A woman's place appears to be anywhere but the Downing Street press briefing | John Crace
Asked to rise to the occasion for the third time in a week, Random Raab almost produced some coherent sentencesCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageCoronavirus is man’s work. At least, that appears to be the government’s assessment of it, for in the three weeks of daily Downing Street press briefings, not once has a woman minister been allowed out to be front-of-house compere. Priti Patel, Liz Truss and Thérèse Coffey have become all but invisible. Missing in action. They might as well not exist.For the third time this week it was Dominic Raab – the de facto prime minister while Boris Johnson is in intensive care – who did the business for the government. And, to be fair, he’s getting visibly better at it. He looks less unstable and more the man who can easily see out 24 hours of close police interrogation over unsolved missing persons cases. Though he might have struggled if anyone had questioned him about the disappearance of the home secretary. Continue reading...

Have these Premier League players done enough to earn new contracts?
Jeff Hendrick, Jan Vertonghen, Willian and Ryan Fraser are all out of contract soon. Should their clubs offer them new deals?By Martin Laurence for WhoScoredFifa announced this week that players whose contracts were due to expire in June can be offered short-term extensions to let them complete the current season with their clubs. The clarification means that players who thought they had played their last game for their clubs may now stay on until the 2019-20 season finishes.Clubs are likely to take up the option in most cases given their inability to sign replacements – the rescheduling of the transfer window is another matter to be decided – but should they be offering longer-term deals to these players? Here are 10 players whose futures remain up in the air and our suggestions for what their clubs should do. Continue reading...

The Treasury is asking for a big overdraft. Fine, as long as its short-term | Nils Pratley
Any mention of helicopter money is a bit too reminiscent of how long we’ve endured quantitative easingPlease don’t mention helicopters or magic money trees. The subtext of the Treasury and the Bank of England’s announcement that the former will be running up an overdraft with the latter was not hard to decipher. The financial authorities are anxious to avoid the impression they’ll soon be printing money to tackle the Covid-19 shock to the economy.They laboured their point. The ways and means facility – effectively, the government’s account at the Bank – is “pre-existing” and “long-established”. It will be used now only on “temporary and short-term” basis; “any drawings will be repaid as soon as possible before the end of the year”. We get the picture. Continue reading...
