On the one hand, their unscrupulous campaigning skills helped deliver the outcome of the 2016 referendum on the EU and the scale of Boris Johnson's victory in the general election in 2019. On the other, their astonishing capacity to generate destructive mayhem left much debris at the heart of government.

How traffic-reduction schemesA slew of initiatives from local councils have meant drivers being moved off residential streets and on to busier main roads. But while many residents support the schemes, the measures have provoked... protests As England entered lockdown in the spring, there was a huge switch away from public transport and into private cars. The government, fearing gridlock and spikes in pollution, acted quickly to allocate powers and funding to local councils for implementing traffic restrictions. The move has resulted in 200 schemes being drawn up, the majority of which are in London where traffic is often most dense. But they have not been universally welcomed, with some residents reacting with fury. The Guardian's Peter Walker tells Rachel Humphreys that these kinds of measures are not new and that while...

Sure enough, Moderna's promising trial results merely added to the generally bullish mood in markets without generating the same sense of wild relief, and 5% rise in the FTSE 100 index, that Pfizer and BioNTech achieved a week ago. But, actually, the key difference with Moderna's version looks significant. It's the fact the company says its vaccine can be transported and stored for up to six months at -20C and will then remain stable for 30 days at fridge temperatures. By contrast, Pfizer and BioNTech spoke about -75C in storage and then only five days of...

Britain can be blamed on joblessness, insufficient hours of work, and low pay. The pandemic has emphasised that the penury that too many suffer in this country is nothing to do with the shortcomings of workers. It is do with a shortage of work. That is why the chancellor, Rishi Sunak, in next week's mini-budget, should scrap plans to abolish, in April 2020, the £20 a week extra benefit payments going to 6m low-income households. A report by the Resolution Foundation reveals that the longer the pandemic has gone on, the harder the poorest have been hit. People who did nothing but stoically bear...

It appears to be part of a last-minute... dash to auction off the rights before President-elect Joe Biden, who would likely try to block the controversial drilling authorization, takes office in January, The Washington Post reports. Ultimately, many firms may choose not to bid at all, considering the lack of infrastructure in the region and the potential public backlash that would come with it, the Post notes, so the effort may prove futile regardless of whether the Trump administration beats the de facto deadline. But even if sales are completed, it often takes several weeks for the Bureau of Land Management to scan the highest bids...

Misfits review - there's no place like Essex

The Guardian - 16 Nov 2020 17:52
Misfits review - there's noAvailable onlineThe Queen's theatre in Hornchurch seeks to set the record straight on the county's much maligned image with four monologues that fizz When Mike Leigh situated his social satire... Abigail's Party in "theoretical Romford", pejorative terms like "chav" and "Essex girl" had yet to be invented although the county, even then, was saddled with certain reductive stereotypes. Misfits sets out to set the record straight on Essex's much maligned image by offering up its own dramatic corrective. Streamed online by Queen's Theatre Hornchurch, it promises a celebration of the "Essex experience" in all its multiplicity, although, confusingly, its title calls to question whether its four central characters are comfortable in their Essex identities or feel like "misfits" within its confines.

We're all aware of the impossible... situation that film currently finds itself in. Screens started shutting in the summer. This is because the big new movies have all been postponed. This is because movie studios are nervous about losses. And this is because Tenet, the great bellwether of cinema in 2020, underperformed theatrically. But perhaps an alternate dimension exists where cinema is still thriving. The Eternals is breaking box-office records. No Time to Die is still showing to packed houses. Pre-sales for Dune are through the roof. And it's all because people flocked to Tenet in their droves. What separates that dimension...

