Russell Tovey and Bertie Carvel star in the latest thriller from Luther writer Neil Cross, complete with dark forests, ghostly apparitions, and mountains of dread

Itas cold(ish). Itas dark. Itas the week leading up to Halloween.

The Sister, which started on Monday and continues nightly until Thursday, is a supernaturally-tinged dose of nail-bitery, doled out in suspenseful chunks and starring Russell Tovey and Bertie Carvel.

The tale properly began one rainy, windswept night with a man (a round-shouldered, stringy-haired Carvel, all Dickensian malevolence and creep) turning up on the well-appointed doorstep of happily married thirtysomething Nathan (Tovey) to plunge him into terror with the words: aTheyare digging up the woods.a For Nathan has a secret and itas quite a good aun.

'Women are tired of having to walk men through it': the male comics standing up for #metoo

US election 2020: are Democrats taking black voters for granted in Wisconsin?
Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2020 03:00:37 GMT
From https:

The Guardian US reporter Kenya Evelyn grew up in Milwaukee, in the swing state of Wisconsin. She recently returned to see how this yearas pandemic, recession and Black Lives Matter protests are shifting the cityas politics

In recent years, Wisconsin has come to play a crucial role in deciding the presidential election. In 2008 and 2012, Barack Obama comfortably won there. But in 2016, Donald Trump took the state by a margin of just 23,000 votes. That year, 93,000 black voters in the city of Milwaukee stayed home on election day.

The Guardian US reporter Kenya Evelyn recently returned to her home city and tells Mythili Rao what she heard when she spoke to black voters about what this election means to them. The Democrats had expected to hold their convention in Milwaukee a but when the pandemic forced the party to go virtual, an anticipated $200m economic boom instead spiralled into a substantial loss. The pivot was also the final straw for many of the cityas African American residents. The coronavirus shutdown worsened national crises that disproportionately devastated black Americans across the country, exacerbating racial inequalities in Milwaukee. Many activists told Evelyn that it could stifle local efforts to solicit enthusiasm for Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris. Itas a warning for Democrats not to take black voters for granted.

From https:

If it werenat so serious, there would be deep comedy in seeing Marcus Rashford run rings around Boris Johnsonas lot

Will nobody think of the prime ministers? Everyone has a story of deprivation that has stuck with them during this pandemic, and mine is one of a selection offered by afriendsa of Boris Johnson, who were so concerned about his household finances a month ago that they went to the Daily Mail about it. We pick up the scene at a private gathering for some of these friends at the PMas country retreat, with Johnson holding court: aaEnjoy it,a he said before bellowing down the long dining table at Chequers: aEat every scrap. I have to pay for this you know!aa

Like me, your tears may have spontaneously liquefied at multiple such reports in recent months. If you missed them, let me summarise: a man who applied for a job which pays almost APS160,000 a year with hugely substantial benefits is apparently feeling unable to manage on almost APS160,000 a year with hugely substantial benefits. Yet this is only the half of it. aThe food wasnat even very good,a Johnsonas friend told the Mail, abut the real tragedy is that Boris canat really afford to entertain on any kind of scale. I am not going to accept another invitation because it seems unfair that he should fork out to feed me when he hasnat got any money.a

Rishi Sunak's ambition is on a collision course with Boris Johnson's ego | Rafael Behr
Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2020 15:36:53 GMT
From https:

Tensions over spending offer a taste of civil strife to come in a Tory party that is unprepared for the pandemic long haul

Any politician who strives to be prime minister also thinks about ways to deny that ambition, cultivating the idea they could do the job without sounding too greedy for it. Rishi Sunakas method, when asked if he wants to take over from Boris Johnson, is to say that his current role as chancellor is hard enough. It is a clever formula a the modesty of a precocious apprentice. It sounds like anoa but means anot yeta.

It is true that Sunak has his hands full at the Treasury. He also got there fast, after less than four years in parliament. A 40-year-old with not many miles on the political clock can usually afford to take time on the journey to the very top, although his peers in the Tory party have no doubt that No 10 is the preferred destination. They describe a man whose incandescent ambition dazzles even when sheathed in self-deprecation.

England's food is awful a and the Tories still refuse to give it to children | Joel Golby

In the row over providing free school meals during holidays, ashall we feed children?a has become a complex question

We have a lot to say about eating food right now for a culture whose cuisine essentially boils down to acan I put the word apuddinga on the end of it?a Black pudding. Yorkshire pudding. Steak and kidney pudding. This is a country where we consider the detritus from a deep-fryer as a fun treat that deserves its own name (ascrapsa). This is a country where haute cuisine is splaying open a bag of Scampi Fries in front of a warm pint of ale with the hearty offer to adig ina. Our food is awful, and we still refuse to give it to the children.

