The Tories are tough on Islamophobia? What a joke | Jonathan Freedland | Opinion | The Guardian
It means that both main UK parties are now facing accusations of institutional racism. Some will wonder why, of the two, it’s the issue of Labour antisemitism that has so far garnered the greater attention. One explanation is not flattering to the Tory party. It is simply that people expect much less of the Tories than they do of an avowedly anti-racist party such as Labour. Put another way, if the Tory party is riddled with bigotry towards a minority, it hardly comes as a surprise.

Kavanaugh has revealed the insidious force in global politics: toxic masculinity | Jonathan Freedland | Opinion | The Guardian
Much of the commentary on populism emphasises its appeal not only to economic anxiety, but to the sense of cultural displacement felt by those who fear ethnic and racial diversity. What’s discussed less often is the specific appeal to men, angry that their status has been shaken by the shifts of the last several decades.

£50bn to leave the EU. What an unforgivable waste of money | Jonathan Freedland | Opinion | The Guardian
For let’s remind ourselves of the basic truth here. We’ll be paying this money for the privilege of not being in the European club. Cabinet minister Chris Grayling this morning tried to defend the bill by contrasting it with the billions the UK currently sends to Brussels. But there’s a big difference, Chris. We get something for those billions. Now we’ll be forking out £50bn for nothing, for the right to sit in splendid isolation – cut off from our closest neighbours, trading with them on inferior terms that will cost us dear.
