Nurse your hangover from last night’s defeat to Italy by picking up a copy of the Sun on Sunday and finding out where party leaders watched the match. No election in the next two weeks so you won’t find any of them down the pub.
Also in Guido’s column this week don’t miss out on:
It has been claimed that Ed Miliband was forced to apologise to the people of Liverpool after seemingly the entire city jumped aboard the outrage bus over the Labour leader’s photo holding the Sun. Politics.co.uk report on a meeting with Scouse MPs yesterday:
“[Miliband] was left in no doubt whatsoever about what they thought. Ed Miliband said he was very, very sorry.”
The sincerity of these words should be looked at in perspective: Miliband gratefully accepted the chance of an op-ed for the Sun on Sunday in January and was photographed and filmed going around London with the Sun cabbie just last month. He also posed with the paper in 2011 and 2012. It is almost as if he has calculated that Liverpool will vote Labour anyway…

The numbers, drawn from the results of the National Readership survey and reported in Press Gazette, show that nearly 14 million people per week are now reading the Mail titles either in print or online. The real number will be even higher as the figure does not include traffic from mobile devices.
The Sun remains the most read paper in print by a distance.
In Guido’s Sun on Sunday column today, David Davis explains why he won’t go campaigning in Newark: Tory HQ are “cheeky little sh*ts”. Tory HQ hit back saying DD is a “selfish” loser. Don’t miss out on:

The Sun cabbie is back to grill each party leader ahead of the Euros. Today he has Nigel Farage in the back of his cab, and got him to commit to doing a deal with David Cameron if the numbers mean they could deliver a referendum:
“After the next election, if we find ourselves in the same position as Clegg did in 2010, I’ve got one priority. One pressing priority. That is, no mucking about, the people of this country have to have in short order a full, free and fair referendum so that we can decide whether we govern our own country or leave it to the people of Brussels to make all our rules. It’s not coalition that interests me, but doing deals on certain things to achieve outcomes, particularly that, does.“
He must have seen the polls…
