the main stories… …and how they were covered

What happened The “not him” election Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn went head-to-head on Tuesday in their first TV election debate. A snap poll suggested the clash was effectively a draw. The PM repeated his well-worn pledge to “get Brexit done”, while Corbyn called for an end to austerity and NHS privatisation. Both men attracted some derisive laughter from the audience: in Johnson’s case, it came after he spoke of the importance of being honest; in Corbyn’s, after he insisted he’d been “absolutely clear” about his Brexit stance. Johnson, Corbyn and Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson had earlier lined up to woo big business at the CBI’s annual conference (see page 55). Johnson promised tax breaks for small businesses, but announced a surprise delay to a proposed cut to corporation tax, saying “the…

“I have been a political reporter for almost three decades and have never encountered a senior British politician who lies and fabricates so regularly, so shamelessly and so systematically as Boris Johnson.” This is the conclusion of the conservative journalist Peter Oborne, who is so enraged by the PM’s porkies that he has set up a website, boris-johnson-lies.com, to list them. It’s hard to calibrate political mendacity, given the all-round low standards: we expect politicians to spin, to be economical with the truth, to make empty vows. But few, it’s true, have such a rich history of public whoppers as Johnson, all the way from “I mildly sandpapered something somebody said” (of making up a quote), via ”I have not had an affair with Petronella... it is complete balderdash”, to…

Controversy of the week Labour’s digital dream In the run-up to all three of Labour’s great election victories, the party promised the British public a “bold, exhilarating new future”, said Owen Jones in The Guardian. In 1945, Clement Attlee rallied postwar voters by committing to a “great programme of modernisation”. Two decades on, Harold Wilson vowed to harness the “white heat of technology”. In 1997, Tony Blair offered a vision of a “new Britain”, striding into the new millennium. Now, under Jeremy Corbyn, the party has made asimilarly “audacious” claim, with its pledge to provide free, full-fibre broadband coverage to every UK home and business by 2030. Last week, shadow chancellor John McDonnell said that Labour would nationalise BT’s Openreach, owner of Britain’s creaky broadband network, and create a new state corporation,…

spirit of the age

Psychiatrists have warned that 2.5 million British adults may be addicted to shopping, and suggested that buying-shopping disorder (BSD) be recognised as a mental health condition. In their study of 122 patients who had sought treatment for compulsive shopping, 33% showed signs of addiction to online shopping, which was linked to a “higher severity” of anxiety and depression. Patients, the study said, bought goods mainly “to regulate emotions, for example to get pleasure or relief from negative feelings”. Some 3.5 million British adults aged 20-34 still live with their parents. The figure has risen with house prices. First-time buyers now typically need to save £44,000 for a deposit.…

Honesty, with news that in the past five years, residents of a tiny former pit village in County Durham have handed in to police 12 bundles of cash, each containing around £2,000, after finding them lying around Blackhall Colliery. It’s a mystery who is leaving the cash, or why, but local police officer DC John Forster said he hoped it was some kind of “benefactor”, not a person who is “vulnerable in some way or connected to criminality”. Wild swimmers, after agovernment report found that almost all of England’s 420 bathing beaches now reach minimum standards for clean water, while 71.4% are deemed to be “excellent” (up from 63.6% in 2015).…
