'A genuinely disturbing place': England's spookiest sites inspire new ghost stories from top writers
The likes of Jeanette Winterson, Mark Haddon and Sarah Perry have penned dark tales of ancient houses and hauntings, spanning the country from Audley End in Essex to York Cold War BunkerBeneath Dover Castle, an imposing Gothic bulk atop the chalk hills of the English port, is a labyrinth of tunnels. Dug in the 18th century for troops garrisoned there as a first line of defence against revolutionary France, the tunnels have recently developed a ghostly reputation.Once a month, English Heritage, which manages the site, evacuates the tunnels for staff to perform sweeps, searching for any of the mysterious figures that tourists have reported seeing. In one report, a heavy door slammed shut and a stretcher trolley, part of a wartime exhibit, raced along the corridor as if pushed by a violent force. In another, a stranger in wartime fatigues approached a small boy asking for his help to find “Helen” (neither man nor his quarry were found). Continue reading...
With its tales of terrifying journeys and hopeless days, a storytelling project is putting flesh on the statistics. We should be all be outraged• Hugh Muir is associate editor of Guardian OpinionIn our interconnected world, it is such a truism that everyone has a story to tell that we rarely ask to hear them. We should. Both sides would benefit. We might start with The Student’s Tale, about the young man studying epidemiology who is detained in Britain, having survived a perilous journey from Africa, menaced by the knives and guns of people smugglers. He had been forced to flee his village, having been denounced as an apostate.Or The Lorry Driver’s Tale, the account of a trucker who travels from Calais to Dover and, seeing the misery and desperation of the migrants who dot his path, occasionally brings one across to a new life. The Witness’s Tale: the fortunes of a man falsely accused in his home country of being a terrorist, who makes it to Britain, helps the state convict a gang of murderous, brutal people smugglers, and is told that his reward is to be deportation back to a likely death. Perhaps The Abandoned Person’s Tale, the recollection of a youth rounded up in his homeland during a crackdown on student protests, who spends three years in detention here before eventual release. Each tale vastly different; each illuminating a system that should deal humanely on our behalf with the many people who arrive here seeking refuge, sanctuary and a better life, but which every day fails to deliver.

They don’t even call to verify the facts of a story. A Fake News Joke!” ... 6:58 a.m.: “Some of the Fake News Media likes to say that I am not totally engaged in healthcare. Wrong, I know the subject well & want victory for U.S.”TRUMP TALKS HEALTH CARE: From POLITICO’s Madeline Conway: “The Senate Republican bill to repeal Obamacare ‘will be great, if we get it done,’ President Donald Trump told GOP lawmakers shortly after party leaders delayed a vote on the legislation Tuesday. ‘This will be great, if we get it done,’ Trump told senators gathered in the White House for a meeting about the stalled health care effort. ‘And if we don't get it done, it’s just going to be something that we’re not going to like, and that’s OK and I understand that very well.’ ‘But I think we have a chance to do something very, very important for the public, very, very important for the people of our country that we love,’ he added, before asking reporters to leave the meeting.”INSIDE THE STALLED SENATE VOTE: From POLITICO’s Burgess Everett, Jennifer Haberkorn and Josh Dawsey: “Senate Republicans had no inkling of what they were walking into on Tuesday afternoon as they filed into the Mike Mansfield room on the Capitol’s second floor. Mitch McConnell’s 51 colleagues, from his most junior members to his closest lieutenants, fully expected the Senate to vote this week on the Senate GOP’s wounded Obamacare repeal bill. They knew the whip count was far worse than advertised but were ready for McConnell to either admit defeat or start a furious round of deal-making to try to win their support. They took McConnell at his word that a vote would occur, regardless of the result. Then the Kentucky Republican shocked them all as he dispassionately informed them at the top of the meeting that the vote would be delayed, and that he would continue the painful exercise of trying to get 50 of the caucus’ 52 votes for Obamacare repeal.”TRUMP TOWER MOSCOW?: From POLITICO’s Edward-Isaac Dovere, Madeline Conway and Tyler Fisher: “Three weeks before Donald Trump officially accepted the Republican nomination last year, the Trump Organization renewed licenses on hundreds of new domain names for business ventures at home and around the world—including CelebrityApprenticePoker.com, TrumpForeclosureInvesting.com and TrumpTowerMoscow.com. The re-registration of domain names continued after Trump’s inauguration, with hundreds of sites kept for potential new businesses in Ireland, the United Arab Emirates, China, India and Indonesia once he was already in the Oval Office. Three weeks before Trump hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago club in South Florida, the Trump Organization renewed its licenses for MarALagoClubAsia.com and theMarALagoClub.Asia. … Publicly available internet directory records analyzed by POLITICO from the domain registration database website WhoIs.com show thousands of sites registered by the Trump Organization’s general counsel, with many for existing Trump businesses, including some that have since been shuttered, but many that instead direct to holding pages.”TRUMP’S FAKE NEWS: From The Washington Post’s David A. Fahrenthold: “The framed copy of Time magazine was hung up in at least five of President Trump’s clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump. ‘Donald Trump: The “Apprentice” is a television smash!’ the big headline said. Above the Time nameplate, there was another headline in all caps: ‘TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!’ … The Time cover is a fake.”
