A mission for journalism in a time of crisis

In a turbulent era, the media must define its values and principles, writes Guardian editor-in-chief Katharine Viner

‘No former period, in the history of our Country, has been marked by the agitation of questions of a more important character than those which are now claiming the attention of the public.” So began the announcement, nearly 200 years ago, of a brand-new newspaper to be published in Manchester, England, which proclaimed that “the spirited discussion of political questions” and “the accurate detail of facts” were “particularly important at this juncture”.

Now we are living through another extraordinary period in history: one defined by dazzling political shocks and the disruptive impact of new technologies in every part of our lives. The public sphere has changed more radically in the past two decades than in the previous two centuries – and news organisations, including this one, have worked hard to adjust.

After the liberation of Mosul, an orgy of killing

In the dying days of the battle of Mosul, Ghaith Abdul-Ahad followed Iraqi soldiers during the last push against Isis. But following their victory, a new wave of savagery was unleashed

One hot and sticky evening in July, in the dying days of the battle for Mosul, a group of Iraqi army officers sat for dinner in a requisitioned civilian house not far from the ruins of the mosque where, three years earlier, the leader of Islamic State had announced the creation of a new caliphate.

At the head of the table sat the commander, large and burly, flanked by his two majors. The rest of the officers were seated according to rank, with the youngest officers placed at the far end. The commander, who was trying to lose weight, had banned his cook from serving meat at mealtimes, but tonight was a special occasion. The day before, his unit had liberated another block of streets in the Old City without suffering any casualties. In celebration, a feast of bread soaked in okra stew, and roasted meat shredded over heaps of rice flavoured with nuts and raisins, was laid out on a white plastic table.

A multimillion-dollar trade in fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls fuelled by a surge in interest from wealthy evangelicals in the US includes a significant number of suspected forgeries, two prominent experts have said.

The haves and have-nots: four cities in crisis

On the surface, Ulaanbaatar, San Francisco, Calais and Jerusalem could not be more different – but for the people squeezed out by political upheaval or prohibitive rents, the urban 21st century looks disturbingly uniform

More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities, but many people are residing in a state of limbo, leading a precarious existence on the margins, excluded from the promises of urban life. The world’s population is on the move more than ever before, driven by conflict and persecution, by the threat of environmental catastrophe and the lure of a better life, but cities simply aren’t prepared to receive their new arrivals.

Over the last two decades, Guardian photographer David Levene has documented the ways that people are living and working in cities around the world, how they make do with the bare minimum of resources to carve out space for themselves and their families in the most precarious of circumstances, and how cities are being polarised into places of haves and have-nots, with the right to the city relentlessly eroded.

The vinyl frontier: why do we keep sending music to outer space?

Sónar festival is beaming cutting-edge dance music to an exoplanet 12 light years from Earth. But can such experiments ever be more than hubris?

What item would you choose to sum up humanity if you were, like Captain James T Kirk of the Starship Enterprise, seeking out new life and new civilisations? A “five items or less” sign from a supermarket, with a note explaining why it should be “fewer”? Maybe a selection of press cuttings about the Greggs sausage roll Jesus controversy, summing up both humanity’s silliness and its capacity for overreaction?

Of course you wouldn’t. You’d do what the Barcelona electronic music festival Sónar has done to mark its 25th anniversary: send out 33 separate 10-second clips of music by electronic artists such as Autechre, Richie Hawtin and Holly Herndon.

From flying slacks to shouts of shame: Janet and Justin’s Super Bowl 2018 imagined

The last time they performed together, it was a disaster. Would it end differently now?

After the notorious ‘wardrobe malfunction’ of 2004’s Super Bowl half-time show, Janet Jackson’s career was decimated, while Justin Timberlake walked off whistling. With the latter recently confirmed for 2018’s ceremony, how might a possible reunion between the pop idols work?

Interstellar object confirmed to be from another solar system

Astronomers have named interstellar asteroid ’Oumuamua and found it to be rich in organic molecules

Astronomers are now certain that the mysterious object detected hurtling past our sun last month is indeed from another solar system. They have named it 1I/2017 U1(’Oumuamua) and believe it could be one of 10,000 others lurking undetected in our cosmic neighbourhood.

The certainty of its extraterrestrial origin comes from an analysis that shows its orbit is almost impossible to achieve from within our solar system.

No one will forget the day it came right for Jana Novotna at Wimbledon

Jana Novotna, who has died at the age of 49, ended her wait for SW19 glory in 1998. Writing in the Guardian that year, Stephen Bierley recalled a famous day

One of the most compelling images in tennis during the closing decade of this century was one born of loss. In the 1993 Wimbledon women’s singles final, and leading 4-1 in the third set, Jana Novotna dramatically crumpled to defeat against Steffi Graf and then, unable to contain her emotions, wept lingeringly on the shoulder of the Duchess of Kent.

Four years later Novotna was on Wimbledon’s Centre Court again, losing in three sets to the 16-year-old Swiss Martina Hingis. No tears this time, but playful resignation masking her disappointment as she snatched the silver rosewater dish away from Hingis and made as if to run off with it.

David Warner fires shots at Ben Stokes as Australian's fitness thrown into doubt
  • Opening batsman says Stokes has let his team and country down
  • Australian suffers neck injury and appearance in first Ashes Test not assured

David Warner has accused Ben Stokes of letting England down through his Ashes absence. But the Australian opener has also seen his own participation in Thursday’s first Test thrown into doubt after suffering a neck injury during the host nation’s penultimate training session.

