Labour MPs claim a "tearful and dewy eyed" Prime Minister called the Labour waverers into his Commons office one by one and pleaded with them to back the Government. "If we lose this vote it will de-stabilise the Government and de-stabilise the markets," said the embattled Prime Minister, according to one MP who voted with the Tories despite the emotional appeal.
Makes you want to weep. For the record the Government won by 19 votes. That margin would have been 9 had 5 DUP MPs not voted the other way. Does anyone know if any Tory MPs voted with the government in favour of a third runway at Heathrow?
