Brexit ‘madness’ will wreck UK steel industry, Tories warned
Sector faces glut of cheap imports because of recommendation that EU protections should not be renewedThe government was on Saturday night accused of dealing a hammer blow to the struggling British steel industry in the name of Brexit and free trade, as a fresh political row blew up over plans to allow more cheap foreign imports into the UK.Several Tory MPs in “red wall” seats, backed by the Labour party and steel industry leaders, are furious that a government body has officially recommended that protections inherited from the EU to safeguard UK producers be ended imminently by the government.

Euro 2020: Italy v Wales, Switzerland v Turkey buildup – live!
News and reaction ahead of Group A’s deciding matchesBerardi and Locatelli at the heart of revitalised young ItalyRamsey can show Italian public he is far from an unfulfilledAny comments? You can email Daniel | tweet @unitedrewind 8.06am BST On these points: Related: Wales ‘don’t want to limp across the line’, says Page with Italy test looming 8.06am BST So this stuff that’s going to be good, then. Italy have been the most impressive side we’ve seen so far, but because their best players aren’t stars yet we’re not sure how they’ll hold up when they play the best teams. Wales aren’t quite that, but their match against Turkey was one of the most intense we’ve seen so far, and in it their best players were absolutely buzzing. With both sides effectively through to the next round, we should see a pretty decent go-around – perhaps with some changes, but nevertheless.

Ask Philippa: meet the Observer’s brilliant new agony aunt
As psychotherapist and author Philippa Perry becomes our new agony aunt, she reveals why helping you with your worries will help us all. Plus, a special welcome from Jay RaynerJohn Dunton founded the Athenian Mercury in the 1690s. A paper that consisted of readers’ questions and the answers. His idea was that readers could send in dilemmas to be answered by a panel of experts, the Athenian Society. But his great innovation was that they could do so anonymously and this has remained a feature of problem pages ever since. Poor old Dunton could have done with some advice himself, because he ended his days in poverty as he was a better innovator than he was a business person. He blamed his woes on other people rather than taking responsibility for his own failings. I think an agony aunt today might have spotted that for him and possibly saved him from destitution.His panel of experts, depicted as 12 learned men with him in the centre in an engraving at the top of the pages, were largely fictitious. It was just Dunton and a couple of mates who went through all the letters in a coffee shop. Continue reading...

Love and microwaved eggs – my dinners at Dad’s
When Clare Finney’s parents divorced, she discovered her kind, clever father was fallible in one place – the kitchenI have absolutely no memory of dinners before my parents’ divorce, which is odd because I was six at the time and as divorces go theirs was quite painless. Our meals were not marred by screaming matches; there was no seething tension across the table. Mum and Dad might not have been best suited as for-better-or-for-worse partners, but they were never deliberately unkind.No doubt a psychoanalyst would suggest there is more to my amnesia than meets the eye. I prefer to focus on the dinners I can remember, those after the divorce, when life was divided into time at Mum’s house and with Dad. The split was 50:50, almost to the second, a constraint that made mealtimes more significant. Continue reading...

What life lessons can we really learn from ‘femininity coaching’?
Femininity-focused Instagram profiles are on the rise, but what do they teach us about being the person we want to be?Summer has arrived and through the hayfevered mists it’s clear to see the femininity industry is thriving. It smells amazing. The parks, the streets, they’re alive with flicky skirts, clicky heels, bronzer dusted 2cm thick in order to make up for those lost lockdown months. I have purchased a tinted lipbalm, some herbal tea and a pair of high-leg period pants this week alone. But it’s not just the vanilla-scented accessories of femininity that are available to buy today; no, these are simply the scaffolding on which the project leans.A piece I read on Refinery29 this week introduced to me the trend of “femininity coaching”, and the rise of femininity-focused Instagram profiles. Sami Wunder earns more than £1m a year coaching “high-achieving women” on how to “attract lasting romantic love” by teaching them how to use their “feminine energy” and refrain from masculine “doing” or “giving”. The Instagram account, Levels of Women, has 16,500 followers, here for content from a psychologist whose advice includes “learn to cook”, “never swear” and “don’t be impressed by a man’s wealth unless he’s spending it on you”. Instinctively, I bristle. Of course I do, a person so slathered in various posts of feminism I must complete a mental guilt worksheet before I allow myself to shave even my shins. But the timing of this trend, it interests me. Continue reading...

