So we’ve had NHS, policing and immigration plans from Johnson. Stand ready for a schools spending pledge.
He committed during the leadership election contest to raise it to £5000 per pupil – and level up outside London.
Patel’s aim and Johnson’s announcements will be difficult to deliver, but he is intent on proving that his Government is “on your side”.

Meanwhile Ruth Davidson, so often one of the highest-scoring politicians, is at the bottom of the chart after her row with Johnson and strong line against No Deal.
It sends a clear, positive signal to young people from migrant backgrounds, among whom our Party lags behind.
