Speaking to reporters on his visit to Wiltshire, Boris Johnson refused to rule out proroguing parliament a second time if he lost the supreme court case. Asked to rule out this option, he replied:

I have the greatest respect for the judiciary in this country. The best thing I can say at the moment whilst their deliberations are continuing is that obviously I agree very much with the master of the rolls and the lord chief justice and others who found in our favour the other day. I will wait to see what transpires.

Pop's need for speed: 'You have to drop new stuff constantly'

Pop stars are under pressure to produce a continuous stream of new music, with many releasing two albums a year. Whatas behind the explosive pace?

The music industry in 2019, says Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis, could be compared to a Pez dispenser. He is not talking about big heads a rather, the seemingly endless, instantly gratifying stream of new songs that drop each week, like tiny pieces of Pez candy. aIt certainly feels as if thereas more music out there,a he says. aBy virtue of that, a record just feels older quicker; it doesnat have its place in the sun for long, because thereas new canopy growth. Everyoneas trying to get a bit of sunshine.a

Philippakis is among a growing number of artists responding to this fast-moving dynamic by upping the pace of his releases. Foals will release their second album of 2019, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part II, in October (Part I was released in March, and nominated for this yearas Mercury prize).

We live in a time of political fury and hardening cultural divides. But if there is one thing on which virtually everyone is agreed, it is that the news and information we receive is biased. Every second of every day, someone is complaining about bias, in everything from the latest movie reviews to sports commentary to the BBCas coverage of Brexit. These complaints and controversies take up a growing share of public discussion.

Much of the outrage that floods social media, occasionally leaking into opinion columns and broadcast interviews, is not simply a reaction to events themselves, but to the way in which they are reported and framed. The amainstream mediaa is the principal focal point for this anger. Journalists and broadcasters who purport to be neutral are a constant object of scrutiny and derision, whenever they appear to let their personal views slip. The work of journalists involves an increasing amount of unscripted, real-time discussion, which provides an occasionally troubling window into their thinking.

The world-famous college keeps producing leaders who value power more than compassion. Iave seen how that happens

David Cameron publishes his memoirs today, in which he looks back on his time at Eton college; and back on the drug use that, had he been from a different background, might have landed him in jail. Eton is proud of its political leaders. This can be seen from the fact that, in one of its most famous rooms, you can find the bust of every student who has gone on to become prime minister. Eton must ask itself, though, whether it is proud of the kind of leader that it is producing. It must also ponder why, if it truly sees itself as a school of leadership, there are more and more people who regard it and similar institutions as utterly unfit for purpose.

Crime statistics can often be lacklustre and impenetrable, but in recent weeks they have painted a vivid and shocking picture of how our criminal justice system is letting down rape victims at every stage. Todayas new figures, published by the Guardian a which show that thousands of rape allegations have been recorded inaccurately by the police over the last four years a are only the latest evidence that there are serious inconsistencies in how different police forces are handling rape allegations. If reports of rape are being filtered out before any real investigation has taken place, this not only raises huge concerns about how victims are being treated, but increases the risk that rapists are going unpunished, free to rape again.

Bank of England leaves rates on hold but signals that could change in near future

Brexit uncertainty and the slowdown in global growth has weakened the economy and made an interest rate cut more likely, the Bank of England has said.

The central bank said interest rates would remain at 0.75% after a unanimous vote of the monetary policy committee (MPC) on Thursday, but it signalled that further Brexit uncertainty amid a US-China tariff war could warrant a rate cut in the near future.

Yes, it is true that we are more brown and more liberal than some of you, but denying statehood would be unfair no matter who was affectedait would be unfair if we were conservatives from a rural district built around agriculture or an industrial city in the heartland. This is America, and Americans are entitled to equal protection under the law, and thatas why we are demanding statehood.

Tense moment at the D.C. statehood hearing as the Republican witness insists opposition to D.C. statehood is not about race and Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) should withdraw a statement to that effect. "Never," Connolly roars back to applause

Brexit: Parliament could remain suspended even if court finds against PM, government suggests - live news

From https:

Rolling coverage of the dayas political developments as they happen, including the final day of the supreme court hearing to determine if Boris Johnsonas five-week suspension of parliament was lawful

The Scottish government has scrapped one of its headline policies, its controversial anamed persona scheme, only a few days after bowing to opposition demands for an inquiry into two botched hospital projects.

Its sharp reversals in two key areas on which the Scottish National party government was refusing to budge until now suggests the SNP is shoring up its policy programme in preparation for a general election.

Here are the main points from todayas supreme court hearing in the case that will determine whether or not Boris Johnsonas decision to prorogue parliament for five weeks was lawful. Today was the last day of a three-day hearing. You can read Tuesdayas highlights here, and Wednesdayas highlights here and here.

A Queenas speech, and the state opening of parliament which accompanies it, is a significant political, constitutional and ceremonial occasion, which ordinarily involves the sovereign attending in person. As the court will be well aware, the proper preparations for a Queenas speech are a matter of thoroughgoing importance, including in relation to the content of that speech. Extensive arrangements would have to be made, including as to security, to enable this to occur. These considerations lead to the need for any order that the court makes, if necessary, to allow for these steps relating to the earlier meeting of parliament to occur in an orderly fashion.

In my respectful submission, the applicants and the petitioners are inviting the court into forbidden territory and into what is essentially a minefield, an ill-defined minefield that the courts are not - with the greatest of respect - properly equipped to deal with.

I must repeat that this case is not about when and on what terms the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. The result of this case will not determine that. We are solely concerned with the lawfulness of the prime ministeras decision to advise Her Majesty to prorogue parliament on the dates in question.

