Boris winged it on air, never knowingly dodging tricky issues 14 Jan 10:54am Boris winged it on air, never knowingly dodging tricky issues
Resembling one diagnosed with a reality bypass, PM had waffle on the menu for BBC Breakfast The cameras had been broadcasting clips of absolutely nothing going on in Downing Street throughout the first two hours of BBC Breakfast. Almost as if the producers didn’t quite trust the prime minister not to back out of his first televised interview since the election and wanted to shame him into going through with it. Or at the very least to have footage of him sneaking out a rear window. But for once Boris Johnson was as good as his word and shortly after 8am the BBC’s Dan Walker found himself face to face with a figure who looked as if he had just tumbled out of bed.

It’s not just Meghan and Harry. I’d like us all to escape this dire royal circus | Suzanne Moore 14 Jan 1:00am It’s not just Meghan and Harry. I’d like us all to escape this dire royal circus | Suzanne Moore
The Duchess of Sussex is compared to Yoko Ono and subjected to big-bucks bigotry. She and her husband should be allowed to go – then we can rethink what monarchy means There is a meme doing the rounds in which Prince Harry, instead of cuddling up to Meghan, is embracing Yoko Ono. You may find this hilarious. Yoko broke up the Beatles; Meghan is now ripping apart the royals. I find it racist, sexist, untrue and a sign of how little we understand our own prejudices, and those of our rulers. Yoko is a brilliant artist in her own right. She was also, if you care to remember, described at the time as
