Still, the nearly nine-year-old, San Francisco-based outfit got a lot right ahead of its highly successful direct listing this week, including, seemingly, inviting in former federal prosecutor Katie Haun to join its board in 2017.

Online job coaches ‘are exploiting the unemployed during pandemic’
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 05:30:54 GMT

Web support has boomed as Covid forces people to change career. But it can cost thousands, for little in return

When the pandemic hit, self-employed customer care consultant Madeleine Fisher* saw her income evaporate. “My business predominantly works in the leisure, hospitality and non-essential retail sectors and they all closed, or they didn’t have any budget for customer care. I went into panic mode,” she says.

As a limited company boss she had no government support to fall back on. The business owner decided to use almost a third of the £4,500 she had applied for under the government’s bounce-back loan scheme (set up to enable smaller businesses to access finance more quickly during the pandemic) – to pay for a coaching package with a “design influencer”.

British families took bigger hit to income during Covid pandemic than Europeans
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 06:45:01 GMT

UK’s greater inequality levels made impact worse for the less well off, study suggests

British households were plunged into the Covid pandemic with lower savings, more debt and weaker welfare support than their French and German counterparts, according to analysis revealing how inequality increased the impact of the UK crisis.

High levels of income inequality also weakened the financial resilience of poorer households as the pandemic hit. The greater exposure of British households, revealed in an analysis by the Resolution Foundation thinktank to be published in full this week, comes despite similar levels of average income with our European neighbours.

Dow, S&P 500 log back-to-back record closes to end strong week for stocks, buoyed by strong economic data, earnings
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 20:12:41 GMT

U.S. stocks on Friday finished the week on a strong note, with the Dow and S&P 500 posting their second consecutive closing records and the Nasdaq Composite ending within a stone's throw of its record. Bullish investors point to a strong start to earnings season from the likes of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Goldman Sachs Group coupled with blowout economic reports, notably a 10% rise in retail sales in March and weekly jobless claims figures falling to a pandemic low. Further helping lift buying momentum was a momentary pause in a climb for bond yields, which had previously been a sign of rising borrowing costs for investors and companies. The 10-year Treasury note yield finished at 1.571% on Friday, up on the day but down nearly 10 basis points on the week, marking its sharpest weekly drop in about 10 months. Against that backdrop, the Dow Jones Indusrtrial Average closed up by about 165 points, or 0.5%, to reach around 34,200, extending its climb beyond the 34,000 milestone achieved on Thursday. The S&P 500 index closed at a record high, up 0.4% to 4,185, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed up 0.1% at 14,052, about 0.3% from its closing high or a little over 40 points. For the week, the Dow booked a 1.2% gain and the S&P 500 ended 1.4% higher, marking their fourth consecutive weekly climbs. The Nasdaq Composite closed up 1.1% for the week to mark its third straight weekly advance.

The return of Tory sleaze: a scandal set to haunt Boris Johnson

What began as the shaming of David Cameron now threatens to drag the current government into a cesspit

It has been a dreadful few weeks for David Cameron, the former prime minister and golden boy of the Tory party. His reputation – already terribly damaged by losing the 2016 Brexit referendum and his subsequent resignation – has now sunk to depths that once would have seemed unimaginable.

After winning a majority at the 2015 election, and freed of the need for coalition partners, Whitehall civil servants remember Cameron and his chancellor, George Osborne, at their peaks, strutting around Downing Street, radiating extraordinary power and confidence.

How the UK government sidestepped the data on coronavirus – video explainer
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 11:37:52 GMT

This time last year, NHS bosses asked doctors and nurses to ‘wear aprons’ and work without protective full-length gowns when treating Covid-19 patients, as hospitals were within hours of running out of supplies.

This is just one example of how the UK government has been slammed for its handling of the pandemic, through a series of missteps, U-turns, lockdowns, denials – and more than 150,000 deaths.

Twelve months on, the Guardian's Pamela Duncan looks at three major areas where officials were out of line with the data on coronavirus infections and deaths available at the time.

A government spokesperson responded, saying: ‘Throughout the pandemic, our approach has been guided by data and the advice of scientific and medical experts … As new evidence emerged, we acted quickly and decisively to implement life-saving measures, including restrictions and lockdowns, to protect lives, livelihoods and our economy. We are doing everything we can to ensure care home residents and staff are protected, including providing more than 9.9 billion items of PPE to the frontline.’

