Plus the weather, Maddie/Diana and todays headline "How to stay mentally sharp!"

Stop reading the Daily Express would be my advice on that

There was a good article in the Guardian yesterday about how much money Richard Desmond had siphoned off from the Express group. ... newspapers

For him to have pocketed £500m from a paper that has been in terminal decline for the last 20 years you would have to question what the Mirror group would be getting from any purchase. Will be interesting to see if he has raided the companies pension fund.

Though I doubt this would get much coverage if Zarb-Cousin was put in charge of the Mirror's political coverage ... -on-brexit
More than 16,000 people have emailed Labour over the past five days, urging the party to consult members on Brexit after MPs said the topic was being ignored by its most senior policy body.

The emails from party members will be examined by the party’s national policy forum (NPF), which meets this weekend in Leeds, and whose members include the shadow cabinet and trade union leaders.

Labour has set up eight policy commissions since last year’s general election, to consult members and develop policy, but none focus on Brexit. The party has said Brexit is covered under the international policy commission, involving Keir Starmer, the shadow Brexit secretary, but that commission is not at the moment accepting submissions on Brexit. A leaked draft of the commission’s agenda for the meeting this weekend, seen by the Guardian, shows members will be asked for views on development goals, not on Brexit.
