Are you sure that group didn't just assemble in a bar to watch a preview about the Cheltenham meeting?

(I think the results there are easier to forecast than what will happen about Brexit.)

I suspect this from the Telegraph was actually meant to have been published on the 1st

If only every MP fought for Britain like Mark Francois, we would be in a much better place


Yesterday, something extraordinary happened in the Brexit saga. Mark Francois, vice-chairman of the European Research Group (ERG), entered the public’s consciousness for the first time as a potential leader for sorting out the mess.
 

Mark Francois did not appear in the news much before Brexit, this is an excerpt of one of those rare pre Brexit appearances. I think we can all agree it does appear he really is a man of the people Wink

So Gove, VAT changes to help small business just goes to show how little he understands.  Changing VAT rates, thresholds etc etc is fine, but changing the system itself would just involve more cost to small businesses, changing accounting system that have only just been introduced when the Gov made tax digital.

I think the prospective leaders are making a hash of it.