Shares of Bank of New York Mellon Corp. were indicated up fractionally in premarket trading Friday, after the bank reported first-quarter profit and revenue that fell from a year ago, given the impact of low interest rates, but topped expectations.

Squarespace files for direct listing
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 18:21:58 GMT

Squarespace Inc. filed paperwork Friday for a direct-listing that would enable shares of the website-design company to trade on the New York Stock Exchange without the company raising money through a traditional initial public offering. Squarespace, which makes tools for building and hosting websites, generated revenue of $621.1 million in 2020, up from $484.8 million in 2019. The company is profitable but saw its net income decline to $30.6 million in 2020 from $58.2 million a year earlier. Squarespace had 3.66 million unique subscriptions to its platform as of the end of December. The company said in a filing that it's benefitting from a rise in online commerce and a growing interest from brands to develop better direct relationships with consumers. The company intends to list on the NYSE using the ticker SQSP. The company has yet to disclose when it plans to conduct the direct listing or how many shares will be made available in the process. Squarespace's filing comes after Coinbase Global Inc. held its own direct listing earlier this week.

Comcast could be a COVID recovery story even as cable stocks have lagged, analyst says in upgrade
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 12:50:09 GMT

Comcast Corp. "possesses a notable COVID-recovery component with its stores, parks, and theatrical business," which could help its stock even as defensive cable names have lagged recently, according to Raymond James analyst Frank Louthan IV. He upgraded shares of Comcast to outperform from market perform Friday while setting a $61 price target. Louthan sees room for upside from the NBCUniversal business, noting that Universal Studios Hollywood is reopening this week at limited capacity and with some restrictions. NBC has other open theme parks that were running at about 35% capacity late last year, with room to head higher. "We believe the uncertain timing of Universal Studios Hollywood reopening had been an overhang on the business," Louthan wrote in a note to clients. Louthan also sees potential in the company's Peacock streaming business and its mobility business. Peacock could start showing benefits from its exclusive streaming deal for "The Office" and could eventually come to reap rewards from the postponed Olympics, due to take place this summer, he argued. The mobility side of the business could show some improvements from the reopening of Xfinity stores, he continued. "Comcast appears to be giving up some gains from the renegotiation with Verizon this week, cutting prices by up to $15/month per line, implying aggressive promotions," Louthan wrote. "That said, we believe subscriber gains drive investor interest and significantly reduce churn." Shares of Comcast are up 1.3% in premarket trading Friday. They've gained 9.2% over the past three months as the S&P 500 has risen 10.7%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up more than 300 points at a fresh milestone at 34,000, on a preliminary basis, the S&P 500 index notched a 1.1% advance to log its all-time closing high at around 4,170 and the Nasdaq Composite Index finished 1.3% higher at about 14,039, marking its first finish above 14,000 since February and its third-highest close in its history. U.S. retail sales surged almost 10% in March thanks to $1,400 stimulus checks paid to consumers by the federal government. Sales climbed 9.8% last month, the government said Thursday. Economists polled by Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal had forecast a 6.1% increase.Adding to the market's optimism, weekly jobless benefit claims fell to a pandemic-era low. U.S. unemployment claims sank by 193,000 in the week of April 10, an unusually large decline that likely reflects both an improving economy but also continuing problems in processing applications for jobless benefits.

David Cameron’s lobbying scandal
Thu, 15 Apr 2021 02:00:23 GMT

The Guardian’s banking correspondent, Kalyeena Makortoff, and political correspondent Rajeev Syal discuss the unprecedented formal inquiry into lobbying by the former prime minister David Cameron on behalf of the collapsed finance company Greensill Capital

The Guardian’s banking correspondent, Kalyeena Makortoff, talks to Rachel Humphreys about Greensill, a company that specialised in supply-chain finance, and its relationship with the former prime minister David Cameron. Cameron joined Greensill as an adviser in 2018, two years after resigning as prime minister. It has emerged that last year he sent texts to Rishi Sunak, the chancellor, and “informally” phoned two other Treasury ministers, asking for Greensill Capital to get the largest possible allocation of government-backed loans under the Covid corporate financing facility, or CCFF. He also lobbied a No 10 aide, and in 2019 took Lex Greensill to a “private drink” with Matt Hancock, the health secretary.

