Labour’s next leader has already betrayed the left – Middle East Eye

| February 21, 2020

In recent years the British Labour party has grown rapidly to become one of the largest political movement in Europe, numbering more than half a million members, many of them young people who had previously turned their backs on national politics. The reason was simple: a new leader, Jeremy Corbyn, had shown that it was possible to rise to the top of a major party without being forced to sacrifice ones principles along the way and become just another machine politician. But as Corbyn prepares to step downafter a devastating election defeat, statements by the three contenders, Lisa Nandy, Rebecca Long-Bailey and Keir Starmer, for his crown suggest that his efforts to reinvent Labour as a mass, grassroots movement are quickly unravelling.A politics of cynicism dressed only loosely in progressive garb -has returned to replace Corbyn's popular democratic socialism.

That has been the Palestinian leaders modus operandi for the past 17 years, and it has kept him on the wrong path of sparing no effort to fight Israel in the international arena, which at times seems to be his primary goalsomething far more important to him than promoting Palestinian interests that could facilitate statehood.

New Life in the Dead of Winter One of the first things that my husband and I did when we bought our home in Israel was plant fruit trees in our new garden. What a blessing it was! Trees in Israel are different from those anywhere else in the world. They are subject to biblical laws, such as God's directive to wait three years before eating the fruit of a new tree (Leviticus 19:23), and not to work the land or prune trees during the Sabbatical year (Leviticus 25:1-7)

Review – Tom Stoppard’s Leopoldstadt at the Wyndham’s Theatre – LondonTheatre.co.uk

| February 15, 2020

The last new Tom Stoppard play to open directly in the West End was Indian Ink -itself based on an earlier radio play - which premiered at the Aldwych Theatre twenty-five years ago. All of his plays since then have mostly been seen first at the National, including the three-part The Coast of Utopia, Arcadia and The Invention of Love (the latter pair of which then transferred to the West End), with one other play Rock 'n' Roll originating at the Royal Court in 2005 (though its West End transfer was already announced before it even opened there). So the first striking thing about Leopoldstadt is that it has dared to open, under the auspices of London's most prolific producer Sonia Friedman, directly into the West End, where it is booking through mid-June (and can't be extended as Life of Pi is already booked in to follow it, transferring from Sheffield, later that month).
