This week the Tories struggled with Brexit and roundly failed to answer the big questions at PMQs.
With parliament back in session, the government has said and done a number of bizarre and awful things...
1. Matt Hancock defended "homophobe and misogynist" Tony Abbott in embarrassing interview.
The Tories have confirmed former Australian PM Tony Abbott as a UK trade envoy.
From the get-go, the idea drew criticism, including from Keir Starmer, because of Abbott's history of problematic comments. Abbott was a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage while in office and was famously deemed a "misogynist" by Julia Gillard in 2012.
When confronted with these claims on Sky News, Hancock replied "well... he's also an expert in trade".
The toe-curling interview quickly went viral.
On top of everything else, he’s also not an expert on trade. https://t.co/2lYIjMHk45
