Friday Links: Warmer weather, Boris Johnson and the 4th of July

Does Boris Johnson believe he can hoodwink the nation on Brexit? Yes, yes he does. This is the consequence of never, never having to face in any real way the damage that your behaviour causes. Waterloo may have been won on the playing fields of Eton and Harrow but public school boys nowadays have all the confidence that they were born to run the country and no sense of responsibility or shame.

What You Lose When You Gain a Spouse. As I get older, this increasingly feels true….

The Power of One Push-Up. I think that this month, I might start a push up challenge!
