Good stuff from Sarah Olney, the Liberal Democrat candidate in this week's Richmond Park by-election:
"Zac Goldsmith's idea that this was going to be a referendum about Heathrow has turned out to be nonsense because there is no pro-Heathrow candidate standing.
"Actually, what people really want to talk about is Brexit."
Mrs Olney called his decision to resign "ludicrous".
"He doesn't need a further mandate to oppose Heathrow," she said. "He already had that twice over."These wise words come from the Press Association, via the Daily Mail.
