Impeach by Neal Katyal review – the case against Donald Trump
A US supreme court lawyer, writing with Sam Koppelman, makes a highly persuasive case for Trump’s impeachmentOne of the most contentious issues during the 1787 debates about the US constitution was the subject of presidential impeachment. A Virginian named George Mason ultimately swayed the room: “No point is of more importance than that the right of impeachment should be continued. Shall any man be above Justice? Above all shall that man be above it, who can commit the most extensive injustice?” It was precisely the extensive power of the presidency that necessitated impeachment as the final remedy against a corrupt executive. “Shall the man who has practised corruption and by that means procured his appointment in the first instance,” Mason added, “be suffered to escape punishment, by repeating his guilt?”Neal Katyal, a law professor and former acting US solicitor general, has set out “the case against Donald Trump” in his book Impeach. An experienced trial attorney who has argued before the US supreme court, Katyal knows how to present evidence and convince a jury. The result is essentially a primer for impeachment: first its basic rules and logic, and then why he considers the publicly available evidence to be so damning. Continue reading...

Comments from Sajid Javid appear to suggest Tories are pivoting back towards close alignment with EUSajid Javid has said he has no doubt that the Conservatives, if returned to power, will agree and finalise “a very ambitious, deep and comprehensive” trade deal with the EU by the end of next year.The language is reminiscent of the Theresa May era and appears to suggest the Conservatives have pivoted away from Boris Johnson’s promise weeks ago of a “super Canada-plus” deal and are now back to close alignment with the EU – something Eurosceptics are vehemently against.

‘I’m Ikea’s first female carpenter in the UK and I love it’
Dawn Gladwin, 60, on how she spends money doing up her home but is also renovating a VW camperLast year, I became Ikea’s first female carpenter in the UK and Ireland. I’ve long been involved in building work, carpentry, decorating and tiling and other practical jobs. I like how Ikea designs the rooms in stores. However, the kind of roles I wanted never came up, so I found a job in its sales team and within six months, after I passed my probation, I ended up working extra hours in the interior design department. Months later, I was seconded to work as a carpenter in its Croydon store and then I was headhunted for Ikea’s new store in Greenwich. My job involves building podiums and walls in the store – anything to do with carpentry, really. It’s great, I love it. I really like making stuff and really love wood.I’m keen on upcycling and recycling, so I’ll often pick up the odd thing left on the street. At the moment, I’m making a load of garden furniture out of crates. I also have stack of wood ready to make into a boardwalk and seats. Continue reading...

People listen to Greta Thunberg because of her creativity, not just her science | Lisette Johnston
Creative subjects are on the decline in schools and universities, yet they are vitally important to societyBlue Planet, Extinction Rebellion and Greta Thunberg are all household names bringing information about serious environmental issues to the masses. They’ve helped green issues shoot up the agenda for this year’s general election, with a poll last month revealing that more than half of voters said that the climate emergency would influence how they cast their vote.If it wasn’t for the media these scientific messages wouldn’t be heard or understood by millions of people. And Greta Thunberg’s extraordinary global impact demonstrates her mastery of skills that have little to do with what we usually think of as science. Continue reading...

Avicii Invector review – an immersive musical tribute
Xbox One (version tested), Switch, PC, PS4; Hello There Games/Wired Productions Made in collaboration with DJ Tim Bergling, this perfect Christmas party game has players zooming across intergalactic landscapes hitting buttons in time to the beatThe search for this year’s Christmas party video game may be over. Following the rejuvenated interest in the “rhythm action” genre brought about by titles such as Beat Saber and Tetris Effect, Avicii Invector takes the cerebral visual immersion of the latter title and plants it in a beautiful, fast-paced beat experience.Made in collaboration with the superstar DJ and producer Avicii, AKA Tim Bergling, before his death last year, Avicii Invector sees you zooming across a series of gorgeous intergalactic landscapes in a WipEout-esque spacecraft, hitting buttons in time to the music on a glowing board reminiscent of the classic Guitar Hero interface. Adding to the trippy aesthetic, the gameplay has you flipping the play space 180 degrees at a time, with interludes of racing through midair rings in time to the beat. Think of Sega’s Nights Into Dreams set to a series of 25 infectious club hits. Continue reading...

