I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

British households will be £1,000 worse off next year, thinktank warns

Resolution Foundation finds household incomes set to fall by about 2% amid cost of living squeeze

British households will be £1,000 worse off next year from a cost of living squeeze created by rising energy prices and shortages of workers and supplies caused by Covid and Brexit, a leading thinktank has warned.

The Resolution Foundation said higher levels of inflation would weigh down workers’ earnings next year, contributing to a hit to the average household income in Britain at a time when the government is cutting benefits and raising taxes.

Grenfell: Value Engineering review – gruelling, unfinished tragedy

Tabernacle, London
Verbatim reconstruction of the inquiry into the 2017 disaster points up the horrifying, amoral capitalism that fuelled it

Grenfell Tower housed many of the “have-nots” in a borough of great and conspicuous wealth, as we know from news analysis. The Tabernacle theatre, less than a mile away from the site of the fire in June 2017, sits squarely at the swanky end. This proximity carries a heavy symbolism in the staging of Guardian journalist Richard Norton-Taylor’s verbatim play, directed by Nicolas Kent, which summarises the ongoing Grenfell Tower inquiry, and it feels both pointed and discomforting.

Leslie Thomas QC (Derek Elroy), representing the bereaved, survivors and residents’ group, connects the gulf between rich and poor in the borough to a bigger social injustice. Grenfell, Thomas says, did not happen in a vacuum but was linked to race and poverty. This re-enactment also highlights the corporate machinations around the tower’s refurbishment – intent on driving down costs and amping up aesthetics – which played their part.

Value Engineering: Scenes from the Grenfell Inquiry is at the Tabernacle theatre, London, until 13 November and then at Birmingham Rep from 16–20 November.

More than a third of UK music industry workers lost jobs in 2020

UK Music’s annual report says 69,000 people lost work as the pandemic wiped billions off the value of the sector

More than a third of UK music industry workers lost their jobs last year – 69,000 in total – as venues closed, festivals were scrapped, tours ground to a halt and the pandemic wiped billions off the value of the sector.

UK Music, the umbrella organisation representing the commercial music industry from artists and record labels to the live music sector, said the value of the industry almost halved last year due to the financially crippling impact of the Covid crisis.
