Lee Rigby report: live

telegraph.co.uk — The fact that MI5 were unaware of Michael Adebolajo's postings until after the killing will boost the intelligence agencies' claims that they need more information from internet service providers. 9.48 A key element of the report is likely to be the extent to which Lee Rigby's murderers Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale left online clues to what they were planning.

Ukip and the hard-Left are both blinded by Tory hatred

telegraph.co.uk — By this point my timeline was filling up with two distinct threads. The first related to my Ukip post. It basically consisted of a few Ukip supporters claiming I'd made up the whole thing, (I didn't, read the post), and a lot of others coming up with stuff about me being a race traitor, a member of the LibLabCon, and inviting me to combine sex with travel.

Has Theresa May just declared war on Downing Street?

telegraph.co.uk — There's much muttering at Westminster today about Harry Cole's very good profile of Theresa May in the Spectator . Most of it is about the quote from a "friend" of the Home Secretary saying something that's felt by several Cabinet ministers: she used to have faith in David Cameron and No 10, but now she regards him as a lightweight and his team as bunch of interfering second-raters: "She doesn't rate Cameron any more.

Cricket-lovers must unite to help the Pakistani cricketer arrested in Belgium

Paedophiles: 'We need to support the good ones'

Phil Hughes' injury is a brutal reminder that batsmen take their life in their hands every time they walk to the middle

telegraph.co.uk — Like any complicated manual activity done by master-craftsmen, batting for most of the time is made to look so simple. And safe. Ask somebody at home or in your office to throw a stone hard at your head from 20 yards. The survival instinct will probably save you 99 times out of 100.

David Moyes shouts “Stefano!” at his Real Sociedad team… Real Sociedad don’t have any players called Stefano

babb.telegraph.co.uk — Everyone with a heart and without a Manchester United season ticket wants David Moyes to succeed at Real Sociedad. Build them up, knock them down, send them away to a struggling La Liga side and take weird pleasure when they end the season comfortably in mid-table, clearing the way for a natural move to Aston Villa.

Can we stop the rise of the career politician?

telegraph.co.uk — This is happening even as the parties try to broaden the range of people they promote, promising to make Parliament look more like the country. Mostly, they're talking about race and sex. All-women shortlists and ethnic minority outreach efforts abound. They do good things: having more women and more non-white Britons in politics can only be positive.

Lee Rigby murder: It was preventable, but an internet company failed to alert the authorities

telegraph.co.uk — By contrast, Michael Adebowale had begun as a low level suspect, investigated because of his online behaviour. Adebowale had been in contact with other extremists online, and had posted messages using extremist language. But MI5 stated that the type of extremist language he used is, sadly, commonplace and was not sufficient to justify intrusive investigation.
