Now this is not the end. Itas not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. The Labour leadership contest already feels like it has lasted an eternity and thereas a fair chance that by the time it ends on 4 April half the country will never get to find out who has actually won because they will have died of the coronavirus. Actually, scrub that. With Matt Hancock in charge of the NHS, the mortality rate could be significantly higher.

Weinstein's enablers: how associates helped him silence accusers for years

With 105 women having levelled accusations against him, how he managed to avoid trouble for decades is now a burning issue

As the dust settles over the Harvey Weinstein trial, following the disgraced movie mogulas conviction in New York for rape and a criminal sex act that could see him put behind bars for up to 29 years, a looming question remains: how did he evade justice for so long?

Miriam Haley, a then Project Runway production assistant on whom Weinstein, 67, forced oral sex at his SoHo apartment, was attacked in 2006. Dawn Dunning, an aspiring actor who Weinstein lured to the InterContinental hotel in Manhattan then offered her movie roles on the condition she had a threesome with him and another woman, endured that humiliation in 2004.

The Ashford hair boom: how does one market town support 28 hair salons?

From https:

After it was revealed that the town in Kent has 28 hairdresseras for only 75,000 people, we sent a reporter to find out why

Ashford in Kent made the news this week when someone counted the number of hairdresseras in the town: 28, eight of which are huddled together on a 200-metre stretch of the high street. That is an awful lot of stylists for a place with a population of only 75,000. It raises the question: is this market town with a Eurostar station an untapped source of styling excellence?

When I visit Ashford, I am greeted by a lot of short back and sides and woollen hats, a messy ginger up-do and some copper-coloured box braids coiled into a bun. A slender woman with an auburn blow-dry, sunglasses perched on top, gets into the passenger seat of a car. Another with a wet-look perm, dyed black and shiny, walks past a tall guy waiting in line to pay for parking: tight fade, baseball cap, absolutely stellar facial hair and mismatched socks.

There has been a spate of news stories about drunken passengers causing trouble in the air. Do flight attendants think the skies are becoming more lawless?

Here are a few stories from the past week or so: a drunk woman tried to open a plane door on the way to Turkey; a court is told of a drunken disturbance which caused a flight to Agadir to be diverted to Casablanca; and a plane bound for Iceland made an emergency landing in Edinburgh after an inebriated man tried to eat his phone.

It looks like a spate, or at least the echo of one a this run of alcohol-related incidents from last year, all reached court in the same fortnight. But there have been plenty more in 2020: a drunk escorted off a London to Mexico flight in Winnipeg; two more arrested on landing at Doncaster Sheffield airport; an alcohol fuelled squabble on a flight from Stansted to Malaga.

If the government is serious about doing right by its new voters, it needs to rewire the way it thinks about spending

Britain is going backwards.

We have all got so used to life expectancy ticking steadily ever upwards that many of us had started taking that progress for granted, yet a new report by the legendary epidemiologist and former government adviser Sir Michael Marmot provides a timely bucket of cold water. For women living in the poorest parts of Britain, lives are now getting shorter; both men and women are also spending longer in chronic ill health towards the end of their lives, meaning the time they do have left is painfully constrained. The gears are crunching into reverse, according to his findings for the independent charity the Health Foundation.

Labouras leadership election is haunted by guilt and shame | Zoe Williams
Date: Tue, 25 Feb 2020 18:33:39 GMT
From https:

Some call the contest boring, but the despair felt by members since 12 December inhibits any sense of enthusiasm

Some say the Labour leadership election is boring, but boredom is in the eye of the beholder. So far, from the outside, it has not ignited; it lacks passion, the candidates differ only in presentation. Even from the inside, among party members, a common enough sentiment is, let this contest end and someone win. There is a sense that the candidates are not doing enough either to differentiate themselves or to upturn expectations. It is not the candidates themselves who lack verve, but their supporters. Every candidate has their fans, but they are shy, which is the opposite of what fandom is supposed to be about.

The twist of the 2016 US election was the revelation that supporters didnat matter as much as astansa a wild enthusiasts, evangelists, people who would wear a candidateas face as a tattoo. Itas the Joan of Arc view of politics: we donat even need 100 people so strong, just 10 could do it, with God on their side (God, here, standing in for the might of conviction).

The Guardian view on the new coronavirus: buying time can save lives | Editorial
Date: Tue, 25 Feb 2020 18:37:15 GMT
From https:

Many experts believe this outbreak will soon be declared a pandemic. Even if it is not containable, it can still be slowed

It now appears almost inevitable that the new coronavirus outbreak will soon be identified as a global pandemic. There has been a surge in cases in Iran, South Korea and Italy, and incidents confirmed in numerous countries, in addition to the almost 80,000 cases seen in China. The World Health Organization argues that it is not a pandemic a spreading internationally in an uncontrolled way a because it is cautiously optimistic that Chinaas outbreak may have peaked thanks to the strict measures adopted by Beijing. Others say this is already a pandemic in all but name.