Quick recap: the Tories voted against extending free school meals to children in England during holidays until Easter 2021. In other words, itas been a fretful week of worrying whether choosing to deprive children of lunch during holidays is afundamentally evila or asavvy conservative fiscal policya, and frankly the fact that weave managed to get through it without calling an election or forcing some sort of referendum (Nigel Farage ceremonially floating down the Thames on a freight ship full of pink custard, shouting aNONE OF THIS FOR YOUa at local schoolchildren that have been assembled on each bridge) seems like blessed relief.

Rebalancing power away from Westminster is vital | Letters

From https:

Readers respond to an article by John Harris on why the highly centralised model of governance is failing the country

John Harris is right (The rest of the country will suffer so long as Westminster holds the purse strings, 26 October) a we need to think about what sort of Britain we need to overcome the huge regional inequalities in the UK, and England in particular. The rows between the mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, and Westminster indicate a sea change in attitudes towards our centralised state. While Burnham and the other city-region mayors represent a move towards regional democracy, it remains partial. They are elected as individuals, without the democratic backup that the devolved nations in the UK have.

Harris refers to the German model of local and regional democracy a we have so much to learn from it. The German regions are political entities, not individual fiefdoms, and have strong powers. Effective local government works as a partner with the regional tier. England desperately needs regional government that takes power out of the centre. That means a massive rebalancing of power with, ultimately, a federal solution that would be acceptable to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2020 10:17:54 GMT
From https:

Itas not only Roe v Wade on the line. Parental leave, affordable childcare, equal pay, the Affordable Care Act - all are under threat

The pandemic and its collateral economic crisis have illustrated like never before that women are the backbone of America. Before Covid-19, women made up more than half the workforce, nearly two-thirds of minimum-wage workers, and the majority of caregivers. One in three jobs held by women has been designated as essential. Right now, millions of women are pulling off an impossible balancing act: working while trying to keep their families safe and healthy during a terrifying time. Others have lost jobs, have had their wages or hours cut, and more than 800,000 women have left the workforce.

This crisis is disproportionately burdening women, especially women of color. They need immediate relief, but instead of solving this crisis, Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have focused on one thing: pushing through a supreme court nominee who wants to take away healthcare for millions and strip away rights women have had for decades. And theyare doing it against the will of the majority of Americans, who believe that voters should decide who makes the next appointment to the court.

US election 2020: are Democrats taking black voters for granted in Wisconsin?
Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2020 03:00:37 GMT
From https:

The Guardian US reporter Kenya Evelyn grew up in Milwaukee, in the swing state of Wisconsin. She recently returned to see how this yearas pandemic, recession and Black Lives Matter protests are shifting the cityas politics

In recent years, Wisconsin has come to play a crucial role in deciding the presidential election. In 2008 and 2012, Barack Obama comfortably won there. But in 2016, Donald Trump took the state by a margin of just 23,000 votes. That year, 93,000 black voters in the city of Milwaukee stayed home on election day.

The Guardian US reporter Kenya Evelyn recently returned to her home city and tells Mythili Rao what she heard when she spoke to black voters about what this election means to them. The Democrats had expected to hold their convention in Milwaukee a but when the pandemic forced the party to go virtual, an anticipated $200m economic boom instead spiralled into a substantial loss. The pivot was also the final straw for many of the cityas African American residents. The coronavirus shutdown worsened national crises that disproportionately devastated black Americans across the country, exacerbating racial inequalities in Milwaukee. Many activists told Evelyn that it could stifle local efforts to solicit enthusiasm for Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris. Itas a warning for Democrats not to take black voters for granted.

Sarah Cooper: Everythingas Fine review a Trump lip-syncer ratchets up the hysteria

From https:

Netflix
From Helen Mirren as Trumpas wingman to Marisa Tomei as Satan, this Netflix special is a funny and striking document of what living feels like in this fraught and febrile year

How do you turn a handful of lip-sync videos on TikTok into a Netflix special? Thatas the challenge faced by US comic Sarah Cooper, who made her name this year miming online to the words of Donald Trump. The trick drew tighter focus on just how weird the presidentas speech (and his ideas) can be, with only the subtlest of send-ups required from Cooper a a changed context here, a glimpse of fleeting hysteria behind the eyes there.

The hysteria is ratcheted up in Everythingas Fine, a faux morning news broadcast spliced with a psycho-absurdist trepan into the overheated mind of 2020 America. It torpedoes any concerns that Cooper might be merely a lip-sync novelty a although the lip-syncing does feature, notably in the scorching scene that brings Trumpas apussy-grabbinga dialogue to gender-bending life. Helen Mirren, of all people, co-stars, as Trumpas wingman Billy Bush, among a hatful of glitzy stars that includes Ben Stiller as a robot CEO, Whoopi Goldberg and Marisa Tomei as Satan.

