UK government use of Henry VIII clauses to be challenged in court

Good Law Project seeks judicial review over move to change state aid rules after Brexit without a vote in parliament

A government move to change state aid rules after Brexit without a vote in parliament is being challenged in court, with a legal campaign group warning the manoeuvre could lead to a similar lack of scrutiny in areas such as workers’ rights and environmental protections.

The Good Law Project is seeking a judicial review of the decision to get rid of EU rules about state aid incorporated into UK legislation after Brexit through the use of so-called Henry VIII powers.

Brio of Berardi and Locatelli at the heart of revitalised young Italy
Roberto Mancini’s use of the attacking strengths of two thriving Sassuolo players has helped fire an Azzurri renaissanceThis has already been a record-breaking summer for Roberto Mancini’s Italy. The Azzurri had never scored three goals in a European Championship game before their curtain-raiser against Turkey in Rome. Now they have done it twice in two matches, keeping clean sheets on both occasions.Ask their players for their magic formula, and you might be disappointed in the reply. “This team has no secret,” insisted the midfielder Nicolò Barella after Wednesday’s demolition of Switzerland. “There’s just enthusiasm, on and off the pitch. This is a compact group.” Continue reading...

Pain on the page: is this the end of the hysterical, ill woman of literature?
From Hilary Mantel to Irenosen Okojie, contemporary writers are rewriting the story of illness and the female body“I am fascinated by the line between writing and physical survival,” Hilary Mantel wrote in her 2010 essay “Meeting the Devil”. After an operation for endometriosis, she was writing about the need to express pain on the page. With her notebook always within arm’s reach, even in her morphine-fuelled fug she wrote incessantly, recording the hallucinatory and the real, inventing stories and gathering almost enough for a collection during her time as an in-patient.A notebook by the bedside is hardly revolutionary, but in the hands of an ill woman, and especially one with a gynaecological illness, its symbolism speaks to the past. Women over the centuries have not always expressed their own pain in art and literature. More often, they have had it expressed for them by men, in what Susan Sontag calls “sentimental fantasies” of suffering. Those fictions reflect the medicalised notion of the female body as inherently infirm and incapable of articulating its pain with any degree of reliability. For so long, women were advised even against reading or writing by their 19th-century doctors for fear it would inflame their maladies. Their physical survival was apparently contingent on their silence, not their testimonies. Continue reading...

Classical home listening: Pekka Kuusisto, Il Giardino Armonico and more
Kuusisto plays Muhly, Glass and Mozart, while Giovanni Antonini and co pass the time of day with Haydn• First Light (Pentatone), the first collaboration on disc between the Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto and the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, of which he is artistic director, presents works by Nico Muhly and Philip Glass: two New York composers of different generations united in friendship. Muhly’s Shrink (2019), a glittering, jittery, mischievous violin concerto written for Kuusisto, is here given its world premiere recording. The work reflects its title, contracting and intensifying as it progresses, a perfect mirror of the word “shrink” and a platform for Kuusisto in hyperactive, virtuosic mode.Glass’s The Orchard (from The Screens), in comparison, is a work of slow, long-breathed elegy. Muhly is the pianist, with Kuusisto beautifully lyrical and tender – a track you immediately want to share. The violinist has arranged Glass’s String Quartet No 3 “Mishima” for string orchestra, played here with energy and finesse, bringing alive those mid-1980s surging symmetries that first made Glass a cult figure.

Royal Ascot: day five, including the Diamond Jubilee Stakes – live!
Updates on the runners, riders and results from Royal AscotMurphy demoted then wins but is unseated on eventful dayFeel free to email Tony here or tweet him here 11.45am BST By my reckoning – and it’s been known to go awry – it is 18 years since Aidan O’Brien reached the final day of Royal Ascot with so little to celebrate. In 2003, he blanked at the entire meeting, but in every year since, he has had at least two wins on the board before the final afternoon. But not this year, when Love’s win in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes on Wednesday is all that Ballydoyle has to show for its considerable efforts this week.O’Brien has some fair chances at the top of today’s card but this has not been a meeting to remember either for the master of Ballydoyle or Ryan Moore, his No 1 rider, who has also just the win on Love to his name.

Tamal Ray’s recipe for courgette and coconut cake | The sweet spot
This riff on the classic carrot cake will have you looking at vegetables in a whole new lightIf the idea of a courgette cake has you raising a sceptical eyebrow, think of it as the summer equivalent of carrot cake. Although the courgettes add little in the way of flavour, they give texture to the crumb and, as they cook, release water that makes for a deliciously moist finish. There’s still butter and sugar in the mix, so while it’s not exactly a low-calorie recipe, it does contribute to your five a day, and is probably the closest I will ever come to writing a “healthy” cake recipe.