Pop stars are under pressure to produce a continuous stream of new music, with many releasing two albums a year. Whatas behind the explosive pace?

The music industry in 2019, says Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis, could be compared to a Pez dispenser. He is not talking about big heads a rather, the seemingly endless, instantly gratifying stream of new songs that drop each week, like tiny pieces of Pez candy. aIt certainly feels as if thereas more music out there,a he says. aBy virtue of that, a record just feels older quicker; it doesnat have its place in the sun for long, because thereas new canopy growth. Everyoneas trying to get a bit of sunshine.a

Philippakis is among a growing number of artists responding to this fast-moving dynamic by upping the pace of his releases. Foals will release their second album of 2019, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part II, in October (Part I was released in March, and nominated for this yearas Mercury prize).

The grizzled warrior dusts off his crossbow to take revenge on sex traffickers in a creaking, cringeworthy fifth instalment

This massively enlarged prostate of a film can only make you wince with its badly acted geronto-ultraviolence, its Trumpian fantasies of Mexican rapists and hilariously insecure US border, and its crass enthusiasm for rape-revenge attacks undertaken by a still-got-it senior dude, 73 years young, on behalf of a sweet teenager. The film, co-written by Sylvester Stallone, imagines this demure young woman having her face slashed by an assailant but the field is left clear for a stag payback showdown; there is no question of her taking her own retributive action.

Stalloneas own impassive face, now like a sculpture created by Picasso out of a Firestone tyre, presides enigmatically over the proceedings and his indistinct line readings would not get him very far in rep.

But it does appear to be universally true that in front of every great fortune lies a great crime. Immense wealth translates automatically into immense environmental impacts, regardless of the intentions of those who possess it.

When asked if the scene constituted rape, he said, aYes and no a| There are moments where she gives in, and moments where she pushes him away.a Itas typical of the attitude often taken by film-makers that, if it serves the plot (in this case, to remind us of Jaimeas ruthless streak), then sexual violence is justifiable.

The team were incapable of the basics against PSG and it is a wonder Spanish clubs have not exploited the weaknesses more

As Thomas Meunier and Juan Bernat capered through the open savannah that archaeologists believe was once populated by the Real Madrid midfield, the mind was drawn to another Parisian night two and a half years ago, when Angel Di MarAa orchestrated an even more emphatic victory for Paris Saint-Germain over a Spanish side. As it turned out, that 4-0 win over Barcelona didnat turn out particularly well for PSG but, more generally, what on earth is going on with midfields in La Liga?

On a night when AtlA(c)tico twice conceded goals on the break at home to Juventus, the issue seems particularly acute. Last season the big three Spanish sides leaked three or more in games against Liverpool (Barcelona); CSKA Moscow and Ajax (Real Madrid); and Borussia Dortmund and Juventus (AtlA(c)tico). In each case the major problem was the same: a ponderous midfield being shredded in transition. There had been glimmers of the issue the season before, in Real Madridas defeat at Tottenham and Barcelonaas embarrassing collapse in Rome, which itself had been foreshadowed by the problems theyad had against Chelsea in the previous round.

Emmys 2019 predictions: who will win, and who should win?
Date: Thu, 19 Sep 2019 06:00:29 GMT
From https:

Another competitive year pits old favorites against critically acclaimed upstarts. Will there be a Game of Thrones victory lap? Will Fleabag upset Veep?

The Emmys conversation is dominated, of course, by Game of Thrones, HBOas decade-defining, lavish fantasy epic that wrapped after eight sprawling seasons this spring. Thrones is an Emmys juggernaut a it won for best drama series in its last three eligible seasons (2015, 2016 and 2018) and is nominated for 32 awards this year, the most for any single season of television, ever. (The show already won 10 awards at last weekendas Creative Arts Emmys). The question this year, however, is whether the majority of the 24,000 Emmy voters will still reward Game of Thrones after a divisive, narratively uneven final season. Thatas likely to be the case, especially with traditional rivals such as The Handmaidas Tale, Stranger Things and The Americans no longer in the running. But younger, smaller shows could spoil the victory lap; HBOas other entry, Succession, received five nominations for its critically acclaimed first season, and BBC Americaas Killing Eve could ride a solid second season and the wave of popularity for stars Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge to a win. Other nominees Better Call Saul, Pose, Ozark, This Is Us and Bodyguard all have sizable audiences and, for the most part, critical praise, but probably lack the momentum to topple Westerosi dominance.

The marketing campaign for Hustlers, a film that opened to an unexpectedly impressive $33m at the US box office last weekend, presents the film as a fun, woke, neon-soaked update of Coyote Ugly. But behind the pink-and-blue-hued ads showcasing the stars Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B, lies powerful commentary on the nature of female intimacy, a mass market shell hiding surprisingly incisive feminism.

Itas not about foreign trolls, filter bubbles or fake news. Technology encourages us to believe we can all have first-hand access to the areala facts a and now we canat stop fighting about it. By William Davies

We live in a time of political fury and hardening cultural divides. But if there is one thing on which virtually everyone is agreed, it is that the news and information we receive is biased. Every second of every day, someone is complaining about bias, in everything from the latest movie reviews to sports commentary to the BBCas coverage of Brexit. These complaints and controversies take up a growing share of public discussion.

Much of the outrage that floods social media, occasionally leaking into opinion columns and broadcast interviews, is not simply a reaction to events themselves, but to the way in which they are reported and framed. The amainstream mediaa is the principal focal point for this anger. Journalists and broadcasters who purport to be neutral are a constant object of scrutiny and derision, whenever they appear to let their personal views slip. The work of journalists involves an increasing amount of unscripted, real-time discussion, which provides an occasionally troubling window into their thinking.
