The deal to get the Star Wars films made in the UK was one of the most unusual I was involved in - they came bearing lightsabers. Great see that our tax credits almost a decade ago have supported so many jobs and such investment in the creative industries

Exciting to see the new evidence from Cambridge University that the sugar tax we introduced, and which many opposed at the time and since, is working and reducing obesity - clearly the sugar tax should now be extended to help further improve public health theguardian.com/society/2023/j…

The inflationary pressures are real, but this response makes no sense. Having already cut off Leeds, then don’t go to central London - you really have to wonder how anyone in govt thinks any of this will support growth. By Harry Cole in The Sun thesun.co.uk/news/21179002/…

This week marks the 10 year anniversary of introducing the Same Sex Marriage Bill to Parliament. It remains one of my proudest achievements as PM. Many thousands of gay couples have been able to get married as a result. Proof that government really can make a positive difference.

Minouche is a stellar appointment for Columbia. I’ve worked with her as a fellow British Museum trustee and when we appointed her deputy governor of the Bank of England 9 years ago. She brings intelligence, imagination and good humour to everything she does.

Sad news that Sir Alan Budd has died - he helped enormously in advising us on how to design and then launch the new Office for Budget Responsibility 13 years ago. A great public servant whose work will continue to benefit generations to come. Thank you, Alan

Got hold of a proof copy of ⁦Daniel Finkelstein⁩ new book - he’s often told me parts of his extraordinary family story and I was so fortunate to know his mother Mirjam, who survived Belsen concentration camp - I know it will be beautifully written - very excited to read it
