However, he'll be dealt an even tougher blow just hours later, as he's also agreed to take part in the London Marathon, following an impressive three-stone weight loss.

He cheekily confided to Zoe: "Every time I go on a training run or anything, actually, if I'm going down some stairs, there is part of me that thinks, ‘If I hurt myself in a way that took me out of the marathon, I wouldn't be devastated.’"

He added that his wife isn't too miffed about him missing quality time with the family each Saturday morning, quipping: "I half suspect she might have suggested it…”

Smoking, smacking, smartphones for kids: never mind the “nanny state,” today’s national debate seems crowded with demands for decisive action from politicians to save us – or our children – from ourselves.

He has been unabashed about defending the tough policy, despite some of his more libertarian colleagues – including the business secretary Kemi Badenoch – claiming it is an infringement on personal freedom, and one, Don Valley MP Nick Fletcher, fretting that “nanny states do not raise warriors”.

Tony Blair gave his MPs a free vote on Labour’s ban on smoking indoors in 2006, in the face of objections from colleagues including the cabinet minister John Reid.

  • Summary

Dozens of people have shared with the Guardian how they feel about Rishi Sunak’s tobacco and vapes bill, which aims to create the UK’s first smoke-free generation.

“A concern is that imported black market cigarettes tend to be even more dangerous, but a ban will still help a great number of people and stop many from ever starting.” Ted, 42, from Wolverhampton

Adults ought to be able to smoke tobacco if they wish to, just as they should be able to drink alcohol.If we want to make this country increasingly dull and puritanical, we are moving in the right direction with our wider war on nightlife.” Alex, 23, council worker from Shrewsbury

  • Summary

If this week’s tetchy exchanges between Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak at prime minister’s questions proved one thing, it was the ability of the veteran businessman, donor and publisher Michael Ashcroft to set the political agenda.

In recent years he has written largely positive biographies of Jacob Rees-Mogg and Rishi Sunak, but a far more scathing one about Boris Johnson’s wife, Carrie, which depicted her as a powerful and sometimes manipulative figure in Downing Street.

This week the publisher said it would delete a sentence in Truss’s book in which she falsely attributed to the Jewish banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild a quote about the desire to “issue and control the money of a nation”.

The ceremony has one great national purpose: to elevate the 60% who pass their crucial 5 GCSEs including maths and Englishto a superior destiny on a level 3 course and up – and to stamp down on the rest.

Without grade 4, many courses are closed to them – whole vistas of new horizons, anything above level 2, however good they might be at, say, graphic design, cabinet making, gardening, art, caring, engineering or cooking.

To make matters worse, the government is abolishing generally recognised BTecs and City & Guilds – “a car crash”, says Hughes.

Summary

Ellie Leach seems to still be riding the wave of her 2023 Strictly Come Dancing win, as it's only been a few months since she jubilantly lifted the trophy.

The nostalgic ex- Coronation Street star also admitted to her almost half a million Instagram followers that she can't stop staring at him.

However, when quizzed at red carpet events, Ellie remained tight-lipped about whether the pair had been dating, refusing to confirm anything more than a friendship.

Sunak’s disability benefit plans are familiar culture war fodder

Sunak’s disability benefit plans are familiar culture war fodder

52 secs

Summary

Rishi Sunak’s big speech on reforming disability benefits was intended to show that the government had a grip on the economic and health challenges of the UK’s rising levels of long-term sickness.

“Sicknote culture” – the idea that millions of lazy Britons are taking sickies with the connivance of GPs – was also in his sights, although there was little evidence to backup his assertion, or explanation as to how the changes would work.

A Labour government would need to balance restraining the benefits bill while addressing wider reasons behind mental illness such as poverty, insecure work, ineffectual job support and inadequate NHS care.

Summary

Smoking is unpleasant, but in this week’s parliamentary debate, the word nicotine could have been replaced by cannabis, alcohol, ultra-processed foods, base jumping or mobile phones for children.

The introduction of vaping, though controversial when it’s young people doing it, is understood to have helped accelerate the fall in smoking, as per the drug policy charity Transform.

Politicians everywhere have preferred to see gangsters triumph, crime soar, jails become crammed and their children ruined, rather than show the guts to decriminalise, regulate and control the hugely lucrative and dynamic drugs industry.

Lemn Sissay: ‘brilliant’ plans to improve child social care ignored by ministers

47 secs

Summary

The poet and broadcaster Lemn Sissay has accused ministers of ignoring “brilliant” recommendations to improve the “dysfunctional” children’s social care system in England because they are not vote winners.

Sissay spoke to the Guardian before the publication of a new book, Free Loaves on Fridays, thought to be the largest ever collection of stories from care leavers.

She credits the consistent and loving support from her social worker with giving her the stability she needed to find and settle into a comfortable life with an adoptive family.
