A chance for you to catch up on our five most-read stories of the week.

Five: When did the Telegraph turn into a mouthpiece for autocrats?

In fifth place this week is a piece which questioned the Telegraph's business relationship and coverage of regimes around the world accused of human rights abuses. It says the recent platforming of dictators is an unprecedented shift for a once-great paper.


Four: SNP MPs 'need to be on their planes back' to Scotland

In the top five for a second week is our report that the Tory MP Heather Wheeler said the SNP 'need to be on their planes back' to Scotland, as MPs prepared to vote on restricting the rights of non-English MPs.

Three: Tory secrecy on tax credits has come back to haunt them

In third place is a piece about the House of Lords vote on cuts to tax credits. It suggested that if the government had been honest about the cuts in the first place, the Lords would have been powerless to stop them.

Two: PMQs verdict: Corbyn just hammered Cameron

Next is a verdict on this week's PMQs. Corbyn has been looking increasingly confident at the weekly head-to-head with the prime minister and this piece suggested that he won Wednesday's session hands-down.

One: The attack on Germaine Greer shows identity politics has become a cult

In the top spot this week is a piece which looked at the no-platforming of Germaine Greer and what it says about the wider debate on identity politics.
