Why the Leeds hospital conspiracy theory is so seductive to Conservatives | Tom Whyman
Viral posts spreading a lie have a simple purpose: to drown out your opponent’s messageThe photograph of a four-year-old boy asleep on the floor of Leeds General Infirmary because of a lack of beds has become a fixture of this final week of the general election: not just as an illustration of the damage almost 10 years of Tory rule have done to the NHS, but because of the prime minister’s cartoonishly callous reaction to it.The photo is horribly, brutally real. Dr Yvette Oade, the chief medical officer at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS trust, personally apologised for how the boy and his family were treated. But this did not prevent a conspiracy theory from emerging. Continue reading...

Dated sexual politics and too much hair gel — I don't love Richard Curtis's Christmas classic, actually
This isn't how the Christmas countdown is supposed to go. Usually, by this point in December, we've had several weeks to wrap presents, pre-order turkeys and generally work ourselves up into a festive frenzy. This year, however, that time has been taken up with another issue of national importance — the general election. The only concession to Christmas? Mince pies for canvassing fuel and the 2003 film Love Actually becoming a ubiquitous campaign meme.

Politics is getting coarser — but I wouldn't miss election night for anything
This will be my fifth overnight election programme in four years (two elections, the EU referendum, Trump) and if the last four are anything to go by, the night will fly by, with plenty of surprises along the way. Will the SNP sweep the board again as they did in 2015? Will the Prime Minister win the election, but lose his own seat? Will an unlikely campaign to shift the Foreign Secretary from his ultra-safe seat succeed? And what about former Tory leader, Iain Duncan Smith, battling to hold on in the rather more marginal Chingford and Wood Green?

Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles review – story that raised the roof everywhere
Surprising revelations and praise from famous fans add to the appeal of this documentary about the world-conquering Broadway musical Fiddler on the RoofDirector Max Lewkowicz’s richly detailed documentary celebrates the illustrious Broadway show Fiddler on the Roof, the evergreen shtetl-set musical first staged in 1964 with choreography and direction by Jerome Robbins and Zero Mostel as Teyve, the milkman.Contributions from a range of interviewees – including people attached to the original production, such as producer Hal Prince and lyricist Sheldon Harnick, and famous fans of the show, including Fran Lebowitz and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda – help to structure the history lesson about how Fiddler became a massive international hit. That account is filled out with footage of recent productions from around the world, including one in Japanese and one by some African American high-school kids in Brooklyn, as well as the 1971 film version, starring Chaim Topol and directed by Norman Jewison. Among the many tasty trivia titbits on offer here is the fact that Jewison, despite the name, is not in fact Jewish. Who knew? Continue reading...
