Rishi Sunak’s Brexit deal, the Windsor Framework, passed a House of Commons vote by 515 MPs to 29 yesterday. Boris Johnson, who was busy being grilled over his Partygate conduct, led a failed Tory rebellion against the bill. Amid all this excitement, Sunak released his tax returns. The PM earned almost £5m over the past three years and paid an effective tax rate of only 22% – similar to someone on £40,000 a year – as most of his income came from investments taxed as capital gains. Two teenage sweethearts have finally married 60 years after they first met. Len Allbrighton, 79, proposed to fellow Brit Jeanette Steer, 78, back in 1963, but Steer’s parents didn’t let her move with him to Australia. Decades later, he tracked her down to the Isle of Wight and proposed again – and this time they made it to the altar.
