How do you change a macho parliament? Talk about the reality of rape | Emer O’Toole
By describing traumas they have suffered, brave female MPs are challenging the apathy of mainstream politics and proving that the personal is political

Michelle Thomson’s measured, moving account of being raped when she 14, given at a House of Commons debate yesterday, was testament not only to her great bravery but also to the importance of the personal in parliamentary politics.

May's put-downs leave some muttering darkly about an anti-Johnson plot

Gaffe-prone Boris Johnson always looked an odd fit for foreign secretary and some Tory backbenchers are growing suspicious of the PM’s motives

Few Conservative MPs were surprised when Theresa May distanced herself from Boris Johnson’s comments about Saudi Arabia and Iran waging “proxy wars” across the Middle East – it’s not the government line, at least in public.
