Shortest Way Home review: Pete Buttigieg as president in waiting

Monday 10:49 GMT

This is part of the life story Peter Buttigieg tells in his beautiful new book, Shortest Way Home, the best American political autobiography since Barack Obama’s Dreams from My Father.

Buttigieg writes unusually well for a politician, although his unfortunately frequent use of “impact” as a verb lends credence to his publicist’s insistence that the candidate wrote every word himself – unlike JFK, who found the best talent money could buy to help him write a Pulitzer winner. Buttigieg sees 9/11 as the turning point for his generation, when it became clear “irony and apathy wouldn’t dominate our years after all”.

Facebook faces fresh questions over when it knew of data harvesting

Monday 10:49 GMT

Facebook is facing explosive new questions about when senior executives knew of Cambridge Analytica’s abuse of users’ data, one year on from when the scandal first broke, as federal prosecutors investigate claims that the social media giant has covered up the extent of its relationship with the firm.

The Observer has learned of claims that a meeting was hosted at the office of Facebook board member and confidant of its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Marc Andreessen with Christopher Wylie, the Cambridge Analytica whistleblower, in the summer of 2016 just as the data firm started working for the Trump campaign.

Another Biden gaffe Former VP claims he's 'most progressive' Dem 'running'

Monday 10:49 GMT

There has been much speculation on whether Biden will launch a presidential run and enter the already crowded field of Democrats looking to unseat President Trump.

In recent weeks, Biden has taken heat from his own party, most recently for his kind words for current Vice President Mike Pence. "The world's worst dictators are using [the president's] own words to justify their own abuses of power," he added.

Brexit and the week that all but broke British politics

Monday 10:49 GMT

As he did so, a passerby said “balls to Brexit” and another roared “We love EU” as the two sides of the argument kept safe distances from each other – and the country tried to fathom what on earth the last extraordinary week in the Brexit saga had all been about.

It is Thursday afternoon and 20-year-old art student Sonya Woodruff has taken time off from her studies to make a point about Brexit outside parliament.

Jay Rayner: my 20 years as a restaurant critic

Monday 10:49 GMT

As I looked back, it quickly became clear that 1999 was a uniquely blessed year in which to begin writing about what I had for my tea.

1999 was the year Jamie Oliver debuted on BBC2’s The Naked Chef, with a gob full of bantz and a pocket full of recipes prioritising taste over presentation. It was the year Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck won its first Michelin star for its modernist fancies and the first full year of trading for a joint in Chelsea called Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.

Trump's media attacks are an abuse of power. We're holding him to account

Monday 09:53 GMT

The BBC’s Ron Skeans was attacked by a Trump supporter at a rally in El Paso, Texas, after Trump whined about “fake news” and negative media coverage.

Much of these allegations were earlier cited by Pen America in its lawsuit against Trump for his targeted retaliation against media outlets for their coverage of him. One source claimed that the targeted merger actions by the president and Department of Justice were in fact about CNN: “This has become political … It’s all about CNN.”

Why shouldn't there be a Yelp-like app for Trump-supporting diners?

Monday 09:53 GMT

63red Safe is a mobile app that differs from other review services in one major way: it provides information to its users about whether a business is safe from politics, especially for those that lean right.

“I’m trying to position it as an everyday ‘where can I go eat safely’ app,” Scott Wallace, the app’s founder, told the Daily Beast. The app – which according to the company’s website is temporarily unavailable in the Google and Apple stores (possibly due to reported security issues) but can be downloaded elsewhere online if you choose to take the risk – is just a very simplified version of Yelp.

'I was raised an American': Liberians await possible deportation from US

Today 06:05 GMT

Like many of the thousands of Liberians in the US who face possible deportation at the end of this month, Nyensuahtee Fofana, 23, is anxiously awaiting any sign the Trump administration might reverse course.

Fofana is one of an estimated 4,000 Liberians in the US through Deferred Enforced Departure (DED), a temporary status determined by the president. Starting in 1991, people fleeing civil war in Liberia were granted either Temporary Protective Status (TPS) or DED, both of which provide a work permit but not a path to citizenship.
