‘This is our last chance to keep the NHS as it was entrusted to us’ 7 Dec 2019, 2:30pm ‘This is our last chance to keep the NHS as it was entrusted to us’
The Labour leader argues that the health service will be sold off piecemeal if the Conservatives are not stopped on Thursday This election is a fight for the survival of our NHS as a free public service that puts patients before profits. Next Thursday, the NHS is on the ballot paper. Millions of people will have a choice about whether to see off the threat posed by Boris Johnson’s Conservatives to their local hospital and GP surgery, already stretched to breaking point by a decade of Tory austerity and privatisation. All of us have the chance to end the intolerable situation where

Redemption defines a civilised society. We must not forsake the idea | Kenan Malik 7 Dec 2019, 2:22pm Updated Redemption defines a civilised society. We must not forsake the idea | Kenan Malik
A blame game followed the London Bridge killings. Now it’s time for cool heads to look at deradicalisationCan terrorists be deradicalised? Do all offenders, even those who commit the most abhorrent of crimes, deserve a second chance? Those two key questions remain at the heart of the case of Usman Khan, the London Bridge killer. In the immediate aftermath of the recent terror attack, and against the background of the election campaign, the debate centred largely on operational issues. Boris Johnson made much of the early release of Khan, which he blamed on the last Labour government. Labour highlighted cuts in the prison and probation services, which, it suggested, had led to a failure of rehabilitation and of monitoring.

Behold, the perfect fake tweet. Look and learn, Putin | Joel Golby 7 Dec 2019, 4:00am Behold, the perfect fake tweet. Look and learn, Putin | Joel Golby
Whoever was behind the ‘Jo Swinson quitting’ tweet struck gold. No wonder politicians were suckered inYou’ve got to feel for Russia, haven’t you? It goes to all that trouble to create sophisticated, deep-fake, under-the-radar misinformation campaigns targeted at the raw heart of both British and US governments, all those gloomy bunker rooms full of hacker nerds, all that money over all those years, and then exactly one (one) Twitter account comes out and says Jo Swinson is quitting before polling day, and everyone just believes and retweets that instead.

The life lessons I learned over breakfast with a Trump supporter | Emma Brockes 7 Dec 2019, 1:00am The life lessons I learned over breakfast with a Trump supporter | Emma Brockes
A chance encounter at the buffet made me wonder if instead of nodding and smiling I should be passionately disagreeingI was in a hotel in a rural part of northern California, asking a man at the breakfast buffet what he thought of Barack Obama. Up to that point, we had been talking, affably, about drug addiction, paganism and the likelihood of a volcano in the area blowing any time soon, before moving on to his enthusiasm for Donald Trump. Now he looked at me suspiciously. The question, he knew, contained an accusation within it, as did my follow-up about Hillary Clinton. “I would love to see a female – a black female! – be president,” he said carefully. “Just not her.” I felt some sympathy for the guy in the hotel, and then – a sign of the times – wondered if this amounted to collaboration
