    The European Union will be destroyed by its immoral handling of the coronavirus crisis

    On 27 March, Pope Francis was standing alone in an empty St Peter’s Square. Media from around the globe showed an iconic image of a man alone under the rain. Usually the Urbi et Orbi blessing is given on Christmas and Easter, or after a papal election. But in such “epidemic” times, the Pope was praying in front of gigantic crucifix for the coronavirus plague to end.Given the current hardships, the pontiff suggested how people should be “abandoning for a moment ... eagerness for power and possessions.” We should instead all find “the courage ... to allow [such] new forms of hospitality, fraternity ... solidarity and hope capable of giving strength, support and meaning to these hours when everything seems to be floundering”.

    Coronavirus: Top entrepreneur Luke Johnson says UK could face downturn similar to Great Depression

    One of Britain's leading entrepreneurs has issued a stark warning of tougher economic times ahead, suggesting the UK could face another "Great Depression". Luke Johnson, a former chairman of Pizza Express, urged the government to ramp up testing for people who may not have COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus, in a bid to get the country to go back to normal. "I think there is a terrible trade-off the country will have to make at some point in the very near future about the damage to our whole standard of living and whether we are willing to accept the suicides and all the collateral damage of the shutdown, as opposed to protecting the NHS so it can keep people with the virus alive."

    Corbyn was a disastrous leader for five years – it doesn’t matter that he was right about austerity

    Voting ends on Thursday in Labour’s leadership election, before Jeremy Corbyn’s long, five-month goodbye ends on Saturday. Even some one-time supporters can’t wait for him to leave the stage. “I wish he would just go away,” one MP groaned.Another said: “He’s ending with a whimper. At prime minister’s questions, he hasn’t managed the forensic questioning on coronavirus that Keir Starmer [the front-runner to succeed Corbyn] will bring. He still looks like the backbencher he was in 2015.”

    It's true that celebrities deserve none of your sympathy during the coronavirus pandemic. But they're not the worst ones

    This morning, Kim Kardashian-West — who, like President Trump, inherited wealth from her father but enjoys pretending to be “self-made” — went on The View to talk about how she’s coping in quarantine. I didn’t watch because, well, I don’t care what Kim Kardashian-West has to say, but judging from the response on Twitter, it went about as well as you’d expect.Kardashian-West isn’t the only celebrity during the current pandemic to lay bare the gross inequities between the lifestyles of the rich and famous and those of us struggling to make ends meet. The singer Sam Smith had an early and emotional breakdown on the steps of their £12 million mansion. Pharrell Williams asked fans to donate to help buy personal protective equipment for healthcare workers and got dragged for not emptying his own deep pockets. Madonna waxed poetic about how terrible yet wonderful it is that this deadly virus is a great equalizer while bathing in actual rose petals (after singing a bizarre song about fried fish which I insist you watch because honestly, it’s the best MAD TV sketch there never was).