Warner, so important to Steve Smith’s team given his aggressive approach at the top of the order, suffered the knock when taking a high catch in practice at the Gabba and then aborted his subsequent net after just two balls when unable to get properly aligned at the crease.

3rd over: England 20-1 (Wyatt 10, Sciver 2)

England getting ragged and desperate as Sciver comes to the crease. She sprints for a single driven straight to cover, and would have been well out had the throw hit. There’s another dicey single to the on-side, then Sciver drives straight, beats mid-off, takes two, and is nearly run out again trying for a third. Sent back and dives back in. Chillllll, Winston.

And back goes the pendulum the other way! The left-arm spinner again, Taylor leans back as she drives, and Haynes takes a fine diving catch coming forward.

Eddie Jones turns to Maro Itoje and Chris Robshaw for England openside
• England coach out of options for No7 shirt after Sam Underhill concussion
• Itoje or Robshaw will be given role against Samoa at Twickenham on Saturday

England are considering entrusting their No7 jersey to either Maro Itoje or Chris Robshaw on Saturday in place of Bath’s Sam Underhill, who has been ruled out with concussion. The head coach, Eddie Jones, has previously said he does not see Robshaw as an openside flanker but is running out of specialists before the Test with Samoa on Saturday.

With Underhill stood down after he sustained his second concussion of the autumn, Tom Curry out having dislocated a wrist in training this month and James Haskell exiled from the squad, the other openside candidate currently in Bagshot is Exeter’s Sam Simmonds.

Brighton’s José Izquierdo grabs share of the points from Stoke City

Brighton & Hove Albion twice came from behind to earn a draw at home to Stoke City and extend their unbeaten run to five matches with the home manager, Chris Hughton, grateful his team overcame the referee’s failure to award them a clear first-half penalty.

Pascal Gross and then José Izquierdo replied to goals by Maxim Choupo-Moting and Kurt Zouma to leave both sides with a point on the south coast, on a night when Peter Crouch made history of an altogether different kind.

Aiba’s Wu Ching-kuo steps down amid financial mismanagement allegations
• Wu suspended last month but investigation set to be dropped
• Franco Falcinelli, currentlyAiba’s senior vice-president, to take over

The suspended leader of amateur boxing’s governing body, Aiba, has announced he is stepping down amid allegations of financial mismanagement but remarkably will be named as the organisation’s honorary president.

Wu Ching-kuo’s resignation follows a divisive 11-year reign, characterised by a bitter power struggle in recent times. Last month Aiba’s disciplinary commission voted unanimously to suspend the 70-year-old. He was alleged to have accumulated debt of 15m Swiss francs for the organisation through poor financial management and auditing. He was also accused of trying to depose the members of the executive committee who challenged his leadership.

Liverpool’s sharpened defensive focus faces stern test in Sevilla spotlight

• Jürgen Klopp says it is key match in Champions League campaign so far
• Point would take Reds into knock-out stage if Spartak Moscow lose to Maribor

With Liverpool revelling in what their manager, Jürgen Klopp, calls “the Mo Salah period”, their marked defensive improvement has been overlooked. The changes provoked by a demoralising defeat at Tottenham Hotspur have underpinned an emphatic reaction, however, and face the fiercest examination since Wembley on Tuesday against Sevilla.

Liverpool arrived in Andalusia in punishing form, flushing memories of Spurs out of the system by winning their last four games by an aggregate score of 13-1. A fifth consecutive victory would secure a place in the Champions League knock-out stage with a group game to spare. It would also be a significant statement, given that Sevilla have not lost at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán since 22 November 2016 when they were beaten 3-1 by Juventus. “It has been a really interesting journey in the Champions League so far,” Klopp said. “But this is the game.”

Republic of Ireland’s Cyrus Christie reveals racist abuse after World Cup loss

• Christie says he received abuse on Twitter after defeat by Denmark
• FAI refers posts to Irish police as PFA Ireland condemns abuse

The Republic of Ireland defender Cyrus Christie has revealed that he has received racist abuse on Twitter following his country’s failure to qualify for the World Cup. In a statement posted on social mediaChristie highlighted “a number of racist comments” and said those responsible “do not belong in football or any other sport”.

James McClean drew attention to the issue while speaking at the PFA Ireland awards on Saturday, and the Football Association of Ireland has now referred a number of posts aimed at the defender to police in Ireland. PFA Ireland and the charity Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC) issued a joint statement on Monday night, condemning the abuse and referencing a tweet which they claim “urged him to go to Jamaica and boasted about wanting to lynch him”.

John Stones injury will test Manchester City squad depth, admits Pep Guardiola

• City centre-back out for up to six weeks with hamstring injury
• Eliaquim Mangala to play against Feyenoord in Champions League

Pep Guardiola believes the loss of John Stones will present Manchester City with a tough examination of their title credentials. Stones, whose outstanding form led him to play back-to-back 90-minute games for England against Germany and Brazil, now faces six weeks out with the hamstring injury sustained in the win at Leicester on Saturday.

The return of the captain, Vincent Kompany, after his own lay-off is timely but, given the Belgian’s patchy fitness record, the Premier League leaders appear short of cover in central defence. Nicolás Otamendi is back after a one-game domestic ban but the only other specialist options are Eliaquim Mangala and the largely untried youngster Tosin Adarabioyo.

