A good night’s sleep and breakfast in bed for four | Brief letters 10 Feb 1:26pm A good night’s sleep and breakfast in bed for four | Brief letters
Sleep supplement | Generous portions | Women’s self-examination | Saving money on prescriptions | Wordsearch observation | Best obituaryThe front-page trail for your special supplement (9 February) says “The ultimate guide to a good night’s sleep” alongside a picture of a woman occupying the majority of the bed and the man on the edge. I’m not quite sure whether that shows that the woman is having the benefit of a good night’s sleep because she has most of the bed or that the man might benefit because he’s going to drop off quickly.

Have MPs, finally, come up with a decent Brexit proposal? | Matthew d’Ancona 10 Feb 12:01pm Have MPs, finally, come up with a decent Brexit proposal? | Matthew d’Ancona
With Peter Kyle and Phil Wilson’s scheme for a public vote on May’s deal, there may be a way out of the dreary drama of Brexit It all has the feel of the world’s most boring thriller. Though there are only just under seven weeks left until Britain’s official date of departure from the European Union, public life seems drowsy with a lethal brew of fatalism, insouciance and burrowing cowardice. On the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show this morning,

Why the sickly ugly sisters of our politics deserve to suffer the splits | Andrew Rawnsley 10 Feb 5:00am Why the sickly ugly sisters of our politics deserve to suffer the splits | Andrew Rawnsley
Once broad churches, both the Tory and Labour parties have become increasingly sectarian. Breakaways will be the resultIf they did not exist, would we invent them? Given the chance to start from scratch, would Britain regard the Conservative and Labour parties, the two old and ugly sisters of our politics, as the best we can do? Are they fit for the purpose of representing and reconciling the diversity of opinions in a modern and complex country? And for offering it a choice of decent governments? A growing number of us have been saying not and for a long time. Even before

The reaction to the exposure of the bestselling American author as a serial liar reveals more about our own insecurities than his duplicityWhat’s the difference between something going viral and a storm in a teacup? Not an awful lot, it often seems to me. Last week, everyone in publishing and quite a lot of people in the media were talking – I mean online, although presumably their offices were also ablaze with the subject, indignation rising from their desks like smoke – about a profile in the

Governments, after years of indulgence, are rightly getting tough on social media sitesThe key question to ask when a shocking tragedy comes to light is this: does it signify a scandal or a crisis? Scandals happen all the time in societies. They generate a lot of heat, outrage and public angst. But, eventually, the media caravan moves on and nothing much changes. When in 2011, for example, the

The Observer view: Jeremy Corbyn must honour his party’s pledge 10 Feb 1:00am The Observer view: Jeremy Corbyn must honour his party’s pledge
The Labour party has a duty to speak out for all those alarmed by Theresa May’s strong-arm tactics for the sake of the countryIt is hard to see the wood for the trees, so complex and tortuous has the Brexit endgame become. But stand back for a moment, if you can, and a truly astonishing vista opens up. It is of a Conservative prime minister purposefully threatening the people of Britain with all kinds of catastrophic consequences unless they and their elected representatives pipe down and do what she demands. Day after day, as 29 March approaches, dire warnings proliferate about the disruptive, dangerous impact of the no-deal Brexit that Theresa May refuses to rule out. NHS chiefs say that hospitals could run out of life-saving drugs. Top company directors, the CBI and the Bank of England warn of gathering economic storm clouds. A Brexit emergency “

Both generations can suffer when children never get to leave home | Barbara Ellen 10 Feb 12:59am Both generations can suffer when children never get to leave home | Barbara Ellen
Young people are as desperate as ever to flee the nest, but more and more are trapped by the housing market When I reflect on my misspent youth, which I try not to do too often because I’m not into disaster movies, it’s possible to see that at one point in young adulthood there was a bizarre starburst of energy. This was me heading off for the big city – to be precise, a room in a derelict London squat. Every time someone sneezed, a chunk of ceiling fell down, which continued to be the case in various squats (free) and housing association accommodation (dirt cheap). Looking back, I’m astonished at my determination. Then again, perhaps it was more about desperation. At the risk of sounding all hippy, I needed to be free.

Islamic State has lost its Syrian base, but its threat remainsIf he gets his way, Donald Trump will announce at some point in the coming week that the Islamic State terrorist group has been defeated and its hate-filled caliphate in Syria and Iraq destroyed. This will be the second time the US president has declared victory over the jihadists. When Trump first made the claim, in December, he was sharply contradicted by his own intelligence chiefs and by British ministers. Now he is being more cautious. But his eagerness to
