  16. Grateful for support over Iran, Hunt wishes it had come a little sooner Foreign secretary happy to accept accolades over Iran tanker seizure even if Tory leadership game is upIt could have been a rather lonely outing for Jeremy Hunt. With Mark Field suspended after grabbing an Extinction Rebellion protester by the neck and Alan Duncan having chosen to jump before he was pushed, the Foreign Office is currently running a skeleton staff of junior ministers.It’s also possible that, come Wednesday evening, Boris Johnson will choose to punish Hunt for having the temerity to stand against him in the leadership contest by elbowing him out of a job. At which point the Foreign Office will be staffed by almost no ministers who have any idea what they are doing. Just as well we’re not on the brink of war with Iran, then. Continue reading...

  17. Alaphilippe allows France to dream in Tour where panache is overriding strategy | Richard Williams Host country’s hopes of first title winner since 1985 are high after a breathtaking weekend thanks to Julian Alaphilippe’s risk-takingThe headline writers of L’Équipe seldom let you down. On Sunday they scraped the mould off a pun – JOUR DE FRANCE – held in storage for almost three and a half decades. Those words were chosen to celebrate a day on which all the nation’s stars aligned in the bike race that represents its greatest sporting spectacle: a Frenchman won the queen stage on the Col du Tourmalet with another Frenchman successfully defending the yellow jersey in its centenary year and the president of the republic along for the ride. And there was now the strong possibility that the race might be won by a home rider for the first time since Bernard Hinault in 1985.

  21. I’m a Jewish woman. And, finally, I feel confident about Labour | Nadine Batchelor-Hunt Despite my initial cynicism, now I’ve studied Jeremy Corbyn’s No Place for Antisemitism campaign I believe he’s sincereAs someone who is both black and Jewish, Labour’s antisemitism crisis has been uniquely distressing. Traditionally the anti-racist party in British politics, Labour has always made me feel safe and secure as a black woman. But as a Jewish woman, I have felt increasingly alienated, unwanted and threatened, resulting in me cancelling my party membership in 2017. After years of failure in rooting out antisemitism – a recent example being Chris Williamson’s re-admission to the party – when I heard of Jeremy Corbyn’s “No Place for Antisemitism” initiative this weekend, I immediately felt cynicism and distrust. It was to my surprise, then, that after exploring the website, I found a renewed sense of hope. For the first time since 2017, I had been given a reason to think that Labour can be better.Labour has now released statements and materials that actually feel sincere, measured, and compassionate Continue reading...

  22. Shane Lowry wants to stay the same but life will change after Open win | Ewan Murray Irishman’s victory has healed an old wound and resonated way beyond golf’s traditional boundariesOne face has always stood out from a picture on the clubhouse wall at Western Gailes Golf Club. Rory McIlroy’s participation in the 2007 European Amateur Team Championship in Ayrshire, as won by Ireland, came just days before an Open Championship debut at Carnoustie. It was never a case of ‘Whatever happened to Shane Lowry’ but his teammate claimed by far the greater weight of attention before events at Royal Portrush on Sunday. Twelve years and a few heartaches on, Lowry is in possession of the Claret Jug. On that score at least, he now sits 1-1 with McIlroy.There is a glaring dichotomy attached to Lowry’s Open win, which came 48 hours after McIlroy missed the cut at a championship where he was in such sharp focus. McIlroy admitted as much, when posting praise of Lowry on Monday alongside a photo of the duo in their amateur days. “Even though last week wasn’t the week I had envisaged for myself, I couldn’t be happier and more proud of Shane,” McIlroy said. “How he handled everything over the weekend … emotions, nerves and conditions tells you everything I’ve gotten to know about him over the past 15 years. 2019 Champion Golfer of the Year! Enjoy some good stuff out of the Claret Jug!” Continue reading...

  27. There must be a point at which HS2 is just too expensive The CBI and BCC wring their hands at a budget overrun of £30bn – but then keep on insisting it must be builtOne thing as predictable as an increase in the projected cost of building HS2 is the response from business lobby groups. Sure enough, as the high-speed railway was reported last week to be hurtling towards a potential cost overrun of almost £30bn, trade bodies barely paused to consider this astonishing figure and instead insisted that HS2 should be built anyway.To be scrupulously accurate, the CBI nodded to the idea that “taxpayers’ money should always be spent wisely” and that HS2 should “strive” to stay on budget. And the British Chambers of Commerce opined that “no public project should be written a blank cheque”, a notably abstract form of words. Continue reading...

  28. The Guardian view of the new Lib Dem leader: the vision thing | Editorial To wrest the mantle of progressive change from other rivals in Westminster will need Jo Swinson to find her voice and a new set of attractive policies beyond BrexitJo Swinson arrives at probably the best time to be a Liberal Democrat for a decade. In May the party posted a record European election result, attracting both Labour and Conservative voters disaffected by their own parties’ divisions over Brexit. A few weeks earlier local elections saw the party gain hundreds of seats and control of a series of councils in England. The party hovers near the top of the polls. Ms Swinson’s job will be to keep it there.This has been a remarkable turnaround. In 2015, as the Oxford academic Tudor Jones notes in his forthcoming book The Uneven Path of British Liberalism, the Lib Dems suffered an electoral collapse as great as the two great vanishings that the Liberal party managed in the 20th century. What almost finished the Lib Dems off was not just their hand in austerity, but the party’s perceived political irrelevance in the minds of a majority of British voters. If history was any guide, the road back to significance would have been a long one. Continue reading...
