Politicians love to hate them, until they show a result that suits. Journalists caution against reading too much into them, but can easily be tempted to take them seriously. No wonder, then, that the voting public can easily be bemused by the endless supply of election opinion polls: that appear to show one thing and yet have little clear bearing on the final result. As the general election campaign gets under way, and with the so-called “horse race” attracting enormous interest, the Guardian is launching its “polling station” coverage – not adding to the noise that the polls produce, but helping you pick out the parts that are useful. What do the polls actually measure? Pollsters ask the public a range of questions, but in the end one counts above all, traditionally: “If there were a general election tomorrow, which party would you vote for?” Their samples are representative of the population but cover Great Britain only – with Northern … [Read more...] about Election 2019: a guide to what the polls mean – and what they don’t
After two successful solo outings and three team-up films in which he stood alongside The Avengers, your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man appears to be swinging out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.In news that has stunned and dismayed comic book fans, Sony has confirmed discussions with Marvel-owner Disney have reached an impasse, meaning a deal that allowed the wall-crawler to appear in films starring the likes of Iron Man and Captain America is now dead.Having one of the most recognisable superheroes in the world removed from the biggest franchise in box office history seems like an odd move, but the relationship between Peter Parker and the big screen is far from straightforward, with negotiations complex enough to warrant their own Brexit backstop.Why is Sony even involved in the making of Spider-Man films?Spider-Man is the most beloved character in the Marvel pantheon, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1962.

Where are you from? No, where are you really from? No, seriously though, where are your parents from? People of colour have been asked this intrusive sequence of questions for decades now, by a stranger, out of nowhere. And that stranger does not understand why you find it intrusive. If a friend asked, or if someone asked within the context of a conversation, I’d be happy to talk about my dad being born in Kenya or which village in Gujarat my grandparents are from or how my mum ended up in Keighley. However, usually, the person asking the question isn’t asking for anthropology’s sake. They’re asking because you look foreign and they want to know how foreign you are. Thus begins Afua Hirsch’s book, Brit(ish), where she looks to answer for herself, on her own terms, where she is from, where she is really from. Brit(ish) is a book that seeks to explore what Britishness looks like to a mixed-race child of immigrants who was born in this country. The UK saw a … [Read more...] about Brit(ish) review – what does it mean to be black and British now?
Nigel Farage has just delivered a huge boost to the Tories. By standing down his Brexit Party candidates in all 317 seats held by the Conservatives, he has paved the way for a powerful victory for Boris Johnson. Labour, already reeling from dismal poll ratings and charges of toxic radicalism, will be in despair at this move. Their high hopes of a damaging split in the Tory heartlands have turned to ashes. Going into the next month of full campaigning, Boris’s party is now a far more formidable electoral force that it was before Farage’s climbdown.The decision to make a partial withdrawal from the battle must have been an extremely difficult decision for Farage. A proud man, he has done more for the cause of British independence than any other British politician. Not only was he one of the chief architects of the Leave triumph in 2016, but he led his newly created Brexit Party to a resounding win in the European Elections this year. But the step he announced today is … [Read more...] about Nigel Farage has given Boris a big leg-up – but his Brexit candidates could mean Tories fall at the Red Wall