Insigne runs Napoli show on uplifting Serie A weekend laced with regret | Paolo Bandini

The striker granted just 15 minutes of Italy’s play-off defeat against Sweden continued the scintillating club form that made his omission so controversial

It was a weekend for gallows humour in Italy. “Goals from [Ciro] Immobile and [Lorenzo] Insigne yesterday,” tweeted the wags from Chiamarsi Bomber on Sunday. “So we qualified, right?”

In truth, it will take a lot more than a week for a nation to digest its World Cup play-off defeat to Sweden. Gian Piero Ventura was fired as manager of the Azzurri last week, and the Football Federation president Carlo Tavecchio resigned on Monday amid reports that his support base had crumbled.

Christian Eriksen and Tottenham aim to bounce back at Borussia Dortmund
• Midfielder was on a high after hat-trick fired Denmark to World Cup
• Mauricio Pochettino likely to rotate squad with place in last 16 assured

It was the night when Christian Eriksen made one of the grandest statements of his career. Denmark needed him to perform in the World Cup play-off second leg against the Republic of Ireland – and how he answered the call.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder’s sumptuous hat-trick in Dublin fired a 5-1 win, qualification to the finals in Russia next summer and a wave of superlatives – the most headline-grabbing of which was from his manager, Age Hareide, who described him as one of the top 10 players in the world.

Nolito: ‘Comments hurt you and your family. Being insulted isn’t part of the job’
Nolito, who faces Liverpool with Sevilla on Tuesday, opens up on Pep Guardiola, explains how a joke about the English weather led to all sorts of trouble and reveals who he thinks is the best player at Manchester City

Nolito says he was “joking”, which he often is, as another cheeky grin sweeps across his face and he starts laughing again. “Bloody hell,” he says, which is something he says a lot – or its slightly ruder Spanish equivalent anyway. And then he continues: “But it was for real, eh! I had to give her vitamin D, the poor thing. We’d go outside but the sun just never came out. Even I ended up pale …” A quick glance up and he adds, giggling: “Just like you!” And just like his daughter Lola, aged nine, and one-year-old twins, Lara and Alegría.

Towards the end of his first season in England, by which time he knew it would be his last, the former Manchester City player, now back in Spain with Liverpool’s Champions League opponents Sevilla, said his daughter had changed colour. “She looks like she’s been living in a cave,” he said then. He says now: “It got misinterpreted. It was just a joke, a throwaway line. And it was true: there was no sun and the paediatrician said: ‘Try this …’

Attempted pre-series antagonism at odds to Ashes captains’ styles | Geoff Lemon

Starting with their leaders, Australia and England look like teams that have realised they’re better suited to another way

They look like a couple of nice boys. Wheatfield hair, slightly awkward smiles. Helpful at charity days, polite at press conferences, respectful about others in their field. Not quite with the cherubic aspect they had when beginning their current vocation, but hints of those chubby dimply faces remain.

Steve Smith and Joe Root, Ashes captains, don’t fit the mould. It’s supposed to be all tough guys and hard bastards, sledging and chuntering, flint-eyed glares and “broken fucken arms”. Chappell, Border, Illingworth, Jardine, a legacy built on rough words and wads of brutalised chewing gum.

Barcelona the only winners in Madrid after derby stalemate | Sid Lowe

It is still early in the season but even a draw in the derby was not much use; Madrid and Atlético had to win. Only Barcelona did

FC Barcelona pulled out of Butarque on an angular blue and orange bus that looked like it had been borrowed from a school trip in the 90s a bit before seven on Saturday evening and headed 30 kilometres north up the M40 to the airport at Barajas, their work done. Half of it, anyway. Nearby, just about visible from the terminal, stood the Wanda Metropolitano, where the rest of it was done for them. Not long after Barça had set off, and a couple of hours after Alavés had passed on their way north back up the A1 to Euskadi, Real Madrid embarked upon the shortest journey they’ve undertaken in La Liga, making the 10-minute trip from their HQ at Valdebebas to Atlético’s new home. It was a short trip, but when they returned a little before midnight, broken and bloodied, it felt like a long way back. For Barcelona, it had been a grand day out.

From the Coliseum across to Eleven Lions Avenue – yes, really – and up to Avenida Arcentales, there were three games in Madrid on Saturday and the third of them was the game: Getafe-Alavés at 1pm, Leganés-Barcelona at 4.15pm and then Atlético-Real at 8.45pm. As flight AEA938 climbed into the sky, the first Madrid derby at the Wanda hadn’t yet started and when it landed, just after nine, it hadn’t yet finished. There hadn’t been a goal yet, either – Ángel Correa had missed the game’s best chance after three minutes, Diego Simeone looking like he was fighting back tears on the touchline, and Toni Kroos nudged one wide at the other end, but that was about it – and Barcelona’s players just about had time to get home for the second half. Those that wanted to, that is – and you might be surprised how few footballers bother.

Werder Bremen and showman Max Kruse keep reality from the door | Andy Brassell

Max Kruse’s hat-trick brought relief at the Weserstadion, but questions over the club’s long-term – and even medium-term – plan remain

“It doesn’t matter who scores the goals,” said Max Kruse on Thursday, and it sounded like he believed it. Yet even if it doesn’t quite mean everything, it means a lot. That much was evident after he retired to the bench a few minutes from the end from Werder Bremen’s emphatic 4-0 win over Hannover on Sunday, their first of the season, having hit a hat-trick – his first goals of the season. Kruse goofed around, whooping and pulling faces at the television cameras. The supporters’ relief was palpable. Not just at the result, but at their star forward taking centre stage again.