Although Cameron hasn’t broken any rules, there have been questions raised over the fact that he appears to have used personal contacts to seek preferential treatment for a company in which he had a financial stake. On Monday No 10 said it was launching an independent investigation into Cameron’s lobbying, led by the corporate lawyer and government adviser Nigel Boardman. Rachel also hears from Guardian political correspondent Rajeev Syal about how Cameron has responded to the scandal and the wider role of lobbying in UK politics.

The Covid crisis: some people think it’s all over … it isn’t
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 09:41:43 GMT

A new reality check is coming unless the west replicates its ‘whatever-it-takes approach’ to help poorer countries cope

Denial. Panic. False dawn. Relief mingled with a decent dollop of euphoria. Britain’s response to Covid-19 has moved through distinct phases, and there are at least two more to come. Despite the success of the vaccine programme, a look around the world – to India, to Chile, to Brazil, to France and Germany – can lead to only one conclusion: this is not over yet.

The early stages of the crisis are now easy to document. The denial phase lasted from the first cases of Covid-19 being reported in China towards the end of 2019 until the middle of March 2020. Initially, perhaps, some scepticism was warranted because there had been talk of global pandemics in the past that had not lived up to their horror-show billing.

Daniel Kaluuya: the Camden Town kid at the top of the A-list
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 09:30:04 GMT

The star of Get Out grew up on a council estate. Now his intense portrayal of the black activist Fred Hampton is up for an Oscar

Daniel Kaluuya was just nine years old when he wrote a play put on by Hampstead Theatre. It was the story of two guys working in McDonald’s, based on the goofy Nickelodeon sitcom Kenan & Kel. He wrote it in response to a teacher who told him he needed an outlet for his energy because his brain was “too busy”.

Kaluuya was never sure if it was a compliment or a complaint, but that busy brain paid off: at 32, he has won best supporting actor at the Baftas, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice awards for his portrayal of Chairman Fred Hampton, the leader of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther party, who was assassinated in 1969. Next week, Kaluuya is up for the Oscar.

Jake Paul’s vapid boxing cosplay is a farce the sport could learn from | Bryan Armen Graham
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 10:15:00 GMT

The Youtube star has turned his professional boxing ‘career’ into an eyeball-grabbing, money-spinning spectacle. It may be a total farce, but all promoters should be taking notes

On Saturday night, the odious LA-based vlogger Jake Paul won his third professional boxing match with a first-round knockout of Ben Askren, a retired UFC fighter with no previous boxing experience. Paul, who boasts more than 20m subscribers on YouTube, sent his opponent crashing to the deck in the opening minutes of their scheduled eight-round cruiserweight fight with a looping right hand before referee Brian Stutts waved it off, perhaps a bit prematurely, after the 2008 US Olympian beat the count.

The big picture: colour, comedy and coincidence in London
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 06:00:03 GMT

Josh Edgoose spent hours in the rain to capture this amusing juxtaposition that shows the capital in a colourful light

Josh Edgoose’s new book, Brilliant Parade, contains five years of his London pictures. Any spare time from his day job in merchandising he has used to walk the city with his camera, enjoying the meditative purpose of looking. He thinks of it as a form of gambling, but with time, not money - “you might put in eight hours and 20 miles and come back with nothing” - but occasionally his three graces – colour, coincidence and quiet comedy – align.

This picture was taken in Regent Street on a day when it was closed for a vintage car parade. Edgoose took the opportunity to crouch at the kerb to get the angle for the enormous shoes on the billboard to reflect in the puddle and create the ironies of perspective. Then all he had to do was wait. After an hour or two in the drizzle, in which he fielded questions from curious passers-by, the woman walked into his frame with the “right kind of silvery blue tones” and he had his picture.

