The end of ‘Buggins turn’ at Infosys is an end-of- dynasty lesson for Congress
If Jawaharlal Nehru could suddenly reappear and be injected into the top of the Congress leadership with a mandate to rebuild the demoralised party, would he echo, in a political sense, the words of Narayana Murthy, one of the founders of [...]
Since their inception in 1990, Anathema have been creating emotionally-charged music, all the while escaping the confines of genre. Distant Satellites, their 10th album, is one of their most uplifting and poignant records to date. Remfry Dedman sat down with principal songwriter/guitarist Daniel Cavanagh and vocalist Lee Douglas to talk about their latest release
The media’s current favourite portmanteau is “Spornosexual.” Its current favourite garment is the c-string manikini, a cutaway one-sided posing pouch that barely adheres to the pelvis.

The summer is here. As the sun shines dogs and their owners head to village fetes and markets
Before last week’s Newark by-election slips into the quiz night and footnote retrieval system, it is worth noting again what a good result it was for David Cameron.
Everyone has pointed out – I did two Sundays ago – that it was the first time the Tories have held onto a seat while they are in government since [...]
Pre-collections are collections too: last resorts from Stella McCartney, Lanvin, Balenciaga and JW Anderson
Fashion is demanding. Especially now we’re working on a four-season system instead of two. That’s my take-away thus far from the pre-collections.
