Harvey Weinstein turned to his vast Rolodex of high-powered friends to try and kill Ronan Farrow's expose detailing his decades of sexual misconduct. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Farrow said that among those Weinstein turned to were Hillary Clinton, the editors of American Media and even his estranged father Woody Allen. The first two went to considerable lengths to try and quash Farrow's reporting, and dossiers detailing allegations of Matt Lauer's sexual misconduct during his time on Today did play a role in NBC killing the story while he was at the network, claims Farrow. Clinton did her best too says Farrow, who recounts being told his 'big story' was a 'concern for us' by the then-presidential hopeful's publicist Nick Merrill. He also claims that the campaign withheld access to Clinton at a time when Farrow was trying to interview her for the foreign policy book he was working on at the time.

It will soon be impossible to criticise the fanatics of Extinction Rebellion. In fact, I will not be at all surprised if, in years to come, I and others face prosecution for having dared to doubt them. Soon we will be sitting in an impoverished, dark country, with a trashed economy, incessant power cuts and dismal standard of living, caused by their dogma. We are like a thirsty man refusing to drink from a tap because of a water shortage, while his local water company leaves hundreds of leaks unrepaired, allowing thousands of gallons to drain away each hour Putting people on trial for warning against this will be one way to keep warm and occupied. So, while I still may, I’ll say that this is one of the nastiest and stupidest outbreaks of intolerant, irrational zealotry since mankind emerged from the Dark Ages.

Dear Bel, I know this problem is all my fault, so people won’t sympathise. I’m 42 and my affair with a married man lasted four years, but recently ended slowly and painfully. Our relationship was platonic at first, but when it finally became physical we were both pleased. But after three years the intimacy tailed off. Meetings always involved a lot of planning and tension — and I knew he had some issues to deal with at work, so I let it be. Thought of the week Miracles occur,If you care to call those spasmodicTricks of radiance miracles. The wait’s begun again,The long wait for the angel,For that rare, random descent.From Black Rook In Rainy Weather by Sylvia Plath (1932-63) One evening he blurted out that he had suddenly found himself unable to ‘perform’. He always said he no longer had sex with his wife . . . so how did he know? I tried to understand the situation. Then several months on he lost his job.