Dow transports set to eke out the longest weekly win streak in 32 years
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 19:06:36 GMT

The Dow Jones Transportation Average was rising 0.1% in afternoon trading Friday, and looks set to eke out the longest weekly gain since the late-1980s. The Dow transports has edged up 0.2% this week, which would mark the 11th-straight weekly gain. That would be the longest such streak since the 11-week stretch that ended Feb. 3, 1989. The index has run up 23.6% during its weekly win streak. In comparison, its sister index the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 1.2% this week and was headed toward a fourth-straight weekly gain, and ninth gain in the past 11 weeks, and has advanced 14.1% over the past 11 weeks. Both Dow sister indexes are set to close at weekly records, which is a bullish sign for the broader stock market. One of the six basic tenets of the century-old Dow Theory of market analysis, according to the CMT Association, is that no important bull or bear market signal could take place unless both averages gave the same signal. The idea is, the indexes have a symbiotic relationship, since transports take what the industrials make; if the companies in one of the indexes isn't performing, there's a good chance companies in the other won't either.

Shares of Mer Telemanagement Solutions Ltd. shot up 62.4% on very heavy volume in morning trading Friday, to pace all gainers on major U.S. exchanges, after the Israel-based telecom expense management company agreed to be acquired by sports betting company SharpLink Inc.

Affirm stock could head higher amid 'hypergrowth' of buy-now-pay-later offerings, analyst says in upgrade
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 12:27:01 GMT

Shares of Affirm Holdings Inc. are up 2% in premarket trading Friday after Seaport Global analyst Chris Brendler upgraded the stock to buy from neutral and set an $80 price target. He sees the stock as more attractive following a 34% selloff since he initiated coverage of the company 10 weeks back, whereas the S&P 500 has gained 7% in that time. "In our view, this underperformance comes despite increasing evidence that BNPL [buy-now-pay-later] is going to be huge in the US and based on a string of encouraging data points, we expect Affirm to materially exceed near-term expectations," Brendler wrote in a note to clients. The company offers financial options that let consumers pay in installments, and this trend seems to be reaching a "hyper growth adoption phase in the U.S.," Brendler continued, which could set Affirm up for success. "We also want to be in front of Affirm's Shopify partnership which has the potential to significantly accelerate Affirm's growth," he wrote. "Recent data suggests the wait is nearly over, and we expect management to provide an update on the upcoming earnings call."

Kansas City Southern profit, revenue miss expectations amid 'unique and challenging events'
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 12:16:27 GMT

Shares of Kansas City Southern tacked on 0.1% in premarket trading, after the rail road operator reported a first-quarter profit and revenue miss, with Chief Executive Patrick Ottensmeyer citing "several unique and challenging events," but he said he can "confidently confirm" the full-year outlook. Net income rose to $153.0 million, or $1.68 a share, from $151.7 million, or $1.58 a share, in the year-ago period. Excluding nonrecurring items, such as merger costs and foreign exchange losses, adjusted earnings per share came to $1.91, below the FactSet consensus of $1.95. Revenue fell 3.5% to $706.0 million, missing the FactSet consensus of $714.0 million. Among the "challenging" events mentioned by CEO Ottensmeyer were adverse weather resulting from the Polar Vortex and lingering network congestion. The company said in January that it expects 2021 revenue growth in the double-digit percentage range and EPS of $9.00 or better. The stock has rallied 26.7% year to date through Thursday, while the Dow Jones Transportation Average has advanced 19.4% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 11.2%.

Fri, 16 Apr 2021 11:55:53 GMT

Shares of Esports Technologies Inc. soared 36.5% in premarket trading Friday, adding to the 6-fold gain in the previous session, as investors continued to cheer the public debut of the Las Vegas-based online gambling company. The stock's first trade Thursday morning was at $21.00, or 250% above the $6.00 a share initial public offering price, and it continued to climb in volatile trading to close at $36.42. At that closing price, the Esports' market capitalization was about $460.7 million, compared with the market cap of $75.9 million at the IPO pricing. Based on premarket trading Friday, the company is on track to open with a market cap above $600 million. The frenzy for Esports shares occurred on a day that shares of Applovin Corp. , with a valuation of $28.6 billion at the IPO price, closed 18.5% below its IPO price, and TuSimple Holdings Inc. , valued at $8.5 billion at its IPO price, closed right at its IPO price. The Renaissance IPO ETF rose 1.3% on Thursday while the S&P 500 gained 1.1%.

