Why are some in government wasting time briefing against the civil service? | Dave Penman
As pressure mounts over PPE and testing for coronavirus, ministers and their advisers appear to be focusing on saving careers, not lives• Dave Penman is general secretary of the FDA unionAs the government struggles to get a grip on the most significant public health emergency in a century, institutions and occupations previously subjected to acrimony, neglect or simple disregard have in the space of a few short weeks become the nation’s saviours. From the BBC to bin collectors, shop workers to care home staff: all have suddenly been recognised as vital and appreciated by public and politicians alike.However, as pressure mounts over the capacity for coronavirus testing and the supply of personal protective equipment and ventilators, finding someone to blame rather than fixing the problem seems to be the priority for some at the heart of government. Well-placed anonymous sources have started pointing fingers at everyone from the cabinet secretary, Mark Sedwill, to Public Health England. Continue reading...

With Boris Johnson in hospital, government is adrift | Simon Jenkins
As we wish the PM a speedy recovery from coronavirus, we must recognise that the machinery of power is malfunctioning Boris Johnson is ill and in hospital. That must be wretched for him and his family. We can only wish him well and a speedy recovery. His infection by Covid-19 indicates the extraordinary contagiousness of this disease and possibly its widespread prevalence. Of the first there is now no doubt. Of the second, without testing, there is no clue.That a prime minister is ill is a serious matter. Yesterday the Queen performed her duty as the nation’s figurehead with remarkable assurance. In clear, undramatic language, she spoke free of cliche and with sincerity. Her few words of hope shone through the darkening forest of the media coverage of these events. It was the first time I smiled at the television in a month. Continue reading...

French writers' coronavirus getaways prompt backlash
Accounts of bucolic isolation by Leïla Slimani and Marie Darrieussecq prompt charges of elitism and comparisons to Marie Antoinette Leïla Slimani and Marie Darrieussecq may be two of France’s most acclaimed writers – but their accounts of life in lockdown in their second homes in the countryside have unleashed an outpouring of resentment among French readers, with one fellow writer even comparing Slimani to Marie Antoinette.Slimani, who won the Prix Goncourt for her bestselling novel Lullaby, wrote in Le Monde of how she had left Paris and sequestered herself and her children in their countryside second home since 13 March, telling them that it was “a bit like Sleeping Beauty”. “Tonight, I couldn’t sleep,” she wrote. “Through my bedroom window, I watched dawn break over the hills. The icy grass, the lime trees on the branches of which the first buds appear.” Continue reading...

Poem of the week: Easter by Róisín Kelly
A chance sighting of an ex-lover sets off very ambivalent emotions, but also a kind of miracleEasterYou walk by holding a bunch of flowersnever knowing that you’ve just performed a miracle.Are those flowers for your girl?I imagine her dressed up like an Easter eggin yellow and pink. I’d tap at you like an egg,cracking your thin chocolate shell.If I were made of chocolate too, I’d breakoff parts of myself to give to you and your girl.Once, I gave my words for gardenand water and moonlit and loveto a man who kissed me. After he rolleda stone over my heart and shut me offfrom the world, I had no words leftto describe the dark dream that followed.Now you’ve walked by, godlike in jeansand an old t-shirt, the sun glinting on onesilver earring. Now a rose is once againnot only rose but also soft and redand thorn and bee and honey.Now a bird is singing song and treeand nest in a high place and blue speckled egg.You yourself are glowing with words, they moveup and down you as if they’re alive.The words bring themselves to meand tell my tongue sweetness over and over.The words are everything. With them,I’ll turn water to wine at your wedding. Continue reading...
