More on well-known issues (from the Guardian) & their full record
Since the Prime Minister has become an expert on promising referendums on the EU, then postponing them, and then promising another, what right has he to tell Putin that he cannot have one in Crimea?
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what estimate he has made of the number of people who have undergone a work capability assessment and have been declared (a) fit and (b) unfit to work who have died in each quarter since the first quarter of 2011.
Last week, when I asked a question about British taxpayers in an austerity-riddled Britain having to hand over money to Ukraine, the Foreign Secretary told the House from the Dispatch Box that the only money would come from the International Monetary Fund. Does he still stand by that guarantee, or does he want to amend it?
