The Observer view on the 2019 election campaigns: bare-faced lies are undermining trust in democracy | Observer editorial
The more the truth falls by the wayside the less incentive there is for parties to give voters properly costed policiesDemocracy relies on accurate information. If voters are subjected to a cacophony of political claims between which it is almost impossible to sift fact from fiction, how can they be said to have made a meaningful choice? This is why the proliferation of “fake news” – false, fabricated or deliberately misleading information – poses such an existential threat to the legitimacy of the democratic process.This election campaign is highlighting the extent to which it is not just shadowy players in the background who are involved in spreading fake news. It is increasingly something that certain politicians, in particular, the Tory party under Boris Johnson, are themselves creating and propagating in an effort to discredit their rivals.

The ‘rough sex’ defence plea is growing. It’s a worrying trend | Barbara Ellen
When a woman engages in consensual sex with another adult, it does not mean she has a death wishIt’s good to see that John Broadhurst has lost his appeal to have reduced the sentence of three years and eight months he was given for the manslaughter by negligence of his partner, Natalie Connolly. Connolly suffered 40 separate injuries, including serious internal trauma, and died as she lay at the bottom of stairs.This case was also notable for being part of what appears to be a growing legal trend for “rough sex” being used as part of a defence plea. Generally, it is claimed that the female victims demand consensual rough sex, dying accidentally as a result. It’s happening in the ongoing, harrowing Grace Millane case in Auckland, where the accused claims that the backpacking British 21-year-old asked to be choked during sex. Continue reading...

Our roof terrace garden is a calm, healing space | Allan Jenkins

RAF Museum in row over children’s exhibition’s link to arms giant
Critics claim interactive maths show promotes missile manufacturerOne of the country’s most prestigious military museums is at the centre of a row over its decision to host an exhibition for young children which promotes an arms giant whose missiles are being used in Yemen. The RAF Museum in north London has been criticised for hosting MathsAlive!, an immersive interactive exhibit aimed at children aged seven and over that is presented by Raytheon, the world’s third largest arms manufacturer.Many organisations, including the UN and Amnesty International, allege that Saudi-led forces are bombing civilian targets in Yemen, in breach of human rights laws. Paveway II and Paveway IV missiles – manufactured by Raytheon – are being used extensively in the campaign, which has become a major humanitarian disaster with thousands killed and millions left struggling to obtain food and medical care.

There’s more to Spanish wine than rioja | David Williams
Three great red wines from Ribera del Duero, a sometime challenger to Rioja for Spain’s best tempranillo red winesCillar de Silos Crianza, Ribera del Duero, Spain 2016 (£23, bbr.com) Rioja is the big name in Spanish wine, no question. Bottles from the northern region account for around half of all the money the British spend on Spanish wine each year, and its traditional stylistic template of oaky mellowness still shapes what many of us expect from the country’s red wines. The most coveted Spanish wine bodega of all, however, is not in Rioja. That credit belongs – as it has done for around 150 years – to Vega Sicilia, a single estate in Ribera del Duero to the west of Rioja, whose trio of superb ageworthy reds, but particularly Unico and Reserva Especial, attract top-Bordeaux (three and four-figure) prices. Until recently, the fame of Vega Sicilia dwarfed that of the region itself; but over the past 30 years, Ribera has emerged as a real challenger to the Rioja hegemony, thanks to wines ofdepth and silky polish, such as Cilar de Silos’ immaculate crianza.Bodega de Bardos Romantica Crianza, Ribera del Duero, Spain 2016 (from £13.50, nickollsandperks.co.uk; cambridgewine.com; henningswine.co.uk; woodwinters.com) What makes comparisons between Ribera del Duero and Rioja irresistible is that both regions are dominated by the same grape variety: tempranillo, (or tinto fino or tinta del país as the Ribera del Duero variant is known). The big difference is that the vineyards in the upper valley of the Duero River (which flows down to Portugal where it changes its name to Douro, and supports another great wine region near Porto) are at a much higher altitude (around 800m above sea level) than in Rioja (which tops out around 500m). What that tends to mean in practice is a short growing season where the very hot days are matched by very cool nights, leading to wines that tend to be more intense in colour, dark fruit (mulberry and blackberry) flavour and tannin, but with a balancing, focusing freshness, all qualities very much in evidence in Bardos’ Romantica.

