Dominic Grieve can now rush to join Cheryl Gillan and the other voices who oppose HS2. Is the Minister for Europe soon to join them?

Andy, Mr Wright hardly usurped our Dom. it was Cameroon's doing, no one else.
They are just preparing a sexy Cabinet for us to vote for next year. Younger people, more female cabinet members - 28% of the cabinet is now female.
