Leon Osman marks new deal with a goal as Everton cruise to win over Lille - http://www.theguardian.com/footbal...
A starting role is no longer guaranteed at Everton for Leon Osman but he has not been kept at the club on sentiment. The one-club man celebrated a new one-year contract at Goodison Park with the opening goal in a comprehensive defeat of Lille as Roberto Martínezs team strengthened their hold on Group H. Everton are not mathematically certain of a place in the knockout phase of the Europa League just yet but they moved closer with a mature, polished performance against the ineffective French side.

Laughing referee denies Celtic a late winner against Astra Giurgiu - http://www.theguardian.com/footbal...
Celtics Leigh Griffiths said the Ukrainian referee Serhiy Boiko had laughed at him after disallowing what would have been a late winner as the Scottish champions drew against Astra Giurgiu in Romania. Had the goal stood Celtic would have qualified for the group stages, given that Dinamo Zagreb had lost 5-1 at home to Salzburg. But Ronnie Deilas side are in a strong position in group D, five points ahead Zagreb with two games left. Continue reading...

There have been calls to extend the display, which is due to be taken down after Remembrance Day on 11 November, but Cummins says "the whole idea is for it to be transient" Continue reading...

Luxembourg and Juncker under pressure over tax deals - http://www.theguardian.com/busines...
Politicians in France, Germany and Netherlands protest at effect of laws passed by EC chief when the countrys prime minister French, German and Dutch finance ministers have rounded on Luxembourg for allowing multinational companies to create complicated structures to avoid billions of dollars of tax. Pressure is also mounting on Jean-Claude Juncker, the new president of the European commission and former long-serving prime minister of Luxembourg, who oversaw the introduction of laws that helped turn the tiny European country into a magnet for multinationals who are seeking to reduce their tax bills. Luxembourg is extremely secretive Now we have evidence. For the first time we have real evidence" Continue reading...

Robert ONeills claim to be Bin Laden killer challenges Seals code of silence - http://www.theguardian.com/us-news...
Publicity around shooting of al-Qaida leader goes against ethos of quiet professionals and undermines Obamas military coup Silence had long been a matter of pride for the US special forces. Dirty, dangerous work done without any public acclaim. Knowledge of their deeds restricted to a tiny band of brothers. Not for nothing were the navys elite Seal (Sea, air and land) teams dubbed the quiet professionals. But there is little quiet about them these days. Never before in the history of the special forces has so much been known about so few. Since the Seal raid on Osama bin Ladens compound in Pakistan in 2011, almost every detail of their operation has been divulged. Continue reading...

The Possibilities Are Endless review a remarkable story on recollecting a life - http://www.theguardian.com/film...
An immersive documentary about musician Edwyn Collins recovery from a stroke digs beauty out of tragedy James Hall and Edward Lovelaces documentary is about the post-stroke recovery of Edwyn Collins, the singer/songwriter who fronted the Scottish alt-rock band Orange Juice. Theres a disjointed beauty in this visualisation of a man struggling to recollect the facts of his life; a lot of power in the fight to rebuild the link between brain and location. Hall and Lovelace have skirted the temptation to make a conventional documentary; instead they immerse us in the experience, as confusing and frightening as it is. They dig beauty out of tragedy without being too neat about it and have made a remarkable film. Continue reading...

Labour is doomed if its leadership cant convey the message - http://www.theguardian.com/comment...
Ed Miliband knows that he lacks charisma, so he must enable his team to communicate his vision The question I keep being asked is: Can Labour win the next election? My answer is yes, but . Not the best answer for an opposition facing a Tory party with deep internal divisions. The but is indicative of our problems. We could win but only because the Tories are split and could lose. That is certainly a possibility but even if it does happen, we wont achieve a significant Labour majority. It is more likely to be a minority government struggling to survive. Clearly, a more desirable option would be to win because we are capable of providing a sense of direction a vision of where we want to take the country and how we intend to get there.

Our addiction to criminalising human behaviour makes a mockery of private responsibility - http://www.theguardian.com/comment...
From drinking while pregnant to urinating on a war memorial, the laws ambition has no limits If poisoning your foetus with alcohol is a crime, why is it not a crime to abort it? If alcoholism in pregnancy is attempted manslaughter, as a QC told the court of appeal this week, surely abortion is murder. Indeed if alcoholism before birth criminally harms a babys life, what about alcoholism and a dozen other cruelties after birth? How many are the misdeeds we inflict on our children to which Britains cult of criminality should now turn its attention? We need a philosopher as Raymond Chandler would say and we need one fast. All we get are bloody lawyers. The motive for this weeks court case in London had nothing to do with the health of mother or child. It was blatantly financial. A local council is acting on behalf of a seven-year-old girl CP who suffers from acute foetal alcohol syndrome. The claimed cause was her mothers drinking during pregnancy. The suit is intended to shift the cost...
