The National:

We all know that politicians can get a bit carried away at times, but this really takes the biscuit.

Tory MP Rory Stewart was speaking with Emma Barnett on BBC5 when he suddenly made the wild claim that 80% of the British public backed Theresa May's Brexit plan.

In absolute shock, Barnett asked him where he'd got that figure from only to have Stewart walk back from the point before admitting he'd made it up and apologising.

I guess he must be a little distracted, what with the Government currently falling apart around him...
