After the YouGov and Panelbase opinion polls on Sunday, there were still straws at which those who want to keep the union could clutch. We could not say it was “just one poll”, but we could say that it was “just one polling company”, namely YouGov, that had showed support for a Yes vote surging.
I often wonder what people really want from Victoria Beckham’s label. In fact, that’s rubbish. I know exactly what they want. Shall we be blunt? They want her to fall spectacularly, sensationally flat on her face. They’ve been wanting her to do it since day one, because Beckham has it all and the fashion world loves a bit of schadenfreude.

New York Fashion Week is a nice way to start the season, for very cynical reasons. There are lots of shows, and few new ideas.

Leicester based post rock five-piece Maybeshewill have been making glorious majestic cinematic music, whilst keeping their modus operandi as DIY as possible, since 2005. Now, with the release of their fourth album, Fair Youth, they’re taking their first tentative steps into the mainstream.

After the stunning kitchen garden at my Aunty Liz and Uncle Tom’s Baltic-side bolthole in Finland last week, back to a bump in Blighty and the overgrown paths at Plot 35a. Actually, I only left the plot for a week, not two as I usually do for a summer holiday, and popped up there before [...]
