This is my weekly newsletter for members of Reaction, but don’t miss out on all the wonderful stuff on our Weekend section, where Adam Boulton’s weekly column is on Impeachment and the Clinton era.

It’s about bills, taxes, economics, well-being and policy choices: it’s inherently political and they’re supposed to be apolitical.
Michelle Mone – aka Baroness Bra – steps aside to clear her name over allegations about links to PPE contracts during the pandemic.
