Brexiter Tories tell Boris Johnson backstop is not only problem with withdrawal agreement - live news
Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2019 10:55:22 GMT
From https:

Rolling coverage of the dayas political developments as they happen

On a visit to a kidas lunch club in Wales Jeremy Corbyn will accuse the government of failing a whole generation of children. In a news release issued in advance, Corbyn highlights the recent report from the childrenas commissioner for England saying 210,000 young people are living in temporary accommodation, with thousands staying in converted shipping containers. He also cites figures showing that 30% of children in England are living in poverty and that poorer children are much more likely to get low grades in their GCSEs than their richer peers.

In a statement in the news release Corbyn said:

Working class children are still being held back while their wealthy peers get ahead. The next Labour government will take radical action to unlock the potential of every child, not just a lucky few.

The Tories are failing a whole generation of children.

The press release issued by Labour to mark Mr Corbynas visit ato Walesa spoke of a report by the childrenas commissioner for England and plans that Mr Corbyn has for a UK Labour government. Much of what he has in mind is devolved, and so would have no effect in Wales.

At best, Mr Corbyn is politically illiterate and simply doesnat understand how devolved government works. At worst, he is purposefully ignoring the fact that his own party a which runs the Welsh government a has run out of ideas and motivation to improve the lives of people in Wales.

You can read all todayas Guardian politics stories here. Iave already mentioned the Telegraph story about Brexiter Tories telling Boris Johnson that the backstop is not the only problem with the withdrawal agreement. (See 8.37am.) Here are some other interesting stories from the dayas papers.

Stephen Barclay, the Brexit Secretary, and his officials will now be ordered to aturbochargea work on how to find alternative arrangements to the Northern Ireland backstop.

Their work is expected to focus on examining proposals in a 270-page report drawn up by Greg Hands, the former Tory minister, and Nicky Morgan, now the culture secretary.

In June, I presented a report on the issue to a gathering of German cabinet members and senior German entrepreneurs and industrialists who showed great interest in finding solutions to the backstop.

Unlike the ideological technocrats in Brussels who have refused point blank to consider any way of getting around this seemingly intractable problem, politicians and business folk are more pragmatic a including Chancellor Merkel. She has been indicating her willingness to be more practical on Brexit for some time.

A plan under consideration would see the scope of the backstop whittled down and largely confined to covering livestock, plus animal and plant products.

The private discussions amongst diplomats in Brussels at still at an early stage, but still contrasts with the EUas public line that the Withdrawal Agreement cannot be reopened.

Charles Grant, director of the Centre for European Reform, another think-tank, said there was a rich history of UK politicians and pundits drawing the wrong conclusions from remarks made by the German chancellor. aThe British like to assume that Germany will solve their problems. [Former British prime minister] David Cameron made this mistake several times.a

Mr Cameron was accused by the opposition Labour party of relying far too much on Ms Merkel during his efforts to secure new EU membership terms for the UK before the 2016 Brexit referendum.

The rebels, who are described as the aRemain alliancea and are led by Philip Hammond, have been working on plans to push through legislation that will force Boris Johnson to request an extension of the article 50 process.

However, Downing Street sources have pointed out that Brussels could simply reject any request for an extension, even if Mr Johnson is legally bound to ask for one.

Tarantino's gruesome revenge fantasies are growing more puerile and misogynistic | Caspar Salmon
Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2019 10:25:16 GMT
From https:

The director dials up the stomach-churning violence in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. If only he had something meaningful to say

Warning: this story contains spoilers

Compare and contrast two screen deaths. In Quentin Tarantinoas second film, Pulp Fiction in 1994, John Travoltaas Vincent Vega accidentally shoots Marvin, a minor character, in the face. The killing happens mid-sentence, in the blink of an eye; in the process Vince covers himself and his acolyte Jules in blood and guts. The scene is played for laughs and succeeds: the horror and suddenness of the event coax an appalled hilarity from viewers, exacerbated by the two hitmenas reaction, which is to bicker about mundane practicalities.

In Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Manson family member Susan Atkins, who slaughtered Sharon Tate and two others with her accomplices in 1969, is killed in self-defence by Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) and Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), by being beaten in the face with a tin can, savaged by a dog and torched with a flamethrower. The scene is also played for comic effect, but in a diametrically opposite way, since the intended humour derives from how prolonged and over the top the brutality is. The violence, though stomach-churning, plays out on a surreal sort of Tex Avery level.

One Friday, my partner was having an early night, so a friend came over with a few bottles of wine. Soon I was in the queue for Lab, Berlinas most notorious men-only Friday night party.

