Flying the flag, faking the news from The New Statesman– Loud noises from Washington about a US pull-out from Iraq are a poor disguise for America’s determination to keep waging war. And the same sort of spin is at work here in Britain: http://www.newstatesman.com/international-politics/2010/09/pilger-iraq-false-war-public

The last of the Jewish Arabs from The Economist– An ancient community is finally abandoning its Yemeni homeland: http://www.economist.com/node/16847296

Sean Connery should stage a comeback to retire on a high from The Guardian – Now 80, the former Bond star has vowed never to act again. He should reconsider and find one last great role to erase the memory of a decade of duds: http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/filmblog/2010/sep/03/sean-connery-comeback

‘It’s OK to embarrass yourself’, Nick Cave and the return of Grinderman from The Guardian – With one band Nick Cave has a carefully built musical legacy. With his other, he can visit his ‘lower self’ and make chaotic noise. Alexis Petridis meets Grinderman: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/sep/02/grinderman-nick-cave-bad-seeds-interview
