For the first and not the last time you think, theres nowt so queer as folk. Smith has conjured a kind of dream England in Winter, the second novel in a projected seasonal cycle that began with Autumn (2017), a book I adore. Often its England as a bad dream. Winter is an insubordinate folk tale, with echoes of the fiction of Iris Murdoch and Angela Carter, which plays out against a world gone wrong. Winter is no longer winter but a lukewarm wheeze. Brexit and Donald Trump have doused a rag with formaldehyde and placed it over the face of comity. Boris Johnson is compared to Samuel Johnson and found… wanting. This novel is set largely around Christmastime, but ...

Indonesian Christian whipped for selling sharia-banned booze 19.1.2018 General News
An Indonesian Christian was publicly flogged today for selling alcohol in conservative Aceh province, a violation of Islamic law, as a crowd of onlookers including children jeered. Jono Simbolon grimaced in pain when a masked religious officer lashed his back with a rattan stick on a makeshift stage outside a mosque in the provincial capital Banda Aceh. He is only the third non-Muslim to suffer a public whipping since Aceh, on Sumatra island, began implementing Islamic law after it was granted special autonomy in 2001 -- an attempt by the central government to quell a long-running separatist insurgency. "This is our government's commitment to enforcing Islamic law," said Banda Aceh mayor Aminullah Usman. "If there is a violation (of the law) immediately report it to the sharia police and we will carry out a punishment like today's caning," he said, referring to religious authorities. A doctor checked on Simbolon's condition after 10 strokes before the flogging ...

Congress on Friday accused AAP of having a tacit understanding with the BJP, as the Delhi-based political outfit announced that it would contest "as many seats as possible" in the Karnataka Assembly elections.