The WHOas hesitance may be partly due to its concern about the public reaction, as rational worries combine with limited medical knowledge, xenophobia and broader anxieties. aUsing the word pandemic now does not fit the facts, but it may certainly cause fear,a the WHO director general, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned on Monday. As concern spreads, economic effects are growing alongside the human toll. Stock markets have taken a hammering. Airlines are suffering, major international events are being cancelled, and companies dependent on Chinese-made components have halted production.

Weare constantly being invoked to shore up peopleas opinions on Brexit. Hereas what we really think about it (at the moment)

Historians of the future will not judge us kindly. Historians of the future will vindicate us. (Historians of the future can feel their ears burning.) In the context of the debate around Brexit, and the past few years of turbulent political developments around the world, it feels like future historians have never been more present.

The appeal to the future historian is a common trope in times of crisis. The historian of the future is pictured as a horrified figure, peering back at the madness of contemporary life. So, people claim that the future historian will be baffled, or alarmed, or confused by what is going on right now. Historians of the future, who are rational adults, will not understand why we behave in the ridiculous ways that we do. This functions as a sort of gentle chiding, a call for us to be more sensible.

Bernie Sanders can't be bought a his campaign is making me strangely hopeful | Arwa Mahdawi
Date: Tue, 25 Feb 2020 14:00:51 GMT
From https:

Confidence in democracy has been taking a hammering, so how refreshing to see a politician with big ideas win hearts and minds

Democracy did not die in 2003, but a lot of peopleas faith in it did. Just over 17 years ago, I was one of the millions of people around the world who marched against the Iraq war. The energy on the streets in London was electrifying; it was the biggest protest in British history. The government, I naively thought at the time, would have to listen. The government, of course, did not listen. A few weeks later, Iraq was illegally invaded. This great betrayal galvanised a few of my friends into activism. But it left me, and many others, disillusioned at best and apathetic at worst. My student idealism withered and I lost confidence in the democratic process.

In the past few days, however, something strange has started to happen: I have begun to feel hopeful about politics again. In the US, the growing success of Bernie Sandersa grassroots movement in the Democractic presidential nominations has restored my faith in people power. It has made me dare to hope that a second Donald Trump term may not be as inevitable as I previously thought it was. It made me dare to hope that a more equitable America a and, by extension, a more equitable world a really might be around the corner.

The Twilight Zone review a a dire, half-hearted reboot

From https:

The much-loved science fiction show returns thanks to Jordan Peele, the comedy-horror maestro behind Get Out. What a pity it isnat a patch on the original

Even to read about the original Twilight Zone, the brainchild of Rod Serling that premiered in 1959 and ran for five years, is to be consumed immediately by the need to watch (or re-watch) all 156 episodes. Every premise snags the attention, even if the twist is known. Many have entered into pop cultural consciousness and remained there ever since, so deeply did Serling and his expert team of writers and directorsa barbs embed. It is still impossible to resist the lure.

With such a potent asset in the archives, it would have been foolish to hope that perfection could have remained unsullied for long. It was rebooted once in 1985 and again nearly 20 years ago (for one dismal season) and now, perhaps because anthology series are having a moment, the time has been judged right for a new one. The latest is executive produced by Jordan Peele, a director who is in the middle of his own well-earned moment, built on his critically lauded and commercially successful film debut Get Out in 2017 and buffed by last yearas equally acclaimed horror Us.

From joyful sketches of old friends to a nude meeting with Picasso a when Hockney wields his pencil we see the undisguised truth
Celia Birtwell on being drawn by Hockney

When it comes to wielding a pencil, an etching needle or just a felt pen, David Hockney has no rivals. Lucian Freudas etchings bore me senseless, Francis Bacon barely doodled, but Hockney is a graphic master. His retrospective of a life of portrait drawing is the most dazzling display of his art I have ever seen.

Forget the rants about smoking, or the personality that has always made him so lovable. Hockney here is not a star but a stare. In self-portraits drawn with a steady black line, he eyeballs himself in the mirror, mercilessly seeing lank hair and a skinny body. He draws his own eyes through the unforgiving lenses of his spectacles. Itas uncomfortable to stand close to those eyes a the sense of Hockney sizing you up is almost oppressive. This series was made in 1983, when he was still blond, but he can see himself getting older. What does the future hold? The intensity of Hockneyas self-inspection, fag in mouth, bears comparison with Rembrandt. When an artist looks so hard into the mirror, we share what they see a we are invited into the undisguised truth.

Holy housing developments! How God is getting into construction

Cash-strapped churches are raising money by inviting developers to build pricey flats on their turf. Is this the promised land for faith buildings a or a deal with the devil?

