A noisy and combative PMQs ahead of the budget today was dominated by rows over Brexit, with Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn attacking the Prime Minister on issues ranging from Northern Ireland and worker’s rights to immigration and tax avoidance.
Scottish Labour has been thrown into disarray just days before the announcement of the results in its leadership […]
Newly elected UKIP leader, Paul Nuttall, called for English devolution in his first speech as UKIP leader after previously suggesting Scottish MPs should be removed from the House of Commons.
Nuttall has replaced Nigel Farage as permanent leader of the party winning over 60% of the vote in the second Leadership election the party has had in the last 3 months.
The last election was labelled a shambles after Diane James, elected in September, resigned only 18 days later, subsequently leaving the party. Nigel Farage had to return to the leadership role while a new leader was selected.

Tomorrow at 12.30 am, the Chancellor Philip Hammond will deliver first Autumn Statement to the Parliament in London.
The Autumn Statement is one of two big economic statements made by the government every year. It is based on the latest forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) for the economy and public finances.
The first Autumn Statement was held in London in 1982, although people used to refer to it as a Spending Round.
Under the last Labour government, it was called the Pre-Budget Report – George Osborne changed the name back to the Autumn Statement in 2010.

Tommy Sheridan has accused former Scottish Socialist Party (SSP) member Alan McCombes of scripting tapes in which ex-SSP leader confesses to visiting sex clubs.
McCombes denied accusations that he collaborated with Sheridan’s best man George McNeilage to create the damaging video.
McCombes denied these claims: “That is just nonsense. Neither did I hire Rory Bremner to do an impersonation, Tommy.”
