Night that began with flipped car, fires and police in retreat ended with residents bringing water in wheelie bins to douse flames

It had begun as an ordinary Thursday in Harehills, an urban part of east Leeds made up predominantly of dense redbrick back-to-back homes. It was not unusual for police to be called to a disturbance in one of the UKas most deprived wards but what unfolded over the following hours was a scene that nobody had anticipated.

At 5pm, West Yorkshire police had arrived at a residential street to deal with a disturbance seemingly brought on by a row over children from a Roma family being taken into care by social services. A crowd started to gather, tensions were inflamed and the outnumbered officers were forced to retreat. They left behind a police car, which was smashed and flipped on to its side.

Albertas Schloss, London W1: aA stroke of geniusa a restaurant review | Grace Dent on restaurants
Date: Fri, 19 Jul 2024 11:00:06 GMT
From https:

Itas really much, much better than it needs to be, especially this close to Leicester Square

The Bavarian mini-chain Albertas Schloss has finally reached London, where it has opened a 600-cover pleasure palace. The very thought will probably shake earnest foodie readers to their core. Albertas Schloss, you see, is all about fun: noisy, determined, oom-pah-pah fun. It is also about wall-to-wall schnitzel, strudel and currywurst. Eat bacon kroissant royale from 9am and schweinshaxe on a Sunday. Thereas a live house band from 4-7pm every night, followed by a nightly aKunst Cabareta with singalong piano, dancing ladies, DJs and, of course, more oom-pah-pah. So much endless oom-pah-pah, in fact, that never will oneas oom be so triumphantly pah-pahed. No tickets required and, says the website, everyone welcome.

aNo thank you, Mr Schloss,a you might well be thinking while sliding under the bed. aPlease keep your Weimar Republic-themed booze stampede away from me. It sounds noisy and prone to spillages.a Even so, most people Iave met who have visited one of the other Albertas Schlosses in Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham have fond, albeit woozy memories of late nights and perhaps a little too much Erdinger Weissbier, Stiegl-GoldbrA$?u or FrA1/4li beer. They talk of booze, spA$?tzle and fried goods covered in melted Alpine cheese, taken at long benches while sitting next to strangers who only recently became best mates. Nobody ever woke up and thanked God that theyad discovered the rhubarb and custard sour or the quietly lethal and bright blue show bunny, because both of these drinks require you to line your stomach first, perhaps with one of Albertas Schlossas giant pretzels with sweet mustard and pickles. The jalapeA+-o pretzel is the best: a hunk of warm, spicy carbs with a variety of dippy things thatas hard not to love.

The A&E visit was horrific with me overdosing on the gas, and a nasty trip on the ketamine. I had a cast on longer than usual because of how bad it was, then I spent several months doing regular physio to get movement back.

From https:

Downtrodden sitcom assistant Lynn Benfield is the inspiration for a play about a woman who escapes a relationship and starts a band. Its creator explains why its more true-to-life than youad expect

Lynn Benfield, the downtrodden PA to Steve Cooganas unbearable broadcaster Alan Partridge, doesnat always get the recognition she deserves. Most people only know Lynn�by her first name. On TV, she is�always by Alanas side, quietly tolerating his egocentric behaviour. The Plymouth-based playwright Laura�Hortonas new show, Lynn Faces, finally puts her centre stage.

While Lynn rarely voices dissent, her face betrays her true feelings: disgust, bewilderment, discomfort. Horton, a big Partridge fan, always felt an affinity with Lynn and loved these expressions. aYou get moments like thereas something in her waiting to burst out. But sheas so controlled, she never lets it out,a Horton says. aI identify with that enormously, that sort of masking and being afraid to be silly.a She and a�friend would pull their best aLynn facesa to greet each other, and in her 20s she even started a photography project to capture different interpretations of the Lynn face on camera.

Starmer will bin the two-child benefit cap and outdo New Labour on tackling poverty a Iall bet on it | Polly Toynbee
Date: Fri, 19 Jul 2024 09:00:03 GMT
From https:

On the Aylesbury estate in London this week, I met residents who recall the impact Blair had. This government will go even further

I will eat my hat a or several a if Keir Starmer and Rachel Reeves donat soon find the money to bury the pernicious two-child benefit cap. The sum is very small: a mere APS1.7bn to lift 300,000 children out of poverty. With a quarter of children in absolute poverty, nothing else they could buy at that price could do so much; and it would show their intent to return to Labouras ambition to abolish child poverty. In her first budget, expect Reeves to find the funds for this, and other public spending not yet announced. Every child taken out of poverty is an investment in the future.

Labour MPs are right to clamour for this. I doubt thereas a single one on those benches who isnat appalled by the cap: Labour voted with passion against it when it was introduced by the Conservative government in 2017. Some worry that Starmer and Reeves will be deterred by the campaign to force them to pay up, fearing it would signal their willingness to capitulate and splurge on everything else. I donat think theyare that frit, with the markets and everyone that matters backing them. It would demonstrate surefooted self-confidence.

That conversation left me with a bitter taste and, above all, confirmed how desensitised queer Italians have become to the daily discrimination they face.

A record sentence for a Zoom call, arrests for those holding signs outside. This is a blight on British democracy | George Monbiot
Date: Fri, 19 Jul 2024 05:00:31 GMT
From https:

The right to protest is the wellspring of democracy a thatas why Labour must repeal the Toriesa draconian laws

How do you know when protest tactics are working? When governments ban them. The oppressive laws introduced by the previous government a the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act 2022 and the Public Order Act 2023 a are a tick list of effective political engagement. Everything from locking on and digging tunnels to actions on roads, at airports, oil refineries or newspapers, even marching down a street, has been criminalised. Why? Because these methods work. If they didnat, the government wouldnat have bothered.

The Conservatives justified their draconian measures with the claim that they prevented adisruption to the publica. But had they cared about disruption, they would have done all they could to prevent climate breakdown. Nothing is more disruptive than the flickering and eventual collapse of Earth systems. If you believe a few people sitting in the street is a major impediment to traffic, take a look at what a sea surge, a flash flood, a windstorm or a rail-buckling, road-melting, bridge-jamming heat event can do to transport infrastructure.

Tough on elites, tough on the causes of elites: thatas how Starmer can defeat the allure of populism | Andy Beckett

From https:

As the west zigzags between bland centrists and polarising populists, it will take a fiercer response from Labour to halt a creep to the right

There are times when centrism seems shrewd politics. Progressive enough for some lefties, permissive enough for liberals, cautious enough for conservatives and unobtrusive enough for the many voters who want politicians to atread more lightly on your livesa, as Keir Starmer put it in his first prime ministerial speech. After years of turmoil and extremism, a centrist government a whether of the centre left or centre right a can come as a relief.

Centrism can seem inclusive: aWe need to move forward together,a Starmer declared outside No 10. Centrism can seem aunburdened by doctrinea, as he pledged his government would be, instead offering astability and moderationa. And centrism can promise reforms that are modest in scale but cumulatively uplifting: aThe work of change,a he said, abegins immediately.a

In England, the topic of youth development has been high on the agenda of late, not least because one of the key recommendations in Karen Carneyas extensive review into the womenas game was the need for the Football Association to afix the talent pathway to create generation after generation of world-beating Lionessesa.
