As the schools prepare to reopen in May, we examine the government’s strategy to release the lockdown. What’s the impact on regular healthcare? Is it all over for the football season? How did KLM manage to stir up outrage about executive bonuses twice in a week? And most importantly of all, when can we stop cutting our own hair? In other news, there are fresh disclosures about the bombing raid in Iraq in 2015 and a landmark court decision on euthanasia. Plus: why hay fever sufferers need to be on their guard against German pollen.
