Johnson leads our Next Tory Leader category…but makes no progress in our Cabinet League Table. The reason? He divides opinion.
Davis, Gove, and Fallon make up the top three again, but satisfaction levels overall are low. And Davidson is out-polling every Cabinet member.
Also: Prison reform campaigner compares Wales to Australia; Foster praises May’s speech; Scottish Labour leadership challengers urge party to vote down Brexit deal.
Also: DUP dig in their heels in Stormont dispute; and Scottish Labour leadership challenger credits Corbyn with party’s revival.
Cameron’s insistence on binding Britain to the OECD has undermined not just May’s vision for overseas development, but his own.
Shorter sitting hours, time-limited speeches, and procedural changes have all made the Commons less effective. If Bercow wants to fix it he should start there.
Also: Scottish Tories offer to mediate with Holyrood as devolved governments try to block the Withdrawal Bill; and a loyalist paramilitary group bids to be legalised.
