Pakistan: where the daily slaughter of women barely makes the news | Mohammed Hanif 9 May 6:00am Pakistan: where the daily slaughter of women barely makes the news | Mohammed Hanif
The stories of murdered women are recorded with grim regularity in one and half inches of a single newspaper column You can find the news about Pakistan’s war on women buried deep inside the metro pages of Urdu newspapers. I stumbled upon it a few years ago. I noticed that I could pick up my newspaper and almost every day find news about a murdered woman. I thought maybe it’s a coincidence, maybe Karachi is a huge city, these things happen. But it went on and on. It became so routine that I could pick up the paper, open the exact same pages, just like you can bet that you’ll find a crossword or letters to the editor, and it was always there. Names changed, localities changed, the relationship between the murdered and her murderer changed and of course there were minor variations on how she was killed and where the body was found but it was always there: single column, one and a half inches. Often the woman wasn’t even named: she was someone’s sister or mother of four, or the girl who ran away with her lover or the girl who refused to marry a suitor. Sometimes the news made it to the front page of the metro section but for that the murder had to be particularly gruesome, or the killer had killed himself after killing the woman, or the victim was very young, or the murderer killed the children along with the mother. That last one usually ends up on the front page if it’s a slow news day.

Sorry, Emma Thompson, but you’ll never be perfect enough to save the planet | Zoe Williams 6 May 11:08am Sorry, Emma Thompson, but you’ll never be perfect enough to save the planet | Zoe Williams
The actor and climate-change protester has been condemned for flying. Is going off grid the only way to avoid charges of hypocrisy?Hold the front page: Emma Thompson, protester against climate change, scourge of the fossil fuel industry, herself takes aeroplanes. There she was, bold as brass, in a seat, about to burn through rainforests of unknown dimensions with her cross-Atlantic travel, on the cover of the Mail on Sunday. On some level we must have known this all along, since mostly she is in the UK, sometimes she is in the United States, and we know (although sometimes I wonder) she isn’t magic. But still, doesn’t that put the old tin lid on it? What’s the point of it all, when even people who care about the future and believe in science aren’t perfect?

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.

Things and people to hate in 2019: Bros, bacon and the ferry firm with no ferries | Zoe Williams 2 Jan 12:34pm Things and people to hate in 2019: Bros, bacon and the ferry firm with no ferries | Zoe Williams
It’s new year, so our bloated, hungover nation needs some good old hate figures to bind itself together. Here are the frontrunners As the season of goodwill gives way to January purposefulness, we need something other than food to bring us together as a nation. We need people and things to hate. Casual misbehaviour isn’t enough: a person or entity has to offend or solidify some core British value, some sensibility we don’t think other nations share. What makes a great public enemy? You think you can create one by sticking someone on a front page with a target on their face, and the headline “Public Enemy”? It’s not that simple. You can’t just find a public figure with a few atrocious cock-ups on their CV and make their name rhyme with something (see:

There’s no genetic reason women should be disadvantaged in the workplace – unless someone is looking for it In a week of dismaying news, there was a ray of sunshine: a scientific breakthrough with the potential to change lives.

A front page doesn’t have to be broadsheet to have gravitas | Paul Chadwick 23 Sep 2018, 1:46pm A front page doesn’t have to be broadsheet to have gravitas | Paul Chadwick
Conventions of appearance used to be a guide to content. But readers’ feedback has helped shape the Guardian’s evolution A reader recently wrote that on returning to the UK after seeing newspapers abroad he suddenly realised that what disappointed him about the tabloid Guardian was the “lack of dignity” that he perceived in the design and colours of the front page. “In contrast, the front pages of [El] País, Le Monde and the serious German papers are restrained, as befits the high quality of content and journalism within them. But the Guardian is a class paper too, so why conceal this on a front page presumably designed for the masses?”

Haringey council taken over by Momentum? It’s just locals taking back control | Aditya Chakrabortty 12 Dec 2017, 1:00am Haringey council taken over by Momentum? It’s just locals taking back control | Aditya Chakrabortty
This isn’t a hard left plot: Labour members simply opposed a council that handed its assets to private interests and turfed poor people out of their homes I’ve just been reading about the most terrifying place. For weeks, this “toxic” neighbourhood with its “poisonous” atmosphere has been all over the front pages and columns. It’s a land of revolutionary politics, of “ruthless attacks” and “purges”. Hordes of Trotskyists reportedly roam its high streets – like wildebeest, if they only swapped the majesty of the Serengeti for suburban pound shops. It sounds, frankly, dreadful. It also happens to be right next door to where I was born and raised. Indeed, it’s where I’ve spent much of the past year reporting, on exactly the local politics that now jostles news of Meghan and Harry’s engagement on the front page of the Times. Which is how I know that the fantasies generated by the Murdoch papers and others are just those: a purpose-built media onslaught.

