Thursday briefing: Trump walks away from Kurds with Normandy jibe
‘They didn’t help us in WWII,’ fighters who stopped Isis are told … England v France cancelled due to typhoon … and Johnson to meet Varadkar
Hagibis causes rugby havoc – Scotland’s World Cup remains in doubt with tournament organisers saying a short time ago that they must wait until Sunday morning to decide if their final and decisive pool match against Japan can go ahead. England and France will not play in Yokohama on Saturday evening, their match cancelled as large parts of Japan await the arrival of a powerful typhoon. Both teams have qualified for the quarter-finals with a game to spare. New Zealand and Italy also will not face each other. The matches will be treated as 0-0 draws and each team awarded two points. The stakes are high for the Scots, who would be eliminated if their match against Japan was to be cancelled, assuming that Ireland beat Samoa in Fukuoka on Saturday. Australia v Georgia and Ireland v Samoa are set to go ahead.
Real price of tea in your china – Poor pay and punitive working conditions are common on farms and plantations that supply fresh fruit or tea to UK supermarkets including Lidl, Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons, according to Oxfam. The charity says a “relentless” drive to maximise profits is fuelling poverty and gender discrimination in the supermarkets’ supply chains. Oxfam interviewed workers in India and Brazil and conducted a survey in five other countries. Workers on tea plantations in Assam said cholera and typhoid were rife because of poor access to toilets and safe drinking water. On fruit farms in north-east Brazil, women with children said they were forced to rely on relatives or government support to feed their families outside harvest season. Oxfam found that out of the 79p price of 100g of black Assam tea in the UK, supermarkets and tea brands receive 49p while workers get 3p.
Lunchtime read: Why Nixon defenders are silent on Trump Veterans of President Richard Nixon’s administration and members of his foundation – normally faithful Republican loyalists – have found little to say when approached by the Guardian about whether Donald Trump should face impeachment. The Trump presidency poses a number of awkward challenges to the Nixonian worldview, writes Andrew Gumbel: “For all his willingness to lean on the FBI and the IRS to do his political bidding domestically, Nixon never – at least as president – sought to extract political favours from overseas allies or client states.”

So is it official, Trump is working for the Russians? Trump, the Draft Dodger, never served his own country & his treatment of Kurds is disgraceful.
