Urgent change needed to stem femicides, says new domestic abuse tsar
The commissioner for England and Wales attacks ‘postcode’ lottery on response to killing of womenThe first commissioner for domestic abuse for England and Wales, who will have significant powers once the domestic abuse bill becomes law early next year, has committed to working closely with the campaign to tackle femicide – the killing of women at the hands of men.At a virtual event last Thursday, attended by more than 600 people, Nicole Jacobs expressed her “sheer frustration” at the “postcode lottery” and lack of a co-ordinated response on the part of agencies to tackle the killing of women. “We all have such an urgency for change” she said.

Bill Bailey: Comic, musician … and now Strictly dance master
Behind the comedian’s hippy persona lies a quick mind and even quicker step, as fans of the TV show are finding outBill Bailey has been focusing on Blondie. Specifically on the band’s 1978 hit One Way or Another. It is a slightly menacing track, covered more recently, it is true, by One Direction, in a way that took it closer to irritant than menace. The question was, could its pulsing, insistent rhythm take Bailey a two-step closer to the top slot in Strictly Come Dancing?This far into the show’s 18th series, the 55-year-old British comedian and dance contestant is established as a seasonal tonic for the nation, but last week the betting was also odds on that he would make it all the way through to the final.

Anything but the virus: Roman bar calls time on all Covid chat
Locals welcome chance to meet up and gossip about the weather and football in a more convivial atmosphereCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageThe patrons of a bar in Rome can talk about history, gossip, culture, the weather – anything but coronavirus. Cristina Mattioli, owner of the aptly named Bar Feeling, banned all Covid chat after the mood became too heavy, spoiling the convivial atmosphere, especially over morning coffee.She recently pinned two notices behind the bar. One of them reads: “Speaking about coronavirus is prohibited”, while giving examples such as prophesying over possible outcomes of the pandemic or what rules might be included in the next government decree. The sign next to it suggests alternative topics of conversation, including who will win this season’s Grande Fratello VIP, the Italian version of Big Brother. Continue reading...

The Observer view on Donald Trump and the murder of Iran’s leading nuclear scientist | Observer editorial
As the president lashes out wilfully during his last days in office, it seems likely that he at least gave the nod to this killingDangerous military adventurism in the dying days of a US presidency is not without recent precedent. In December 1992, George HW Bush sent 25,000 US troops to Somalia, weeks before handing over to Bill Clinton. The US intervention ended badly with the 1993 battle of Mogadishu, scene of the infamous “Black Hawk Down” incident.In 2009, Israeli officials are said to have sought US help and weapons for an airstrike on Iran before Barack Obama took office. George W Bush refused. Advice given to Bush was similar to that which Donald Trump reportedly received from officials in a briefing this month: a military strike would be ineffective, could push Iran closer to building an atomic bomb and might start a war.

My husband donates money to the church, but leaves me short
It’s not about the money, says Mariella Frostrup. You describe your husband as if he were a stranger, so think hard about your futureThe dilemma I’m a 60-year-old woman and although I have worked for years teaching English, I have always been financially dependent on my husband. He is very involved in the evangelist church and gives them a percentage of his salary. The knowledge of this, together with a constant struggle to get by, has made me feel so bitter. I contemplated leaving, when the children were younger, because of his strong Christian values and my strong non-Christian values and all the complications of this. But I didn’t have the courage to plunge both myself and the children into further hardship.This issue has come to the fore again as I struggle to help one of my daughters out with university fees. How can he give so much to a church when he knows our children are struggling? It just makes me mad. But he perhaps rightly feels that it is his salary to do as he wishes with. I am aware that my dependency is my own fault. My way of dealing with all this has been to plunge myself into a number of outside activities that have allowed me, at little expense, a lovely social world far removed from my husband’s church circle, which I find so oppressive.

Northcote at Home: ‘Am I a fan? Yes’ – restaurant review
Christmas comes early with two gloriously indulgent gourmet boxes sent from LancashireNorthcote at Home. Book by 10am Friday for delivery the next week (northcote.com). Autumn gourmet box for two £90, classic menu for two £105, delivery £10The doorbell rings and Christmas arrives early, enclosed in two sturdy, cardboard boxes. Unfortunately, it’s the worrying, anxious version of Christmas. You want everything to be perfect. You want the food to be an ethereal delight, even while a knot of anxiety tightens deep in your stomach, because there’s a chance it will instead be a fraught, angry mess of racist relatives and violated turkeys. This is where I am right now: trying to bring sparkly pools of light into a daily lockdown routine with all the texture of beige velour, while worrying that my efforts will merely emphasise the depths of our predicament.

Beware going 'back to normal' thoughts – normal gave us Trump | Robert B Reich
Fatigued by the coronavirus and Trump, the idea of going back to normal is seductive – we must guard against it“Life is going to return to normal,” Joe Biden promised on Thursday in a Thanksgiving address to the nation. He was talking about life after Covid-19, but you could be forgiven if you thought he was also making a promise about life after Trump.It is almost impossible to separate the two. To the extent voters gave Biden a mandate, it was to end both scourges and make America normal again. Continue reading...

The Observer view on Sunak's callous spending review | Observer editorial
This short-sighted chancellor has short-changed those most at riskThe impacts of this pandemic will continue to be felt long after vaccines have generated enough Covid-19 immunity to eliminate its immediate threat to human health. There are the tens of thousands of lives that have been ended decades too soon, leaving gaps that will never be filled in the hearts of loved ones and, last week, the scale of the long-term economic damage that this virus will wreak was set out by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility. Not only is the economy forecast to experience an 11.3% contraction this year, the biggest in more than three centuries , but the pandemic will leave the economy 3% smaller in the long run. It may not sound like much but, without significant redistribution, the job losses and pay cuts will leave countless families in dire financial straits.This is the backdrop against which the chancellor’s spending review must be assessed. The right question to ask of Rishi Sunak’s announcements is whether he is directing enough resources at economic recovery, in the context of one of the deepest recessions this country has ever known. At a time when the cost of borrowing is so low, Sunak should be throwing everything at getting the economy moving again and protecting the least affluent families and regions from Covid-19’s worst impacts. A failure to do so will not only prolong the crisis, it will trigger intergenerational cycles of hardship across areas of the country that will take decades to recover from. Continue reading...
