Lobbying act targeted powerful shadowy groups, not charities | Letter
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 16:50:07 GMT

Former Liberal Democrat minister Tom Brake responds to an article by Polly Toynbee on the 2014 act

In response to Polly Toynbee’s article (Cameron passed a lobbying act, but it was never meant to curb corruption, 15 April), as a Liberal Democrat minister in coalition, I was involved in drawing up the Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014. At no point did I, or any of my colleagues, ever discuss introducing measures designed to target the National Union of Students because we “lived in terror” of it.

What we did discuss was the risk of groups similar to the US National Rifle Association emerging as major players in UK politics. These organisations support a preferred candidate by viciously targeting their main opponent, but because they act “independently”, their spending does not count against their favoured candidate’s election spending limit.

The Guardian view on the need for news: local facts are sacred too | Editorial
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 17:50:52 GMT

Recent years have been punishing for regional and national news organisations. Both are essential if democracy is to thrive

Jeremy Corbyn and Sir Keir Starmer both paid tribute to Eric Gordon, the founder of the Camden New Journal, who died earlier this month, aged 89. Their interest was natural enough, as MPs in neighbouring boroughs – Camden and Islington – where the CNJ’s owner, New Journal Enterprises, publishes newspapers (its third title is in Westminster). But the story of this independently owned local news organisation has a significance that stretches beyond the capital.

Launched after a journalists’ strike, in 1982, Gordon’s papers are proof that local outlets that put community before profit can still survive and even thrive – albeit on a tight budget. With important local elections coming up, this lesson has rarely been more important.

Five months before national elections, a Green party that once styled itself as the rebel of German politics is finding itself in an unusually respectable position.

The return of Tory sleaze: a scandal set to haunt Boris Johnson
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 07:00:01 GMT

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.

Fight to vote: why US democracy is at a tipping point – video
Wed, 14 Apr 2021 08:00:34 GMT

The new Georgia voting rights law makes it harder to vote, especially for communities that tend to vote for Democrats – and that's what Republicans want. But it's not just Georgia: these restrictive voting laws are being considered in nearly every state in America, from Arizona to Texas to Florida.

These efforts come on the heels of the 2020 presidential election, which Republicans lost by slim margins in several states. Many Republicans claimed they lost because of voter fraud – because people who were ineligible to vote found a way to skirt the rules and cast ballots. Election officials around the nation said there was no widespread fraud, but Republicans are using this argument to push for a wide array of laws that will skew election in their favor.

If enacted, Americans will have to ask a hard question: is the US still a democracy?

Alvin Chang and Sam Levine explain this Republican effort to suppress voting rights as part of the Guardian's Fight to Vote series

UK Covid news: Boris Johnson cancels trip to India because of Covid crisis there
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:51:42 GMT

Latest updates: PM’s forthcoming trip to India cancelled as country’s total cases reach 15m

Boris Johnson has cancelled his planned trip to India. No 10 has just released this joint statement from the British and Indian governments.

In the light of the current coronavirus situation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not be able to travel to India next week. Instead, Prime Ministers Modi and Johnson will speak later this month to agree and launch their ambitious plans for the future partnership between the UK and India. They will remain in regular contact beyond this, and look forward to meeting in person later this year.

As my colleague Nicola Davis reported last week, only 77 cases of the Indian variant of coronavirus, B1617, have been found in the UK so far. “It is designated a ‘variant under investigation’ but is worrying researchers as it contains two mutations that it is thought may help the virus to evade the body’s immune responses,” Nicola explained.

This morning Prof Danny Altmann, professor of immunology at Imperial College London, said he expected B1617 to be upgraded to a “variant of concern” quite soon. That would lead to India being placed on the “red list” for travel, he said (which would probably force Boris Johnson to cancel his trip due to start this weekend). Altmann told Good Morning Britain:

At the moment, this particular variant (from India) is called a variant under investigation, not a variant of concern because it hasn’t been escalated to that level yet.

My assumption from everything I’ve seen is that it will become a variant of concern. When it becomes a variant of concern, I’d be quite surprised if India wasn’t on the red list.

