Mike Pompeo to criticise Vatican's renewal of China deal during visit
Pope Francis reportedly declining to meet US secretary of state who says the Catholic church has been too soft on ChinaMike Pompeo will visit the Vatican to protest at the imminent renewal of a deal between the Catholic church and China, which the US secretary of state claims endangers its moral authority.Pope Francis has reportedly declined to meet Pompeo during his visit on Tuesday, citing the closeness of the US election. However such a snub is likely to be linked to Pompeo’s recent attacks on the Vatican’s perceived soft-pedalling on China’s human rights record as the two sides prepare to extend a historic agreement signed two years ago.

Not the Booker: Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell - a moving portrayal of grief
An imaginatively daring portrait of the loss of Shakespeare’s son is intensely felt, but at times rather preposterousNot the Booker 2020 shortlist: read along with us!It takes a brave writer to put words in William Shakespeare’s mouth. In Hamnet, Maggie O’Farrell almost gets away with it. Her eighth novel – which has already won this year’s Women’s prize for fiction – is named for Shakespeare’s son, who died aged 11 in 1596 of a mystery illness, though plenty of scholars have suggested that he succumbed to bubonic plague. O’Farrell goes to town on this theory, indulging in a long digressive chapter detailing the origins of the fleas in Alexandria and the series of events that are needed for, as she puts it, “a tragedy to be set in motion halfway across the world”. In this retelling, Hamnet became the inspiration for the play Hamlet, which came around four years later. Related: Shakespearean sisterhood: Maggie O'Farrell on Hamnet Continue reading...

Thomasina Miers' recipe for goat's cheese crostini with roast grapes and walnuts | The simple fix
An early-autumn snack of goat’s cheese on toast with sticky roast grapes, seasonal leaves and earthy nutsThanks to our new neighbours, we have grapes dangling over our wall in their hundreds. They are deliciously sweet, occasionally mouth-puckering and have only one drawback – pips! In these days of seedless, uniformly sweet grapes, which have had any bitterness bred out of them, a grape with pips is enough to put off any child I know. Which is a bit bonkers, really, when you consider that pips contain most of the antioxidants and goodness. Here, roast grapes are a revelation in a delicious end-of-summer salad – with pips, or without. Continue reading...

The Tory revolt against new coronavirus rules shows Johnson is not secure | Simon Jenkins
With a leadership vacuum at the top of government, parliament is trying to take back some controlFor rule of six read rule of 50. It is hard to believe that the Commons Speaker, Lindsay Hoyle, will appease Boris Johnson and refuse this week’s amendment to the Covid lockdown bill from the Tory backbench leader Graham Brady. Brady wants parliament to be free to monitor Johnson’s six-month emergency pandemic bill of unprecedented curbs on personal liberty. He claims to have 50 Tory MPs behind him, enough to get his way. Britain cannot allow its ruler dictatorial powers for a full half year.It might be otherwise. Were Britain’s test-and-trace regime remotely operational, were its Covid “case rate” better than near random (as it is related only to testing), had the government communicated convincing evidence for social distancing, and were sufficient economic counter-measures in place, public confidence might be greater. None of this applies. Rumours that Johnson’s science advisory group, Sage, wants a two-week lockdown as a “circuit breaker” have been the last straw. On whose say-so, on what evidence, with what degree of criminal enforcement? Johnson says he could bring in the army, Trump-style. Continue reading...

