Sun Launches Politics Page

Coincidence? Maybe. The Mail’s Simon Heffer (Phd) now has a rival politics-on-one-page offering from The Sun‘s Tom Newton-Dunn (aka Neutron-Bomb). Basically all the paper’s political stories and comment, plus their Twitterfeed and a Westminster Hero/Villain of the week feature. This week the Westminster villain is Angela Merkel, who is actually in Berlin. Most newsworthy story of the day is an op-ed from David Laws telling readers to vote Conservative, sort of, whilst promising that the coalition will get rid of the 50% tax rate.  There are more political stories in The Sun than non-readers realise….

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
