    A hard Brexit means a hard border – whatever Owen Paterson says

    Owen Paterson, a former secretary of state for Northern Ireland, argued this week in the Guardian that the UK could leave the customs union, break free from EU rules, and still avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland. The problem with this claim is that the logic of a hard Brexit means hard borders. The EU is the world’s most advanced legal, technical and institutional environment for seamless border management.

    Brexit news latest: Crunch talks with Dominic Raab and Michel Barnier fail to deliver resolution on key issues

    Talks between Dominic Raab and EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier have failed to resolve key issues including the Irish border. The Brexit Secretary met with Mr Barnier for negotiations on Sunday as the government continues to desperately secure a deal on leaving the EU. Mr Barnier said “some key issues are still open” including the backstop measure to prevent a hard border.

    The Guardian view on Brexit delusions: diminishing Britain’s standing

    The wild promises of those leading the Brexit charge were always based on a fantasy about Britain’s global standing. In this way, Brexiters overstated both the ease of negotiating a satisfying departure from the EU for the UK – as if the EU would quickly deliver an outcome suiting the UK rather than the remaining 27 nations – and the ease of translating that into improved trade relations with the rest of the world. The problem at the heart of Theresa May’s Brexit nightmare remains the need to strike a deal with Europe that will prove politically acceptable back home, to parliament, her party and the DUP MPs on whom her government relies.

    Doctor Who episode 2 review: The Ghost Monument is a dystopian rhapsody with phasers set to stunning

    Indeed, diehard Doctor Who fans might well judge “The Ghost Monument” an improvement on Whittaker’s acclaimed debut seven days previously. There are killer robots, gothic spaceships and spectacular alien vistas – all the intergalactic boxes ticked. The Doctor’s quest to reclaim the Tardis – the one she’d fallen out of shortly after her transformation from Peter Capaldi at Christmas – has taken her to “Desolation”, a formerly thriving world now reduced to a bone-bleached wasteland (insert your own Brexit joke, etc).

The policy, which will be introduced within weeks, comes after minister were convinced by their own advisers that it would reduce the risk of babies developing spina bifida and other conditions that involve severe disability or death.

Some Muslim readers expressed to me concern that the image linked a particularly important aspect of their religion to the awful crimes of this individual.

    How irritating that smug couples have stumbled on the secret of a perfect relationship

    To quote the undecipherable academese seemingly beloved by social scientists trying to justify the fact they have spent months studying we-ing, they found “meta-analytic evidence that we-talk predicts relationship and personal functioning in romantic couples”. The study also found that hearing your partner use “we” frequently is more strongly linked to happiness than using we-talk yourself. Grammar may not be the answer to all romantic woes, but it can work wonders if you’re in a tense relationship: the researchers found we-talk is a good way to resolve conflicts. The poet William Carlos Williams would probably have had a much better romantic life, for example, if he had just said that “we have eaten the plums that were in the icebox”.
