But these days, it’s impossible to know where the lines are – as the country’s most celebrated director discovered to his cost. By Joshua Yaffa<p>One Saturday evening in December 2017, as it has regularly for nearly 200 years, the stage of the Bolshoi Theatre, draped by its famous scarlet-and-gold curtain, featured the long-anticipated premiere of a new ballet. Tickets had sold out almost instantly. The Bolshoi’s capacious hall, ringed by teetering<strong> </strong>loggia boxes, was filled with so many members of the ruling elite that the event seemed an updated version of an old Communist party central committee congress.</p><p>The highly awaited ballet was a staging of the life and work of Rudolf Nureyev, the famed dancer and choreographer whose defection from the Soviet Union in 1961 made international headlines. The director was Kirill Serebrennikov, who, at 48, was Russia’s most celebrated theatrical figure, an artist whose tastes run to the experimental and provocative. The ballet, titled Nureyev, portrays its hero as a genius whose talent, like his idiosyncrasies, made him difficult for the bosses of the time to understand – an inevitable object of suspicion.</p> <a

To little surprise, he turned the query upon the questioner: “Why are you in such a hurry? I’m not going anywhere yet.”</p><p>There was no lack of warning about the intentions of Russia’s longest-serving leader since Stalin. A generation that has grown up <a href="https://www.ft.com/content/4006f332-31a8-11ea-a329-0bcf87a328f2" title="">knowing nothing but his rule</a> now looks forward to its indefinite perpetuation.

But the unexpected aspect was the timing and the nature of his move.

It may not have amounted to an all-encompassing vision, but Nandy has a very good turn of phrase - eg, “the lesson from history is that the path of least resistance has never pointed towards progress”, or “Labour is not yet in power, but we should never believe we are powerless” - and the speech contained some serious arguments. Here is a summary of the main points from what was in it, and from her Q&amp;A.</p><p>Russia is a regime that discriminates against LBGT people,</p><p>That demonises Muslims and other minorities and suppresses basic rights.</p><p>We cannot turn up at the G20 and pledge our commitment to the Paris agreement while continuing to use government money to invest in fossil fuel projects overseas. Or export plastic waste to dump it in South-East Asia.</p><p>As we look to forge new trading alliances across the world, we will need to make choices. We should be clear now: we would refuse to agree any trade deal with a country that has not ratified the Paris agreement. We must use trade to support climate action, not hamper it.</p><p>In recent years the question of internationalism has been reduced to a discussion on the left that can be reduced to this: EU – in or out?</p><p>It has polarised the whole country, most of whom had much more complex and nuanced views about EU membership and EU structures than this reductionist debate would have us believe.</p><p class="block-time published-time"> <time datetime="2020-01-15T14:52:28.502Z">2.52pm <span class="timezone">GMT</span></time> </p><p>The disgraced former MP <strong><a href="https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/10/labour-keith-vaz-stands-down">Keith Vaz</a> </strong>has made a surprise bid to re-enter Labour politics after being declared as the chair of the constituency party that he represented for 32 years, my colleague <strong>Rajeev Syal</strong> reports.</p><p> <span>Related: </span><a href="https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/jan/15/former-mp-keith-vaz-launches-surprise-labour-comeback">Former MP Keith Vaz launches surprise Labour comeback</a> </p><p class="block-time published-time"> <time datetime="2020-01-15T14:50:38.979Z">2.50pm <span class="timezone">GMT</span></time> </p><p>In her speech in the Queen’s speech debate earlier <strong>Rebecca Long-Bailey,</strong> the shadow business secretary and Labour leadership candidates, said she was “alarmed” about the report that <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/jan/10/xr-extinction-rebellion-listed-extremist-ideology-police-prevent-scheme-guidance">counter-terrorism police had listed Extinction Rebellion as an “extreme ideology”.</a> She said:</p><p>The reports that the government’s response to defend the recommendation to list them [Extinction Rebellion] alongside neo-Nazi terrorists was an absolute disgrace and I urge [Andrea Leadsom, the business secretary] to speak to her colleagues about this because it’s absolutely absurd that our school strikers, that our climate activists who are trying to fight to be heard here in Westminster are being listed alongside terrorist organisations when they’re simply trying to save the planet and deliver a world for their children and grandchildren.</p><p>The IPCC, the world’s leading body on climate change, says that the entire world needs to reach net zero by 2020 to avoid more than 1.5 degrees of warming.</p><p>Given the UK’s historic responsibility for climate change and our wealth and resources to do something about it, we clearly need to be ahead of the curve by this, and we need to be honest, that 2050 is not good enough, not if we’re serious about keeping our people safe, and I’d urge the government to revisit this target.</p><p>Let’s be honest about what that means.

It will probably be like this for a while, for various structural reasons. Boris Johnson clearly doesn’t feel remotely threatened by the outgoing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn (even when Corbyn has a point, as he did today), there are no awkward squad Tory MPs posing difficult questions and the Labour leadership contest - where what is said in the next few weeks by candidates will decide the outcome - did not feature, because none of Corbyn’s potential successors got a question.</p><p>Corbyn devoted all his questions to health and social care and the points he made about what has happened to the NHS after 10 years of Tory government were strong and unanswerable. But as an election loser who is working his notice, Corbyn doesn’t really have the authority to unsettle Johnson, and the PM rambled through quite easily. Corbyn’s reference to the Labour manifesto gave Johnson the chance to deliver an effective put-down.
