The Guardian view on Boris Johnson and the crown: a clear abuse of power | Editorial 11 Sep 1:48pm The Guardian view on Boris Johnson and the crown: a clear abuse of power | Editorial
A Scottish appeal court ruling exposes quite how little the prime minister can be trusted with the powers of his officeWhen Boris Johnson arrived in Downing Street, he brought with him a reputation for duplicity in matters personal and professional. Only his most credulous cheerleaders expected that to change when he became prime minister.

Adaptation isn’t enough. We’ve got to throw everything at the climate crisis | Fiona Harvey 11 Sep 12:02pm Adaptation isn’t enough. We’ve got to throw everything at the climate crisis | Fiona Harvey
