Them...

  • Misogynist Brett Kavanaugh is now a US Supreme Court judge - despite facing multiple allegations of sexual assault, and crying, screaming and extolling the virtues of beer in the job interview. All it takes is a private school and Yale education, and a career attacking women and workers from the bench.
  • Sprucing up your front room this autumn? How about a black-and-white chair covered with an unpublished avant-garde line drawing by graphic artist Max Huber? Just 3,750.
  • With at least 4,000 bosses now worth over $20 million, personal wealth in India is on course to exceed Switzerland and Hong Kong by 2022, says Boston Consulting Group. 732 million people in India don't even have a toilet, according to WaterAid.

... & us

  • Families will lose out on 200 a month due to 'universal credit' welfare 'reforms', according to a Tory cabinet briefing. Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell has at last said that "pause and fix" is not enough. Scrap universal credit!
  • Before the 2007-08 Great Recession, real wages doubled every 29 years on average. Now they'll take 97 years to double, says the Resolution Foundation.
  • A minimum of 449 homeless people died last year while on the streets, sofa surfing, or in emergency accommodation, says the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
  • Greece's death rate soared by 17.6% in the six years following crucifying EU-enforced austerity in 2010, writes Larry Elliott in the Guardian.
