Putting the horrific context to one side, the sight of the terminally smug Michael Gove’s apology to the Commons today was certainly an edifying one. But it won’t be the YouTube moment politicos will discuss at the water cooler tomorrow morning. Over to you, Tom Watson:

Suffice it to say you should always return Mr. Watson’s calls.
