Kiruna: the arctic city being knocked down and relocated two miles away

1 hour 42 min ago
pTo avoid falling into the mine it grew up around, Sweden’s northernmost city is knocking down 3,000 homes, schools and a hospital, and starting a redesigned centre a safe distance away. How do citizens feel about the transformation?/ppA remote arctic settlement, with a centre dominated by a car park, Kiruna feels like the sort of city that might be forgotten about. The place is eerily, unnervingly quiet; the streets so empty I half expect a tumbleweed to pass by as a punchline. At one point, the gentle silence is broken by a procession of Harley-Davidsons roaring through the town.

The under-30s are drawn to this Labour leadership contender by human factors: qualities that are as much about tone as content – and made a Tuesday night in Luton electricpAround once a year now, something bubbles to the surface that shows how broken mainstream politics has become. Sometimes these things endure; often they fizzle out. But from the brief season of Cleggmania, through the on-off rise of Ukip and the so-called “green surge”, to the great political reformation in Scotland, Britain is experiencing its own version of the tumult that has broken out all over Europe. A politics built around fortysomething career politicians and three parties that fixate on an illusory centre ground is in increasing trouble.

The man with the toughest job in the world | Janine di Giovanni

3 hours 12 min ago
When Staffan de Mistura became UN special envoy, his past successes brought hope for peace. A year later, with no solution in sight, he faces heavy criticism. Has his innovative diplomacy failed or is it simply mission impossible?pIn July 2014, Staffan de Mistura, a 68-year old Italian-Swedish diplomat, was enjoying a peaceful semi-retirement on the isle of Capri when he received a telephone call from his former boss, the United Nations secretary general, a href="http://www.theguardian.com/world/ban-ki-moon" title=""Ban Ki-moon/a, offering him what might be the world’s most difficult job. De Mistura had worked under Ban as the chief of the UN missions to Afghanistan and Iraq, and he was now being asked to take up a role as the UN’s special envoy for Syria – charged with finding a peaceful resolution to one of the bloodiest and most complex wars of our time./ppDe Mistura hesitated. Following a stint as a deputy foreign minister in the Italian government, he had recently become the director of Villa San Michele, a Swedish cultural foundation on Capri, and he was considering setting up a Mediterranean policy thinktank. After 42 years of humanitarian work and 19 overseas missions, largely in conflict zones, he had promised his fiancee and two children (from a previous marriage) a “more normal life”./p a href="http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jul/30/staffan-de-mistura-man-with-toughest-job-in-world-syria"Continue reading.../abr clear='all'/br/br/a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"//abr/br/a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"//abr/br/a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"//abr/br/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/a2.htm"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/a2.img" border="0"//abr/a href="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/ach.htm"img src="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/ach.img" border="0"//aimg width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/a2t.img" border="0"/img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi2.feedsportal.com/r/234566353121/u/60/f/663828/c/34708/s/488e809f/sc/7/a2t2.img" border="0"/img width='1' height='1' src='http://feeds.theguardian.com/c/34708/f/663828/s/488e809f/sc/7/mf.gif' border='0'/
