Android : One thought sparked by @PaulWaugh’s brilliant analysis is that you barely hear anything these days about the No10 grid. Something that was so central to political management for so many years is hardly mentioned these days, and that may explain a great deal. A quick thread.

Android : This is all there in the quotes in @PaulWaugh’s article: the need for political antennae; better horizon-scanning; and people to do their basic jobs. But besides that generalised disquiet, what Tory MPs should be asking very specifically is: ‘What has happened to the No10 grid?’

Twitter Web App : B3WRE Deborah Or to quote a former minister: "Our councillors are livid because they’re being hung out to dry as well. All this bollocks about £63m – it wasn’t for free school meals."
