The Scots are coming

"As I mentioned in the morning briefing, the SNP in Westminster will apparently today ask the Speaker to recognise that party – rather than Labour – as Her Majesty’s Opposition.

The SNP’s leader in Westminster, Angus Robertson, does now technically command the support of 14 more MPs than the Labour leader, following the no-confidence vote in Jeremy Corbyn. That vote saw just 40 MPs back Corbyn, with 172 against."

Then the alarm clock went off and they remembered that they weren't voted for at the last GE to be OO.

I quite like the beef.

Sorry, what were you saying?
