An eyebrow speaks a thousand words | Letters
Even the old Soviet Aeroflot had occasional human moments (Aeroflot official: No one wants overweight crew, 26 April). One of the most eloquent and, indeed, elegant flight attendants I have ever seen was on an Aeroflot flight from Tashkent to Leningrad in the 1980s. A tall, dignified, central Asian woman, she had conformed to Aeroflot stereotype by appearing impassive as she went about her work. As the plane made its approach to Leningrad airport, she was faced with a group of noisy, elderly American tourists who were ignoring the seatbelt signs. At one point she looked across at my wife and me and raised one eyebrow a couple of millimetres. It said more than words ever could and I have remembered it for 30 years.Rev Dr Peter PhillipsSwansea• Join the debate – email guardian.letters@theguardian.com Continue reading... [...]

The Guardian view on Bangladesh: the people deserve better | Editorial
Bangladesh’s sterile, poisonous politics do a disservice to its peopleBangladesh’s impressive run in the Champions Trophy, though terminated by a thrashing from India in the semi-final last week, highlighted the cricket team’s striking progress and won deserved applause. This relatively young nation – which only won independence from Pakistan in 1971 – usually gets little credit for its triumphs against the odds. Those obstacles have been numerous, including the legacy of colonialism and the war of independence, and the challenges of safeguarding the world’s eighth-largest population when it is crammed into a delta: at least 150 people are thought to have died in floods and landslides last week. Yet the country has slashed cyclone deaths through better shelters and warning systems, and made impressive strides on health, literacy and poverty alleviation.Its greatest enemy has arguably been the folly of its own politicians who remain locked in a vicious and sterile feud which has claimed too many lives and squandered opportunities to strengthen the country. Since 1991, leadership has swung between the Awami League and the Bangladesh Nationalist party, each led by dynastic leaders, Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia. The last elections, in 2014, were scarred by widespread violence and have been followed by further attacks on the opposition. Few believe that politics have not played a part in the legal cases against Ms Zia and her son and heir apparent, Tarique Rahman. Earlier this month the former prime minister Moudud Ahmed and his wife, the poet Hasna Jasimuddin Moudud, were evicted from their home after it was seized by court order. Mr Ahmed, 77, is not only a BNP party elder – but also a lawyer who defended Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Sheikh Hasina’s father and the country’s founding leader, when what was then West Pakistan charged him with sedition pre-independence. It says much about how Bangladesh’s leaders have wasted its original hopes as they obsess over divisions and ignore common interests. Continue reading... [...]