High-end Bosch appliances, carpeted bedrooms, generous storage a and a three-storey wooden cross right outside the window. The apartments of Upper Place sound like any other new development in east London, sold on their edgy urban location and proximity to artisanal coffee shops, except these particular flats come with the added promise of bringing you closer to God. Other blocks might boast a private gym, but here you can pop downstairs to see the priest for a workout of a more spiritual kind.

Sandwiched between a Tesco Express and a used-furniture shop, this new holy housing project is a surprising thing to encounter on a high street in Hackney. The supersized wooden cross is bolted to a gigantic white concrete frame, projecting out in front of rows of balconies adorned with balustrades tinted in a range of bright Tooty Frootie colours, as if a nod to a stained-glass window. A big TV screen at the entrance advertises the lively services of the Upper Clapton United Reformed Church that await within, conducted by the charismatic white-suited Rev John Macaulay in a large ground-floor space, illuminated from above by a cross-shaped skylight.

The law, which the rest of the one-party south would adopt throughout the Jim Crow era, said only white people could vote in the Democratic primary election.

White people, mostly men, would alone choose who would go on to the general election in November. Then, and only then could African Americans and others, who had managed to squeeze through the array of voter suppression tactics such as the poll tax and the literacy test, cast their meaningless ballots.

Yes, Weinstein was acquitted of the two most serious charges leveled against him: predatory sexual assault is a class-A felony. But the crimes he was convicted of are extremely serious, and Weinstein now faces as long as 25 years in prison. Heas also facing additional charges in Los Angeles.

A 'brokered convention' designed to block Bernie Sanders would be a poison pill | Nathan Robinson

From https:

If the Democratic party doesnat allow the person with most delegates to become the nominee, it will be a disaster

Something deeply troubling happened during last weekas Democratic presidential debate, though it was overshadowed by Michael Bloombergas spectacular implosion. Towards the end, the candidates were asked whether they believed that the person who receives the most votes should be given the Democratic nomination. The only candidate who said ayesa was Bernie Sanders. All of the others said they wanted the aprocessa to aplay outa.

Itas not surprising that the non-Sanders candidates donat want awinning the primariesa to determine who the nominee is, because by that measure, itas very unlikely to be any of them. Sanders has lately taken a commanding lead in the polls and is now the favorite to win in the vast majority of states. He received more votes than any other candidate in both Iowa and New Hampshire, which political scientists treat as a strong sign that a candidate will ultimately win. There are growing concerns in the party that Sandersa lead may be becoming ainsurmountablea.

Trump views India as another state to turn red on his 2020 campaign trail

Trumpas trip was strategically designed to stoke themes of nationalism and protectionism for Indian Americans

Donald Trump made headlines this week while touring India alongside prime minister and atrue frienda Narendra Modi, with plenty of fanfare, botched speeches, and questionable broccoli samosas along the way.

But this was not just a diplomatic trip for Trump, who made a visible appearance at the Howdy Modi rally held by the Indian diaspora in Houston, Texas, last year. Nor was it solely a display of solidarity with Modi and his far-right administration at a time when India is erupting in protest and sectarian violence centered around an ongoing lockdown and communications blackout in Kashmir, a controversial national registry bill and a stringent citizenship bill that would favor non-Muslim migrants.

From https:
The movie mogulas predatory behaviour was said to be ajust the way the industry worksa. Now, finally, that may change

Memories of some of my encounters with Harvey Weinstein over the past two decades, just off the top of my head: September 2006, arriving at the New York fashion show for the fashion label Marchesa, co-run by Weinsteinas now ex-wife Georgina Chapman. Weinstein prowled around the front row, crossing off a name on his list every time a famous actress arrived to watch the show. (Several actresses have since said Weinstein abullieda them into wearing Marchesa to high-profile events.)

In 2011, hiding in a bathroom in LA to get away from Weinstein because he blamed me personally for an article in the Guardianas business section that had reported financial difficulties at his company. In 2012, being called by one of Weinsteinas myriad assistants, when I was again in Los Angeles to cover the Oscars, to say that Weinstein had personally banned me from various restaurants because of aunfriendlya Guardian coverage. No specific date, as this was pretty much a constant over the past two decades: laughing knowingly with other journalists about how if we gave anything other than glowing coverage to his films, or actors in his films, Weinstein would ban us from his film screenings and threaten to pull advertising from our publications.

Bayern Munich and Gnabry drive Chelsea towards Champions League exit

This time Bayern Munich finished with the authority of a side with no interest in ever letting Chelsea off the hook again. The gulf in class was enormous from beginning to end and, while there will be no shortage of nostalgia before the second leg takes place at the Allianz Arena on 18 March, it is unlikely to feel like much more than a sightseeing exercise when Frank Lampardas erratic side visit the scene of their greatest triumph.

