With Keir Starmer in charge, Labour can hold the Tories to account again | Polly Toynbee

Expect the government’s incompetent handling of the coronavirus crisis to finally come under proper scrutiny

The country today gains an opposition leader who will for the first time subject the government’s competence in this coronavirus crisis to relentless scrutiny. The political landscape will be recast beyond recognition. Where there was no effective opposition, a void, a limbo, now in Keir Starmer the party has a grand prosecutor well qualified to hold the government’s feet to the fire. Until now Boris Johnson had nothing to fear from a four-times vanquished and demoralised foe, with a leader so discredited a plurality of his own voters tell YouGov he changed their party for the worse. From now on Johnson faces the challenge of an unrecognisably remade opposition. A trusted, tried and tested, big-brained grown-up arrives as a formidable opponent to this ramshackle, impromptu and patently incompetent prime minister.

'We're gonna die': migrants in US jail beg for deportation due to Covid-19 exposure

Ice detainees isolated after one had Covid-19 symptoms tell the Guardian that cries for help and protection have gone ignored

Detainees in a US immigration jail are begging to be released after potential Covid-19 exposure, saying the conditions are so brutal that they would rather suffer deportation than remain locked up.

Three men incarcerated at the Winn correctional center in a remote part of Louisiana told the Guardian that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) has isolated 44 of them together after they were possibly exposed to coronavirus. Some of the detainees are so desperate to leave that they are seeking voluntary deportation. They say their cries for masks, hand sanitizer, gloves and cleaning supplies have gone ignored, including for elderly detainees and those with asthma.

Fresh veg hard to come by? Grow microgreens | Alys Fowler

Check your garden, path edges – even the back of your kitchen cupboard. Then get sprouting

The hungry gap is traditionally that moment when winter stores are dwindling and spring greens are not quite ready: just about now. Of course, when there’s a virus around as hazardous as Covid-19, it takes on a whole new meaning.

You probably have a larder full of pasta and tins by now, and perhaps a freezer full of peas; but fresh greens may be harder to come by. Growing super-quick windowsill greens will allow you to sprinkle nutrients and vitamins over dishes, adding flavour and boosting your immunity. Curried baked beans served with a delicate heap of fresh coriander and kale seedlings is a mighty lot more tasty (and healthful) than without.

I was assaulted at 18. Eleven years on, could I find out what happened to my attackers?

I left Lisbon knowing I had reported their attempted rape to the police. Now I wanted the full story

In early 2017, I was invited to a four-week artist residency in Lisbon, Portugal. The residency was not particularly prestigious: it charged a fee for the room I was to stay in, a barely habitable space perched above a gallery behind a series of locked doors. The bed for my partner and I was a mattress on a stack of shipping crates; the kitchenette was little more than a microwave and a bar fridge.

To cover the residency fee, I applied for and received a small literary grant. In my application, I wrote that “engaging readers and collaborators internationally” would be a “vital step in my career development”. The residency would enable me to “learn new creative methodologies in transdisciplinary artistic workshops, alongside a host of international artists” and give me the opportunity to present my work “within an international context” for the first time.

Desolate New York: eerie photos of a ghost metropolis

Covid-19 has struck New York – and the world’s most dynamic city has become something strange and unsettling

“It is a miracle that New York works at all,” EB White once wrote. “The whole thing is implausible.”

Every New Yorker instinctively understands the truth of that observation. The city’s infrastructure is a disaster; its apartments are famously tiny; everything is overpriced; there are too many people in too small a space; and the whole city will one day have to reckon with the ravages of an encroaching sea.