I popped a Viagra before leaving the house, because I find it difficult to get an erection if Iave been drinking (my boyfriend and I are in an open relationship). When I hooked up with a handsome, bearded nurse, I suggested we go back to my place, where he proposed he give me an erection-enhancing injection. I was hesitant. I had tried something similar a few years before; it had hurt a bit and I had stayed hard for longer than I wanted to. But the nurse seemed really keen, so I consented.

Sorry, Mr Trump a Greenlandas no go. But can I interest you in this other little island? | Jack Bernhardt

Itas called the United Kingdom. Itas in a bit of a state, but itas a great opportunity for the right buyer

People say that news these days is unexpected and baffling, but really could there be a more predictably 2019 story than aDonald Trump wants to buy Greenlanda? It has all the boring trappings of a typical Trump story a gobsmacking ignorance, casual racism, colonialist attitudes towards the treatment of indigenous people, a cold-hearted, transactional view of human life, and ending with him calling a woman in power anastya. If the news were a binge-worthy drama, this would be a mid-series episode that The AV Club would rate C-: aa worryingly formulaic outing that makes you fear the writers have run out of ideas.a

The whole idea was a nonstarter anyway a Greenland is a proud, independent region. What kind of self-respecting island nation would willingly accept being purchased by the United States? If Trump wants to buy somewhere, he needs to find somewhere thatas been entirely stripped of pride, dignity and joy to the extent that it is now completely incapable of self-governance. A country so humiliated and degraded that it would happily grovel at the feet of an expansionist empire if it just promised the slightest iota of stability.

The rainforest might seem a remote place, but it is the heart of the planet a and it is under attack as never before

The Amazon is the centre of the world. Right now, as our planet experiences climate collapse, there is nowhere more important. If we donat grasp this, there is no way to meet that challenge.

For 500 years, this has been a place of ruins. First with the European invasion, which brought a particularly destructive form of civilisation, the death of hundreds of thousands of indigenous men and women and the extinction of dozens of peoples. More recently, with the clearance of vast swaths of the forest and all life within it. Right now, in 2019, we are witnessing the beginning of a new, disastrous chapter. The area of trees being cleared has surged this year. In July, the deforestation rate was an area the size of Manhattan every day, a Greater London every three weeks. This month, fires are incinerating the Amazon at a record rate, almost certainly part of a scorched-earth strategy to clear territory. Why is this happening now? Because of a change in power.

He blocks once, then tries a square drive to a fuller ball but is only half-forward, and mistimes it to point. Heas in two minds now. So Cummins goes short again, just off line towards the batsmanas right shoulder, and Burns tries to hook but is done for pace and can only glove it down leg side!

Appropriate review a Branden Jacobs-Jenkins pushes everything to the limit

From https:

Donmar Warehouse, London
Dark secrets emerge as three siblings gather at their late fatheras old plantation home in this daring drama

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is a subversive writer. In An Octoroon, based on a 19th-century Dion Boucicault melodrama, he questioned what it meant to be dubbed aa black playwrighta. In this play, also dating from 2014, he appropriates the classic American family drama with results that are both gravely serious and mordantly funny.

The focus is on the Lafayette clan who have gathered at their late fatheras crumbling old plantation home in Arkansas to sort out their inheritance. Even by the standards of theatrical families, they are notably dysfunctional. Toni, the eldest, is embittered, rancorous and foul-tongued. The middle child, Bo, shows an insatiable appetite for money. Frank, the youngest, is a reformed addict with paedophile tendencies. But the arguments about property are superseded by the discovery of a photo album suggesting that their father, a supposedly liberal lawyer, was a closet racist obsessed with pictures of dead black people.

The machine always wins: what drives our addiction to social media
Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2019 05:00:12 GMT
From https:

Social media was supposed to liberate us, but for many people it has proved addictive, punishing and toxic. What keeps us hooked? By Richard Seymour

We are swimming in writing. Our lives have become, in the words of the author and academic Shoshana Zuboff, an aelectronic texta. Social media platforms have created a machine for us to write to. The bait is that we are interacting with other people: our friends, colleagues, celebrities, politicians, royals, terrorists, porn actors a anyone we like. We are not interacting with them, however, but with the machine. We write to it, and it passes on the message for us after keeping a record of the data.

The machine benefits from the anetwork effecta: the more people write to it, the more benefits it can offer, until it becomes a disadvantage not to be part of it. Part of what? The worldas first ever public, live, collective, open-ended writing project. A virtual laboratory. An addiction machine, which deploys crude techniques of manipulation redolent of the Skinner Box created by behaviourist BF Skinner to control the behaviour of pigeons and rats with rewards and punishments. We are users, much as cocaine addicts are users.

