John Major and Gordon Brown defend benefit claimants - Politics Live 11.11.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Rolling coverage of all the day’s political developments as they happen 12.20pm GMT Owen Smith, the shadow work and pensions, has issued this statement about the unemployment figures. (See 9.34am.)

Even by the standards of the first two series, the president’s scheming is baffling. At least he has made up with Mrs U after her own plotting left him red-faced

The Underwoods were snarling at each other at 35,000 feet. “I should never have you made you ambassador,” said Frank. “I should never have made you president,” snapped back Claire. Clearly, Air Force One needs to be fitted with not one but two simmer-down steps.
