Plus: Leadsom is a mensch. The Euro-elections may be a Conservative wipeout. And: my interview with Blair.
Iain Dale: God help the UK Conservatives (so to speak) if they become religious fanatics – like the American Republicans.
Plus: The good and bad sides of Twitter – all in my week. How it may have helped to save a life. But also saw me slagged off for something I didn’t say.

Plus: Farage and my evenings. Edinburgh and my show. Notre Dame, fire, Macron – and recovery? And: Javid’s emotional intelligence.

Leadsom seems to be the only one with lead in her pencil. All she needs now is to grow big fat hairy balls.
Iain Dale: Rudd, Clark, Gauke. After all their bluster about resigning, abstaining ministers took the cowardly way out
Plus: The Chief Whip’s swift transformation from Francis Urquhart to Mr Bean. And: why I can’t bring myself to vote Tory in the local elections.
Plus: What anti-Muslim prejudice? I know of a Tory branch that moved their meeting from a pub in an attempt to make a Muslim member feel more comfortable.
Plus: No, the Trump-Kim Jong Un summit wasn’t altogether a failure. And: Costa should get his old job back.
Plus: In news elsewhere, a luxury women’s health spa in Belgravia – with annual membership fees of £5,500 – this week blamed Brexit for its closure.
