The rebel who bowled the whole world over, and off the pitch, Bob Willis was just as surprising 

Bob Willis, who died yesterday aged 70, may be best remembered for his stunning bowling in Headingley in 1981, where he bowled England to victory, or how he played in New Zealand in 1978.

Election result signifies realignment of UK politics
Rather than a one-off attempt by voters to ‘get Brexit done’ this election looks more like a fundamental changeGeneral election results latest - live newsIt has already become clear that the 2019 general election represents one of the more significant moments in postwar British politics: where the shockwaves triggered by the result of the 2016 Brexit referendum have translated into a Conservative landslide in England and Wales and disaster for the Labour party.Nearly 35 years after the end of the miners’ strike and the ensuing closure of the nation’s pits, angry, frustrated voters in seats like Blyth Valley, in Northumberland, have been prepared to elect a Conservative MP to end the Brexit wrangling – and to send Labour the message: we are not prepared to elect you.

Labour has been catapulted into conflict. That's not necessarily a bad thing | Zoe Williams
The party now faces a reckoning. What were the reasons for its defeat, and how can it rebuild?There is no gilding this result: it assures a Johnson-style Brexit, and his abiding style is fecklessness. It unfolded exactly as the Conservatives, the pollsters, the commentators predicted: it was won and lost on the “red wall”, Labour seats that hadn’t shifted since the 1950s toppling to the Conservatives.Blyth Valley, which declared third, before midnight, said it all: except it didn’t, because a majority counted in three digits never really says anything. Workington was a decisive win for the Conservatives, and had the added boost of being an election meme – Workington man, always Labour, likes rugby, voted Brexit, wants it done – which came true. Labour gaining Putney was a bizarre flash, a recollection of something that seemed terribly important a mere 12 hours ago. Chingford and Woodford Green was especially painful, a stark reminder of what everyone knew: that if the Liberal Democrats and Labour had managed to come together, huge figures of the Conservative party could have been deprived a seat.
