Sunak needs coherent plan with serious firepower for great economic escape
Productivity is key but boosting it will take state as much as private investment after years of neglectBritain’s economy is at a turning point. Growth is slowing, with the rising chance of recession, inflation is at the highest level for 40 years, and expected to hit 11% this autumn as the country suffers an earlier and more painful economic firestorm than most other nations.That it was considered big news for the governor of the Bank of England to spell out these uncomfortable home truths this week was perhaps surprising given the regular drip-drip of economic pain that has sent confidence among consumers to its lowest depths since the 1970s.

The Railway Children Return review – family classic sequel stays on track
Plot riffs on the original story include a black US serviceman on the lam in this earnest but likable homage to the beloved 1970 kids’ adventureJenny Agutter became a British cinema hall-of-famer as Roberta, or Bobbie, in the much-loved 1970 family classic The Railway Children, about three children forced by circumstance to move with their mother to a cottage in Yorkshire and have adventures involving steam trains. She returned to play the mum in a 2000 TV movie version, and now Agutter is back as her original character, 40 years older, in this sparky sequel imagining a new generation of railway children in 1944, a reboot devised and co-written by producer Jemma Rodgers and directed by Morgan Matthews.Maybe it’s a bit self-conscious in the way it revives and reimagines the classic plot points, and there could be historical authenticity issues. Would US army military police really have been allowed to arrest an underage British civilian and transport her across country in handcuffs? But there’s a fair bit of fun, channelling bygone classics such as Hue and Cry and Whistle Down the Wind. Continue reading...

Bilingual poetry book about A470 sets Welsh hearts racing
Welsh-English anthology about Welsh equivalent of Route 66 republished twice since release on St David’s DayIt is variously described as a snake, a zip, a ribbon, a scar, a Welsh version of Route 66. Memories, myths and moments of love and grief are woven into a collection of poems celebrating an unusual subject – the A470 road that links north and south Wales.Though the subject matter may seem unpromising, the collection A470: Poems for the Road / Cerddi’r Ffordd, has proved popular with critics and readers and has already been reprinted twice since it was launched on St David’s Day in March.

Gwenno: Tresor review – more alluring Cornish psych-pop
(Heavenly)The Welsh sound artist, performing almost entirely in Cornish, explores nature and motherhood on her ambitious third albumRaised by a Welsh activist mother and a Cornish poet father, Gwenno Mererid Saunders has become a one-woman Celtic revival over her two previous albums, 2014’s Welsh-language Y Dydd Olaf and 2018’s all-Cornish Le Kov. Using slinky synth-pop backings, both fuse language, landscape and identity, by turns angry and playful.Tresor continues in a similar but more accomplished vein, setting layers of Gwenno’s ethereal vocals against arrangements that slip between the polished pop of Ardamm and psych-folk explorations such as Men An Toll, a soundscape for a trio of standing stones at Land’s End. As usual, Gwenno’s partner, multi-instrumentalist Rhys Edwards, remains at the production controls, but this is very much a collaborative effort. Though NYCAW (Nid yw Cymru ar Werth – Wales is Not for Sale) flies the flag for her homeland, the rest of Tresor is rendered in Cornish. While occasionally confrontational – “Where is your mother tongue?” it demands at one point – its songs are predominantly introspective and allusive, drawing on nature (Kan Me celebrates the May hawthorn) and on Gwenno’s recent entrance into motherhood. An ambitious album (it comes with an 8mm film and several quirky videos) from a unique artist. Continue reading...
