Also: Sinn Fein tries to win special status for Ulster (by ignoring London); Daisley exposes the SNP’s one-party Scotland; and more.
Much of it is excellent and a skeleton for delivery, but it will need work to put flesh on the bones.
The issue is a case study in where power lies in this country.
Christopher Howarth’s Guide to Brexit: Haphazard amendments to the Article 50 Bill don’t help EU citizens in the UK
The issue must be addressed, and it will be. Opposition wrecking efforts are the wrong way to go about it.
The Government’s foreign policy may deliver a good departure from the EU and stronger relations with the US, but we must have economic reform.
Nadhim Zahawi: I found myself banned from Trump’s America. But I want his state visit to go ahead – and to tell him why he’s mistaken.

Also: May ‘intensifies’ work with devolved leaders on Brexit; Brokenshire attacks one-sided Troubles inquiries; Scottish Labour will ‘never’ back another referendum; and more.
Rebecca Coulson: Watch Trump like a hawk. Focus on the essentials. Judges should restrain him, women should sue him.
