The Lib Dems have the most radical approach to crime and justice | Jamie Grierson
While the Tories take a hard line and Labour aims to divert young people from crime, the Lib Dems offer a public health approachFrom the off, the Conservative party hardline approach on crime and justice under Johnson’s premiership became clear: 20,000 new police officers on the streets was one of his first pledges, followed by increased use of stop and search, prison expansion, more Tasers, and longer jail sentences – all of which have ended up in the manifesto.So, clearly, tough on crime. But what about the causes of crime? Very little on offer. The manifesto briefly mentions a prison education service focused on work and a new approach to drug addiction treatment to reduce drug deaths. Continue reading...

Brexit hits UK ski and holiday staff overseas
Study shows a third have lost jobs as travel firms fear new rules on Britons working abroadA third of UK seasonal jobs in ski resorts and summer activity holidays have disappeared because of fears over Brexit, research shows.A year after the industry warned that 25,000 jobs were at risk, a survey of 65 independent travel specialists including Mark Warner, Ski World and festive operators in Lapland revealed that a third – 1,700 among those polled – had already gone. Industry leaders have said their business models are not sustainable outside the EU because companies will no longer be able to hire and deploy British staff on temporary contracts post Brexit.

Hannah Dines on going public with her labia surgery: ‘It started a big conversation’
The Paralympic cyclist wrote about the damage the sport had caused her. The article caused an outcry, others with similar experiences contacted her – and manufacturers finally began designing saddles for womenThe day after I wrote in the Guardian about how my life as a female cyclist, and Paralympian, led to me having reconstructive surgery of my vulva – all because saddles are not designed for women – a book arrived in the post. It was The Vagina Bible by Dr Jen Gunter. It was a gift from my mum, who had read the searing details about my labial surgery. She has always had a good sense of humour.The response from other people was overwhelming. That is the thing when you share – people share back. When the first professional cyclist contacted me to tell me she had gone through the same thing, the relief was so profound that I cried. I can now say with certainty that there are other people like me who, due to the wrong kind of pressure, experienced a cycle of chronic inflammation and swelling. These are people for whom cycling is as necessary to life as breathing and they face an impossible dilemma. Continue reading...

She reflects on her decision and the aftermathWhen the Conservative MP Mark Field leapt from his chair, pushed a female Greenpeace protester against a pillar, gripped the back of her neck and then manhandled her out of a Mansion House banquet in June, he probably did not anticipate the headlines.Janet Barker, the climate emergency activist, was not alone in being stunned at his hot-headed actions. When TV footage emerged capturing Field’s ferocious look as he propelled Barker roughly towards the exit, it unleashed a formidable backlash. Continue reading...

UK still funding Myanmar camps despite UN boycott over conditions
Humanitarian agencies say Rohingya people displaced by violence in Rakhine state are forced to live in ‘apartheid-like’ facilitiesThe UK has broken ranks with the UN and is continuing to put money into squalid Rohingya “apartheid-like” camps, despite a policy designed to avoid complicity in Myanmar’s rights abuses, the Guardian has learned.Internal briefing documents as well as interviews with UN and humanitarian agency officials in Myanmar showed the British government was maintaining a policy of providing aid and other support to displaced people living in camps in Myanmar’s Rakhine state that have been slated for closure since 2017.

That damned woman: why my Faustus is female
In a new version of the enduring myth, Chris Bush sets the story in 17th-century London with a young woman who sells her soulA man (it is almost always a man) strikes a deal for greatness and pays a terrible price for it. The Faust myth teaches us to be careful of what we wish for, that pride comes before a fall, that nothing comes for free. Faustus is bored by the limits of his mortality (and his humanity) and so seeks supernatural aid. Only when the devil comes to claim his due does Faustus realise he has reached too far. He begs forgiveness, but it’s too late – he’s made his bed and now he must lie in it.The story endures because greed endures, and ambition endures, and we are never short of contemporary figures who believe they can beat the system, or that the rules needn’t apply to them. A modern Faustus might be a tech billionaire, a doctor playing God, or a Boris Johnson-type signing over his soul to a Mephistophelian Dominic Cummings figure – the only part that may feel like a stretch is that, in most versions, Faustus gets his comeuppance.

This isle is full of noises: the trouble with 'English music'
Over the past century, the term ‘English music’ has solidified into a narrow nostalgic genre with - now - Brexity overtones. But the rich variety of the UK’s classical music knows no bordersWhen Arnold Schoenberg died in 1951, Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote that the composer “meant nothing to me – but as he apparently meant a lot to a lot of other people I daresay it is all my own fault.” To English composers working in the 1920s – such as Vaughan Williams, Herbert Howells and Gerald Finzi – the sounds of European modernism, and especially the 12-tone music of Schoenberg, Berg and Webern, came to symbolise disorder and chaos. Following the first world war, stability and reassurance, folksong and archaic modality, the refuge of unspoilt rural idylls, had become the prevalent direction of English music. Folksong earthed music in fundamental truths – the very same roots that Schoenberg’s atonality, apparently, weeded out.Vaughan Williams deserves respectful understanding. As an ambulance driver during the war, he had witnessed Europe at its most destructive. Flos Campi (Flower of the Field), his 1925 work for viola, chorus and chamber orchestra, was his shell-shocked memorial to the fallen. But, almost a century later, the instinctive suspicion within the UK’s mainstream classical music culture for central European music feels far less forgivable. Continue reading...

No Brexit, no Johnson, no Corbyn. Is that too much to ask? | Rafael Behr
My dream election result is still just about possible. But I’m not holding out much hopeWhen Boris Johnson became prime minister, I asked a European diplomat, a veteran of overseas missions, for help putting Britain’s political mess in perspective. Where, I asked, did we sit on the spectrum of international dysfunction? The diagnosis was mostly reassuring: a wobble not a nosedive. But there was one symptom of profound malaise – people contacting the embassy in search of an EU passport. In stable democracies, it is not normal to shop around for alternative citizenship as insurance against your home state turning rogue.I have had those conversations – some half-joking, some deadly serious – with people activating dormant Irish ancestry or adopting the nationality of continental partners. I know couples, happily unmarried for years, who have tied the knot in order to expedite naturalisation or guarantee their children’s status as British and European. Before the referendum, that combination was available without government permission. Continue reading...
