Professor Philip Cowley, This week in Westminster


Professor Philip Cowley was interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s This Week in Westminster about whether this is a rebellious House of Commons or not. He said: “There hasn’t been very much real backbench rebellion in this Parliament so far and I think that’s because we are still basically in the warm up period. Everything really is focused on Brexit and Conservative rebels for the most part, one defeat notwithstanding, have been keeping their powder dry for when they really might need it.”