Kruse reiterated that idea of the collective afterwards, saying he was “even happier about the team’s performance” than he was about his contribution, and the others certainly put in a shift. Nobody in the Bundesliga, for example, ran more than midfielder Maximilian Eggestein’s 13.4km this weekend, with Kicker labelling him the “Kilometer-König”.

The remarkable rise of Amiens, the club with President Macron's magic touch

Two years ago Amiens were playing to sparse crowds in France’s unglamorous third division. On Friday they held their own against Ligue 1 champions Monaco

By Adam White and Eric Devin for Get French Football News

At first glance, Amiens do not seem equipped to be a Ligue 1 club. They have never won a major trophy; this is their first season in the top flight in 116 years; and their pokey Stade de la Licorne would not look out of place in League Two. Nevertheless, their upward trajectory has been close to vertical in recent times. They finished third in the Championnat National, France’s third division, in 2015-16 and earned their second successive promotion 12 months later by finishing as runners up in Ligue 2. Their latest triumph came on Friday night, when they drew 1-1 with the champions Monaco.

France’s third division is a true footballing backwater. Not even considered fully professional, nearly half of the league’s average gates have dropped into the hundreds this season. Unsurprisingly, stories of clubs ascending through the divisions – like Hull City in England or Paderborn in Germany – are rare. Amiens are the archetypal National club, provincial and comparatively sparsely supported.

How China made Victoria's Secret a pawn in its ruthless global game | Paul Mason

The lingerie brand’s star model Gigi Hadid got into trouble over a gaffe that a more seasoned business traveller to China might have anticipated. So what hope for future forays into this repressive state?

As a movie plot, it would work better for Johnny English than James Bond: the lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret saw its launch in China mired in controversy when the People’s Republic refused to issue visas to invited celebrities and journalists. Katy Perry was barred for seemingly supporting the independence of Taiwan, while model Gigi Hadid transgressed by squinting in a way some Chinese people thought was racist, while posing with a fortune cookie that looked like Buddha. Add in China’s standard unpredictability when it comes to issuing press visas and you have loss of face all around.

Britain has become a zombie state. Philip Hammond cannot save it | Polly Toynbee
As civil war rages in the cabinet and the chancellor is undermined by Theresa May, he won’t reverse the damage of austerity

Driverless cars are the chancellor’s vision. He promised to ride one – but yesterday backed off: someone warned him driverlessness was a bad look on budget eve. If he is trying to mimic Harold Wilson’s 1964 “white heat of technology”, it may not be as popular. Few yet yearn for robots on the roads – certainly not the million professional drivers fearful of joining the unemployed, even if Philip Hammond wrongly claimed on Sunday that the unemployed don’t exist.

Charles Manson’s prosaic and ugly life is over. But his loser cult lives on | Suzanne Moore
A man full of violence, rage and manipulation, his fantasy was of race war, and now his warped logic holds sway at the highest levels of US society

Charles Manson is finally dead. There is no resting in peace for such a person. At his trial, Manson told the prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi that he was already dead. He had said previously that he had been dead for 2,000 years, part of the confused allusions he made to being Christ. The terrible murders he committed in 1969 and his courtroom testimony transfixed America. The cult leader was finally starring in his own movie, strutting and fretting his hour upon the stage – a short, long-haired man full of violence, rage and manipulation.

Now, if you care to look on the internet, Manson’s ramblings are memorialised on various websites, like inspirational quotes complete with images. The court could not break him, but then he had been broken and killed many times over many years ago, he claimed. There was some truth in it, although not the whole truth. Never that. These quotes may not be inspirational but they remain influential: the killer as the apotheosis of alienation, a strange object of admiration.

The consensus is clear: there is no upside to a nuclear Brexit | Clare Moody

This government must heed the warnings – leaving the treaty on nuclear energy, safety and research is complicated and the potential consequences disastrous

Cabinet resignations, a government with no majority in the Commons, a make-or break-budget for the chancellor and a fast-approaching Brexit negotiating deadline means it is easy for issues to slip out of the public consciousness. Against this backdrop, Euratom and the UK’s future nuclear safeguarding regime risk being forgotten.

As the nuclear safeguards bill - one of the “Brexit bills” announced in the Queen’s speech – makes its way through the parliamentary process, nuclear experts were called to present evidence to MPs. The message from experts is unequivocal – there is no upside to the UK leaving the Euratom treaty.

Republican tax cuts will hurt Americans. And Democrats will pay the price | Bruce Bartlett

The consequences of the tax program will shelve support for the Republicans, but once in power the Democrats’ hands will be financially bound for years

I think many Democrats and independent political observers are puzzled by the intensity with which Republicans are pursuing their tax cut. It’s not politically popular and may well lead to the party’s defeat in next year’s congressional elections. So why do it?

The answer is that Republicans are pushing the tax cut at breakneck speed precisely because they know they are probably going to lose next year and in 2020 as well. The tax cut, once enacted, however, will bind the hands of Democrats for years to come, forcing them to essentially follow a Republican agenda of deficit reduction and prevent any action on a positive Democratic program. The result will be a steady erosion of support for Democrats that will put Republicans back in power within a few election cycles.

