The diet is always going to start tomorrow. But Governments then yield to temptation.
Would the Government have the bottle for planning, childcare and police overhauls – and will Downing Street sign up to this plan anyway?

Also: Spotlight on the literal handful of MPs providing Stormont’s entire opposition; and Scottish Tories offer a budget deal to the SNP.
Most voters will have what to them are more pressing reasons to reject Corbyn than anti-semitism. But none expose more fully why he must be stopped.
