Spring has sprung and with one bound I am free. And all thanks to the fantastically successful rollout of the Royal interview. We're hoping it will reach 94% of the population within a week, meaning I will have total immunity from any scrutiny. Hats off to our wonderful CBS and the hardworking people there on the front line, who've done so much to make it possible.

PM's Press Secretary: Don't forget you've got no comment on this story.

Boris: Wotcha, Lulu, boom bang a bang!

Lulu: Mr Johnson, your bill for £200,000 is now overdue. Thank you for your custom. Lulu Lytle tries to live up to its motto “Never Knowingly Underpriced”.
