This is worth reading. A quality piece. But why is PM Johnson called Boris throughout? Other senior politicians are all addressed by surnames. Leaves impression of a certain clubbiness afforded to him and perhaps not others

Defence minister the latest victim of the Johnson cull. A hero during the Westminster terror attack as he tried to resuscitate PC Palmer and a champion for the rights of our war veterans

Just spoke to IDS who was on and he says you don't need legislation to enshrine rights and adds that any bill going through before Oct 31 will be hijacked so govt won't be bringing any forward

Third runway. Johnson says he shares Lucas’s concerns about the 3rd runway and says will study outcome of court cases with “lively interest” > doesn’t commit either way. But business will be worried

Hilary Benn: if we vote against a No Deal what is the PM’s policy then? Johnson says this is exactly the sort of the “defeatism” that’s been going on for years. And says we’ve got to get it done > but what will he do? Try to suspend parliament? Trigger a GE?

Johnson says he doesn’t think No Deal will be the outcome after he drew again the sort of red lines which would make many think it’s now very very likely

IDS “unreservedly welcomes” BJ to place and says “EU must now realise the days of supplication are over” > they did spend 2 and a half years negotiating a deal, it’s just the Brexiteers didn’t like it
