Boris Johnson's 'mutant' planning algorithm could scar England for ever | Simon Jenkins
A Dominic Cummings-influenced white paper throws land open to uncontrolled building – but could spark a Tory revolt When Dominic Cummings stormed out of Downing Street earlier this month he left behind a time bomb more explosive than any pandemic recession or no-deal Brexit. Those pestilences will pass. If enacted, the Cummings-inspired white paper Planning for the Future will scar England’s face for ever.The paper promises to shift the appearance of England. It intends to throw open landscapes, especially across the south-east, to uncontrolled “build, build, build”. It will tip wealth yet further towards London and end any levelling-up of the north. It will abolish the ages-old distinction in British planning between built-up areas and the 70-80% of land that is still rural. It will leave poorer city centres to decline, result in villages doubling or trebling in size, and building dribbling from one town into the next. Fields and open spaces will disappear.

NHS To Trial Blood Test That Checks For 50 Types of Cancer
A simple blood test that could detect more than 50 types of cancer will be trialled by the NHS.More than 165,000 people in England will be offered the Galleri blood test, which can spot early-stage cancers years before diagnosis.The test, developed by the US company Grail, is designed to detect molecular changes caused by cancer in people with no obvious symptoms.It may be able to identify cancers that are difficult to diagnose early, such as head and neck, ovarian, pancreatic, oesophageal and some blood cancers.The large-scale pilot is due to start in mid-2021 and if the test works as expected for people without symptoms, it will be rolled out more widely.Sir Simon Stevens, NHS England chief executive, said the test had the potential to “save many lives”.He said: “While the good news is that cancer survival is now at a record high, over a thousand people every day are newly diagnosed with cancer.“Early detection – particularly for hard-to-treat conditions like ovarian and pancreatic cancer – has the potential to save many lives.“This promising blood test could therefore be a game-changer in cancer care, helping thousands more people to get successful treatment.”Health secretary Matt Hancock said: “We are building a world-leading diagnostics industry in the UK – not just for coronavirus but for other diseases too.“This exciting and groundbreaking new blood test from Grail will give us another tool to give more people the very best chance of survival, demonstrating how the UK continues to lead the way in using the latest innovative treatments to help patients.“Many of us know a loved one who has battled against cancer and have seen first-hand the impact of this deadly disease.”Related...

An Event, Perhaps by Peter Salmon review – a timely biography of Jacques Derrida
A slim intellectual Life effectively summarises Derrida’s thought and the origins of deconstruction, but is frustratingly reticent about the texture of his lifeJacques Derrida was born in Algiers in 1930 to a Jewish family of Spanish extraction. His parents named him after Jackie Coogan, the child star of Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid – a sign of the family’s sliding sense of origin and thoughts of life elsewhere. They aspired to the status of colonial French bourgeoisie, but were treated as Arab Jews, and were stripped of French citizenship during the second world war. As Peter Salmon tells us in his slim biography, Derrida later considered an equivocal identity essential to his intellectual development: “Could I explain anything without it, ever? No, nothing.” Add to this the death of an older brother, just 10 months before Jacques was born, and you have a writer convinced that the ground of thought and life might easily drop away.Salmon is frustratingly reticent about the texture of his subject’s life, and frequently relies for both fact and surmise on the 2014 biography by Benoît Peeters; but he does give a vivid account of Derrida’s anxious entry into academic life. He was a serial mucker-up of exams, and when he eventually got into the prestigious École normale supérieure in Paris, he produced a thesis of which his mentor Louis Althusser said: “I can’t grade this, it’s too difficult, too obscure.” (Althusser passed it on to Michel Foucault, who declared it deserved either an A or an F.) Derrida was in his mid-30s before his dogged work on the phenomenology of Edmund Husserl turned into something else: a giddy pursuit, via close reading of the canon, of certain presuppositions in all of metaphysics. And a style to go with it, which his friend Jean Genet described best: “The usual coarse dynamism that leads a sentence to the next seems in Derrida to have been replaced by a very subtle magnetism, found not in words, but beneath them, almost under the page.” Continue reading...