This budget will make things even worse for women and the disadvantaged | Dawn Butler

So much for Theresa May acting on Britain’s ‘burning injustices’. The Tories must U-turn on austerity

• Dawn Butler is shadow minister for women and equalities and Labour MP for Brent Central

Austerity, the Tories’ failed economic project, has hit women and ethnic minority communities the hardest. Today, we say: no more. This week’s budget must not be another veiled attack on marginalised and disadvantaged groups.

The government is well aware of structural and systemic gender and racial inequalities across our society, from discrimination in the workplace, unemployment and underemployment, the gender and racial pay gaps, to the over-representation of black people in the criminal justice system and under-representation of women and people of colour in public life.

How to repair our environment, one species at a time | Patrick Barkham
Bringing back rare beetles and butterflies might sound self-indulgent, but it proves that individuals can make an impact

The swelteringly hot summer of 1976 was the last gasp for the chequered skipper, a dynamic little butterfly that once buzzed along the rides of the ancient royal hunting forest of Rockingham in Northamptonshire.

A budget to increase national debt? That would be a pay rise for Britain | Phil McDuff
Getting rid of deficits is disastrous for economies – as Bill Clinton proved in the 1990s. But don’t expect Philip Hammond to ditch this crazy obsession

Philip Hammond is in a bind as he prepares for the autumn budget. On the one hand, with Theresa May reeling from ministerial resignations and facing rebellion from the right of her party over Brexit, the chancellor is under pressure from his own MPs to ginger the budget horse. On the other hand he is being stalked by John McDonnell’s popular (and sensible) policies. And the only defence Hammond can mount is the increasingly threadbare invocation of the “fiscal rules”, of keeping the deficit low and maintaining “credibility”.

What does Germany’s political crisis mean for Brexit? | Martin Kettle
With coalition talks collapsing, Angela Merkel has problems at home to sort. The idea she could magic a Brexit solution favourable to the UK is simply for the birds

The British political class, like much of the British media, remains foolishly obsessed with America to the exclusion of all other foreign countries. As a result, both refuse to pay consistent attention to German politics, or indeed to the internal politics of any other European country at all. So the news that Angela Merkel may not, after all, continue in office as Germany’s chancellor will have come as a rude shock to many of them.

The British have always blithely assumed that Merkel would somehow ride to the UK’s rescue over Brexit like the Prussians at the battle of Waterloo. David Cameron thought this would happen in the negotiations preceding the referendum in 2015-16. Now Theresa May, and certainly David Davis, seem to have a similar hope over Brexit. It is a foolish error.

These sexual assault scandals are horrific. But they’ve made me feel safer | Sarah Gosling
Like most women, I always knew there were monsters lurking in the shadows. These days men are more likely to believe it – and watch out for them – too

Spacey. Westwick. Hoffman. Seagal. Blaine. CK. Weinstein (Harvey and Bob). Affleck (Casey and Ben). The list goes on. In the past few months, seemingly half of Hollywood and half of government have stood accused. Since the New York Times and the New Yorker exposed Harvey Weinstein’s behaviour, the floodgates have opened as more and more women have felt that finally here was the chance they needed: to make accusations about the wolf without being told they were just crying.

In all the conversations that I’ve had with men about what I’m terming “man-fear”, I’ve heard the same comment time and again: “It can’t be that bad”. Women can’t be scared all the time, can’t be constantly looking over their shoulders, looking out for the next could-be predator about to graze their behind and “accidentally” squeeze while reaching for his drink. Because not all men are like that you see. Well, thanks to this ongoing pile-up of scandals, all’s gone a bit quiet on the “it’s not all men” front.

This government is falling apart, so Labour’s tribes must come together | Zoe Williams
With the great prize in sight, it’s time for Corbynites and their doubters to recognise common ground

The Tories’ main problem with Jeremy Corbyn and the shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, is that they speak human. Critics rush at the opposition like Wile E Coyote, carrying boulders and anvils marked “Maoist cult” (© Tim Farron) and “Marxist radical”, then wonder how McDonnell scuttles behind them with a cheerful “meep meep”. The Labour leadership is not pretending to be moderate, it’s trying to change the definition of moderation. They’re not smuggling ideology into some “common sense”, they’re attempting – with some success – to upend the consensus. In the art of persuasion, there’s nothing quite like believing what you’re saying. It bestows authenticity upon your entire character, makes you memorable in your hobbies and foibles: I can imagine Mr and Mrs McDonnell incompetently sailing together as he described in Sunday’s Observer, and the Corbyns chopping onions. In the domestic lives of the Mays and the Hammonds, I see nothing; empty rooms, polished tables with neat little notes about tax-efficiency schemes.

What would really distinguish it, ahead of an election that cannot be far off, would be to foster generosity and trust

The ‘no unemployment’ chancellor needs a budget of compassion | Matthew d’Ancona
The failing Tories are wrong to see Wednesday’s budget as their saviour. But by showing some humility, Philip Hammond can start the rehabilitation

Like one of those gloomy American highways lined with liquor stores and gun shops, the road this government limps along is distinguished only by a series of last-chance saloons. Since the Conservatives’ disastrous performance in the election, we have been told that the prime minister’s Florence speech on Brexit would restore her authority, unite the party and energise her administration; then the Tory conference in Manchester (cough); and now – most absurdly – Philip Hammond’s budget on Wednesday.

