There is still no end in sight to the infighting tearing Labour apart | Sienna Rodgers
The NEC walkout over the election of a new chair revealed that Keir Starmer has much to do to unite the party behind him• Sienna Rodgers is editor of LabourListThe latest episode in Labour’s internal drama this week saw the first meeting of its newly elected ruling body kick off with a walkout, or perhaps more accurately described as a click out, given that the protest took place during a Covid-appropriate video conference call.Two of the most vocal Labour left activists within the party, former MP Laura Pidcock and Unite’s Howard Beckett, made points of order directly criticising Keir Starmer. Then 13 members of the national executive committee (NEC), including several trade unionists and a handful of representatives elected by members, left the digital gathering. What had sparked their fury was the leadership’s decision to disrupt the existing procedure for deciding the chair of the committee. Continue reading...

Jungleland review – flimsy boxing drama pulls its punches
Jack O’Connell and Charlie Hunnam play brothers whose plans to escape poverty are threatened by a ruthless loan sharkStanley (Charlie Hunnam) and Lion (Jack O’Connell) are brothers, barely getting by on the wrong side of town. Lion has some talent as a boxer and Stan is his big-talking, relentlessly optimistic manager – so the plan is to drag themselves out of poverty in the time-honoured fashion, using only their fists and aggression. Plans go awry when Stan, in debt to a local loan shark (Jonathan Majors), is charged with delivering some mysterious human cargo (Jessica Barden) to the other side of the country, en route to a big-money tournament in San Francisco.Underground-fight movies tap directly into a macho fantasy of self-reliance, but the recent economic downturn has given these narratives a desperate new relevance. However, this depiction of hardscrabble American life seems derived not so much from direct experience or empathetic observation, as from a handful of half-listened-to Bruce Springsteen albums. From the kitschy motel decor to the actors’ straggly beards, it all just feels like a bit of a put-on. Amid all this apparent deprivation, the dandified Majors looks as if he came direct from a GQ fashion shoot. Continue reading...

David Atherton's recipe for sweet potato sirenki
For something warm to dip into your soup that’s easy to prep while the pan’s on the hob, try these delicious Bulgarian cheese scone alternatives Soups can be slurped simply on their own, but I love having something to dunk. A loaf of fresh bread is perfect, but when you’re rustling up a quick soup, you want a quick alternative. The Bulgarian word sirenki basically translates to “something with cheese” and is very similar to a cheese scone. You can whip up a batch quickly once your soup is simmering and you’ll have yourself a perfect soup accompaniment. Sirene is a white brined cheese very popular in Bulgaria. It is often stocked in eastern European or Turkish food stores, but it is similar to Greek feta cheese, which can be used as an alternative. Bulgarian yoghurt is world renowned and for this recipe you need a live yogurt to ensure you have the lactic acid bacteria to provide an acidic mix for the bicarb to boost.Makes 10100g sweet potato100g live natural yoghurt300g plain flour2 tsp bicarbonate of soda½ tsp fine salt1 tsp mustard powder200g sirene (or feta) cheesePaprika to dust before baking Continue reading...
