Clean. Soft. Hard. Red, white and blue. We're getting a better idea of what sort of Brexit we're heading to.
And we may be getting an idea of what destination the long-running Southern Trains dispute is heading to, as well. And Donald Trump - does he know where he's heading? The Dorchester ... in Southampton?

To discuss all this -

  • Conservative Ed Vaizey MP, from Wantage in Oxfordshire;
  • Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb in Brighton from the Greens;
  • Peter Kyle, Labour MP for Hove in Sussex

The Isle of Wight Council has a new leader.

Conservative councillor David Stewart was elected at a meeting this evening.

It follows Monday's resignation of the former leader, Jonathan Bacon, and his deputy, Steve Stubbing. They were both independents and said they quit because then said they could no longer deal with the Government's continued austerity cuts.
