Londoner’s Diary: Carrie Johnson under fire as ministers mull post-Brexit ban

Welcome back to today’s Diary, where Carrie Johnson comes under for criticism from fur traders as the government mulls a potential ban. Then, artist Tai Shan Schierenberg tells us what it was like painting the Queen’s portrait and historian Greg Jenner reveals what happened when he suggested putting 18th century English philosopher Jeremy Bentham’s body in a bobsleigh. Later in our SW1A we hear how Dominic Cummings is apparently chatting to Keir Starmer’s team about providing strategic advice.
