When it comes to Germany, there’s method in Trump’s madness | Alan Posener 19 Jun 9:20am When it comes to Germany, there’s method in Trump’s madness | Alan Posener

It’s official – yoga makes you smug. I think I’ll stick to being lazy | Nell Frizzell 19 Jun 9:18am It’s official – yoga makes you smug. I think I’ll stick to being lazy | Nell Frizzell
Thank you, scientists. The news that yoga can be bad for the ego has reinforced my commitment to not botheringMy problem, if I could be said to have any at all, is that I’m simply too humble to do yoga. I’m too selfless for meditation; too modest for any kind of spiritual practice. I suppose if I was absolutely pushed – and, really, who would try to push anyone as evidently grounded as me – I would say that I am too self-effacing to try any kind of regular “practice” at all. In news that will shake goat shacks, hatha studios and rush matting salespeople across the land, a

Why won’t ministers come clean about the impact of cuts on disabled people? | Frances Ryan 19 Jun 7:00am Why won’t ministers come clean about the impact of cuts on disabled people? | Frances Ryan
Being hit by the bedroom tax is bad enough, but losing your sickness benefits too is even harderBack in 2014, armed with only a laptop and phone, disabled campaigners started a hunt for the truth. As policies including the bedroom tax, the abolition of disability living allowance, and the rollout of controversial out-of-work sickness benefits hit,

Like many gay Muslim people, I have no faith in Pride | Amrou al-Kadhi 19 Jun 4:19am Like many gay Muslim people, I have no faith in Pride | Amrou al-Kadhi
The London march is being hollowed out by corporations, and its militant secularism excludes people of faithThroughout June – London Pride month – corporations around the city will boast of their allegiance to the LGBT community. Walk into a Wagamama, and rainbow flags are intended to show solidarity with LGBT citizens. Barclays, Pride in London’s main sponsor, declares its support in the guise of a temporary rainbow filter on its website logo. What udon noodles and contactless payment have ever done to end homophobia will forever remain a mystery. On the surface, London Pride celebrates the city as a place of LGBT equality. But this external display of inclusion belies a core that is routed in exclusion. Once a political protest, Pride has been commodified into a business arena cashing in on “the pink pound”. It’s hard to think of a major corporation that doesn’t have a float at the parade, with everyone from PlayStation to Costa broadcasting their dedication to LGBT customers. The relationship between gay equality and good business even dominates Pride in London’s blog forum.

As the Brexit shambles shows, May needs to learn how to do diplomacy | Rafael Behr 19 Jun 1:00am As the Brexit shambles shows, May needs to learn how to do diplomacy | Rafael Behr
Anyone who valued this vital art wouldn’t have made Boris Johnson foreign secretary One reason to imagine that Theresa May has hidden depths is that the thought of the country’s future depending on the visible portion of her ability is so alarming. These are unsettled times, so there is comfort in the idea of a prime minister with a plan – any plan. There is a psychological incentive to suppose that May thinks beyond the end of the day; that her strategy for Brexit is more sophisticated than it looks. Because it looks like
