Education, housing, the environment: May’s campaigning priorities. And there is an NHS row. But what about the economy?
The Government had next to no living standards message at the election. It needs one now – and to explain how it fits in with those three priorities.
James Frayne: May is right to drop her vote on the hunting ban – it should never have been in the manifesto in the first place
At best, people don’t think about the issue. But as soon as they do, they overwhelmingly support the ban. A vote would have been hugely damaging.
Whatever you believe, there is force in the claim that truth sets you free. But this Christmas, as at other times, it comes with a cost.

The Government has rightly become more ambitious – but there is still further to go.

A free vote on repeal gives legislators the opportunity to review the impact of the fox hunting ban. No wonder the law’s supporters are nervous.
What would WTO mean? 1) Lee Rotherham: It would be a walk to a beach, not a cliff-edge drop to destruction
Unless either the UK or the EU want a trade war, its most likely consequence would be making use of a mass of small deals to achieve sizeable gains.
Escape from the EU’s free trade rules gives us the opportunity to introduce a wide range of new welfare measures.
Plus: Schengen should be suspended. The doctors’ strike is a disgrace. A cow is more likely to kill you than a shark. And: Gove could develop into a fine Conservative leader.
