  1. May considering snap election to save her job. Theresa May’s team have secretly begun planning for a snap election in November to save the Brexit talks and her job. Two senior members of the PM’s unit have begun war-gaming an autumnal vote to win public backing for a new plan. One of them told a fellow Tory strategist: "What are you doing in November - because I think we are going to need an election." The Sunday Times 
  2. Women half as likely to start their own business. Women are half as likely as men to start their own business, and only a fifth of smaller firms are led by females, according to a government study. Ministers told the BBC that this is creating a "significant pool" of untapped potential. "To better drive the UK's economy, we need to understand, and tackle, the barriers and reasons as to why this is." Editor
  3. Captain Cook’s ship Endeavour ‘found off US’. Marine archaeologists believe they may have found the wreck of Captain Cook’s ship Endeavour off the east coast of the US. A team of Australian researchers believe they have pinpointed the vessel in Newport Harbour. Cook took the ship to Australia in 1770. It was later used during the American War of Independence and scuttled off Newport, Rhode Island, in 1778. The Telegraph
  4. Leadership is about encouraging everyone to have a voice. One of the most challenging tasks any leader faces is being an agent for change and leading people through tough times. But it can also be one of the most rewarding. Tough times show us our true selves and what we’re made of. [MORE]
  5. One in 20 deaths are linked to alcohol. Alcohol is responsible for more than one in 20 of all deaths worldwide, according to new data from the World Health Organization. The report shows that of three million such deaths, 2.3 million in 2016 were of men. The Independent

The news comes days after it was revealed that the government is considering a wholesale review of how our railways are run. The Guardian
  7. IMF warns of 'dire consequences' of no-deal Brexit. A no-deal Brexit would cause "dire consequences" for the UK economy, says Christine Lagarde, the IMF’s managing director. She warned of "reduced growth, an increase in the [budget] deficit and a depreciation of the currency," adding: "In relatively short order it would mean a reduction in the size of the economy." She insisted that "all the likely Brexit scenarios will have costs for the UK economy". The Guardian
  8. Sarah no longer in top 100 popular baby names. Sarah has dropped out of the top 100 names in England and Wales for the first time.
