Implementing a fair and controlled skills-based immigration system would be a huge win for the Government – and deliver on a key pledge of the Brexit campaign.
Plus: Those who worked with him at Vote Leave have a duty of care to Darren Grimes. And: Don’t try to out-stare Raab.
Also: May pledges no hard border on visit to Ulster; Williamson plans to compensate troops for SNP tax hikes; Welsh Assembly to rebrand; and more.
Garvan Walshe: Mueller is closing in on Watergate II – this time with Russian spies in place of Nixon’s homegrown goons
Trump asks us to believe Putin’s denial that Russian military intelligence did the job for him. And who wouldn’t believe those two honest men?

Robert Halfon: A second referendum would be an insult to the people, a stunt worthy of a banana republic
Plus: Why it’s unfair to misrepresent Poland’s history; and the joy of a good book and a large cigar.
James Frayne: A second referendum? The poll data suggests Greening’s idea would be a total disaster for the Conservatives

The President, and the wider rise of right-wing populism around the world, offers us some examples of what to do – and what not to do.
Daniel Hannan: My view of May’s new Brexit plan. It’s just about better than No Deal. But now a line in the sand must be drawn.
Preparing for no deal ought therefore to be our national priority – cuts in corporate and personal taxes, removal of regulations, openness to global business.
