WATCH: Javid’s Home Secretary TV debut. He says his priority is security. And that his urgent task is to sort Windrush.
His other priorities? Tackling crime, fighting terror and extremism, and dealing with illegal immigration. He is careful to praise Home Office staff.
The new Home Secretary won’t toe the Downing Street line as his predecessor did. His appointment is thus a sign of weakness at the top.
It’s one thing to recognise the long-term threats posed by states such as Russia, quite another to meet them.
Robert Buckland: “We must speak the language of opportunity”. His lecture on Tory revival. Full text.

David Davis: Brexit is the defining issue of our age. The choice today to lead us through it is – May or Corbyn
We cannot afford to get it wrong. The Prime Minister is the right woman to go out to bat for Britain. She will deliver a strong deal and a bright future for everyone.

Interview: May – No, we’re not proposing leaving the ECHR. For the moment, we will look “at what else we can do”
But she confirms that Britain is leaving the ECJ’s jurisdiction, and says that there is a very clear choice on Thursday – between “me and Jeremy Corbyn”.
