Female political leaders have more demands placed upon them than their male counterparts: criticised for crying at the ‘wrong’ times, and for failing to cry when the gravity of the situation demands it. This paradox is enforced particularly hard upon older, Conservative-leaning women who tend to be more reserved in public. To avoid both sexism and ageism, journalistic obsession over women’s emotions, and their emotional responses, must stop altogether. Crying is not an objective science, and ‘to cry’ is not synonymous with ‘to feel.’

Many Headteachers, teachers, local authorities and MPs remain frustrated with the Government’s refusal to increase real-terms funding in state-sponsored education. But they remain hopeful that their cross-party co-operation and lobbying might reverse their fortunes in the next Comprehensive Spending Review. Only time will tell if this becomes reality, or if pressing domestic issues continue to be overshadowed by Brexit.

Rape comments – like those levied at Jess Phillips by UKIP candidate Carl Benjamin – are never unintentional, offhand or a heat-of-the-moment attack: they are a careful type of performance by right-wing politicians, desperate to challenge mainstream media and shore-up public support. We need to stop giving such individuals the airtime to ‘defend’ or contextualise their views.

Cambridge’s ‘most unequal’ title will not vanish with the announcement of an access scheme that offers initially-rejected, ‘disadvantaged’ students a ‘second chance’ to get into Cambridge if their A-Level grades were better than predicted. This is a lazy measure: true endeavours to diversify Cambridge’s homogeneous student body would involve reducing offer grades for the poorest students.

Jacob Rees-Mogg is right to note that the similarities between Theresa May and Robert Peel are striking. But while the ERG-frontman is warning the Prime Minister against reaching out to the opposition (in the same way Peel did in 1846), that’s now exactly what’s needed to overcome the Brexit impasse. Especially given the humiliating cross-party reception her half-hearted Stronger Regions Fund has received nationwide.
