Monday's Quote of the Day
"So I can make the party more woof and less miaow" - Shadow Trade Secretary Alan Duncan explains why he wants to succeed "kitten-heels" Theresa May as shadow leader of the Commons.
In throwing his hat into the ring for the post, Mr Duncan knows he has some famous shoes to fill. Since 2002, Ms May has been making a splash with her daring choice of footwear at the annual party conference. Red patent leather stillettos, animal print wellies and sparkling, bejewelled heels have all graced the platform.
By promising to add some doggedness to the party, expect Mr Duncan in some snazzy hush puppies some time soon.
