No mention of benefits or death today, only weird points that are interesting:

For one, a whistleblower on a nuclear sub. The summary is "Oh fuck our subs are knackered and the security is terrible":

For two, an open letter by a former police officer. It's interesting (to me) because traditionally the tories have been keen to fund the police well in order to buy their loyalty. I suspect I would disagree with the ex-officer in question on many things, but still:

And finally, a story about how royals are still being asked whetehr they wish to veto laws. Weird! I remember being told that was a Thing That Did Not Happen Because They're Just Decorative, but here it is. No mention yet on which if any laws have actually been vetoed, or which have been altered to avoid the veto, because that information still hasn't been released.

"Head of State in 'Has Constitutional Role' Shock"

This is hardly a big secret. Slow news day at the Grauniad? Or are they still desperately trying to turn those Prince Charles letters into something newsworthy?

Big secret, maybe not. But I remember being taught in school that the queen had no actual power.