The painful truth is that a 3-0 defeat flattered Chelsea and, barring one of the greatest comebacks in the history of this competition, this tie is surely over. Bayern, seemingly on a mission to erase the memories of their inexplicable defeat to Chelsea in the 2012 final, were just as devastating as they were when they smashed Tottenham 7-2 in October. The Bundesliga pacesetters made the side sitting fourth in the Premier League look second-rate and all but secured their place in the last eight of the Champions League during a brutal second half, sealing an emphatic win with two goals from Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowskias 39th goal of the season.

As a Jewish writer, the flawed and controversial new show acts for me as an oddly empowering revenge fantasy

The showas notion of wit leaves something to be desired, whether itas one character going by the moniker aBootyholea or another cheekily saying head like to amazela a fetching womanas atova. Thatas of a piece with this very publicationas official review, in which writer Lucy Mangan dinged the pilot episode as atoo cool and self-conscious for its own gooda. It wants to be slick too badly to achieve the air of effortlessness required pull it off; a gimmicky sequence introduces a handful of the main cast by calling them up to light candles at a fantasy bar mitzvah, complete with corny one-liners conveying their legendary feats. Moreover, the creator David Weil has already begun to field controversy over his extreme depiction of the Holocaustas assorted horrors, with the Auschwitz Memorial Museum crying foul over the liberties taken with the facts.

From joyful sketches of old friends to a nude meeting with Picasso a when Hockney wields his pencil we see the undisguised truth
Celia Birtwell on being drawn by Hockney

When it comes to wielding a pencil, an etching needle or just a felt pen, David Hockney has no rivals. Lucian Freudas etchings bore me senseless, Francis Bacon barely doodled, but Hockney is a graphic master. His retrospective of a life of portrait drawing is the most dazzling display of his art I have ever seen.

Forget the rants about smoking, or the personality that has always made him so lovable. Hockney here is not a star but a stare. In self-portraits drawn with a steady black line, he eyeballs himself in the mirror, mercilessly seeing lank hair and a skinny body. He draws his own eyes through the unforgiving lenses of his spectacles. Itas uncomfortable to stand close to those eyes a the sense of Hockney sizing you up is almost oppressive. This series was made in 1983, when he was still blond, but he can see himself getting older. What does the future hold? The intensity of Hockneyas self-inspection, fag in mouth, bears comparison with Rembrandt. When an artist looks so hard into the mirror, we share what they see a we are invited into the undisguised truth.

What does Hair Loveas Oscar success say about diversity in Hollywood?
Date: Tue, 25 Feb 2020 14:32:45 GMT
From https:

The seven-minute animated short about a girl and her afro hair has won fans and critical acclaim a but the battle is far from won

On its release last year, Hair Love, a sweetly poignant film about an African-American fatheras efforts to style his daughter Zurias curls, became the latest in a handful of productions to take a deeper look at the cultural significance of afro hair. Chris Rockas 2009 documentary Good Hair memorably critiqued the billion-dollar black haircare industry, while 2018 rom-com Nappily Ever After explored one womanas fraught relationship with her natural hair in a society that was openly hostile towards it. It is vital that this subject continues to be explored, not least because incidents in the US, where a student wrestler was forced to cut his dreadlocks, and in the UK, where a pupil has been punished for wearing her afro, show hair discrimination is still rife.

While these films, and others like it, have received critical praise, it is Hair Loveas recent Oscar win for best animated short that has opened up a wider conversation about societyas perception of afro hair. The film was written and directed by film-maker and ex-NFL player Matthew A Cherry and funded by a Kickstarter campaign, which raised more than $200,000. David Steward II, one of the filmas producers and CEO of Lion Forge Animation, was enamoured with Hair Love from the moment he heard about it. He says: a[Co-producer] Karen Rupert Toliver mentioned this project she had that needed help getting off the ground. It ticked a lot of boxes for us in terms of the projects that weare looking at putting out.a

A reliably committed lead performance ignites a mostly enjoyable, often timely, take on the HG Wells story that falls apart in the final act

While some would argue that the worst thing to have spawned from Marvelas extended cinematic universe is an overreliance on the superhero genre in general, thereas been something arguably more damaging at play. The unprecedented commercial success of the interconnected, multi-branched nature of the MCEU caused other studios to crave similar long-term profits and so franchises suddenly grew exponentially, in every possible direction, whether they needed to or not. The most disastrous example of this came from Universal who saw the trend as a way of relaunching and combining their many monster movies as part of the newly coined Dark Universe. A logo was released along with a promotional image of cast members from films that hadnat yet started production, an ambitious yet ultimately foolish gamble given that the first of these, 2017as The Mummy, was then rejected by audiences and critics.
