The Narendra Modi government’s image problems began towards the end of last year when arch Hindu nationalists within the BJP’s Sangh Parivar (family of organisations) voiced extreme views about minorities such as Muslims, which Modi took a long time to rebut. One minister implied that everyone apart from Hindus were born illegitimately. There were also [...]
I’m never a fan of fashion journalism that talks more about the show than the clothes. It smacks of a writer reticent to offer an opinion, lest it offend (or perhaps, just unsure of what they really think, or what to really say). But, with the newly-minted Around The World In Eighty Looks format of pre-collection presentation, it’s unavoidable. Fashion houses want journalists to be awed by the financial might that can shift an entire industry across the world on a creative whim. Moreover, they want them to communicate that to their readers, reinforcing the strength of the designer and, perhaps most importantly, the security of the brand as a whole. That not only sells clothes – it also drives the share price up.
Cauliflower & Spinach Cheese with Garlic Thyme Croutons This is one of those dishes you know you won’t have leftovers from and I can guarantee it will be scoffed in one sitting. Serve it solo or serve it up with your Sunday roast, toad in the hole or just smothered over a crusty, white buttered loaf. If you’re feeling particularly experimental grill on toast for an amazing spin on welsh rarebit. Completely indulgent and not for every day…but definitely not a recipe to miss.

Last week I moved my tomatoes, chillies, cucumbers, melons and cucamelon plants from the windowsill in our dining room to the cold frame at the plot. Him Indoors was very happy to get them out of the house, but I had to make sure these tender plants were, too. Late April to early May sees [...]
Glaswegian math / post rock newcomers Dialects are set to release their debut EP LTKLTL or to give it its full title Let The Kids Light These Lanterns on the 11th May. The formation of the band goes back to a particularly lacklustre Christmas party where guitarists Conor Anderson and Steve Gillies and [...]
Despite a 5.30am alarm for a flight to Palm Springs Tuesday morning to see Nicolas Ghesquiere’s latest Louis Vuitton Cruise show (at the Bob and Dolores Hope Estate and inspired, in part, by The Hunger, apparently), I spent most of Monday late night engrossed in documenting and dissecting the fashion of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. As with many things, the primary arena for this is Twitter – a pithy 140 character rant about a like or, more often, a dislike, accompanied by a picture. Then onto the next. It’s become something of a yearly tradition in the fashion fraternity.
With a sound self-described as ‘Big Morbid Death Pop’, Charlie Barnes make good on that oddly curious descriptor with the release of More Stately Mansions on 11th May. The album is available to stream exclusively with The Independent a week before release below.
The band, fronted by Charlie, play an audacious mish-mash of several styles. As [...]
With less than a week to go until the election, the Conservatives and Labour are tied in the latest ComRes telephone poll for the Independent on Sunday and the Sunday Mirror.
Both are on 33% of the vote, having both fallen two points since the last ComRes telephone poll (for the Daily Mail on Wednesday). If [...]
We have a ComRes opinion poll in The Independent on Sunday tomorrow, shared with the Sunday Mirror. This is our only poll of the campaign, and it has been carried out by telephone instead of online, as our usual series has been.
In addition to voting intention, we asked the following questions.
From what you have seen [...]
This month we’re looking forward to leaving the unpredictable April weather behind and settling down in the snow-free garden to enjoy the book bonanza that spring brings us. First up in the picture books category is a new offering from Julia Donaldson and Nick Sharratt; What the Jackdaw Saw (Macmillan), a story of friendship and sign language written in collaboration with a group of deaf children, is a reliably bold, bright and brilliant read from the golden couple of the book world.
