    Labour Split / Independence Group

    Very technically, they are pretty much there. Ignoring the Speaker and deputies, who can never vote, you now have 323 MPS who are whipped to vote with the government and 322 who aren't (plus a vacant seat Labour will likely regain), though one of those is in prison. In practice (and taking into account non-voting Sinn Fein), four more Conservative defections would mean they lose their effective majority and they hit the point where they need somebody other than Conservative and DUP MPs to win a vote on anything. In theory we're also a couple of defections away from the point where a no confidence vote could literally come down to who actually shows up on the day, but in reality I suspect the Independent Group would abstain as there's no real upside for them in having a general election anytime soon.

    Labour Split / Independence Group

    Already tied I think -- one Lib Dems quit a few weeks back to vote for May's deal. Also appears TIG is the biggest ever majority-female group in the Commons. (Others were single MPs and briefly the SNP in the late 60s )

    Is it OK to fancy Heidi Allen now?

    Labour Split / Independence Group

    Bit of number crunching here: The upshot is the most likely result is Angela Smith's seat would become a very close Conservative-Labour marginal and the rest would likely be retained by Labour. In every case the defecting MP would have a slim chance of winning, though combined it's about 50-50 that at least one of them would do so.

    All Elite Wrestling trademarks filed

    There's a story here claiming an exclusive on the schedule: https://wrestletalk.com/news/exclusive-aew-multi-show-schedule-revealed/ Story is monthly shows till September and then launching TV in October. The big problem which raises questions about the entire story is that it says they are doing the Royal Albert Hall in August. 124 years of the Proms would certainly suggest otherwise.

    Random Thoughts III.

    Totally self-indulgent, but it's 30 years to the day since this happened. Which means that in a few days (however long the US broadcast > Sky One) delay was), I'll have been watching this nonsense for three decades.

    That time the government paid for wrestlers to go abroad.

    Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

    Vader wasn't in until 1993 and this stuff is mainly 91-2. But the full run of Bushido gets to about 94 and he's not on it, so that's likely the case. His matches were edited off some shows they aired on pay-per-view in the US.

    Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

    13 episodes of Bushido (UWFi with English commentary) on Amazon Prime: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bushido-Way-Of-The-Warrior/dp/B07N6P661N/ref=sr_1_1?s=instant-video&ie=UTF8&qid=1548858632&sr=1-1&keywords=bushido Includes an appearance by a 49-year-old Iron Sheik who, in fact, does not make his opponent humble.

    Dean Ambrose leaves the ukff

    Meltzer reckons he was offered a five year renewal on a million a year downside guarantee. If that's correct, I think it's fair to say Ambrose really doesn't want to stick around.
  15. Difficult to verify, but there are reports of a show at White Hart Lane with French Angel vs Bert Assiratti doing 14,000 in the late 40s.
