You want to go on holiday abroad and pay later ... but be aware of the risks
Demand is pushing up prices, and many are seeking a loan to cover costs. It’s never been easier, but keep your eyes openWe are now free to go on holiday, but it will cost us. As the government unveiled the list of countries British holidaymakers can go to without having to quarantine on their return, demand jumped. This, combined with limited flights, has led to a sharp increase in prices for trips to “green list” countries such as Portugal.At the same time, the number of people looking to borrow to finance their holiday has increased, suggesting they are willing to spread the cost in order to get away.

Cameron, Alexander, Osborne, Clegg: how the austerity ‘quad’ sold their souls | Will Hutton
The 2010 coalition was a disaster. Its leaders have done little to restore their reputationIt was excruciating. To watch a former British prime minister before a committee of MPs last week trying to explain away his aggressive lobbying of ex-colleagues on behalf of Greensill, which has since collapsed into insolvency, was as humiliating as it was distressing. That we are citizens of a country whose former leader can behave in such a way is shocking. He claimed that lobbying for Greenshill was consistent with a commitment to public service. Really?Worse was the glaring mismatch between the former puritan apostle of austerity – we are all in this together – and the compromising of such values. And not only him. In varying degrees, the other three members of the coalition quad – chancellor George Osborne, deputy prime minister Nick Clegg and chief secretary Danny Alexander, who together imposed “peak austerity” between 2010 and 2015 – have all walked away from the public square only to raise major questions about how their new lives are consistent with their old and thus the credibility of what all politicians say as they vie for support. Our democracy is the weaker. Continue reading...

Labour won’t see power again until it remembers the essentials of winning | Andrew Rawnsley
On the all too rare occasions when it has achieved office in the past, Labour has done so with a broad appeal attracting diverse groups of votersNo political party has a divine right to exist. If they did, Britain would still be ruled by the Whigs. There have been a lot of doomy prognostications about Labour’s life expectancy since the big set of elections that alarmed many people in the party with the thought that the calamitous 2019 performance might not be the lowest they could go. A trauma was then turned into a crisis by Sir Keir Starmer. The test of a leader’s calibre is not whether he or she can avoid difficult moments. Those come with the job. The test is how they address the difficult moments. Sir Keir commended himself during his early period in charge as someone who came over as professional, serious and measured. He was none of those things when he responded to the results with a panicky, amateurish and divisive reshuffle in which he appeared intent on diminishing his deputy, Angela Rayner, only to end up giving her a mantelpiece-size set of grandiose-sounding titles. That fiasco has left Labour MPs dazed, confused, aggravated and much more doubtful as to whether their leader has a strategy for turning things around. He may be able to repair his reputation: look at the rollercoaster career of Boris Johnson to see how modern politics likes a comeback story. For now, Sir Keir’s authority is badly weakened and with it his capacity to carry his party with him. No bout of existential angst would be complete without an attention-seizing contribution from Tony Blair, Labour’s most electorally successful leader, weighing in to tell the party to “change or die”.
