A breathtaking story on today’s cover: Greater Manchester is to become the first English region to run its own NHS and care system, taking control of a £6bn-a-year budget, integrating health and social care. The scale, speed, and radical potential are astonishing. The consequences are unguessable.

One in five adults is teetotal, rising to one in four among young people and pensioners, and one in three Londoners. The only group defying this trend is retired women! Binge-drinking’s falling across the UK and especially among young adults. The West Midlands are driest after London, while abstinence is lowest in north-east and south-west England. Pour me a cider.