Fostering is complex. Lurid headlines stoking fear of Muslims don’t help | Esmat Jeraj 29 Aug 2017, 8:19am Fostering is complex. Lurid headlines stoking fear of Muslims don’t help | Esmat Jeraj
My parents were foster carers for 25 years, and we need more like them. Amid a desperate shortage, the Times’ front page will do more harm than goodI believe that too little time and energy is spent discussing vulnerable children in the care system, or the foster families who perform an invaluable duty on behalf of the state, giving children the opportunity to experience the childhood they deserve and which they may otherwise not have had.

The Guardian view on Philip Hammond: he will take far more than he gives | Editorial 22 Nov 2016, 7:28pm The Guardian view on Philip Hammond: he will take far more than he gives | Editorial
The chancellor unveils his choicest jams for the Jams, but they will be dwarfed by his giant cutsOn any other day, the raft of measures announced by Philip Hammond just after midnight would not be a mere teaser for this afternoon’s autumn statement: they would be the main event itself. A ban on letting-agent fees; an above-inflation jump in the minimum wage; an extra billion for new homes; more cash for families claiming universal credit: any one of these policies would be natural fodder for the front page. Yet here they are all bundled together on one Treasury press release with a few more stocking-fillers for good measure. These follow briefings about an extra billion for new roads, more money for research and development and the latest attempt to roll out superfast broadband. One may wonder how Mr Hammond plans to surprise MPs this afternoon, beyond the revelation of an even bigger black hole in the public finances – caused by Britain leaving the EU, the economy growing slower and tax receipts plummeting. But those aren’t the sort of headlines any chancellor would relish. Nevertheless, this is an exceptional flow of news, especially considering that it comes from a chancellor who claims to dislike big autumn statements. So much for the new politics. In 1947, then-chancellor Hugh Dalton was heading into the chamber to deliver his budget when he blurted out details to an evening paper reporter, on the assumption (it is often said) that it was too late to go to press. The list – “No more on tobacco; a penny on beer; something on dogs and pools but not on horses” and so on – was being sold on the streets 20 minutes before Mr Dalton stood up to speak.

Thinking of retraining as a teacher? Do it. But do your homework first | Claire Soares 22 Nov 2016, 7:11am Thinking of retraining as a teacher? Do it. But do your homework first | Claire Soares
Like the journalist Lucy Kellaway, I made a new career for myself in the classroom. I have no regrets – despite the challengesWhen I left the newsroom for the classroom, my farewell present, in keeping with journalistic tradition, was a personalised spoof front page. The gaggle of foreign correspondents had been Photoshopped into unruly students, graphics compared the holiday entitlement of teachers with reporters, and there were quips about a sudden dive in writing standards in south-east London. Some colleagues applauded me for “getting a proper job”; others clearly couldn’t fathom why I would leave a successful career and venture into the unknown.

20 Oct 2016, 5:04am Two white men in the media lost their jobs. Sound the alarm | Nesrine Malik
A guy from The Now Show and a guy from Autumnwatch have been sort of sacked, but not really. The female job-eating zombies of colour are clearly on the rampageI don’t know about you, but I’ve absolutely had enough of identity politics and people playing the victim when they face setbacks in life. I can’t imagine what it must be like being an employer, unable to make a single human resources decision without wondering whether you’re going to be sued or splashed on the front page of a tabloid for discrimination. Has it not occurred to people that sometimes it’s not about race or gender? The state we’re in, paralysed by political correctness – you just can’t sack a white man these days. No really, that wasn’t some gotcha false equivalence, there is a new middle-brow version of “foreigners are stealing our jobs” – and it’s black and minority ethnic people and women allegedly coming for that most-threatened of species: the white man working in media. As we all know, the media industry in the UK is predominantly populated by people who got there entirely on merit, which somehow seems to have randomly overlapped with the fact that those people are also
