Iain Dale: The Jenrick row. What grudge could the Daily Mail possibly have against the former owner of the Daily Express?
But if you sup with Desmond, use a very long spoon. Plus: Remainer mania remains. And: Masked, I prepare to take the train.
Iain Dale: “Winston Churchill gave voice to the nation’s courage and Vera Lynn gave voice to its heart”
Plus: If only the Remainers had behaved like Rashford. And: the lesson I draw from Twitter – “Immer mit der Ruhe”
Iain Dale: Gandhi was racist against black Africans. So by the rioters’ own reasoning, his statue should come tumbling down.
Plus: Ferguson’s evidence, two metres distance, Desmond’s donation, Jenrick’s response.
Iain Dale: The EU’s insipid response to China’s Hong Kong aggression. Another reason to be glad we’re leaving.
Plus: Trump. Racist, divisive, narcissistic. I can say that – but Johnson can’t. And: the return of the #virtuesignallingtastic Gardiner.
Iain Dale: The arrogance of Cummings, the failures of the Guardian – and why we all need to keep a sense of proportion.
He’s a distraction and so can’t possibly have his mind on the job. But the Guardian and Mirror got a lot of the story wrong – and should apologise.
Iain Dale: Hancock’s claim that care homes were wrapped in “a bubble of care” has a hollow ring to it
Plus: it was down to earth with a bump for Starmer this week at Prime Minister’s Questions – as he failed to think on his feet.
Iain Dale: When black women Labour MPs are wrong, white middle aged men should be free to call them out
Plus: Sturgeon’s failures as a leader and her successes as a communicator. And: the lobby has a reshuffle.
Iain Dale: Boulton is wrong. I criticise as well as praise the Government – without fear or favour. And here’s evidence.
Plus: Shapps’ presentational success and Hancock’s stuck tests. And: whatever Johnson says on Sunday, he’ll be damned either way.
Plus: In my view, there is no case at all to merit a decision to do anything other than keeping the lockdown, maybe with a few tweaks.
Plus: Scam PPE offers. Johnson’s very real illness. And: I’m wondering about the rest of his body. (My dog’s, not my partner’s.)
Plus: the useless Scottish media and the worst UK journalists. I name my first media onanist of the week. And it’s…
Iain Dale: Some political journalists seem set on making a drama out of this crisis without a second thought for the national interest
Plus: An outpouring of affection for Johnson. We reach Defcon Raab. The EU messes up (again). And: could Sleepy Joe wake up as President?
Iain Dale: Which Starmer will we get as Labour’s new leader this weekend? Radical Starmer? Or Safety First Starmer?
For his Shadow Cabinet, I would choose media friendly spokespeople, and back them up with deputies more on the policy wonkish side of things.
Iain Dale: If the Second World War had been fought in the days of 24 hour news channels, we’d have lost
Plus: My video tour of my bookshelves and why I won’t indulge editors. Three times in the last few days I’ve said no to them.
