Iain Dale: This reshuffle could have promoted and prioritised housing. But all we got was a name change.
Plus: The mystery of the missing Kwasi Kwarteng. The presence of the ebullient Brandon Lewis. The absence and recovery of Nick de Bois. Plus: Capita’s failures.
His debut as a phone-in host offered an indication that – despite being posh and old-fashioned – he has an exceptional ability to communicate in modern Britain.
My TV omnipresence. After The News. Two wheezes from the Chancellor. Will he be fired in a reshuffle? Oh, and p.s: it could take place on Monday.
All credit to her. She’s the first prime minister since Tony Blair to do one phone-in outside an election period. They always carry a slight risk for a politician.
Plus: Nigel Farage steps into my shoes; life after gangs; and the absurd Remainer response to the Government’s Brexit papers.
Plus: I’m beating James O’Brien; Labour’s telling silence on Venezuela; and saying farewell to a friend.

Oh, and Timothy and Hill should be moved on from being co-Chiefs of Staff – the former to head up policy, the latter press.

Iain Dale: There’s only so far that Labour can fall in the polls. I think we’ve reached that point now.
Plus: May needs Johnson. My election predictions. Strange selection decisions. And: why I decided not to put my name forward for the seat in which I grew up.
Iain Dale: My election prediction. May will be back in Downing Street with a Commons majority of 74 seats.
Plus: Where I was when the poll was announced. What I will be doing during the campaign. And: the temptation to seek to stand as a candidate tugs at my sleeve…
Plus: Hammond’s blunder. Peers’ folly. Stephen Hawking is not, repeat not, controlled by MI5. And: my inner Mary Whitehouse meets Katie Hopkins’ slack vagina.
