    If Downing street staff were trying to do “expectations management” about the size of the main vote in the commons tonight, they have failed.
    Comments from the city of London today was that they were universally expecting the pound to fall. Although the size of the PM’s defeat was unexpectedly large the pound went up.

    An FT journalist commented on BBC1 that a defeat for the government today is not factored in to the price of sterling etc. Might there be a small number of individual eccentrics in the tory ranks? A vote of no confidence in 1979 brought down a government by one vote, albeit it was well into its five year term and called a general election.
    One MP from Northern Ireland flew down to London specially for the vote. He was an independent, not Sinn Fein, but wanted something for political prisoners. PM Jim Callaghan refused to give him anything. Tory sources interviewed on BBC radio 4 said he had been in a Commons committee room with two bottles of whisky. They did not give names. He was a publican.
