Reports that the former brought pressure to bear on ITV are alarming. Can we look forward to a new series – Britain’s Got Feudalism?
Iain Dale: Biden seems to forget his Defense Secretary’s name, and the media says nothing. Imagine if it had happened to Trump.
Plus: Piers Morgan wasn’t ‘cancelled’. And: We need a conversation on women’s safety.
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.
Daniel Hannan: Fewer are dying of the virus, thank goodness. But we are somehow more nervous about it now than we were in March.

Plus: Cable, the Saudis, arms – and hypocrisy. MPs, the EU Withdrawal Bill, Henry VIII clauses – and hypocrisy. And: on a different note, why isn’t Zahawi a Minister?
Opinion polls which show Labour in contention cannot be reconciled with the public’s contempt for the party’s leader.