This variant has a couple of mutations that are among those that we think are important that should be watched carefully, but they’re actually probably not at the very kind of top tier of mutations, for example in the B117 - or Kent variant - or the South African variant, that generate the most concern.

And in terms of spread, clearly this variant has increased in frequency in India around the same time as their very large and tragic recent wave.

Compulsory worship of national symbols is the sure sign of a culture in decline | Nesrine Malik
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 05:00:23 GMT

Those who think our flags and statues must be protected from blasphemers have taken a step down a sinister road

Though we often hear that depictions of the prophet Muhammad are forbidden in Islam, artworks bearing his image can be found in museums in Europe and the United States. He is on a bronze medallion in the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam, holding a book. He is in a Persian miniature in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, ascending to the heavens on a horse. And he is in many carefully curated private collections of Islamic art, appearing from time to time in the catalogues of prestigious auction houses when these artworks change hands.

The prohibition of images of the prophet, no matter how anodyne, is widely accepted today – but, as these examples show, it is a distinctly modern edict. The religious justification for the ban is far less clear than its proponents believe: there is no such instruction in the Qur’an. There is, of course, a pre-Islamic aversion to idol worship shared by all the monotheistic religions, and over the centuries this aversion gradually wore away depictions of Muhammad in Islamic art. But this was only a prelude to the modern charge of blasphemy – which arrived only in the 20th century, after the Muslim world had fractured into nation-states.

Let’s not go back to the denial and delusion of the Thatcher years | John Harris

Nostalgia, royal navel-gazing and angst: modern Britain is in danger of repeating the mistakes of 40 years ago

Midway through last week, I spent a couple of hours in Redditch, 15 or so miles south of Birmingham. My daughter plays the drums, and she wanted to see the new statue of the late John Bonham, who grew up in Redditch, joined the hugely successful hard rock group Led Zeppelin, and died a tragic death in 1980. We found the impressive memorial in the local market square – an obviously popular meeting place, sullied by a conspicuous line of vacant shops.

Redditch has had a rough time of late. Even now, its Covid infection rate is among the highest in the country. Like so many places, the town has said goodbye to its branch of Marks & Spencer, and is about to lose its Debenhams department store too. In the spring sunshine, it felt pinched and forlorn. This was thrown into sharper relief by what we then listened to on the car radio: endless chatter about the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, the supposed magic and wonder of the royal family, and the arrangements for his funeral.

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.

Britain plans to force those working for foreign governments to sign a central register in an attempt to counter hostile spy activity, the Home Office has confirmed.

Boris Johnson, according to the Times, hopes to formally announce the proposal in the Queen’s speech next month, making it a criminal offence not to declare work in the UK on behalf of a foreign government.

Labour will never govern unless it can appeal again to working class – report
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 06:00:24 GMT

Exclusive: publication by Labour MPs in once safe seats warns party’s problems predate Corbyn’s leadership and Brexit

Labour will never get back into government unless it can reinvent itself to appeal again to working-class voters, a major examination of the party’s future has warned, saying the problems go far beyond Brexit or Jeremy Corbyn’s time as leader.

The conclusion comes in a collection of pieces written by Labour MPs representing once safe seats which are now at risk, among them several shadow ministers, including John Healey, the shadow defence minister, who edited the report.

‘It’s war’: what the papers say about the European Super League
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 04:35:16 GMT

Newspapers in the UK trotted out war metaphors after 12 of the continent’s top football clubs revealed controversial plans

The rebels have made their move, and Gary Neville had barely finished his furious “imposters” tirade before the continent’s newspapers started trotting out the war metaphors.

“Football at war” was the popular choice for editors sending Monday’s print editions to press after 12 football clubs across England, Spain and Italy announced the formation of the European Super League on Sunday night.