How we made: Take My BreathGiorgio Moroder: 'The lyrics were written by a guy who came to fix my Ferrari. It won me my third Oscar' Before I was in Berlin I auditioned for the part of Princes Leia in Star Wars. I was 15 but... looked 12. Harrison Ford was over 30 but looked 19 or 20. We sat in deckchairs to say our lines. George Lucas, bless him, sent me a letter thanking me and saying: "We chose Carrie Fisher, but we'd like to help you." He introduced me to Steven Spielberg and all these guys. I was offered the part of Lucy Ewing in Dallas, but the seven-year contract scared me because I really wanted to do music. My mother told me to go with my heart, but my agent was so annoyed with me for turning down Dallas that he dropped me. A year later, I met John Crawford [bass/vocals] and joined Berlin.

Ray Clemence obituary

The Guardian - 16 Nov 2020 15:28
Ray Clemence obituaryAthletic, elegant and decisive goalkeeper for England, Liverpool and Spurs It says much about the outstanding ability of Ray Clemence, who has died aged 72 after suffering from prostate cancer, that... he was able to amass 61 caps for England during an era in which he was vying for his place against Gordon Banks and Peter Shilton, the two best England goalkeepers of all time. Succeeding Banks between the posts in 1972, Clemence battled with Shilton for the keeper's jersey for much of the 1970s until his slightly younger rival achieved ascendancy. However, while Clemence's years with England brought much acclaim, it was his career in the domestic game that delivered the glory. As the last line of defence in the great Liverpool sides of the 70s he won three European Cups, five First Division...

New ground: 10 unsuccessful modern stadium moves

The Guardian - 16 Nov 2020 15:20
New ground: 10 unsuccessfulFollowing our look at the best moves to new all-seater grounds, here are 10 that did not exactly work out as planned By Niall McVeigh for The Set Pieces In part one, we looked at 10 successful stadium... moves in the new-build era. Now it's time to dig deeper into 10 relocations that did not go so smoothly. Not all of these moves were all-out disasters, but each team hit difficulties along the way. Some lost their sense of identity, others suffered financially. For others, the issue was not the new stadium but what happened on the pitch.

Fauci: Moderna's 'outstanding'Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, is hailing new data on Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine candidate as "striking" and "quite impressive." Moderna revealed on Monday that... preliminary phase-three data on its coronavirus vaccine suggested that it's 94.5 percent effective. This is a far better efficacy rate than experts had been anticipating in a vaccine against COVID-19, and it comes after Pfizer recently said its COVID-19 vaccine candidate also appears to be more than 90 percent effective. "These are obviously very exciting results," Fauci told CNN on Monday. "It's just as good as it gets -- 94.5 percent is truly outstanding." Fauci, who previously said he would "settle" for a COVID-19 vaccine that's around 70 percent effective, also told NBC's Today the data is "quite...

Among the trial's 30,000 participants, 90 COVID-19 cases were found among those getting placebo shots, and only five cases occurred among those who got the two-dose vaccine. Moderna also said doses of its vaccine, once thawed, could last at refrigerated temperatures for a longer-than-expected 30 days. The vaccine's preliminary 94.5 percent efficacy is a "really important milestone," Moderna president Dr. Stephen Hoge told The Associated Press. But more importantly, the fact that both it and Pfizer's vaccine had similar results "should...

It's the 'vaccine hesitant',To make vaccination work, we must reach out to the naturally cautious - a bigger proportion than you might assume Coronavirus - latest updates See all our coronavirus coverage Lydia Guthrie is not... very daring by nature. A psychotherapist and mother of two from Oxford, she couldn't be persuaded into bungee jumping for all the money in the world, and even shudders at skiing. "I'm very risk averse and a bit of a coward. I can't even watch horror films." Yet nonetheless, earlier this year she volunteered to be injected with an experimental Covid-19 vaccine as part of a clinical trial in the city, a partnership between the university, the NHS and drug company AstraZeneca. Like all the guinea pigs, she doesn't yet know if she got the real thing or the meningitis vaccine used as a dummy. She had...

