Judge and jury on the Wiltshire poisonings | Letters 10 Jul 12:58pm Judge and jury on the Wiltshire poisonings | Letters
Like Simon Jenkins, some readers are sceptical about the British government’s accusations against Russia after the use of novichok in the UK – but others think the circumstantial evidence is enough to implicate Vladmir Putin’s regimeSimon Jenkins asks where the evidence is to support the allegation that the Russian state was responsible for the poisonings in Wiltshire (

The murky truth about why women in England can’t have abortions at home 10 Jul 9:31am The murky truth about why women in England can’t have abortions at home
The law that requires women to take the necessary pills in a clinic is a moral hangup based on anti-abortion hysteria The medical abortion – “the abortion pill” – sounds easier than it is. It happens in two stages: first, mifepristone, then, 24 to 48 hours later, misoprostol, which within a few hours will terminate the pregnancy. In the 90s, you went home in between, but you had to stay in the clinic for the duration of the second process, which was all a bit

The fallout from #PlaneBae shows how voyeurism has been normalised | Arwa Mahdawi 10 Jul 7:17am The fallout from #PlaneBae shows how voyeurism has been normalised | Arwa Mahdawi
A woman’s account of two strangers meeting on a flight went viral recently, but it was not her story to share – and those who participated ought to feel guilty about it If a passenger on a plane reclines their seat the moment the flight takes off, it is fair to say they are a terrible person. If they get on a plane, start taking covert pictures of strangers and post said photos to social media in an attempt to create viral content, they are basically Satan’s spawn. If you are asking: “Who would do that?” then good for you! Unlike the rest of us, you do not waste your life on the internet. However, please stand by for this short briefing on

If Trump challenges the US constitutional order, will Kavanaugh defend it? | Lawrence Douglas 10 Jul 1:12am If Trump challenges the US constitutional order, will Kavanaugh defend it? | Lawrence Douglas
There’s more at stake in Kavanaugh’s appointment to the supreme court than the future of abortion rights or affirmative action. See Poland for proof Conservatives are rightly jubilant with Trump’s choice of Brett Kavanaugh – Kenneth Starr protégé, conservative operative and federal appellate judge – to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy in the US supreme court. Had Republicans not obstinately blocked Obama’s own supreme court nominee, Merrick Garland, in 2016, the choice of Kavanaugh would be less consequential. Garland, an eminently qualified centrist, would be concluding his second year as an associate justice on the supreme court. A progressive-centrist majority of Breyer, Kagan, Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Garland would now control the court.

With David Davis and Boris Johnson gone, the cabinet will be stronger | Malcolm Rifkind 10 Jul 1:00am With David Davis and Boris Johnson gone, the cabinet will be stronger | Malcolm Rifkind
Those who resigned were paper tigers. In Dominic Raab we have an intelligent and passionate Brexiteer, and a potential prime minister I am feeling more optimistic than I have for some time that there will be an agreement with the EU on Brexit. The prime minister and a large majority of her cabinet are well aware of the serious and lasting damage that would be done to British industry – at a cost of

It’s now clear: austerity is bad for your health | Dawn Foster 10 Jul 1:00am It’s now clear: austerity is bad for your health | Dawn Foster
Cuts to preventive healthcare have been devastating – especially for the poorest. It feels like the Tories are waging class warMost people pass through the doors of a hospital as a last resort. By the time you reach a bed, you’ve probably made a lot of small-scale decisions that, if they didn’t cause your affliction, may have exacerbated your symptoms. We know exercise usually improves health, that smoking, drinking and eating poorly have all manner of negative fallouts, and that sleeping more and having less stress will improve our quality of life. The majority of us don’t do what’s best for us all the time because life is complicated and busy – and creating excuses is so much easier than getting on with the business of wellbeing.

Will criminalising misogyny be the end of the world as we know it? I hope so | Suzanne Moore 10 Jul 1:00am Will criminalising misogyny be the end of the world as we know it? I hope so | Suzanne Moore
Making misogynistic behaviour a criminal offence is unworkable, but highlighting it – as a trial in the Midlands has done – will cause attitudes to shift We are going to have to start building more prisons. Huge ones for all the men who are going to be banged up for wolf-whistling. (God knows who is going to build them.) The knee-patters will have to be put away. The blokes who say: “Nice legs, want something between them?” when a woman walks past in the street. Sorry, men, that’s just the way it is. All these things you call flirting, “banter” or just showing appreciation will now come with a custodial sentence. This is what will happen if we make misogyny a hate crime. Or you would think so, by some of the outrageous reactions to the idea. In Nottinghamshire, police have been