A gold star for the nurseries that have stopped being glitter bugs | Jules Howard
As well as polluting our seas with microplastics, the devilish dandruff turns up all over my house and about my person – I applaud those schools banning it

What will the rocks record about the lives we lead? What might a future palaeontologist, human or otherwise, make of the structures that will come to signify these moments in which you and I live our lives? They will notice extinctions, of course. Fossils of mammals’ tusks and horns will abound in the rocks, only to disappear when we humans turn up. They will come across our mines – enormous trace fossils, perhaps the largest ever to have existed. They will see, by studying fossil pollen, that the climate changed. They will find our discarded KFC bones and they will wonder how the world supported so many chickens. And there, among it all, they will probably find that most awful of human inventions: glitter. Oodles of it – purples, pinks and reds – crushed into rocks the world over. Mineralised madness. Our lowest ebb. What will those future palaeontologists make of it? What will glitter say about us?

Perhaps this is our mark in the geological strata. A post-glitter epoch that all started with a handful of nurseries

Dear chancellor, it's time to end public spending austerity | Gareth Davies

Philip Hammond has little room for manoeuvre on public services, but needs to act on housing and health, as well as letting councils know where they stand

By early afternoon on 22 November, we will know the chancellor’s answers for next year to the two eternal questions of public spending – how big is the pie and which services are getting bigger slices?

On the first question, the evidence from the general election in June and more recent surveys of public opinion suggests that people are noticing the impact of the long squeeze on public spending on the services they and their families use. Public support for further spending cuts in frontline services has reduced even if this means delaying the planned elimination of the annual deficit.

I saw how we failed Bill Clinton's accusers. We can't do that again | Yolanda Wu

When Paula Jones filed suit against Clinton, I was assigned the task of analyzing the merits of her case. Looking back, we could have done much more

In 1998, I was a young lawyer at the Now Legal Defense and Education Fund specializing in sexual harassment law. The US supreme court had just cleared the way for Paula Jones to sue President Clinton, ruling that he was not entitled to immunity from civil litigation for acts committed before he assumed office.

I no longer practice law, but one of the few things I’ve kept in a file is the legal memorandum I wrote assessing Jones’s legal claims against Clinton. I don’t know why I’ve never thrown it away. Maybe the situation never felt resolved to me. Maybe I hoped that the day would come when sexual harassment would be recognized more fully.

It was John Hume, not Sinn Féin, who steered Northern Ireland to peace | Seamus Mallon
Sinn Féin and the DUP have squeezed the hope out of long-suffering people. They should remember Hume’s vision for partnership

A documentary film that premiered in Ireland at the weekend examines the role of the Nobel laureate and former SDLP leader John Hume in seeking to engage the United States in the Northern Ireland peace process.

I was very reluctant to see In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America, and even more reluctant to write about it. My fears were based on previous films about Ireland, which reeked of sentimentality, “old sod” songs and stories, and the dreaded “shamrockery” associated with Ireland in the US. But here we see how skilled practitioners of the art of politics can clearly define their objectives and remain aloof from all distractions that would essentially weaken their resolve.

Trump administration ends program for Haitians who came to US after quake

Temporary residency permit program allowed almost 60,000 citizens to live and work in US following devastation of 2010 earthquake

The Trump administration said Monday that it was ending a temporary residency permit program that has allowed almost 60,000 citizens from Haiti to live and work in the United States since a 2010 powerful earthquake shook the Caribbean country.

The homeland security department said conditions in Haiti have improved significantly, so the benefit will be extended one last time – until July 2019 – to give Haitians time to prepare to return home.

UN urges Saudi Arabia to allow urgent aid supplies into Yemen

Humanitarian coordinator says many more people will die if blockade is not lifted for shipments of medicine and food

UN humanitarian agencies in Yemen have pleaded with Saudi Arabia to permit the delivery of two urgently needed shipments of medicine and food aid blocked outside the port of Hodeidah, warning that the 15-day Saudi-imposed blockade was endangering tens of thousands of lives.

Jamie McGoldrick, the UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, said: “The position is very precarious. One of the aid shipments contains medicine to combat the cholera outbreak, and the other urgently needed food aid including grains and rice.”

Survivors of Sierra Leone mudslide face eviction from emergency shelters

Government help has been slow to reach hundreds of families displaced by the disaster in August, who fear they will have nowhere to go

The government of Sierra Leone has started closing down the emergency camps housing hundreds of families displaced by August’s deadly landslides, despite many people saying they still have nowhere to go.

After heavy rains triggered floods and a landslide in Freetown on 14 August, killing an estimated 1,000 people and displacing three times that number, survivors moved into temporary camps while awaiting permanent resettlement, as promised by the Sierra Leonean government.

'Travesty' trial ends in China with lawyer Jiang Tianyong jailed

Court sentences human rights defender to two years’ prison but his supporters say guilty plea on subversion charges was likely to have been coerced

China has sentenced a prominent civil rights lawyer to two years in prison in a trial that was denounced as political theatre by critics.

Jiang Tianyong, whose past clients include a wide range of activists such as the exiled dissident lawyer Chen Guangcheng, was sentenced on charges of “inciting subversion of state power” in the central city of Changsha on Tuesday morning, after languishing in detention for the past year.

Brexit: Electoral Commission launches inquiry into leave campaign funding

Watchdog has ‘reasonable grounds to suspect offence was committed’ by Vote Leave and student campaigner who received £625,000 from group

Vote Leave is under investigation by the Electoral Commission over whether it breached the £7m EU referendum spending limit, with allegations being made that it channelled funds for a social Brexit media campaign via £625,000 in donations to a student.

