Prentis urges Labour to commit to a ‘new deal’ for public services
This year’s Labour conference – online, as befits the times – marked two very special speeches: the last by Dave Prentis as UNISON general secretary, and the first by Keir Starmer as Labour leader.

Public health crises have spawned conspiracy theories as far back as when the Black Death ravaged Europe in the 1300s, as people desperately try to make sense of the chaotic forces disrupting their lives.

The result: many Americans now believe pandemic-related conspiracy theories—and, alarmingly, those same people are less likely to take steps to p...
