The Motion to ask the Government to introduce legislation in the next session of Parliament was lost by 483 to 111. Some of the debate is up on the unedited Hansard. My view is that we while the recriminations proceed, those of us who care about the real issues - withdrawing from the EU, how to go about it and what to do afterwards - must use the time to prepare ideas and strategies. It can't be done without money and most probably the money will once again go towards some half-baked campaign. But maybe, just maybe there is another Anthony Fisher somewhere who understand the importance of ideas and ill donate serious money towards their development.
Tim Montgomerie, astonishingly, analyzes the real malaise in the Conservative Party and that is dissatisfaction with the Boy-King but inability to do anything about him.
