It’s our bumper Christmas review of the year. Thrill as we look back at the election no-one wanted, learn Theresa May’s guide to guaranteed electoral success, wonder how much longer Corbyn-mania can last, and stifle a yawn as we inevitably talk about Brexit.
Britain deserves a pay rise, say half the Cabinet. Not on my watch, say the other half. We explore the Cabinet battle over the public sector pay cap. Meanwhile, Labour's harmonious post-election mood disappears as internal hostilities resume. Also, after the disaster at the Grenfell Tower, isn't it time to pay more attention to what's going on in Britain's Town Halls. And, facing the threat of a lightning Donald Trump visit, we're rude about the leader of the free world. Once again.
As another awful week comes to an end, we look at why politics really does matter at a time of tragedy, and how the Prime Minister stumbled so badly in response to the disaster at Grenfell Tower. Plus the latest on the search for that strong and stable government, the delayed Queen's Speech, and Tim Farron's sudden departure.
