As the Tory Brexit fight club slugs it out, do they even care about Ireland? | Rafael Behr 14 Nov 2017, 2:33pm As the Tory Brexit fight club slugs it out, do they even care about Ireland? | Rafael Behr
Ego-wrestling British cabinet ministers seem willing to risk their neighbours’ hard-won peace and prosperity. And the rest of Europe can see thatThere is no definition of good neighbourliness in foreign affairs. Alliances are fixed by treaties. Regional trade is measured in goods and services. But those things cannot describe the texture of relations between countries, the way adjacent nations rub along together. This quality is as important to Brexit as the technical hooks on which negotiations are currently snagged. No European Union member state wanted the UK to leave, and it is hard for them not to feel aggrieved by Britain’s choices. Theresa May urges Brussels not to take offence. Less emollient leavers say the continentals should get over it and focus on mutual trade (as if their own campaign was some case study in cool rationality).

The Guardian view on the museums review: where’s the cash? | Editorial 14 Nov 2017, 2:28pm The Guardian view on the museums review: where’s the cash? | Editorial
Museums are at the heart of national and local culture. But they have been starved of funding for a decadeThere are obvious things that lend a place its identity: the cathedral or the town hall, or the canal and the old warehouses. And then there are the identifiers that are often overlooked, yet which contain the essence of a locality. The local museum embraces the entirety of a particular human experience. From the Romans – often from earlier times – the marks made by man and woman, their loves and their wars, their beliefs and their work, their idea of beauty and their way of birth and death and all the stages in between are represented in artefacts that have once had meaning to someone who passed through that place. These keepers of the past – from the

Let’s be clear: Muslims are neither good nor bad. We’re just human | Farah Elahi 14 Nov 2017, 1:00am Let’s be clear: Muslims are neither good nor bad. We’re just human | Farah Elahi
Twenty years ago, a report on Islamophobia described how stereotypes harm Muslims in Britain. Today, new research suggests things have got worseWhen I was 13 my school, a Muslim faith school, was advised by the police to close for three days after 9/11 because they feared the students would be at risk and that the school building might be attacked. The sharp increase in hate crimes and attacks in particular on visibly Muslim girls and women indicated that this was a very real risk. But as a child it was very difficult to understand why people would associate a group of schoolchildren with these far-removed global events.