The watchdog said that the new information meant it had “reasonable grounds to suspect an offence may have been committed” and said it would examine if the Boris Johnson and Michael Gove-fronted campaign had filed its returns correctly.

Turkish LGBTI activists condemn 'illegal' ban on events in Ankara

Authorities’ move follows ban on a festival of German-language gay films in Turkish capital

Rights groups have condemned as illegal and discriminatory a ban on LGBTI events in the Turkish capital one week after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan described empowering gay people as being “against the values of our nation”.

The Ankara governor’s office said on Sunday night it was imposing a ban on all LGBTI cultural events until further notice, citing threats to “public order” and the fear of “provoking reactions within certain segments of society,” days after it banned a festival on German-language gay films in the capital city.

The ban is the latest in a series of attempts by the ruling Justice and Development (AK) party to curtail the activities of Turkey’s LGBTI rights movement, and to impose what critics say is a public morality rooted in Islam.

Canadian American family on surviving Taliban captivity: 'We tried to make it fun'

Caitlan Coleman and Joshua Boyle used lessons about British history and constellations to help their children after being abducted in Afghanistan

An American woman kidnapped in Afghanistan and held for five years said she and her Canadian husband did all they could to make captivity as fun as possible for their three children, concocting games out of garbage and teaching their eldest son British history to diminish his fears around beheadings.

“We tried to make it fun for them, as best we could,” Caitlan Coleman, 31, told ABC News in an interview released on Monday. “We would just teach them to use things like bottle caps, or bits of cardboard – garbage essentially – but what we could find to play with, tell them these are toys, we can make a game with this.”

Artistic license? Experts doubt Leonardo da Vinci painted $450m Salvator Mundi

It broke the record for the most expensive painting ever sold, but the image of Jesus has come under fire with many doubting its authenticity

After breaking the world record as the most expensive painting ever sold at an auction for $450.3m, Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi is at the heart of a hot debate among critics and historians who question whether this painting on wood of Jesus was ever touched by Leonardo’s brush.

Some say it could have been made by Giovanni Boltraffio, an Italian artist who worked as a pupil in Leonardo’s studio.

Pop culture’s dark obsession with Charles Manson – from Guns N’ Roses to Mad Men

The cult leader has inspired thoughtful works of art and literary novels but is more often used as a hackneyed shortcut to outrage. Why the fascination with a white supremacist and misogynist who masterminded the murder of seven people?

Charles Manson dies aged 83 | Obituary | Opinion: Suzanne Moore

There is a certain grim irony in the fact that Charles Manson’s trial and conviction on seven counts of first-degree murder got him what he wanted. He finished up on the front of Rolling Stone magazine, a cover apparently designed to make him look exactly like the rock star he had always dreamed about becoming. His music got a wider audience. Before the trial was over, Manson’s debut album had been released, albeit on a tiny label set up expressly for the purpose by his friend, record producer Phil Kaufman, rather than one of the major companies he had courted in the late 60s.

That was an era when Neil Young attempted to interest Warner Bros Records in Manson’s “unbelievable” music; an offshoot of MCA had been sufficiently interested to pay for Manson to record some demos; and Dennis Wilson had mooted him as a potential artist for the Beach Boys’ own label Brother, successfully lobbying the band to record one of his songs, Cease to Exist, under the title Never Learn Not to Love. And the Beatles, with whom he was obsessed, finally heard about him. “I don’t know what I thought when it happened. I just think a lot of the things he says are true,” said John Lennon when an interviewer brought up Manson’s name. “That he’s a child of the state, made by us. That he took their children in when nobody else would … But of course he’s cracked, all right … he’s barmy.”

Bananarama: how we made Robert De Niro's Waiting

‘De Niro knocked on the window of the bar, wearing a bobble hat and glasses. We just thought: who is that?’

Our plan was to do something like Grace Jones’s Pull Up to the Bumper. But somehow we ended up with a song based on a fantasy common to a lot of young girls: falling in love with a star, having their poster on their wall – and escaping into a world that’s so much easier to deal with than a real relationship. The line about walking in the park and “people are staring and following me” reflected an uglier stalking side to the fantasy. The date-rape notion was Siobhan’s idea, possibly from something we’d read in a newspaper.

Mandatory balaclavas and posh nibbles: Pussy Riot pop-up is the worst kind of misery-porn

Two members of Pussy Riot were in London to tell their story in opposing ways. One felt pointless and cynical, the other powerful and exhilarating

Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina were both in London last week, albeit on opposite sides of the capital. Pussy Riot’s feted figureheads were in town to stage different live retellings of how their Russian performance art collective became a cause celebre in 2012, when a 35-second guerrilla punk gig in Moscow Cathedral earned Tolokonnikova, Alyokhina and fellow performer Yekaterina Samutsevich two-year prison sentences for “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred”.

Female sex tech pioneers are turning pleasure into empowerment

Women are founding startups to design sex toys and wearables that appeal to female sensuality and increase representation in the tech industry

The percentage of female leaders working in technology is notoriously low and the sex tech industry fares no better. But there has been a surge in the number of sex tech businesses founded by women in recent years – so much so that 2017 has been hailed the year of the ‘vagina-nomics’ by the intelligence agency JWT. But how is the rise of female sex tech disrupting the industry and empowering women?

