Sending fat smokers to the back of the queue is a betrayal of NHS values| Polly Toynbee

Who will feel the weight of opprobrium next: boy racers, climbers, potholers, or perhaps middle-aged wine drinkers? At this rate, we’ll all be fair game soonThe Vale of York has been granted permission this week by NHS England to put fat people and smokers to the back of the queue for operations. Starting in January, their treatments will be delayed a year; the obese must lose 10% of their body weight, and smokers give up for at least two months.The Royal College of Surgeons says it is “very disappointed that NHS England and No 10 seem to be backing this arbitrary policy”.

Christmas Days by Jeanette Winterson review – cruelty, comfort and joy

Difficult childhood memories transmute into forgiveness in a mix of seasonal stories, recipes, animal fables and fairytalesIn her 2011 memoir, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?, Jeanette Winterson recalled: “Most kids grow up leaving something out for Santa Claus at Christmas time … I used to make presents for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.”That memoir was the hilarious, if harrowing, account of Winterson’s attempt to escape the tyranny of her adoptive mother, a manic depressive who kept a revolver in her duster drawer, believed the activity of mice to be evidence of ectoplasm and built a short-wave radio to beam Pentecostal messages to the unconverted. She seemingly thought nothing of shutting her daughter in the coalhole overnight. Yet despite her dour outlook, Mrs Winterson loved Christmas. “It was the one time of the year she went out into the world looking as if the world was more than a vale of tears,” Winterson writes. “She was an unhappy woman and so this happy time in our house was precious. I am sure I love Christmas because she did.” Continue reading...

The actors, along with Arrested Development’s David Cross and the comedian Amy Sedaris, are all starring in a new podcast called Homecoming, which is Gimlet Media’s first foray into scripted dramas, a modern take on the old-time radio dramas.Scripted dramas are experiencing a second act in the world of podcasts, with creators embracing a format that’s now attracting bigger-name talent. The new life of audio dramas started with the strange fictional world of Welcome to Night Vale, which launched back in 2012. (In 2014 the Guardian called it “an unsettling radio drama masquerading as a local community news programme”.) As the genre became more popular, Welcome to Night Vale’s production company started releasing more dramas, including Alice Isn’t Dead, Within the Wires and The Orbiting Human Circus.
