Labour has a strong economic plan. But it still has to shift voters’ faith in austerity | Larry Elliott
It makes sense to borrow when interest rates are low. Yet much of the public is still attached to the slogans of 2010A lost decade for the British economy is coming to a suitably downbeat end. The latest snapshots of business activity point to stagnant growth in the final three months of the year and it could be even worse than that. If the economy decides elections, the Conservatives should be heading for a thumping defeat next week. They have been in power for nine years, their record is unimpressive, confidence is low, and they are offering little in the way of tax cuts and spending increases.In the circumstances, the idea that the Conservatives might win seats next week rather than suffer a heavy defeat takes some explaining.

Selling James Bond: why No Time to Die is a product placement dream
The 2.5min trailer is not only a shopfront for the film but also for some of the world’s priciest brandsThe official trailer for the new Bond film, No Time to Die, was released only on Wednesday but has already been viewed tens of millions of times, which is an efficient sales job for a film its producers hope will make at least $1bn.Appetites have been whetted and nerves calmed in the run-up to the film’s release in April after a bumpy production. The budget for the movie – Daniel Craig’s final in the lead role – is estimated to have exceeded $250m (£190m), having rocketed after the departure of the director Danny Boyle in August 2018, who left at the 11th-hour citing “creative differences”.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg review – delightful Deneuve reigns supreme
Catherine Deneuve brings an unworldly, subtly erotic charm to Jacques Demy’s rereleased pastel rainbow of a musicalJacques Demy’s 1964 movie The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is now revived in cinemas as part of the Musicals seasons at London’s BFI Southbank, and it has to be one of the most famous non-Hollywood musicals of all time: entirely sung through, like a light opera of the semi-swinging French 60s.Catherine Deneuve plays Geneviève, a beautiful 17-year-old (bafflingly, Demy’s lyrics describe her as not beautiful) demurely working for her mother (Anne Vernon) in a quaint umbrella shop in Cherbourg. She is dating handsome young auto mechanic Guy (Nino Castelnuovo) and they are very happy, but she is devastated when Guy is called up for military service in Algeria, and even more upset when he stops writing to her. Meanwhile, her mother has serious money worries and is steering poor, bewildered Geneviève into smiling on the wealthy young man, Roland (Marc Michel), who wants to marry her. Continue reading...

Ademola Lookman keeps World Cup options open as he waits on England
RB Leipzig’s forward discusses his ‘serious decision’ for 2022, who he turns to in tough times and listening to Denzel WashingtonWhen Ademola Lookman has felt in need of reassurance – and there have been a few such occasions over the years – he calls up two men who know him better than almost anyone.Des and Felix coached him from the ages of 11 to 16, during an extended tooth-cutting process playing Sunday league football for Waterloo FC, and beyond that he has counted both as “mentors” for as long as he can remember. If uncertainty began to take root during those teenage years they would put him straight immediately, keeping his focus trained on the dream that had always consumed him. Continue reading...

Harvey Weinstein violated bail conditions by mishandling electronic ankle tag, court hears
Harvey Weinstein allegedly violated his bail conditions by mishandling his electronic ankle monitor, which left his whereabouts unrecorded for hours at a time, a New York prosecutor argued on Friday. Prosecutor Joan Illuzzi spoke at a pretrial hearing for Weinstein, who is free on $1m bail. Prosecutors accuse him of allegedly leaving home a piece of the monitoring technology that keeps the ankle bracelet activated. Defense attorney Donna Rotunno denied it was deliberate. She blamed "technical glitches" like dead batteries. Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to charges of rape and sexual assault.

The ‘Boris being Boris’ shtick is a cover for racism and lies. But it’s wearing thin | Fintan O’Toole
The underlying tension between what Johnson is and what he does is becoming a liability for the Tories’ election campaignIn his account of his first successful general election campaign in 2001, Boris Johnson confesses to a dread of the candidate’s random contact with the public: “Walkabouts generally provoke psychic stress. You can’t just walk up and down, beaming. People will try to ignore you. It is necessary to accost them whether they seem interested or not.” It is surely also a sign of stress that Johnson’s handlers concocted a now infamous video that acts out his fantasy version of a walkabout instead, with an unseen young man asking him really hard questions like: “Hey, Boris. You awright?”; “What’s on your mind today?”; “How do you typically start your day?” and “Marmite, yes or no?”, all filmed on the mean streets of Conservative party election HQ.As we’ve seen time after time in the campaign, Johnson is no good at faking intimacy, even in highly controlled settings Continue reading...
