‘Manhandling’ and disunity in the House of Commons



‘Manhandling’ and disunity has engulfed Britain’s House of Commons as Truss attempts to steer the ship

Reports of ‘manhandling’ and disunity in the UK’s House of Commons, with the Labour party has losing its vote on banning fracking.

230 MPs voted for the ban, with 326 voting against – resulting in a majority of 96.

The Tory government had ordered all of the party’s representatives to oppose Labour in the vote, or face expulsion altogether.

But this didn’t sit well with a number of key MPs.

As the vote approached, three Torys – including the former climate minister – warned they could not “vote to support fracking”.

Now, the Labour Party is reporting instances of “manhandling” and “bullying” as the vote took place in the lobby.

Conservative members of parliament were allegedly unsure about whether they were allowed to vote with the Labour motion.

Discussions took place over uncertainty about whether it was being treated as a vote of confidence in the prime minister.

Tory MP Charles Walker broke down the chaos – what he described as a “shambles and a disgrace.”

Walker says it is “inexcusable” and there is “no coming back” for the government.

He’s had enough of “talentless” people in cabinet, adding he hopes it was “worth it” for those who supported Truss’ rise to power.

Walker has been an MP for 17 years, adding his “patience has reached the limit.”

Earlier, there were also rumours the chief whip, Wendy Morton, and deputy chief whip, had also stood aside.

Their role is to pull the party into line and ensure discipline, when required.

But the BBC is now reporting both will remain in post, for now.

“It is true that in the times of war, the tensions between civil liberties and national security can be skewed.

“It’s not to say it’s without risk. There are several examples where several well-known international investigative journalists have been targeted based upon their reporting,” he said.

Why OPEC policy decisions will have a major impact on oil prices



Despite the fall in oil prices, OPEC and its allies policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.

In May 2023, the total number of rigs drilling for oil and gas was already down by around 7% when compared with its peak in December 2022.

Slower drilling activity eventually translates into slower production growth, creating a delay of up to 6 months.

In the meantime, high levels of production are keeping inventories elevated, especially in the case of gas, which is keeping prices under pressure.

OPEC and its allies are weighing the possibility of further oil supply cuts, despite the fall in oil prices.

OPEC+ and its allies led by Russia, pumps around 40% of the world’s crude.

So, its policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.