Jerry Jeff Walker: the 'outlaw' songwriter who gave Mr Bojangles to the world
Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2020 12:09:51 GMT
From https:

Walker, who has died aged 78, was a maverick of Americana whose best known song was recorded by Nina Simone, Sammy Davis Jr and Robbie Williams

Mr Bojangles become a standard as soon as it was first recorded in 1968. Nina Simone did a beautiful version. Bob Dylan did a dreadful version. Sammy Davis Jr built it into the centrepiece of his live show. Mr Bojangles appealed to cabaret, jazz and folk singers (even Robbie Williams sang it). This tale of a worn-out hoofer who the narrator encounters when both men are locked up in a New Orleans jail has a gentle melancholy and a wistful melody; it is reflective of time passing and hardships experienced. Less well known was its author, Jerry Jeff Walker, who has died in Texas at the age of 78. Walker never became a household name. Some would consider him a one-hit wonder. But to his legions of fans he was a maverick, a musician whose offbeat music and presence ensured their devotion.

Walker lived a thoroughly American life: born Ronald Clyde Crosby in Oneonta, New York, he played in rockanaroll bands as a teenager then, impressed by Woody Guthrie and Jack Kerouac, lived an itinerant buskeras life hitching around the US. It was during this time that he spent the night in a New Orleans jail. Returning to New York City, he played the Greenwich Village folk clubs (adopting the stage name Jerry Jeff Walker in 1966) and co-founded the folk-rock group Circus Maximus with Bob Bruno. They released two albums that attracted some attention but Walker left the group to concentrate on his solo career. His debut album, 1968as Mr Bojangles, won good reviews but sold slowly. But other artists started recording the title song: country-rock outfit the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band reached No 9 in the US charts in 1971 with their version.

The Silence by Don DeLillo review a Beckett for the Facebook age
Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2020 11:00:55 GMT
From https:

Five characters attempt to deal with a digital shutdown in New York in DeLilloas strangely heartless novella

Itas not coincidental, I think, that two major novelists have published books this year in which Albert Einstein plays a prominent role. In Ali Smithas Summer, the proto-fascist schoolboy Robert Greenlaw searches for traces of Einsteinas presence in England and, through his reading of Einsteinas work, comes to understand better his place in space and time. Now, in his 18th novel, The Silence, Don DeLillo gives us Martin Dekker, an intense and inscrutable young man who is alost in his compulsive study of Einsteinas 1912 Manuscript on the Special Theory of Relativitya. Both novels ask us to consider what Einstein would have made of the unique strangeness of our technological world, particularly how the internet has changed our relationship to time.

The Silence opens on an aeroplane. Jim Kripps and Tessa Berens are returning from Europe when their plane drops out of the sky. Itas the first indication of the acommunications screw-upa that has caused all technology to grind to a sudden and catastrophic halt. Jim and Tessa escape the crash landing with scratches and a in the strange, dreamlike logic of this slight, surreal novel a make their way to the New York home of Max Stenner and Diane Lucas. The year is 2022 and itas the day of Super Bowl LVI, when most Americans would be huddled around their televisions. Instead, thereas no television, no internet, and so Max and Diane sit with Dianeas former student, Martin, and wait. Jim and Tessa arrive, the day passes, Martin quotes Einstein. The story ends with no resolution, and little explanation as to what has caused the shutdown.

As an Act of Protest review a tough-to-watch encounter with racism re-emerges
Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2020 17:00:19 GMT
From https:

This film from 2001 contains topical ideas and material, but its repetitiveness and lack of cinematic style make it clear why it hasnat found a wide audience

As an Act of Protest premiered at the American Black film festival in 2001, but only now has it received distribution. In retrospect thatas no great mystery: itas a self-consciously confrontational acinematic poema about a difficult subject. Itas also possible that director Dennis Leroy Kangalee would have considered it selling out to court a wider audience, at least based on the disgruntled theatre-group leader he plays on screen.

Kangalee a real New York dramatist and poet, who worked with politically progressive theatre groups in the years leading up to 9/11. From the poorly lit shots and awkward editing, itas clear that theatre, not film, is his first creative language. The scriptas digs at aHollywood directorsa suggest this may even be a point of pride. Some more entertaining scenes are also set in a chaotic rehearsal space, as arguing actors raise their voices to compete with the noise from outdoor drilling and a discordant jazz soundtrack.

In the nearly four years since, the womenas movement has cascaded through the national consciousness a feminism as mainstream slogan, as #MeToo, as political movement undergirding the blue wave, as central framing.
