West Midlands primary school wins appeal against academy status
Fri, 23 Jul 2021 13:08:38 GMT

Judge calls decision not to revoke academy order ‘irrational’, as inspections halted during pandemic

A primary school in Sandwell, West Midlands, has become the first school to win a high court appeal against being forced to turn into an academy, arguing it could not demonstrate its improvement because Ofsted inspections were suspended because of Covid.

The governing body of Yew Tree primary school brought a judicial review against the education secretary, Gavin Williamson, following his refusal to revoke an academy order imposed on the school in 2019 after it was rated inadequate by Ofsted.

Omagh bombing could have been prevented, says high court judge
Fri, 23 Jul 2021 12:28:54 GMT

‘Real prospect’ 1998 attack by dissident republicans could have been thwarted, says Mr Justice Horner

Security forces had a “real prospect” of preventing the 1998 Omagh bombing – the deadliest atrocity of the Northern Ireland Troubles – a Belfast high court has ruled.

Mr Justice Horner recommended on Friday that the British and Irish governments each undertake human rights compliant investigations into the bombing, which killed 29 people, including a woman pregnant with twins, and injured 220 people.

The Pegasus Project part 3: cartels, corruption and cyber-weapons
Wed, 21 Jul 2021 02:00:43 GMT

In the latest part of our mini-series, Michael Safi hears from Nina Lakhani on how 15,000 Mexicans including journalists and politicians appeared on a list of possible targets for surveillance

In March 2017, a 38-year-old freelance reporter named Cecilio Pineda Birto was shot dead in Altamirano, a town in the southern Mexican region of Tierra Caliente – a battleground for organised crime factions. His phone vanished from the crime scene. A few weeks earlier, a number connected to that phone had been selected as a possible surveillance target by a client of the spyware company NSO group.

The Guardian’s Nina Lakhani tells Michael Safi that this story is illustrative of the dangers faced by journalists in Mexico. The mobile numbers of 15,000 Mexicans including politicians, judges, activists and teachers appear in the data leak of possible surveillance targets. Included in that are at least 50 people linked to Mexico’s president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador – his wife, children, aides and doctor. Appearing on the leaked list does not mean that a number was attacked, or that an infection was attempted and NSO insists the database has “no relevance” to the company.

Alabama governor joins growing number of Republicans urging Americans to get vaccinated – live
Fri, 23 Jul 2021 14:21:22 GMT
  • Covid cases likely to accelerate through summer, new forecasts say
  • CDC director warns Americans in ‘another pivotal moment’ in pandemic

Republican lawmakers are under increasing pressure to tell their constituents Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective amid spread of the new, more contagious Delta variant.

Covid-19 vaccines are highly effective against the Delta variant, and remain the single most tool available to prevent infection with the highly contagious disease.

In recent news conferences and statements, some prominent Republicans have been imploring their constituents to lay lingering doubts aside. In Washington, the so-called Doctors Caucus gathered at the Capitol for an event to combat vaccine hesitancy. And in Florida, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis this week pointed to data showing the vast majority of hospitalized Covid-19 patients hadn’t received shots.

“These vaccines are saving lives,” said DeSantis, who recently began selling campaign merchandise mocking masks and medical experts.

Republican Governor Kay Ivey has joined a growing chorus of Republicans urging people to get vaccinated. According to local TV station WKRG, she told a press conference Thursday:

The new cases of Covid are because of unvaccinated folks. Almost 100% of the new hospitalizations are with unvaccinated folks. And the deaths are certainly occurring with the unvaccinated folks. These folks are choosing a horrible lifestyle of self-inflicted pain,” said Gov. Ivey.

When asked how the state can get more shots into the arms of residents, Ivey did not hold back her displeasure with the lack of success previous plans have had.

Wolf Alice review – delirious crowd drink in a night of sublime bedlam
Fri, 23 Jul 2021 12:20:40 GMT

O2 Academy, Bournemouth
The three-time Mercury prize nominees seemed stunned by the deafening reception at their first non-socially distanced show in two years

From the second you walk into Bournemouth’s O2 Academy, it’s clear that gigs are not as they once were. An hour before Wolf Alice are due to take the stage for their first full, non-socially distanced live show in nearly two years, the atmosphere already feels more like an evening’s sweaty climax. People are cheering everything, including the roadie who comes on stage to say “one-two-one-two” into the microphones and the music playing through the PA: each song is greeted by a bellow of enthusiasm and a mass singalong.

Under the circumstances, you get the feeling that Wolf Alice could come on stage and read out Stalin’s speech to the 1939 Soviet Communist party congress – in the original Russian – and still get a reaction like the Beatles got at Shea Stadium. Instead, they play a set heavy on songs from their new album: over half of Blue Weekend – nominated, like every album Wolf Alice have thus far released, for the Mercury prize – gets an airing.
