The UAE is trampling human rights. Man City must finally speak out | Simon Hattenstone | Opinion | The Guardian
Just to reiterate, Sheikh Mansour is not just a wealthy individual in the United Arab Emirates: he and his family run the country and make all the important decisions. People live and die by their rulings.

Poverty exists. Shooting the UN messenger won’t erase that fact | Nesrine Malik | Opinion | The Guardian
Predictably and punctually, the denials of Alston’s findings arrived. He was told by the UK government that the social support system was ticking along nicely, and that there was no extreme poverty in the UK because, among other cherry-picked statistics, household incomes were at a record high. This encapsulates the government’s broken logic – to which it holds doggedly despite all contrary evidence – that because some people are becoming better off, then all of us are. If anything, this excuse reifies allegations of a two-tier society, where one half is getting richer while the other is getting poorer, and high walls are erected against the desperate and eyes averted from their suffering.

The UK is in a spiral where an irreversible, indisputable calamity has to happen – a Windrush or a Grenfell – before any tragically belated reforms are introduced. Shooting the UN messenger may afford this government temporary relief, but it comes at the expense of the country’s future.

How the left must respond to this age of anger | Lisa Nandy | Opinion | The Guardian
"Liberal socialism provides an essential counterbalance, built on the restatement of equal worth and guaranteed by a human rights framework. But it is in communities most deprived of these freedoms that the concept of human rights has become most widely discredited. Labour’s failure to embrace human rights – at worst viewing them as incompatible with socialism – is one of the great tragedies of our recent history."
