The hand recount has completed in Georgia. Joe Biden has carried the state by 12,284 votes.
As has basically been clear since the day after the election, no matter how much President Trump doesn’t like it, Biden is going to win the same number of electoral votes as he did: 306.
From Georgia state officials: “Most counties found no change in their finally tally. The majority of the remaining counties had changes of fewer than ten ballots.”

NEW: Fmr Home Office Permanent Secretary Sir David Normington tells me today is a "serious moment". Says we've always relied on a sitting PM to sanction breaches of the ministerial code. Says if that's no longer the case system needs reform and the Cabinet Sec should be worried.
David Normington: "We have always relied on the ministerial code being upheld by the Prime Minister of the day. If he's not willing to do that then it is right that we should question the system. The system does make the Prime Minister judge and jury...."
"But in the past PMs have always acted when there has been a breach of the ministerial code and that is why in a sense this is a much more serious moment than previous ones because the PM seems to have gone against what would've happened in the past and..."

BREAK: @Keir_Starmer has decided not to restore the whip to Jeremy Corbyn, despite his Labour Party membership being restored.
Starmer: “Since I was elected Labour leader, I have made it my mission to root out antisemitism from the Labour Party. I know that I will judged on my actions, not my words. The disciplinary process does not have the confidence of the Jewish community. That became clear once...”
“... again yesterday. It is the task of my leadership to fix what I have inherited. That is what I am resolute in doing and I have asked for an independent process to be established as soon as possible...”

So danger is for Starmer that everyone ends up being annoyed.
Left was angry it happened probably still angry it happened. Anti-Corbyn forces delighted it happened now angry it has unhappened.
What could have been seen as strength comes to be seen as indecision and what might have been seen for Labour as a decisive break on anti-Semitism comes to be muddied. He and leadership will say this isn’t a matter for them but that distinction won’t be perceived.

Naturally I’ve taken a sneak peak at mentions for British politicians. Here’s Obama’s first mention of @David_Cameron. Says he had a “studied informality” but that he liked him and was a good ally, though is quietly quite savage about his economic policy and austerity.
It’s The Queen for whom Obama reserves deepest praise, she: “embodied the special relationship between the US and the UK and Michele and I always loved spending time with her.”

The interesting thing about the PM devolution comments is that it appears to be part of a pattern-we’ve seen similar hints in recent months (via sympathetic press articles and the like) that some in Downing St blame the devolution settlement for the Union’s malaise.
Though there is truth that in some ways, the incomplete devolution settlement creates the conditions for separatism and embeds tension between different parts of the UK, from a unionist point of view, attacking the principle of that settlement at source will be counter productive
Either the settlement has to be stabilised and reformed, with new constitutional thinking and structures, or you have to look closer to home. The freshest political instability around the Union has (predictably) arisen post Brexit referendum. Blair can hardly be blamed for that.