From Keats to Merseybeat: a retreat into my favourite verse is a soul saver | Hannah Jane Parkinson
Poems are Swiss army knives of words – they have multiple usesI can’t remember when I fell in love with poetry, though I remember the teachers who encouraged it. I remember bringing in a lever-arch file of my own “efforts”, aged 14, mostly aping Wilfred Owen – a war poet who had the distinct advantage of having served in a war, which I had not. I had been kettled while on an Iraq protest, though, which I maintain counts for something.Living in Oxford in my late teens and early 20s, I became involved in the performance poetry scene, supporting the likes of Patience Agbabi and Lemn Sissay, and winning awards at a university I did not attend. Poetry is supposed to be read aloud, and yet I enjoy it most on the page. That way you can take it anywhere, along with your heart and your brain. In this world of cacophonous news, long reads on populism, and explainers on influencers (who I still don’t really understand or care about), a retreat into my favourite verse is a soul saver.

'Greenwashing': the go-to solution of hedge funds and oil companies
This term once meant money laundering on behalf of drug cartels, before it became shorthand for environmental propagandaThis week the TCI hedge fund announced that it would dump investments in companies that refused to disclose their carbon emissions and did not provide a plan for their reduction. And it accused fund manager BlackRock of “greenwash” for not requiring the same. Well, everybody loves green things and washing, so why is a combination of them bad?As a noun, “greenwash” has since 1987 meant commercial propaganda that propagates an environmentally virtuous public image – such as ads for oil companies featuring cute wildlife. Before that, the verb “greenwashing” was sometimes used as a term for money laundering on behalf of drug cartels, because the US dollars being laundered were “greenbacks”. Continue reading...

'Scallies with matching coldsores'? It's time to stop sneering at northern towns
The media battering of the north of England, seen recently in Jack Hurley’s Rubbish Seaside posters, fosters shame and hopelessness in those growing up there. It needs to endMaybe the driving northern rain has washed away our sense of humour. Jack Hurley’s “Rubbish Seaside”, a collection of quasi-satirical railway posters, has been billed a “backhanded love letter”. To our eyes, as teachers who work with some of the country’s most disadvantaged young people, it’s “backhanded” in much the same way that an emotionally abusive boyfriend calls you fat, but it’s you who can’t take a joke.The series did feature some nuanced and humorous social criticism. Hurley’s depiction of Manchester thoughtfully contrasted the gold-plated skyline with street-level poverty. However, his treatment of towns such as Blackpool betrayed a regrettable lack of creativity and empathy. In a local authority that has the worst public health demographics in the UK – due to savage cuts from Westminster – it seems puerile to poke fun at the “matching coldsores” sported by the “small army of scallies” Hurley sneeringly refers to in his note on the piece. Every good comedian knows the rule about punching up rather than down. Maybe an educative trip to Blackpool’s Comedy Carpet is in order. Continue reading...

Rubbish charges: from £96 for garden waste to £1.50 for a toilet
Tempers fray around the UK over high recycling fees – which some say are encouraging fly-tippingIn Dundee, Hartlepool and Fife, some residents are furious at £35 charges for collecting brown bins that come into force next year. In Richmond upon Thames, the council halted a £41 charge for household rubble due to begin this week after an angry backlash.But these are just the latest skirmishes in a war over rubbish rumbling across the UK. Nowhere is the phrase “postcode lottery” more applicable than in rubbish collection. In Harlow in Essex, residents must pay £96 a year if they want their garden waste collected from the brown bin. Ten miles up the road in Bishop’s Stortford, there is no charge. Continue reading...

Singing the blues: how music can help ease postnatal depression
Melodies for Mums singing class uses songs specially chosen to improve confidence and bondingIn the snug warmth of a children’s centre a group of mothers sing with their babies. But there is no Wheels on the Bus, no Wind the Bobbin Up. Instead, the women work their way through folk songs, lullabies and gospel, switching from Spanish to Hebrew to Igbo and Zulu and deftly following the group’s leader as she introduces rounds and three-part harmonies.This is a singing class designed not to entertain the babies – though they are perfectly happy as they chew on miniature maracas – but for the women themselves. Melodies for Mums, run by the not-for-profit social enterprise Breathe Arts Health Research, aims to help new mothers with postnatal depression (PND), or those at risk of it, combat their symptoms by singing songs specially chosen to improve confidence and help them bond with their babies. No musical experience is necessary. Continue reading...