Hertz gets sweetened bid from investors to help it exit bankruptcy: WSJ
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 11:51:28 GMT

Investment companies Knighthead Capital Management LLC and Certares Management LLC have sweetened their bid for bankrupt rental-car company Hertz Global Holdings Inc. and are now offering a deal that values the company at $6.2 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The investors said their new offer fully covers Hertz's funded debt and has the backing of Apollo Global Management Inc. and existing shareholders. Hertz endorsed a restructuring offer backed by Centerbridge Partners LP, Warburg Pincus LLC and Dundon Capital Partners LLC earlier in April to sponsor its exit from chapter 11. With their new proposal, Knighthead, Certares and their co-investors proposed taking control of Hertz with backing from Apollo, which has agreed to supply up to $2.5 billion in preferred equity financing, people familiar with the matter said. Hertz, which is aiming to exit bankruptcy by end-Juen, did not response to a request for comment.

Eli Lilly asks FDA to revoke EUA for COVID antibody treatment alone to speed transition to combination therapy
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 10:48:03 GMT

Eli Lilly and Co. said Friday it is seeking a revocation of the emergency use authorization granted by U.S. regulators for its bamlanivimab antibody treatment for COVID-19 alone in order to complete the transition to bamlanivimab and etesevimab together. "Lilly made this request due to the evolving variant landscape in the U.S. and the full availability of bamlanivimab and etesevimab together," the company said in a statement. The combination has proved to be more effective in neutralizing the COVID-19 variants that have been detected in the U.S. after first emerging in the U.K., South Africa and Brazil, and that are more infectious than the original virus. The combination is also better at treating the rapidly growing B.1.427/B.1.429 California strain that currently accounts for 50% of virus cases in California and over 10% of cases in other states. "In the U.S., bamlanivimab alone should no longer be administered. However, sites of care should not dispose of bamlanivimab supply; instead, they should order etesevimab to pair with it," said Lilly. Bamlanivimab was the first neutralizing monoclonal antibody to receive an EUA from the FDA as a treatment for mild to moderate COVID-19 and more than 400,000 patients have been given it. Lilly estimates that has prevented more than 20,000 hospitalizations and at least 10,000 deaths during the peak of pandemic cases. Lily expects that in collaboration with Amgen Inc. , it can manufacture sufficient supply of the two antibodies to meet global supply needs. Lilly shares were up 0.6% premarket, and have gained 10% in the year-to-date, matching the S&P 500's gains.

Coronavirus tally: Global cases of COVID-19 top 139 million and U.S. death toll is above 565,000
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 10:20:05 GMT

The global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness rose above 139 million on Friday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University, as the death toll climbed above 2.98 million. The U.S. leads the world in cases and deaths by wide margins, with 31.5 million cases, or about 23% of the global total, while the 565,289 death toll makes up about 19% of the global toll. The U.S. added at least 74,312 new cases and 909 new deaths on Thursday, according to a New York Times tracker. The U.S. has averaged 70,514 cases a day in the past week, up 8% from the average two weeks ago. Pfizer Inc. Chief Executive Albert Bourla said it is likely that people who receive Covid-19 vaccines will need booster shots within a year afterward, and then annual vaccinations, to maintain protection against the virus as it evolves, the Wall Street Journal reported. "The variants will play a key role. It is extremely important to suppress the pool of people that can be susceptible to the virus," Bourla said during a virtual event hosted by CVS Health Corp. that aired Thursday but was recorded April 1. Outside of the U.S., India has replaced Brazil as the country with the second highest number of cases at 14.3 million, and is fourth globally by deaths at 174,308. Brazil is third by cases at 13.7 million and second with a death toll of 365,444. Mexico is third by deaths at 211,213 and 14th highest by cases at 2.3 million. The U.K. has 4.4 million cases and 127,438 deaths, the highest in Europe and fifth highest in the world.

Fri, 16 Apr 2021 10:10:41 GMT

Biomea Fusion Inc. was set to go public Friday, as the California-based biopharmaceutical company focused on treatment of genetically defined cancers said its upsized initial public offering priced at $17 a share, at the high end of the expected range of between $15 and $17 a share.

