Our Cabinet League Table. The Chequers effect blitzes everyone. They’re all down. And May dives to her lowest rating ever.
This is collective punishment for the new Brexit policy. P.S: when ratings fall in this way, place in the table scarcely matters.
Our Survey. Next Tory Leader. Johnson more than triples his score to come top – for the first time since 2016
It’s the Chequers factor – as Gove falls from second to fifth. Javid remains competitive on 19 per cent, coming second this month.
Andrew Gimson’s Commons sketch: the former Foreign Secretary declares that there is a better way to lead us through Brexit
Though not as devastating as Sir Geoffrey Howe’s resignation statement, this one still pointed the Government on a new course.
Meanwhile, Williamson and Johnson’s approval ratings are in the doldrums.
Iain Dale: A betrayal, a contortion, a rash, a shambles, a schism, a squabble. What’s the best collective noun for Cabinet ministers?
And: One Greg Clark. Two Vince Cables. Eleven Germans going home. 100,000 Remain protesters. 17 million Leave voters. Plus: Meanwhile, Javid gets on with his job.

Neither Tory MPs nor voters want a poll, but a paralysed Government and Parliament would make one all but unavoidable long before 2022.
James Price: More borrowing and higher taxes are not the only – or even the best – way to free up more money for the NHS.
But some of the reforms listed above would improve the quality of healthcare, save money and set the service on a more long-term footing.
The Vote Leave director is the onlie begetter of this cashfest. But we’ve said it before and say it again: Britain can’t tax its way to prosperity – or a better health service.
It’s time for a big investment to secure the long-term future of medical and social care free at the point of delivery.
Last-minute concessions appear to have saved the Government from defeat on the EU Withdrawal Bill
Our Survey. Next Tory leader. Rees-Mogg leads Gove by less than ten votes in over a thousand. Javid is third.
If, that is, you don’t count “Other”, which comes ahead of the Home Secretary but behind the two front-runners.
