The Guardian view on Hong Kong’s extradition protests: an essential stand | Editorial 11 Jun 1:52pm The Guardian view on Hong Kong’s extradition protests: an essential stand | Editorial
Hundreds of thousands have rallied against legal changes that imperil the region’s freedoms. They deserve support, even if China’s leaders are unlikely to shift courseImagine that 5 to 10 million Britons took to the streets to attack new legislation. Imagine that the previously cautious, passive or politically conservative came out, including lawyers and church congregations. Then imagine that – even with further protests pending – the government said they just didn’t understand the issue, and vowed to ram through changes within days. This is what

The Tory contest shows that the Brexiters’ dream is dying before their very eyes | Rafael Behr 11 Jun 1:24pm The Tory contest shows that the Brexiters’ dream is dying before their very eyes | Rafael Behr

Candidates are being judged not by any probability of success in taking the UK out of the EU, but by the ability to comfort fellow Tories that there is life for their party on the other side, once the deed is done. How to get there is a side issue.

Why lilos are moving from the pool to our wardrobes 11 Jun 12:48pm Why lilos are moving from the pool to our wardrobes
From pizza lilos to unicorn rubber rings, novelty inflatables are a festival fixture. But now we’re entering the age of balloon couture It seems to me that 2019’s inflatable culture is a classic millennial story: twenty- and thirtysomethings harking back to their youths, a time when Miss Selfridge was filled with inflatable backpacks and every student house had a blow-up armchair in baby blue or pink. Back in the olden days, the only things available to inflate were lilos, or the odd airbed. Now, shops are full of inflatable things – unicorns and sharks and llamas – all waiting to bob around a pool somewhere. On Instagram, young celebrities always seem to be lounging in blue water in blow-up flamingos or avocados or pizza slices. We are living in an age of literal hot air. Inevitably, inflatables have made it to the catwalk. Like any great fashion trend, it has subtler iterations (indeed, this is how you know it’s a trend, rather than a subversive statement or a nervous breakdown). At the University of Westminster’s MA Menswear show this week, one student,
