It’s not yet 8.30am, but the Royal Van Lent Shipyard is a hive of activity. Carpenters are carefully laying teak decking, engineers are threading a nest of cables through a boat skeleton, and someone is wondering whether paying €1,250 per bottle of Cristal champagne is excessive for a boat's christening. This isn’t any old name-giving ceremony: this Sunday, a mystery guest called “the VIP” will be on Kaag island in the Netherlands to name "superyacht 814", due for completion in spring 2019. The 92m vessel, stretching as long as five double-decker buses, has six decks, a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, 12-person cinema, hospital, a mess for 30 crew members and – what else? – a helipad. Business is cruising in the Dutch industry of superyachts, whose owners include the late Steve Jobs, American billionaire Robert Mercer and Lord Irving Laidlaw.

The age of technology has no doubt made our lives easier yet it turns out that it also makes us dumber. A recent study by a Norwegian scientist proved that the IQ of westerners has been dropping dramatically since 1975.The study which was published by the National Academy of Sciences, said that people born in the first observation period from 1962 to 1975, gained almost 0.3 IQ points per year; however, the scores began to decline after 1975.

DRIVING THE DAY WINNER TAKES ALL: Tory Remainers and Brexiteers are both claiming victory this morning following Theresa May’s 11th-hour pledge to compromise on parliament’s power to shape the final Brexit deal. It means another big party row is looming, with Tories on each side currently giving wildly different accounts of the assurances they received from the PM. Happily we don’t have long to wait for confirmation — ministers have to publish their new proposals before the EU (Withdrawal) Bill returns to the Lords on Monday. One side or the other is going to be bitterly disappointed … and May will face another moment of maximum danger. Exhibit A: Just look at this Twitter row between arch-Remainer Anna Soubry and Brexiteer Bernard Jenkin last night. Remainers are adamant the PM has agreed to most of the … [Read more...] about POLITICO London Playbook: Winner takes all — Trump heads home — Summer drinks fest
