Theresa May’s new-look Cabinet meets in Downing Street this morning as questions swirl about her future as prime minister. No. 10 last night concluded a rapid-fire reshuffle, confirming the incendiary briefing to Playbook last week that a “full reshuffle plan” had been drawn up for the Chequers summit was no empty threat. Jeremy Hunt takes his place in one of the great offices of state (and is one step closer to No. 10); Matt Hancock and Dominic Raab have the big jobs they lusted after, and for some reason Jeremy Wright is now culture secretary. But the relative slickness of the Downing Street operation last night … [Read more...] about POLITICO London Playbook, presented by Airbus: New-look Cabinet meets — Merkel in town — Judge dread in D.C.

May 21, 1918... There is a sense that Market Harborough’s community can see an end to this dreadful war despite the appalling increase in the casualty lists that have skyrocketed in the past month.For instance, the town’s council is planning to improve the post-war ‘housing of the working classes’ according to the May 21, 1918, edition of the Market Harborough Advertiser.The council has formed a committee because ‘it was evident that something would have to be done with regard to sanitary matters’ that come under the jurisdiction of the authority.

Then, seven long years after the murder, police got … [Read more...] about New twist in probe of slain NBA star Lorenzen Wright
