Francis Fukuyama: ‘Trump instinctively picks racial themes to drive people on the left crazy’ | Books | The Guardian

Met police dropped 30,000 criminal investigations in first 24 hours last year | UK news | The Guardian
Sexual assaults and arson are among the crimes that are being ‘screened out’ within a day of being reported [...] Screening out is the process whereby the Met decides which offences to stop investigating after a primary assessment. In October 2017, in a move denounced as a “green light to thieve”, the Met said it would screen out more investigations, saying that it would end investigations into many reports of crimes, including burglaries, thefts and assaults, where there was judged to be little prospect of identifying a suspect. The force said the step was necessary to balance the books. // &! https://www.theguardian.com/law/2018/sep/09/miscarriage-of-justice-bodys-funding-cuts-criticised-as-workload-grows - Miscarriage of justice body's funding cuts criticised as workload grows Cuts having severe impact on work of Criminal Cases Review Commission, critics say

Universal credit could be sunk by next stage of rollout, say experts | Society | The Guardian
The Resolution Foundation estimates that 1.8 million working families will see their incomes drop when they move onto the new system. [...] Campaigners fear that the abrupt nature of the migration – claimants will be sent a letter giving them three months to apply for universal credit before their current benefits are cancelled – will see many vulnerable people fall out of the benefits system.

The Guardian view on public services: the state has abandoned its responsibilities | Editorial | Opinion | The Guardian
Cuts have led to chaos and failure in the justice and benefits systems, and vulnerable people including children are the victims [...] Meanwhile, mounting chaos in the justice system is finally attracting public attention. Last month the government stripped the private contractor G4S of responsibility for Birmingham prison, admitting that officers there had effectively lost control. This followed an announcement that the partial privatisation of probation services has failed and will be reversed. This week MPs debated a review of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act amid rising concerns over the impact of legal aid cuts, including the phenomenon of “advice deserts” in parts of the country where services have virtually ceased to exist. A growing sense of crisis in the courts themselves is ably documented in the new eponymous book by the Secret Barrister.

Now council leaders are warning that children’s services face a tipping point, with 90 children entering care every day but repeated appeals for additional funding from the Treasury rejected.

The end of Atlanticism: has Trump killed the ideology that won the cold war? | News | The Guardian
"special relationship" - The foreign policy establishment has been lamenting its death for half a century. But Atlanticism has long been a convenient myth // Atlanticism has never had a very stable meaning. For one thing, the US and Europe have not always considered each other natural political partners. For most of American history, there hasn’t even been a unified “Europe” to partner with. [...] Advertisement

In 1973, Henry Kissinger, himself a transatlantic refugee, launched a “Year of Europe” tour to try to save the relationship in the name of containment, preventing the further growth of the Soviet Union. Speaking as Nixon’s national security adviser, he asked whether the Atlantic community could thrive as the memory of the second world war began to fade. As the “rigid divisions of the past two decades diminish, new assertions of national identity and national rivalry emerge”. He argued that Americans should continue to support European unity. “If we permit the Atlantic partnership to atrophy … we shall miss our historic opportunity for even greater achievement.”

Stealing letters from Trump’s desk
Woodward reports that the former top White House economic adviser Gary Cohn “stole a letter off Trump’s desk” that, if signed, would have withdrawn the US from its free trade agreement with South Korea, as well as another draft letter on withdrawing from Nafta. Cohn later reportedly told an associate that Trump never noticed the first letter went missing.
‘You are not a good witness’
According to the book, Trump’s former personal lawyer John Dowd told the president that if he testified before the Mueller investigation, he would probably go to jail. “Don’t testify. It’s either that or an orange jumpsuit,” said Dowd. Trump’s attorney went on to tell him “you are not a good witness” and resigned the next day.
‘Crazytown’
The White House chief of staff, John Kelly, called Trump an “idiot” and describing the White House as “Crazytown”, according to Woodward’s account. However, in a statement from the White House issued on Tuesday afternoon, Kelly said: “The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true.”

[45m by regional train from home. my generation. "mostly men"] The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has condemned two days of far-right street violence that has left several people injured, which flared up after a Syrian and an Iraqi were accused of killing a German man on Sunday.

Some far-right protesters were accused of hunting foreigners in street mobs in the eastern city of Chemnitz, while others were seen with Nazi-linked banners and giving the outlawed straight-arm salute as demonstrations went into their second day.

Summer weather is getting 'stuck' due to Arctic warming | Environment | The Guardian
Rising temperatures in the Arctic have slowed the circulation of the jet stream and other giant planetary winds, says the paper, which means high and low pressure fronts are getting stuck and weather is less able to moderate itself.

The authors of the research, published in Nature Communications on Monday, warn this could lead to “very extreme extremes”, which occur when abnormally high temperatures linger for an unusually prolonged period, turning sunny days into heat waves, tinder-dry conditions into wildfires, and rains into floods.
