Lib Dems challenge use of civil servants to advise Tory compromise seekers

Politics Home’s Ross Kempsell reported today that eight of the eleven Lib Dem MPs have written to the Cabinet Secretary today. They want to know whether it’s ok for our impartial civil service to be diverted from their jobs to advise the group of Tory MPs who are trying to thrash out a Brexit compromise.

Surely our Civil Servants have something better to do than look for a sticking plaster that is going to keep the Tory Party together for the 15 minutes they have to spend in a voting lobby?

It shows how valuable it is to have three former Cabinet Ministers amongst our 11 MPs. They know the rules better than anyone because they had to live by them for five years.