For years sex toys have largely been designed around the idea that they can only be effective for women if they’re penis-shaped.

‘For us, the land is sacred’: on the road with the defenders of the world’s forests
A busload of indigenous leaders have been crossing Europe to highlight their cause before the start of UN climate talks in Bonn

Of the many thousands of participants at the Bonn climate conference which begins on 6 November, there will arguably be none who come with as much hope, courage and anger as the busload of indigenous leaders who have been criss-crossing Europe over the past two weeks, on their way to the former German capital.

The 20 activists on the tour represent forest communities that have been marginalised over centuries but are now increasingly recognised as important actors against climate change through their protection of carbon sinks.

Battle for the mother land: indigenous people of Colombia fighting for their lands

The 50-year civil war is over but, in the Cauca Valley, indigenous communities are on frontline of fight against drug gangs, riot police and deforestation

In pictures: Colombia’s land battles shatter the peace in Cauca Valley

A green-and-red flag flies over a cluster of bamboo and tarpaulin tents on the frontline of an increasingly deadly struggle for land and the environment in Colombia’s Cauca Valley.

It is the banner for what indigenous activists are calling the “liberation of Mother Earth”, a movement to reclaim ancestral land from sugar plantations, farms and tourist resorts that has gained momentum in the vacuum left by last year’s peace accord between the government and the leftwing guerrillas who once dominated the region – ending, in turn, the world’s longest-running civil war.

'The threats continue?’: murder of retired couple chills fellow activists in Turkey

Cedar branches whisper in the Anatolian breeze. Twigs crunch underfoot. A truck rumbles from a distant marble quarry. The crack of a hunter’s rifle echoes through the forest.

The sounds of tranquility and violence intermingle at the remote hillside home of Aysin and Ali Büyüknohutçu, the Turkish beekeepers and environmental defenders whose murder in Finike earlier this year has sent a chill through the country’s conservation movement.

‘We lost a great leader’: Berta Cáceres still inspires as murder case takes fresh twist | Liz Ford

As friends and followers of the late Honduran activist continue her battle for indigenous land rights, their cause has been boosted by a damning legal report

María Santos Domínguez heard about the death of her good friend Berta Cáceres on the radio. She had just given birth to her youngest daughter, so she wasn’t with Cáceres the week she was murdered.

“It was a double blow because we were very close, we worked together in the communities,” said Santos Domínguez, a coordinator for the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organisations of Honduras (Copinh), the organisation Cáceres co-founded 24 years ago to stop the state selling off the country’s ancestral lands to multinational companies.

Two demonstrators died and others were left with serious injuries following the confrontations which lasted for several days during May 2012 on a remote hillside in the Andes, the court has been told.

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

The number of people killed this year while defending their community’s land, natural resources or wildlife has passed 150 – meaning 2017 is on course to be the deadliest year on record.

Environmental activists, wildlife rangers and indigenous leaders are locked in fierce conflicts with mining, logging and agricultural companies in hundreds of places around the world. The Guardian is working with watchdog Global Witness to record all the deaths in 2017, and this week that figure reached 153 with a spate of killings across three continents.

Protect indigenous people to help fight climate change, says UN rapporteur

Bye bye Batman: is it time for Ben Affleck to bow out as the caped crusader?

Justice League’s weak box office performance spotlights Affleck’s tricky position – whether to limp on, or join the order of failed dark knights

If there is a “Batman curse” affecting those who have pulled on the cape and cowl on the big screen, it is not always a lasting one. George Clooney recovered from portraying a detested version of Gotham’s dark knight for Joel Schumacher in 1997’s Batman & Robin to become one of Hollywood’s most celebrated actors and film-makers. Christian Bale is rarely out of the awards season spotlight for long, and Michael Keaton is currently experiencing a gilded career revival that has even seen him return to superhero movies.

It would be fair to say, however, that the role can be something of a poisoned chalice. Clooney was perhaps fortunate to recover from the critical drubbing handed to Schumacher’s film (his co-star Chris O’Donnell never really did) and Val Kilmer’s career certainly hit the skids after he took the lead role in 1995’s Batman Forever. Both actors were unfortunate to have been cast as Batman while Warner Bros encouraged Schumacher to indulge his penchant for kitsch and camp as a reaction to Tim Burton’s gothic take on the caped crusader in 1989’s Batman and 1992 sequel Batman Returns.

Russell Simmons accused of sexual assault alongside Brett Ratner

Russell Simmons, the hip-hop mogul who co-founded Def Jam Recordings, has been accused of sexual assault amid new accusations against the Hollywood film producer and director Brett Ratner.

Model Keri Claussen Khalighi alleges that in 1991, when she was 17, she was invited by Simmons and Ratner to Simmons’ apartment to look at a music video the pair were working on. She says that Simmons tore off her clothes and attempted to force her to have sex. “I fought it wildly,” she told the LA Times, saying she eventually “acquiesced”.

Anna Jones’s recipes for baked onions and crispy shallots

Cheap, readily available and infinitely adaptable, onions are the starting point for a multitude of dishes. But buttered and baked or fried to a crisp, the humble onion is more than able to steal the show

Onions are arguably the stars of the kitchen. They are cheap, readily available and crucial for laying the foundations of so many dishes, across countless cooking cultures.

Few good dishes I cook start without an onion, and I love how they can be taken to both ends of the flavour spectrum, from bracingly pickled to sweetly slow-cooked, almost caramel in texture.
