A Middle East attacks and country kills some of its own neighbours, including children, at a wedding using aerial weapons in an incident that is clearly in breach of all human rights (At least 20 die in Saudi-led airstrike, 24 April). Yet from the trio of self-appointed world policemen (the US, France and UK) there is not a peep. No objection, no manufactured outrage; certainly no airstrikes. Something to do with the nature of the aggressor and the depth of its pockets?

• Another day, another mistake in the cryptic crossword (Corrections, 24 April). A reflection of the times, I suppose: fake clues.

• Jürgen Klopp may not want to be chancellor of Germany (Sport, 24 April), but when he leaves Liverpool could we have him as our prime minister, please?

• I’ve suddenly become a Liverpool fan. Hoping we win.

• No state benefits for a third child (Duke and Duchess show off new son, 24 April)?
