Fear and loathing in Dover, where Brexit and Covid meet
Residents of the Kent ferry port vent their fury at tier 3 restrictions about to be imposed on them Coronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageWith its fruit-filled orchards, Kent has long prided itself on being the Garden of England. But now there is anger that a couple of rotten apples – the boroughs of Swale and Thanet – have plunged the whole county into tier 3 status when lockdown ends on Wednesday.Last week, seven Conservative MPs from across Kent wrote to Matt Hancock, the health secretary, to attempt to break the tier system down along district or borough lines. Although Swale has England’s highest Covid infection rate at 530 per 100,000 people, the Tunbridge Wells rate is less than a quarter of that and is below the national average Continue reading...

The big picture: revolution in the air
John Cohen found a country looking to break free of colonial rule in his light-filled image of Morocco in the 50sThe American photographer and folk musician John Cohen was 23 when, in 1955, the idea first formed in his head to go to Morocco. Cohen subsequently became famous as the first chronicler of the young Bob Dylan, and was a friend to Jack Kerouac, but his desire to visit north Africa was more a whim than any beatnik pilgrimage. “That was my first trip out, my first adventure,” he noted before his death last year. “I went to the New York phone book, because I thought maybe I needed a visa.”There was no embassy listed, just a “Moroccan office of information”. That proved to be an upstairs apartment in the borough of Queens. There, Cohen found a man who explained how he was lobbying the UN for Moroccan independence. He wrote Cohen a note in Arabic with instructions to present it to a ship’s chandler, who worked on the docks in Tangier. “He’ll send you on to the others.” Cohen thought: “The others?” Continue reading...

If Rishi Sunak fears for the deficit, why does he back Brexit? | William Keegan
The chancellor’s hawkish turn is strange in a man so relaxed about the loss of output, and revenues, from leaving the EUMy Irish mother taught me always to “try to see the good in people”. Alas, with this government it’s a bit of a problem. George Osborne and his needless austerity programme was bad enough. But this lot are taking bad government to new depths.Last week was very much Chancellor Sunak’s show. His speech on Wednesday was preceded by so many media leaks that very little came as a surprise. But I fear that behind that ingratiating smile lies an insouciant cynicism that, whatever it achieves for his almost naked ambition, will do this country no good at all. Continue reading...

It's been a bad year for the number crunchers | Torsten Bell
People seem to neither understand nor trust key economic data but there’s a silver lining for us wonks This has been a bad year for bad news. Last week’s disappointment was laser-targeted at those of us who spend our days analysing the likes of GDP and unemployment figures: apparently, no one believes a word of it. So says new research supported by the very people producing the nation’s statistics (the imaginatively named Office for National Statistics). Having surveyed the public, the authors conclude that they have a pretty loose understanding of the economic statistics thrown at them. Worse, they don’t trust them. Less than half could define GDP and many believe unemployment and inflation are higher than official figures show.This comes hard on the heels of the data fail that saw 16,000 positive Covid test results drop off the bottom of an Excel spreadsheet, meaning thousands more people at risk of infection were not contacted.

Senior Tories fear £4bn cut to overseas aid will be made permanent
MPs campaigning against chancellor’s plans believe they can ‘humiliate’ the government into U-turnSenior Tories fear that the cut to Britain’s aid budget will become permanent, amid a growing campaign inside and outside parliament to reverse the decision.Conservatives opposed to the move are already vowing to “humiliate” the government by forcing it to stand by its manifesto commitment to spend 0.7% of GDP on overseas aid – a vow chancellor Rishi Sunak said he would breach in his review of public spending last week. He announced that £4bn would effectively be cut from the aid budget by reducing it to 0.5%, despite pleas from Tories and the archbishop of Canterbury. Continue reading...

It was Maradona's defiance that most inspired me | Kenan Malik
Footballing genius aside, his greatness lay in transcending his all too human flawsI can still remember where I was when, in 1986, Diego Maradona scored with the “hand of God”. In a flat on the Coventry Cross estate, in east London. An Asian family lived there, one of a handful on the estate, who had faced vicious racist attacks. An England-Argentina game, just four years after the Falklands conflict, was a threatening proposition. I was part of a group that organised support for besieged black families. So, there I was, with half an eye on what might be happening outside, watching Maradona destroy England, first with his left hand and then, four minutes later, by slaloming through the England team, finding space where none should have been, scoring possibly the most audacious goal in World Cup history.Amid the praise heaped upon Maradona over the past week, it’s easy to forget how despised he was in Britain in those days. Or why many, like me, took to him because he was so despised. He was to football as Muhammad Ali had been to boxing. Continue reading...
