the main stories… …and how they were covered

What happened Farage retreats Boris Johnson’s election campaign received a boost this week when Nigel Farage announced that his Brexit Party would not contest any of the 317 seats won by the Tories at the last election. He had previously threatened to field candidates in almost all of Britain’s 650 constituencies, a stance some of his former allies warned could fatally split the Leave vote. Farage said he had changed his mind in response to the PM apparently ruling out the post-Brexit transition period being extended beyond the end of 2020. Johnson welcomed Farage’s move, calling it “arecognition that there’s only one way to get Brexit done, and that’s to vote for the Conservatives”. Rival parties, on the other hand, claimed that Farage’s retreat meant that the Tories were now effectively in partnership…

That we are such a divided nation today must in part be due to the deep but unacknowledged human need to fashion a simple narrative of good and evil out of political complexity. The more complex the issue (think Brexit), the more urgent the need. We may cast the EU as a doughty opponent of populist politics; or we may depict it as the malign subverter of national sovereignty. But we’re not emotionally disposed to entertain the idea it could be both. Or neither. Which may go towards explaining why one of last week’s most remarkable stories – a New York Times exposé of the way the EU fortifies populist leaders through its farm subsidies (see page 15) – has gone by with so little remark.

Controversy of the week Labour loses its deputy Farewell, then, to “the leader of the opposition to the leader of the opposition”, said John Rentoul in The Independent. Since 2015, Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson has been “key to the internal resistance to Jeremy Corbyn”. The Corbynites have the party leadership, the membership and the national executive; many MPs have made their peace with the new order. But “they never had Tom Watson”. The deputy leader did what he could to fight anti-Semitism in the party, to campaign for Remain and to marshal the forces of social democracy. “Capitalism, comrades, is not the enemy,” he told the Labour conference in 2016. But last week, Watson stepped down. His departure was diplomatically managed: he said his reasons for leaving were “personal, not political”,…