Merck scraps two treatments for hospitalized COVID-19 patients, will focus on antiviral for non-hospitalized patients
Thu, 15 Apr 2021 19:48:22 GMT

Shares of Merck & Co. were up 0.1% in premarket trading on Thursday after the drug company said the oral antiviral COVID-19 treatment it is developing with Ridgeback Biotherapeutics did not help hospitalized patients in a mid-stage clinical trial. The companies now plan to test molnupiravir in non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients in a Phase 3 trial, with plans to file for emergency authorization in the second half of the year. They are also planning to see if the experimental therapy works for post-exposure prophylaxis. In a separate news release, Merck said it is discontinuing MK-7110 as a treatment for patients hospitalized with COVID-19, saying that the Food and Drug Administration's request for additional clinical information would push the launch into 2022. "Merck is now focusing its efforts on advancing molnupiravir, which, as an oral medicine for outpatient use, represents a promising potential new approach, and on accelerating production of Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine," Dr. Roy Baynes, chief medical officer for Merck Research Laboratories, said in the release. Merck's stock has gained 6.6% since the start of the year, while the broader S&P 500 is up 9.8%.

A consultation on including the occupations alongside nurses, firefighters and other public servants will be launched next month, if the Labour mayor wins a second term in the 6 May election. He led his nearest rival, the Conservative candidate, Shaun Bailey, by 22 points in a recent poll.

Dominic Cummings, the last thing the civil service needs is your advice | Nick Cohen
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 09:00:04 GMT

The Greensill scandal shows that public servants have been fatally compromised

The right is making Britain a normal country. I don’t mean that as a compliment, just as a statement of the dismal fact that in most countries it’s normal for the ruling clique to seek to limit the independence of the judiciary, control state television and fill the taxpayer-funded civil service with cranky ideologues, who will screech out its message, and drones who obey its orders.

Like authoritarian governments everywhere, the Johnson administration wants to rig the system. If you think “that kind of thing doesn’t happen here”, you are suffering from a sentimental version of British exceptionalism. If you say: “Come on, it’s hysterical to compare Johnson to authoritarian leaders”, I’m afraid you haven’t been paying attention.

Supermarket ‘bags for life’ must cost more to cut plastic use, urge campaigners

Green campaigners have urged higher prices for so-called bags for life after dramatic sales increases at some retailers since the ending of sales of single-use plastic carrier bags.

Marks & Spencer sold six times as many bags for life in 2019 as the year before, up from 13.4m to 82.6m, according to figures from Greenpeace and the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA). Iceland tripled its sales, to 107.3m from 34m the previous year.

In addition, the exhibition – Our Future Planet – will showcase prototypes of the gas-harvesting machines that can provide this carbon.

Caterpillar wars: time to pick sides in battle of Colin v Cuthbert
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 08:15:03 GMT

M&S and Aldi are at loggerheads over a cake. What’s at stake and what’s behind Britain’s love affair with the confection?

Colin the Caterpillar first darkened M&S’s shelves in the autumn of 1990, mere weeks before Margaret Thatcher stood down as prime minister. It’s too simple to put the timing down to coincidence. The symbolism was obvious. Here was an anthropomorphic chocolate sponge log ready to hold the nation’s hand through the coming decade. The lady wasn’t for turning; the new guy wasn’t for turning into a butterfly. In a confusing and fast-changing Britain, Colin has been a continuity figure.

The stubbornly larval national icon has been at the centre of a row this week. On Thursday it was reported that M&S had lodged a legal complaint against its discount rival, Aldi, whose “Cuthbert the Caterpillar”, it claims, besmirches Colin’s good name. It’s sad to see Colin dragged through the mud like this, but he has always been a quietly provocative figure.

David Cameron and the Greensill scandal is just the tip of the fatberg | Andrew Rawnsley
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 07:00:02 GMT
The ethics of government need a deep clean. That’s not likely to happen when Boris Johnson is prime minister

It is in danger of becoming received wisdom that the Greensill affair is an example of “Tory sleaze” similar to that which polluted the party’s reputation in the late 1990s. They do not compare. I had a ringside seat for the seedy death throes of John Major’s government. The scandals of those years mainly involved hitherto obscure politicians being caught with their peckers out or their snouts in the trough. The tabloids discovered various Conservative MPs in bed with people who were not their wives, often a career-busting transgression then, but now so accepted that Boris Johnson can be prime minister. There were also some notorious cases of Tory backbenchers taking undeclared payments – “cash for questions” – to promote business interests in parliament. This swelled the public’s feeling that the Conservatives had been corrupted by a long stretch in power and contributed to their landslide defeat at the 1997 election, but none of it threw into question the integrity of government itself.

