mean the Boundary Commission is not independent?

At least you lot managed to peel Trump off the levers of power, to some extent. Johnson is (embarrassingly) still in office.