Have I Got News For You: 15 Things You Didn't Know About The Show As It Celebrates 30 Years On Air
For the last three decades, Have I Got News For You has been on hand to offer a sideways look at the week’s headlines, with no politician or celebrity safe from the acerbic wit of Ian Hislop and Paul Merton. The satirical panel show’s enduring popularity has meant it is now celebrating its 30th anniversary, with its 60th series due to kick off next week. To mark the milestone, we’re delving into the HIGNFY history books to bring you some surprising facts and figures you may not have known about the show...1. There have been 524 episodes of Have I Got News For You, spread out over 59 series since its debut episode on 28 September 1990.2. There have now been more episodes hosted by guest presenters than by the original host Angus Deayton, who left in 2002. Angus hosted 198 episodes of HIGNFY, while 326 episodes have been fronted by others. 3. Across those 326 episodes, 115 different people have sat in the host’s seat. 4. Alexander Armstrong holds the record for most guest host appearances on the show, at 34. He is followed by Jo Brand, who has guest hosted 24 times. 5. Andy Hamilton holds the record for most frequent guest, with 24 appearances on the panel. 6. Team captain Ian Hislop is the only person to have appeared in every single episode of Have I Got News For You. While fellow team captain Paul Merton has been with the show since the start, he took a break from series 11 of the show in 1996 – although he did make an appearance as a guest during the series, where he was a panellist on Ian’s team. 7. Despite this, Paul has won the majority of the series by a significant margin – he has triumphed in 44 of them, with Ian only winning five. Ten series ended up as a draw. 8. Even when you break it down into individual episodes, Paul still holds the record for the most wins, boasting 332 triumphs to Ian’s 167 – 25 were drawn. 9. The famous revolving back panels of the set have featured an incredible 2,623 different people. 10. The panels used to revolve with the help of three crew members winding a bicycle chain by hand. Nowadays, this function is carried out by two crew members. 11. US president Donald Trump is one of those wanted by Ian Hislop to guest present the show. “I have an awful feeling this may not happen,” he said. 12. Jeremy Clarkson once threw a biro at Ian during a recording of the show, which hit him in the face and he started bleeding. Ian claimed they had to stop filming the show but “Jeremy insisted that it wasn’t blood but red ink from the biro”. Ian continued: “He later apologised but said that he was only doing so because ‘his wife told him to’.”13. One of Paul’s personal highlights of the last 30 years was when the late Bruce Forsyth sat in the hot seat. “He was my favourite guest host,” Paul said. “He brought so much fun to the set and made it so unlike any other episode for its light entertainment values. “I find it funny that the show I liked the most is probably the one Ian hates the most!”14. The show has been recorded in four different studios over its 30 years. Its home for the majority of those three decades was at The London Studios on the capital’s Southbank prior to its closure in 2018. It subsequently moved to Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, and its upcoming series will be the first to record at the newly reopened Riverside Studios in Hammersmith. In 2001, it also recorded a one-off election special at the old BBC Television Centre in White City.15.  The upcoming 60th series will see the reintroduction of a studio audience after the last run was filmed virtually. The audience in the studio will be socially distanced and at a reduced capacity. There are also plans for a second socially-distanced audience to watch the record from a separate screening room, with their live reactions being used to recreate the impact of a full audience.Have I Got News For You returns to BBC One on Friday 2 October. READ MORE: Ian Hislop’s ‘Virtuoso’ Roasting Of Dominic Cummings Was So Lacerating Even Piers Morgan Liked It David Tennant Couldn't Resist A Dig At Eamonn Holmes While Guest Hosting HIGNFY Have I Got News For You Viewers Can't Get Over Just How Damn Surreal Its New 'From Home' Format Is

Anti-Brexit Campaign Urges Left-Wing To 'Wake Up'
A left-wing pro-free movement campaign is urging supporters to “wake up” and join protests against the US-UK trade deal and Boris Johnson’s “vicious anti-migrant policy”. Another Europe Is Possible, which spearheaded the left of centre movement against Brexit, will on Monday launch a new campaign aimed at opposing the government’s post-Brexit agenda for the country. Claiming Brits’ rights are “under attack” the group is organising socially-distanced demonstrations as part of its new ‘Fight For The Future’ drive. Events planned for early October, include speakers such as former shadow chancellor John McDonnell, Labour MPs Nadia Whittome and Clive Lewis, economist Ann Pettifor, War on Want’s director Asad Rehman, Global Justice Now director Nick Dearden and the TSSA union’s Manuel Cortes. Another Europe says left wing campaigners despondent about the general election result for Labour need to refocus efforts on opposing the government. Michael Chessum, national organiser for Another Europe, told HuffPost UK: “The government is going to use the coming months to drive through unprecedented changes to our economy and society.“With coronavirus dominating the headlines, Johnson is pressing ahead with US trade negotiations and has already announced plans to scrap social and environmental protections, as well as human rights.“There is huge public opposition to economic deregulation and the lowering of food standards, but unless we build a big, loud opposition to what the Tories are planning, it could all happen very quickly.“The left and the remains of the anti-Brexit movement need to wake up.”It comes as negotiations between the UK and the EU on the future relationship are at a critical stage and as trade secretary Liz Truss continues talks with the US administration, insisting there will be no bargaining down of rights or food standards. But Whittome, who is MP for Nottingham East, said Johnson was presiding over “a race to the bottom”.She said: “The government has a majority in parliament, but real power always comes from below. Covid means that we must be careful about safety when we mobilise, but we must now build a movement that is capable of providing serious opposition to what the Tories want to do.“We are talking about the biggest attempt to deregulate the economy in British history. We need to defeat what we can, and keep an alternative vision alive.”Alena Ivanova, an organiser for the Right to Stay campaign and Another Europe, said: “As it stands, EU citizens without settled status will lose their legal right to be in the UK from June 2021 - and even with a 99% success rate, that would still mean tens of thousands of people who have made Britain their home being liable for deportation.“Already, many migrants have been given only a partial pre-settled status, and some have been rejected outright. This is an emergency, and we can’t just rely on asking politicians nicely. We need to raise the alarm about this time bomb, build public pressure and fight for an unconditional right to stay for everyone.”Related...
