For May, the ‘special relationship’ means craven compliance
A US president with no moral authority flies in to meet a British prime minister with no authority whatsoever. Each seeking legitimacy in the presence of the other, they hail their special relationship like two bald men might brandish a comb. Isolated in their trajectories, belligerent in their rhetoric, incoherent in their policies, they have alienated their allies in pursuit of a brazen nationalism that bodes ill for them and everybody else.

Rudderless and riven by Brexit, the Tories have only one ambition left
On the night of the Brexit referendum Michael Gove went to bed, full of red wine and smoked beef, before the results were in. He had campaigned to leave the European Union, but his main concern that night was that remain might win by anything up to 15 points. He slept soundly.

Beyond the Blade: thank you for reading and supporting our series on knife crime
We have now published the final long read in this award-winning series on the impact of knife crime on young people in Britain and this will be the last Beyond the Blade update for now. We’d like to thank you for following us over this year and a half on this difficult but important subject. It was harrowing to both hear and relate the stories of so many young people whose lives were cut short. But ultimately we feel that by both putting real people behind the statistics and exploring the themes that emerged from their death, the series was a valuable journalistic exercise.
