Out of the frying pan, into the fire

It really is ‘out of the frying Brexit pan and into the Brexit fire’ at the moment for the government although this time it seems somewhat self-inflicted

Yesterday Speaker of the House John Bercow said there was an ‘arguable case’ the government was in contempt following its decision not to release the full legal advice on Theresa May’s Brexit plan. The motive behind May and Attorney General Cox’s decision is uncertain at the moment but the long and short of it is that Cox and maybe David Lidington could be suspended at a time when the Prime Minister needs as many supporters (and votes!) as possible.