The Greensill affair is several orders of magnitude more serious. A former prime minister is at the heart of this scandal that points to something rotten about how we are governed and is now embroiling not just politicians, but also the civil service.

Secret picnic spots, spring fashion, zesty cocktails, dining in the garden… Make the most of the open air with our fabulous guide to outside living

Now the lockdown is easing, it’s time to get outside and embrace alfresco living. Whether you’ve got a balcony or a back garden, there are many ways in which you can create an idyllic outdoor retreat to entertain friends and family. We asked six professional hosts and designers to share their expert advice.

Warm it up Temperature is a key element when trying to create the perfect alfresco space – especially on a chilly evening. “If it’s cold, my new addition is a hot-water bottle for everyone to place on their laps,” says chef and presenter Clodagh McKenna. “John Lewis has a range with textured, faux-fur covers (£25) that are so soft and lovely. They make a huge difference.” As for rain: “There are ways of keeping dry that don’t involve a mac,” according to supper-club host Alexandra Dudley. “A pretty parasol, such as the vintage-inspired fringed options from Business and Pleasure Co (from £132), work as well as rain covers or sun shades.” Think about cover that is equally useful in good and bad weather, such as pergolas, shade sails and gazebos. Woodside sells an all-weather pleasingly pointed gazebo for £119.99 that can be assembled in under a minute.

The Observer view on Joe Biden’s sanctions on Russia | Observer editorial

The US president has chosen to stand up to Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping with steady diplomacy

In one respect, the punitive measures imposed on Russia last week by the Biden administration are an attempt to clean up the mess left by Donald Trump. On issue after issue, such as Russian meddling in the 2016 and 2020 elections and cyber-attacks and hacks of US government agencies and businesses, the former president failed to take prompt retaliatory action or any action at all.

Trump cast doubt on Russia’s responsibility for these and other hostile acts, contradicting the findings of America’s intelligence agencies. He routinely declined to criticise Vladimir Putin, Russia’s president, for his support for Syria’s murderous regime, the 2018 Salisbury poisonings and the persecution of the opposition activist Alexei Navalny.

The race for rare earth minerals: can Australia fuel the electric vehicle revolution?

There are an estimated 1.4bn cars on the world’s roads today. Around 78m new cars are sold every year. To head off the worst effects of climate change, every single one will need to go electric eventually.

Whether it rolls off a production line in Fremont, California, or comes together in a vast megafactory in Qinghai, China, a colossal amount of human effort must go into building the components and obtaining their base minerals. In each car, for instance, there is roughly a kilogram of magnet providing the motion needed to fire engines and electrify windows.

Rambert: Rooms review – breathtaking quick-change skill
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 10:00:05 GMT

Live stream
Seventeen dancers play 100 characters in 1,000 costumes in Jo Strømgren’s teeming, beautifully filmed piece, but to what end?

Benoit Swan Pouffer took over the artistic leadership of Rambert at the end of 2018, and although his plans for the reinvention of Britain’s most significant contemporary company have been disrupted by Covid-19, the direction of travel is becoming clear.

In the works he has commissioned for livestreaming, filmed at the company’s base on London’s Southbank, Rambert’s talent are asked to become actors as much as dancers, to use their voices and their qualities of physical impersonation as much as to move.

What I learned in my year as a restaurant critic stuck at home

Won’t somebody think of the poor restaurant critics? Won’t anyone consider the plight of these hard-working, committed professionals, robbed this past year of their vital place in society? Week after week pre-pandemic, we pulled up to a thickly clothed table, ordered potentially nice things to eat at somebody else’s expense, and then returned to our desks to write sharply honed accounts of the great risks we had taken, carefully larded and barded with the most elegant of knob gags. Can’t at least a few of you take to your doorsteps to bang a pan? No? Oh.

I’ll level with you. Throughout the pandemic, I’ve attempted to check my privilege, really I have