Instant impact: the standout players of Euro 2020
From Netherlands’ goalscoring wing-back to France’s grizzled medal-collector, we pick six of the best from the opening weekThe PSV Eindhoven wing-back has been exceptional in the opening two matches, scoring the winning goal against Ukraine and rounding off the comfortable victory over Austria with a second of the tournament having earlier won a penalty. A former Aruba international who was named after Denzel Washington, Dumfries was first called up by Ronald Koeman in 2018 but had never scored until his heroics in the opening game. The 25-year-old’s energy down the right flank has given Frank de Boer’s side an extra dimension that has helped them book their place in the next round, with Bayern Munich reported to be among the big clubs now interested in signing him.

Double climb of the Giant may give Tadej Pogacar edge in Tour de France
Slovenian aiming for Tour double but Ineos Grenadiers, led by Geraint Thomas, have been dominant this yearAs the men’s professional peloton pack up their hard-shell suitcases and head to Brittany this week for the start of the 108th Tour de France in Brest, those campaigning long and loud for a women’s race have finally been rewarded with the confirmation of a Tour de France Femmes, starting in July 2022.Change, it seems, is finally afoot, even if at a snail’s pace. The women’s eight-day race will not quite overshadow the usual speculation over who will finish on the podium in Paris on 18 July, but it may help accelerate gender parity in a sport where diversity has long been a dirty word.

In the Earth review – a breath of frightening fresh air from Ben Wheatley
Wheatley takes us into the woods with an hallucinogenic horror story of madness, malevolence and mushroomsWhile the mainstream film industry wrestled with the restrictions of the Covid crisis, the horror genre offered creative opportunities for those willing to take risks. Last year saw the writing, filming and release of Rob Savage’s Host, a brilliantly stripped-down online seance chiller, tailor-made for home viewing. Meanwhile, High-Rise director Ben Wheatley went the other way, conjuring a widescreen outdoor fiesta (written during the first lockdown and shot quickly last summer) that plays like a mashup of the 15th-century Malleus maleficarum and Merlin Sheldrake’s mycelium-themed 2020 book Entangled Life – all reimagined as a trippy horror movie. A modern-day companion piece to Wheatley’s eccentric 2013 civil war film A Field in England (complete with shroomy visions and tethered rope walks), it could well have been called A Forest in England.

The day Denmark stood still: Christian Eriksen’s collapse and the heroes who saved him
A Denmark fan recounts how it all unfolded – and what a country united in support of its team thinks of UefaA week ago Denmark’s Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch during the Euro 2020 game against Finland, having suffered a cardiac arrest. His heart had stopped beating and, according to the Denmark team doctor Morten Boesen, he “was gone”. This is the story about the heroes of Copenhagen and how Eriksen’s life was saved – and what it meant for the nation.5pm GMT, Saturday 12 June – the excitement After a year’s delay because of Covid-19, 13,790 extremely excited Denmark and Finland supporters are in the national team’s stadium, Parken. I am not one of the lucky ones so I am watching at home with my wife, her parents and our nine‑year‑old daughter. For everyone in Denmark, though, this is a special moment. There is a national team game at Parken with fans for the first time in more than a year. It is the first time Denmark have hosted an international finals and they have a good chance of going far. But 43 minutes into the match that – and everything else – ceases to matter. Continue reading...

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie captures the hypocrisies of too many ‘social justice’ zealots | Kenan Malik
The writer offers a lucid account of debate where people take offence and act cruelly‘The more she wrote, the less sure she became. Each post scraped off yet one more scale of self until she felt naked and false.” So wrote Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about Ifemelu, the central character in her 2013 novel Americanah. Through a series of beautifully observed novels that deftly map the fractures of the contemporary world – Purple Hibiscus, Half of a Yellow Sun and Americanah – Adichie has become one of the most eloquent voices of anglophone Africa. She has also become a fierce protagonist in debates over racism, feminism and free speech.Much of Adichie’s work wrestles with questions of identity in a globalised world and, in particular, what it means to be black and to be a woman. In a world of contested identities, this has inevitably drawn her into a number of controversies, most notably with trans activists. Last week, she published a three-part essay entitled It Is Obscene, which went viral, picked up by newspapers across the world. The essay is both a passionate defence of herself against her critics and a blistering polemical reflection on the state of public debate today. Continue reading...
