MPs vote down motion accusing Blair of misleading them over Iraq by majority of 369 – Politics live
Rolling coverage of all the day’s political developments as they happen, including Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn at PMQs
I know Zac Goldsmith and I like the guy, but the plain fact is that Zac is a political failure. Worst of all of is that he’s not only failed but betrayed the people of Richmond, who like the rest of London, voted overwhelmingly to stay in Europe. How can Goldsmith represent the opinion of the people of Richmond in parliament when he is the poster-boy for the Brexiteers and is urging the Government daily on its catastrophic course? The fightback can begin in Richmond tomorrow; Zac has to go.

One conclusion that could be drawn from the result of the vote is that, even though quite a lot of MPs (Tories and Labour) dislike Tony Blair, they hate the SNP even more.