Did ‘eat out to help out’ cost lives? – podcast
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 02:00:19 GMT

Last August, Bob Pape and his family went on a city break to Birmingham, making the most of the chancellor Rishi Sunak’s ‘eat out to help out’ scheme. The day after he arrived home, his Covid symptoms began. Guardian writer Sirin Kale looks at the links between the scheme and the rise in Covid numbers

Like millions of people, Bob Pape and his family took advantage of the government’s “eat out to help out” scheme last August. They took a mini-break to Birmingham and ate at a handful of restaurants. Upon his return, Pape fell ill, was put on a ventilator, and died a few weeks later.

As part of her Lost to the Virus series, the Guardian writer Sirin Kale wrote about Pape and his family, and reports here on the story of their ill-fated holiday. She talks to Rachel Humphreys about the links between EOTHO and rises in Covid cases, telling her about her conversation with the University of Warwick economist Thiemo Fetzer. He has published a paper analysing the impact of EOTHO on Covid infections. Fetzer found that areas with higher take-up of the scheme experienced an increase in Covid infection rates, with between 8% and 17% of new Covid infection clusters attributable to EOTHO.

Facebook encryption plans will hit fight against child abuse, warns Patel

Major tech firms currently use a range of technologies to identify child abuse images and detect grooming and sexual abuse in private messages.

Leaving Afghanistan: the west has lessons to learn | Letters
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 16:51:56 GMT

As troops prepare to withdraw from the war-torn country, readers reflect on western nations’ involvement and legacy

Your editorial (15 April) asserts that the Taliban were quick to take over when the Russians left. That is simply not true; it actually took seven years, from the end of Soviet combat operations in 1989 to the capture of Kabul by the Taliban in 1996. The crucial event was the withdrawal of Russian subsidies to the Najibullah regime in 1992.

It took a further two years for that regime to collapse, and two years more of chaos and intra-mujahideen fighting to create the void into which the Taliban stepped. This all matters because there was nothing inevitable about the Taliban’s takeover in 1996 and neither is there now.

The Queen alone: how Prince Philip’s death will change the monarchy
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 14:30:27 GMT

With the poignant sight of the widowed Queen, the world glimpsed not just the era that is ending, but the one that is inevitably on its way

You could barely see her, but you could glimpse the future. Maybe it was the sepulchral gloom of the dark wooden stalls of St George’s chapel, or perhaps it was the restraint of a TV director keeping their distance, respecting the privacy of the moment, but the Queen was hardly visible in the live coverage of her late husband’s funeral on Saturday. Masked and in an unlit corner, the monarch was all but unseen.

When the camera did catch her, it made for a poignant sight: the widow alone, an image that “broke hearts around the world,” in the words of the Washington Post, but one that will resonate in the UK especially. Even the sternest republican has long admitted that an extraordinary bond exists between Elizabeth and the people who have been her subjects for nearly seven decades. Now, if anything, that bond will be strengthened.

Did we miss it? No, of the “clear plan” an incoming Boris Johnson promised within 12 months, thus differentiating his resolve from the way social care funding had been “shirked by governments for about 30 years”, there is still no sign. Nor of promised cross-party talks.

Although to be fair, Matt Hancock, the health secretary, did ask every single MP and peer for any social care hints or hacks they might have – excluding the thrifty tip, inexplicably omitted from Andrew Dilnot’s 2011 report, that where possible, middle-aged men restrict their relationships to future care-givers at least a decade younger than themselves.

London, Burning by Anthony Quinn review – portrait of a divided country
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:00:26 GMT

Four strangers are united by the tensions of late 70s Britain in the latest of Quinn’s gratifying London novels

Set during the dog days of the Callaghan Labour government, Anthony Quinn’s latest period novel extends his richly pleasurable and loosely connected series portraying London down the decades. Since 2011, he has fused romance, mystery and social realism to produce a kind of epic Londoniad, tackling the city’s Victorian slums (The Streets), the first world war (Half of the Human Race), the 30s (Curtain Call), the blitz (Our Friends in Berlin), the 50s and 60s (Freya and Eureka), and now the late 70s, a time of strikes, IRA violence and the imminent election of Margaret Thatcher.