I love my son more than my daughter, but don’t know why | Dear Mariella
It’s important to find the reasons, says Mariella Frostrup. Look back to when you were pregnant or soon after your daughter was born for cluesThe dilemma I’m a mother to a girl (four) and a boy (two) and I love my son more than my daughter. I know it’s common to love one child more than another, but what bothers me is that my daughter isn’t loved as much as she deserves, and not nearly as much as I would like to love her. I do feel love for her, I’m protective of her and her happiness, and her health and wellbeing are so important to me, but something is missing and I don’t know how to achieve it, or why it’s happened. When she was born, it took me several weeks to make a meaningful emotional connection with her – unlike with her brother, where it formed as soon as he was put in my arms. I feel like the nature of my relationship with both of them was forever formed right there and then. I hope that I’m wrong. It makes me feel guilty. She’s a wonderful, kind, intelligent and funny girl that I want to love, but something is blocking my feelings towards her. It breaks my heart. I make an effort to spend one-on-one quality time with her, which we enjoy, but it doesn’t help.Mariella replies Bravo for your honesty. It’s not easy to accept that your feelings for your children differ and it’s equally challenging to admit it publicly in these censorious times – not that you have anything to be ashamed of. As you say, there are plenty of parents with similar qualms. I remember, before my second child was born, being terrified I wouldn’t have enough room in my heart for another baby, that somehow my daughter had used up all my emotional bandwidth. When I first laid eyes on my son and found my heart had expanded in that instant to encompass him I was surprised, relieved and reminded that biology is a miraculous thing. Continue reading...

Live Seafood, Manchester: ‘A parade of the best and freshest Chinese dishes’ – restaurant review

Seafood prices vary depending upon choices and weight, but roughly £10-£25This week’s restaurant is not a secret.

That doesn’t stop Live Seafood being obscure. And utterly, delightfully nuts.

From the archive: the inside story of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s rise to power
In 1991 the Observer Magazine’s cover story provided a unique blend of muscle, ambition and Nietzschean philosophyThe Observer Magazine cover story of 10 November 1991 is an extract from George Butler’s ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger – A Portrait.’ This was around the time of Total Recall and Terminator 2 and, arguably, the peak of his film career. The main thing that comes across is Schwarzenegger’s obsession with his image and how he controls it, and the implied insecurity.When they travel to Austria to meet Arnie’s mother, Aurelia, Schwarzenegger refuses to allow a picture outside her old house. He wants us to see the big new house he has bought her instead. Aurelia tells us that, at 14, he would sneak out while his father was asleep, hitchhike to a football stadium and lift barbells, only returning home for a few hours’ sleep. If he was locked out, he’d sleep in the barn. Continue reading...

Uncertainty, inequality, fragility: why France is a country at war with itself | Andrew Hussey
The gilets jaunes erupted exactly a year ago. To understand them, we need to see the movement in the context of 2015’s tumultuous eventsThe year 2015 was without doubt one of the worst in living memory in France. It began on 7 January with the massacre at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Two days later, four people were killed in an Islamist attack on a Jewish supermarket in Montrouge, just south of Paris. The year ended with mass slaughter on 13 November when Islamist gunmen and suicide bombers attacked the Bataclan concert hall, killing 130 people and injuring many more. By the end of 2015, France appeared to have slipped into a deep trauma that is not yet over.Four years on, quiet commemorations of the 13 November attacks were held once again across Paris, led by the city’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, and the interior minister, Christophe Castaner. But official ceremonies can never tell the real story of how people feel. Certainly, the atmosphere last week in my neighbourhood of Pernety, a mile or so from Montrouge, was muted.
