Like Brexit, the idea peddles a delicious slice of half-remembered nostalgia; of unlocked doors, clean steps and summer-long den-building
I like to imagine two of these women, in Huddersfield, right this moment, clad in Union Jack mini-dresses bought off eBay, with home highlights, spam arms and flinty eyes, currently penning a pithy protest song for their YouTube channel rhyming ‘Evil, stupid Pinnegar’ with ‘Give us back our salt ’n’ vinegar’
YouTube helped in no small part to create these gremlins. If PewDiePie is now saying vocally – which he does in his last video – that he could run YouTube better than the powers that be can and he’s on the verge of pressing delete on his account, then this mutiny was always in the making
As if encouraging voters with no previous distinct leaning to root for characters they’ve become familiar with in reality shows has not caused enough trouble in 2016 already? Trump’s time on The Apprentice cajoled a nation into believing he really does have the answers for everything
Didn’t the model Karlie Kloss end up in a furious debacle over a thong and a head-dress at the Victoria’s Secret runway show? Mmm… something about Pharrell Williams in Elle magazine? Hang on, haven’t the Washington Redskins been begged furiously to change their name of late?
In a regular, stable relationship, these findings could be revolutionary. Of course, for Tinder-style bang and run hook-ups, I would advise both sexes to steer away from any contraceptive that they cannot touch, peel and roll on with their own hands
It’s weird to ask Clinton and Trump to bicker viciously on Wednesday over who needs to be jailed and who is a sexual predator and then follow it up with an annual Catholic fundraiser dinner for needy children
The terrifying thing is many of us thought we’d seen the back of the likes of Melania. But her type is back, draped over American politics like a bikini model at a Birmingham NEC car show
After her marriage to Jay-Z, the singer prefers to be addressed as ‘Mrs Carter’
Yes, the job is an enormous pain in the arse. But if all of these things are unthinkable for the British sensibility, why are we comfortable for it all to be happening each and every day to Bulgarians?
October also sees the start of Black History Month, an opportunity for Caucasian 20-something eternal students with names like Crispin Bunter-Wilmthorpe to handcuff themselves to the gates of Chessington World of Adventures after taking exception to the shocking level of cultural appropriation in the Penguins of Madagascar Treetop Hoppers ride
Believing in the innate empathetic, harmonious nature of all women is like believing all gay men will, when push comes to shove, be able to help you with interior design. At best you’re an idiot and at worse a completely offensive one
Margaret Thatcher made her most far-reaching decisions on only four hours’ sleep – and sometimes it showed
Last time I looked Nicola Sturgeon was flying all over the globe negotiating with world leaders, earning a mint, looking her slimmest self and living - what the kids call - her best life ever
The Labour leader is suggesting a ban on sexist after-work drinking. But how on earth do we police that? Should all after-work groups, by law, contain at least two women or at least one gender fluid person identifying as female?
'The Matter of The North’ comes at a time when London has adored itself to a point of near self-destruction
