A few quick thoughts from me on reports in the press that MPs will be voting on giving themselves an extra five days holiday.

The Conservative Government is in a full flung crisis. This is no time for our MP Mr Mercer to vote himself an early holiday. Just because he has shown his backing for Mrs May’s fudged Chequers plan, it shouldn’t mean he should support her in breaking up early for his summer holidays. I encourage him to vote against his Government in seeking early recess and instead get on with the job he was elected for.
