His shift on candidates now acknowledges that a hung Parliament would be a bad thing. It follows that pro-Brexit voters in tight contests should back the Tories.
Lord Caine has projected a plan that would allow proceedings into suspected Troubles-related offences only if certificates are issued by senior legal figures.
Our answer is: a steady lead and a late wobble – to help get the vote out. He begins the second week on course.
Bad campaigns usually don’t matter, but the Party can’t risk one. Johnson needs Javid to help persuade voters that Corbyn would plunder their wallets.
Watson quits. Will Labour’s moderates follow his example – or endorse an extremist as Prime Minister?
Only yesterday, Andrew Gimson reported for this site that the party’s Deputy Leader was in deep trouble in his West Bromwich constituency.
The Editor of this site has sometimes been afflicted by the same condition, which has clearly driven the former Chancellor nuts.
Congratulations to Hoyle – the new Speaker. He pledges to “polish away” the tarnish of the Bercow era.
This Commons has been excoriated over Brexit, but nothing becomes it like its ending. By putting Hoyle and Bryant in the final, it turned its back on the Bercow era.
But Laing’s 127 votes have to divide roughly five to one if he is to beat Hoyle – who therefore remains favourite.
Laing has 122 votes, Bryant 120. Unless the candidates who withdraw transfer disproportionately to one of them, Hoyle seems to be home and dry.
He won 211 votes. Laing gained 113 and Bryant 98. Hillier and Leigh are eliminated.

The Commons urgently needs a Speaker who can begin to restore the damage inflicted on the Commons and the constitution by the present incumbent.
Almost nine in ten Party members expect a Conservative-led Government after the election. Our survey.
These findings compare to a 64 per cent total in June, when Theresa May was still Prime Minister, with a leadership election looming.
The two parties have different Brexit policies, and it would therefore be impossible for them to project a united appeal.
