the main stories… …and how they were covered

What happened Corbyn’s campaign Jeremy Corbyn launched Labour’s 2019 general election manifesto last Thursday under the title “It’s Time for Real Change”. Embedded in its 105 pages were a plethora of radical pledges – including a second referendum on Brexit; a 4.3% increase in annual spending on the NHS; a rise in the minimum wage to £10; and the freezing of the state pension age at 66. Labour also promised to nationalise key industries (including energy, water, Royal Mail, railways and broadband); to abolish private schools’ charitable status; to scrap Universal Credit; to give free personal care at home for the over-65s, and free bus travel for the under-25s; and to build 100,000 new council houses each year. On Monday, however, the manifesto was overshadowed when Ephraim Mirvis, Britain’s chief rabbi, declared in…

the week

Great excitement in political circles this week followed the release of the parties’ manifestos – but will any of these documents make the slightest difference to the election? Conventional wisdom holds that manifestos can lose elections (as Theresa May’s is said to have done in 2017), but they rarely win them, because, in the absence of any particularly unpopular policies, they largely pass the public by. It’s a sad fact that more people may have read the spoof story circulating online about Jo Swinson’s supposed secret passion for killing squirrels (see page 4) than have read the Lib Dems’ manifesto. As Daniel Finkelstein noted in The Times last week, few voters have the time or inclination to follow the details of politics. Polls suggest that about half the population has never…

Controversy of the week A modest proposal? Historians will not write about the Tory manifesto of 2019, said The Times. Unveiled on Sunday, the slim prospectus contains “few big ideas and, in truth, not many big policies either”. There are some modest tax cuts, a few boosts for public services, particularly the NHS, and other goodies such as a cut to hospital parking charges and a new fund to fix potholes. But it’s a deliberately cautious document: in all, the Tories are proposing an extra £2.9bn in day-to-day spending by the end of the next parliament, equivalent to just £1 for every £28 pledged by Labour. The Conservatives are desperate to avoid Theresa May’s mistake in the 2017 campaign, said The Economist, when she unveiled an ambitious plan for social care that…

spirit of the age

Only 11% of British adults cook the majority of their meals from scratch, says the remaining 89% mainly rely on takeaways or ready meals. In the past 12 months, one in ten Britons admit to not having cooked at all, and to having relied entirely on takeaways or pre-prepared food. Men are less likely to cook than women: 16% haven’t cooked at all, compared with 5% of women. Lovers of designer clothes can now buy them in digital form: the client chooses a garment online, which is then digitally edited onto their own image – so that they can post photos of themselves on social media in clothes they’d not be able to afford in real life. Dutch digital-fashion house Fabricant is among the pioneers of “digital fashion”.…
