Adrian Pascu-Tulbure: As the recent US election showed, the minority vote is no longer automatically Democrat
There are all sorts of explanations about why people voted the “wrong” way. But the simplest may be the appeal of conservative values.
Neil O’Brien: The virus and the lockdown. Let’s keep calm and carry on – there’s reason to believe that a vaccine is coming soon.
We need to start listening to the right people – not hopeless people who get it wrong time and again, but face zero accountability.
The Government must publish regular reports on the cost of the virus, restrictions, and this coming lockdown to lives and livelihoods
Our latest survey finds that nine in ten Party members support such a move – a total that this latest news is unlikely to have reduced.
Pressure rises on Ministers to publish assessments of the impact of lockdowns, restrictions – and Covid itself
We urged the Government last week to do so. Others are also on the case – and the Daily Mail this morning publishes its own findings.
Iain Dale: We all want our city and town centres to return to normal. But that isn’t possible at present, so we must get used to it.
Plus: Johnson’s future. When I went to a party with a shotgun and live cartridges. And: am I Diane Abbott’s maternal grandmother?
Robert Halfon: Seven education heroes of the lockdown. All credit to them for putting the interests of children first.
They followed the guidance from Sir Nicholas Winton: “if it is not impossible, there must be a way to do it”.
John Bald: Ofqual needs a Chairman and Chief Regulator who know about education. If these can’t be found, we must start again.
We need to get rid of the idea that these grades are results. They are not, and cannot be relied on.
It is now open season on the Education Secretary, as it will continue to be until he resigns, is moved – or is sacked.
The Government has huge ambitions for UK science and innovation. Rethinking how to motivate inventors will take the country far.
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: 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.
Buffoonery, suffused sex and Latinate evasion: how Johnson’s language helped him become Prime Minister
This compilation of some of the terms he has used shows how, while rising to national leadership, he reassured outsiders that he was still one of them.
Daniel Hannan: Alarmism, doom-mongering, panic – and the coronavirus. We are nowhere near a 1919-style catastrophe.
Nothing I have written should be taken as a suggestion that we drop our guard or stop taking precautions. But, assuming we do that, there is no reason to panic. Cheer up.
James Frayne: The BBC’s growing problem isn’t public hostility. It’s apathy. Fewer people see the point of it.
The trust factor is simply less relevant, because fewer people are accessing the Corporation’s output in the first place.
