I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Strictly Come Dancing 2019: the final – as it happened

Did Emma, Kelvin or Karim win the great Glitterball trophy? We followed every moment of Strictly’s sparkling Saturday night spectacular

And that’s the end of another Strictly – it’s been great fun, and as always made all the better by the incredible community in the comments. It’s been many years in the making with newcomers joining every year, and it feels like a very special corner of the internet. You are all amazing, and I hugely appreciate your wit and wisdom every week. A massive thank you to everyone.

That’s me done with liveblogging for 2019, but as usual we’ll open a blog on Christmas Day for the Strictly Christmas Special so you can put the comment box to good use. In the meantime you can find me on Twitter @heidistephens if you’d like to swing by and say hello (or goodbye).

The series plays out to ‘We Are Family’ with Kelvin on Graziano’s shoulders, which is a workout he may regret later.

Tactical voting was set to be Remainers’ saviour, so what went wrong?
Our polls were good at identifying the correct challenger in key seats. But voters needed more than a common enemy

In the end, fears of a Corbyn government and disdain for Jo Swinson’s election campaign combined to defeat tactical voting. Over the past four weeks, the Observer has reported on constituency polls designed to assist voters wanting to oppose the Conservatives and stop Brexit. Last Sunday, we recommended candidates in 50 seats. Our results were not great. Non-Conservatives won only 13 of these seats; of these, nine were SNP gains in Scotland. In England, our preferred candidates triumphed in only four seats: Putney and Portsmouth South (Labour) and Richmond Park and St Albans (Liberal Democrat).

Why so few successes? It was not the fault of Deltapoll’s data. Almost everywhere, they identified the correct challenger. Most dramatically, they showed rightly that the Liberal Democrats were snapping at Dominic Raab’s heels, despite the foreign secretary’s apparently impregnable 23,000 majority.

How will Labour’s meltdown change tactics of the US and European left?
Corbyn inspired America’s left in 2017. This defeat could hurt radical candidates

British voters’ ruthless rejection of Jeremy Corbyn and his radical socialist project reads like a cautionary tale for leftwing political leaders and parties in the US and Europe. Will Labour’s crushing defeat dim their ardour, or will they double down on revolution?

The general election outcome will embolden Democratic party critics of Bernie Sanders, a 2020 US presidential hopeful whose outlook has often been likened to Corbyn’s. Both men are veteran hard-left campaigners with strong appeal among younger, post-crash voters.

I take my share of responsibility for this defeat, says Jeremy Corbyn
‘I am proud that we won the arguments,’ says Labour leader in his account of party’s election failure

Jeremy Corbyn on Sunday accepted his personal responsibility for Labour’s general election defeat as he gave his fullest explanation to date for the catastrophic losses that helped return Boris Johnson to Downing Street.

Writing in the Observer, the Labour leader, who has announced he will step down when a successor is elected in the spring, describes the results as “desperately disappointing”.

UN climate talks drag on as rifts scupper hopes of breakthrough

Governments including the US, Brazil, Australia and China accused of frustrating negotiations

Global climate talks look set to continue past midnight on Saturday, after a marathon final negotiating session that has been ongoing since Friday without clear resolutions on how to implement the Paris agreement, to the frustration of many countries and the dismay of campaigners.

Some bodies attending the summit – notably the EU – came forward with new long-term goals on cutting greenhouse gas emissions, but most were content to spend the two weeks of UN talks in Madrid arguing over narrow technical issues, including the details of carbon trading.