Joe Biden inspires no one a not even his own wife | Bhaskar Sunkara
Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2019 07:00:06 GMT
From https:

Can we stop pretending that Joe Biden is the inevitable 2020 candidate?

Much like Hillary Clinton in 2016, Joe Bidenas Democratic primary campaign has thus far cloaked itself in an aura of inevitability. You might not like Joe Biden. He might say racist or sexist stuff from time to time. His gaffes might be occurring at an alarming rate. He might have uninspiring policy ideas. But heas going to win the primary anyway, so you better get used to him.

That was the subtext, at least, and an explanation for how banal Bidenas campaign has been so far. If victory is certain, why not hold the ball and milk the clock? Jill Biden, the former vice-presidentas wife, made the case bizarrely explicit on MSNBC earlier this week. aYour candidate might be better on, I donat know, health care, than Joe is,a Biden said, abut youave got to look at whoas going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, aOkay, I personally like so-and-so better,a but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.a

When calling out environmental hypocrisy is nothing but a cynical ploy | Zoe Williams
Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2019 04:59:03 GMT
From https:
Those who would benefit from climate inaction try to sabotage green politics by criticising activists. We must resist them

Ever since Al Gore first launched his climate crusade, the sight of any given public figure making the case for action, anywhere other than in their own home, has frequently been met with the following genre of response: if you care so much, how come you took a plane? If you didnat take a plane, how much did the alternative cost? How much steel does a train use these days, anyway? Wouldnat it be cheaper, ergo greener, not to go anywhere?

In Bolsonaroas burning Brazilian Amazon, all our futures are being consumed | Eliane Brum

From https:
The rainforest might seem a remote place, but it is the heart of the planet a and it is under attack as never before

The Amazon is the centre of the world. Right now, as our planet experiences climate collapse, there is nowhere more important. If we donat grasp this, there is no way to meet that challenge.

For 500 years, this has been a place of ruins. First with the European invasion, which brought a particularly destructive form of civilisation, the death of hundreds of thousands of indigenous men and women and the extinction of dozens of peoples. More recently, with the clearance of vast swaths of the forest and all life within it. Right now, in 2019, we are witnessing the beginning of a new, disastrous chapter. The area of trees being cleared has surged this year. In July, the deforestation rate was an area the size of Manhattan every day, a Greater London every three weeks. This month, fires are incinerating the Amazon at a record rate, almost certainly part of a scorched-earth strategy to clear territory. Why is this happening now? Because of a change in power.

A Faithful Man review a drearily frothy French romcom
Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2019 06:00:12 GMT
From https:

The female objects of desire in this disappointing mA(c)nage A trois comedy by Louis Garrel are more fantasies than characters

French actor Louis Garrel pays homage here to Woody Allenas ego by co-writing, directing and starring in a film in which two drop-dead-gorgeous women go to war over him. (Naturally, one is much younger than Garrel.)

A Faithful Man bombs the Bechdel test, of course. But it seems to me that it fails an even more basic test of humanity, since this pair of female adventurers arenat even really characters, so much as fantasies. Itas a shame because Garrel directs with frothy light-touch flair.

Hong Kong businesses fear protests will push economy into recession

Amid mass demonstrations and a trade war, financial observers say the cityas slowdown could deepen

Hong Kong is a free marketeras dream. The tiny island has a GDP bigger than many industrialised countries, low tax and abundant cheap labour, and is a world-class financial centre boasting a stock market with a total value of more than APS2.5tn.

No wonder then that the cityas most powerful vested interests are showing signs of nerves after 11 weeks of street protests that have paralysed the city, prompting its biggest political crisis since the handover to China in 1997 and threatening to push it into recession. Even worse, some observers believe the standoff could destroy Hong Kongas cherished entrepot status and send it on a journey of no return into Chinaas orbit.

I check myself for symptoms constantly, my anxiety spirals, and fear of disclosure eventually destroys every relationship I have

I had always practised safe sex, but contracted genital herpes eight years ago. Following my diagnosis my world folded, and I stayed with the man I contracted it from for months because I thought nobody else would want me.

I have the less severe type of herpes, which is difficult to pass on. If a partner already gets cold sores, then it is next to impossible for them to contract the virus again through sex. All this should make me feel better, and it does a until I meet someone I like. Then rational thinking goes out of the window. I begin every new relationship with massive anxiety and a fear of rejection.
