Theresa May’s Brexit deal solves nothing: open warfare is about to begin | Polly Toynbee 14 Nov 2:46pm Theresa May’s Brexit deal solves nothing: open warfare is about to begin | Polly Toynbee
The Guardian
Number 10 will arm-twist, bribe and cajole MPs. But the prime minister has united her enemies against herAs rumours flew that her Brexiter enemies were calling for her head in no-confidence letters, out she stepped alone. After five gruelling hours convincing her cabinet, a beleaguered prime minister stuck to her friendless deal: sticking is what she does best. Now the arm-twisting, the bribery and the for-the-good-of-the-country cajoling of every last MP begins in earnest. Pinned to the wall, each must finally reveal their true colours; some will be principled, some not: Tories must reckon if the future is with Theresa May and her deal, or with Brextremists in their constituencies. Any Labour would-be defector must reckon whether their local party could ever forgive them for voting to keep this government in power.

Why raising national insurance for the over-40s won’t fix social care | Anne Perkins 14 Nov 5:56am Why raising national insurance for the over-40s won’t fix social care | Anne Perkins
The Guardian
It’s a good idea, but no solution to Britain’s health and social care crisis is possible until they can be accessed on equal terms There have been 12 government papers on paying for social care in England in the past 20 years. Some of them were proposals for more discussion. One or two held out hope of legislation. There have also been five independent commissions – and as for thinktank reports, they are beyond number. Another green paper is in preparation, although its publication date, originally last summer, is becoming uncertain. This is one of the hallmarks of our age: the greater the political complexity of a policy reform and the less the courage of government to confront it, the more words there are, and the less action. The latest chat from the office of Matt Hancock, the health and social care secretary – peak evidence of official reluctance to actually do something about a problem might be its inclusion in the department’s title – is that he has been looking around for ideas and he finds the

Is November’s Sinterklaas festival a vestige of slavery or benign? It’s part of a debate about our culture we simply can’t escapeLast month in the city of Leeuwarden, in the north of the Netherlands, 34 people – mostly men – stood trial, charged with one of the oddest crimes in recent history. The crime had been committed a year earlier. Here are the circumstances: in mid-November, as the tradition has it, Sinterklaas, or Saint Nicholas, was due to arrive in Dokkum, a nearby town in the region of Friesland. Each year children flock to see the Sint (Saint) come off his boat – it’s a highly popular

Stephen Buranyi tells Anushka Asthana how an anti-plastic revolution is under way but the plastics industry is in no mood for retreat. Plus: George Monbiot on why climate change is a crisis that requires a response of civil disobedience Who is really to blame for the crisis in plastic waste across the globe?
