Talking Horses: racecourses to waive bookies fees when spectators return
Decision to waive daily fees will reduce bookmakers’ overheads and start to revive the betting ringOn-course bookies who have been unable to work since racing resumed behind closed doors in June received some welcome news on Tuesday when Arena Racing Company and Jockey Club Racecourses, which operates 31 tracks, said that it will waive fees for bookies standing at any meeting where spectators are permitted from 2 December until at least the end of 2020.The racing industry has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, initially with a two-and-a-half-month suspension from mid-March and subsequently with the loss of six months of revenue from spectators. No group has suffered more than the on-course bookies, however, with all but a handful having been unable to work at all since mid-March. Continue reading...

Windrush Scandal A 'Shameful Stain On British History', Says Equality Commission
The Home Office’s “hostile environment” immigration measures contributed to serious injustices faced by the Windrush generation, a damning report has found.The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said the Home Office failed to comply with equality law when implementing a series of policies first introduced in 2012 by then home secretary Theresa May, and labelled the Windrush scandal a “shameful stain on British history”.The idea was to make staying in the UK as difficult as possible for people who do not have leave to remain in the hope they will depart of their own accord.The commission found that negative consequences of the policy on Black members of the Windrush generation were constantly ignored, dismissed or their severity disregarded after it looked into how the Home Office complied with the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED).It was also discovered that there was limited engagement with representatives of the Windrush generation, even as the severe effects of hostile environment policies began to emerge.Exceptions to the PSED for immigration were found to have been interpreted incorrectly or inconsistently in many cases, and there was a general lack of commitment from the Home Office to equality, the report said.The findings of the assessment support the view of the Windrush Lessons Learned Review that the experiences of the group were “foreseeable and avoidable”.Caroline Waters, interim chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said: “The treatment of the Windrush generation as a result of hostile environment policies was a shameful stain on British history.“It is unacceptable that equality legislation, designed to prevent an unfair or disproportionate impact on people from ethnic minorities and other groups, was effectively ignored in the creation and delivery of policies that had such profound implications for so many people’s lives.“Our review has identified where the Home Office fell short of its legal obligations.”The Home Office has committed to entering into an agreement with the EHRC to make clear the actions the department will take to avoid similar events occurring.The EHRC has recommended the department should consider the historical context and cumulative implications around immigration policies and take meaningful action to fully understand and comply with the PSED.Home secretary Priti Patel and permanent secretary Matthew Rycroft said in a statement: “We are determined to right the wrongs suffered by the Windrush generation and make amends for the institutional failings they faced spanning successive governments over several decades.“This report highlights a number of important areas for improvement by the Home Office, building on the work we are already doing in response to the Windrush Lessons Learned Review to apply a more rigorous approach to policy making, increase openness to scrutiny, and create a more inclusive workforce – including by launching comprehensive training for everyone working in the Home Office to ensure they understand and appreciate the history of migration and race in this country.“We are working closely with the EHRC on an action plan designed to ensure that we never make similar mistakes in the future.”It comes as MPs launched a new inquiry into the Windrush Compensation Scheme amid concerns the scandal’s victims have experienced “serious delays” and problems with claims.As well as facing long delays in receiving payouts, applicants have also complained of having to struggle with complex forms.Labour’s Yvette Cooper, chair of the home affairs select committee, said: “This is a damning report from the EHRC which shows how much the Home Office needs to change.“It is clear that the way the Home Office approached and developed the hostile environment broke equality law – with deeply damaging consequences for the Windrush generation.”Related...

We Are Who We Are review – Luca Guadagnino's teen drama burns slowly
The Call Me By Your Name director’s debut TV outing is beautifully shot and languorously paced, but it might need an energy boost if we are to stick with its angsty protagonistOnly one of the eight episodes of We Are Who We Are (BBC Three), award-winning film director Luca Guadagnino’s first television outing, was available for preview. This seems a mistake, given that the coming-of-age story of a group of teenagers on an American airbase in Italy is so clearly a slow burner. It has been described by those in the US as exquisite, lyrical, poetic and in many other terms that loosely translate as “admirable, a talent showcase and yet ever so slightly boring at first sight”. Allowing for that handicap, then, let us sally forth and, like protagonist Fraser – roaming round the new home his US colonel mother, Sarah (Chloë Sevigny), and her wife, Maggie (a mere major, played by Alice Braga), have brought him to – see what there is for us.At 14, Fraser (brilliantly played by Jack Dylan Grazer) is an unlovely piece of work. Face (complete with bumfluff moustache) set in a permanent sneer, headphones plugged as permanently into his ears, he is a self-indulgent mass of hormones and attitude. He is full of contempt for humanity and resentment of Sarah, who has brought the family to the Venuto military base so that she can take over from the outgoing commander. During one extended sequence of Frazer’s explorations of his new territory, my notes record that “he’s even annoying riding a bike”. Continue reading...
