Boris Johnson is getting a £9million White House-style 'situation room' to command terror emergencies and military operations. The state-of-the-art bunker in the basement of the Cabinet Office will have huge display screens allowing the PM to track events in real time. It will be known as the Situation Centre, or SitCen, and should be up and running this summer - with claims it will reduce the time taken to brief ministers from 'weeks to minutes'.

Tellingly, the celebration was more boisterous than it had been at Anfield a week ago, when Ancelotti was serene while his players jigged. This was not as memorable a win, or even especially pretty, but in terms of its timing, … [Read more...] about Richarlison delivers as Everton seize ugly but psychologically significant victory over Southampton
