The new Tory right is fanatical and dangerous – and should be Labour’s prime target | John Harris

They have Johnson’s ear on everything from face masks to net zero. But the public mood is against them, and Starmer needs to be too
The House of Commons rarely hears speeches about what it is to be human, the elements of life that give it meaning, and the sanctity of free will. But last Tuesday, as MPs spent three hours considering what measures England should adopt in response to the arrival of the Omicron…

How will post-Covid Britain look? For many, like it did in the brutal 19th century | John Harris