It’s David Peace territory, but Quinn is a steadier, suaver writer, relying on the old-school charms of rounded characters and a clockwork plot. Involving police corruption and showbiz hanky-panky, London, Burning brings together four strangers: Hannah, a go-getting reporter; Vicky, a newly promoted detective; Callum, an English lecturer from County Down; and Freddie, a married theatre director sleeping with a television star angling for the lead role in his new show. At the centre of it all is Thatcher’s shadow home secretary, Anthony Middleton, an ex-spy and former POW vowing to crush the unions and the IRA alike. A fictional version of Airey Neave, he also dies in a car bomb, but Quinn’s aim isn’t to recreate one of the IRA’s most notorious murders so much as use it as a catalyst for events that pull together his central quartet. A kneejerk arrest fuelled by anti-Irish bigotry is only the start, as the killing inspires a network of crooked cops running a drugs racket.

As well as taking a trip down memory lane, Quinn wants to explore how Labour voters were blindsided by Thatcher’s rise

Nobody is perfect on their first attempt at a task, but Thomas says the only way to improve is to try and keep trying. Though becoming an astronaut seemed a distant dream when he was younger, by continuing to challenge himself and learn along the way he developed the skills he needed to put himself forward and become one of a small group who have travelled to space.

Whatever your passion, his advice is universal: try your best, and if you don’t succeed it doesn’t matter. What does matter is perseverance.

Dow ends at 34,000 for first time; S&P 500 notches record as jobless claims hit pandemic low, retail sales surge
Thu, 15 Apr 2021 20:05:26 GMT

The S&P 500 and Dow clinched fresh records Thursday, after economic reports continued to affirm a healthy recovery from the pandemic, highlighted by retail sales surging in March on the back of fiscal stimulus checks to consumers and jobless benefit claims falling to a fresh low for the COVID period. 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.

Privately held Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, was selected by NASA on Friday to move forward in developing a human landing system to carry the next two U.S. astronauts to the moon "and pave the way for sustainable lunar exploration." That's under NASA's Artemis program, which aims to return humans on the moon, collaborating with commercial and international partners, and eventually send astronauts to Mars. Elon Musk is chief executive on SpaceX as well as Silicon Valley electric-car maker Tesla Inc. SpaceX in February announced plans to send four space tourists to orbit later this year on a mission to raise awareness for a children's hospital. Last month, the company's prototype Mars rocket Starship broke apart while attempting to land.

Mer Telemanagement stock rockets on heavy volume after merger with sports betting company
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 14:06:40 GMT

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. Trading volume spiked to 46.2 million shares, compared with the full-day average over the past 30 days of about 343,900 shares, to make the stock the second-most active on major U.S. exchanges. The stock's rally, which puts it on track for the highest close since August 2015, has pushed Mer's market valuation up to $24.1 million. Following the closing of the merger, SharpLink shareholders will own 86% of the combined company. "Following the merger, our company will be on the leading edge of a potentially massive sports betting market in the U.S. and globally," said Mer Chief Executive Roy Hess. "By providing proprietary advanced conversion and engagement solutions for the sports betting industry, we expect SharpLink's services will be needed by many companies looking to capitalize on this opportunity." Mer's stock has tripled (up 200.7%) year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 11.2%.

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%.

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.

ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has started training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, USA. Set to launch for her second mission in spring 2022, Samantha is already getting reacquainted with International Space Station systems in a series of refresher courses.

Samantha was last on the International Space Station in 2014 for her Futura mission. She spent 200 days in space, conducting European and international scientific experiments and Space Station operations.

In the coming months, her schedule will intensify as she trains for the specific experiments and tasks she will perform in space during her second mission.

As a collaborative, international effort between the United States, Europe, Canada, Russia and Japan, Space Station training takes place across the globe. Samantha will be training between Johnson Space Center in the USA, the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Star City, Russia and the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany.

Samantha and her fellow Class of 2009 astronauts will soon welcome new colleagues. For the first time in over a decade, the European Space Agency is seeking new astronauts and applications are open from 31 March to 28 May 2021. A six-stage selection process will start thereafter. This is expected to be completed in October 2022.
