THUMBS UP

NEVER fig­ured Theresa May would be vaunted in this col­umn but the PM, ad­dress­ing the UN in NY, has warmed this cold heart. “I do not al­ways en­joy read­ing what the me­dia in my coun­try writes about me, but I will de­fend their right to say it.” Mean­while Jeremy Cor­byn claimed: “Here, a free Press has far too of­ten meant the free­dom to spread lies and half-truths.” Have the main lead­ers been on a dogma swap pro­gramme?

WON­DER why it took jour­nal­ist web­site Belling­cat to dis­cover one of the Sal­is­bury poi­son­ers had trained at a top Rus­sian mil­i­tary academy? Couldn’t MI5 or the CIA have Googled it?

THUMBS DOWN

NAUGHTY of Emily Maitlis to go bar­rel shoot­ing of the po­lit­i­cal fish that is Diane Ab­bott (pic­tured). When thrown a quote by the News­night pre­sen­ter, claim­ing the party has be­come a “mid­dle-class, Lon­don-cen­tric, uber-lib­eral, youth-ob­sessed party that is hand­ing P45s to Labour MPs in the north”, Ab­bott ex­claimed: “You are read­ing from a Tory script!” Maitlis hid a grin as she pointed out the quote was ac­tu­ally from a Labour Party mem­ber.

KYLIE MINOGUE (pic­tured) claims her new love Paul Solomons, the cre­ative di­rec­tor of GQ mag­a­zine, doesn’t com­pare to oth­ers. Don’t tempt fate, Kylie! We’ve seen you lose out too many times in the past.