TV style icons of 2020:From sequins and ruched lamé to neoprene, kilts to drop-crotch trousers, we can all learn from mother and son fashionistas Moira and David, clinging to their glory days through more-is-more outfits... You might think Schitt's Creek is just a show about a wealthy family who lose everything and have to move to a motel they refer to as a "vomit soaked dump", but I'm here to tell you that it is also a show about fashion. Not since Absolutely Fabulous has a programme used clothing with such humour and precision, deploying a drop-crotch trouser or a dramatic epaulette with the meticulous timing of an exquisitely crafted punchline. The Rose family's luxurious wardrobes are the last vestiges of their former lives, their outfits a continual source of hilarity for their checked-shirt-clad small-town...

Iraq: No Justice for Enforced Disappearances

Human Rights Watch - 16 Nov 2020 14:00
(Beirut) - Iraqi authorities should fulfill a commitment to locate victims of enforced disappearance and ensure that those responsible are held accountable, Human Rights Watch said today. Since taking... office in May 2020, Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi announced that his government was creating a new mechanism to locate victims of enforced disappearances, but authorities appear to have done little follow-through. Iraqi authorities did not respond to a November 5 letter from Human Rights Watch requesting information about eight disappearances that occurred between December 2019 and October 2020. "Creating a do-nothing mechanism, as Iraqi governments have done for years, is simply not enough to address longtime problems like enforced disappearances," said Belkis Wille, senior crisis and...

Awaiting Justice for Police Killings in DR Congo

Human Rights Watch - 16 Nov 2020 13:45
Click to expand Image Congolese police taking part in the first Operation Likofi in Kinshasa, December 2, 2013. © 2013 Private At 3 a.m. on December 18, 2013, about 20 police officers stormed the... home of 24-year-old Gauthier (a pseudonym) and forced him into their pickup truck. This was the last time his mother saw him. Gauthier was among dozens of young men and boys suspected to be "kuluna," or gang members, who fell victim to a months-long, brutal police campaign in the Democratic Republic of Congo's capital, Kinshasa. "No one has ever told me where my son is," Gauthier's mother told Human Rights Watch by phone last week. "It hurts so much when my grandson, who is now 10-years-old, asks me where his father is." During the operation, which started on November 15, 2013, police killed at...

UK should revisit 5G ban nowExclusive: vice-president Victor Zhang says north-south divide in England would be exacerbated by missing out on 5G The UK should revisit its decision to ban the Chinese telecoms equipment maker... Huawei from its 5G network in the post-Trump era and recognise that it will worsen England's north-south divide, the vice-president of Huawei has told the Guardian. Victor Zhang's intervention comes as Boris Johnson prepares on Monday to meet the Northern Research Group, the lobby group of Conservative MPs determined to turn the prime minister's levelling up agenda into a reality. Zhang urged the UK to stay true to its roots as the birthplace of the first Industrial Revolution, saying the government could not afford to fall behind in the 5G revolution.

Vegetarians rejoice: 10 nutIf you're not eating meat, big feasts such as Christmas can be very hit and miss. But help is at hand If you don't eat meat, then Christmas (or Thanksgiving, or even just a Sunday lunch) can be... upsettingly hit and miss. The closest thing to a traditional meal you will encounter is an old-fashioned nut roast, and God knows what a minefield those can be. Pick a bad recipe and you'll end up with something inedibly dry, or unattractively crumbly, or just plain dense and tasteless. Nevertheless, help is at hand. This is going to be the strangest Christmas in living memory, so the least you deserve is a palatable lunch. Here are a few of the best options.

We're being told Biden won'tIf Joe Biden is going to accomplish anything, we need to start thinking differently about power and our political system One thing we have learned from this election is just how crazy our democratic... system is. Many crucial victories came down to slim margins in swing states and the idiosyncrasies of the electoral college. Moving forward, progressives need to rally around serious democracy reform. Every issue we care about, from heathcare to climate justice, flows from that. Without a major intervention - and even with radical candidates winning office here and there - our political system is becoming less and less representative and responsive.
