It's a year this week since Britain plunged into the most drastic restrictions on everyday life since the Second World War. Lockdown and furlough were words that had barely entered our vocabulary. For days, even weeks, Boris Johnson resisted shutting down the country even as closures were spreading in Europe. He did not even attend his first COBRA meeting until March 2, after missing all those in the earlier part of 2020. In some ways, hindsight is a wonderful thing. Now, of course, we know the virus was spreading much more quickly than the government thought, because so many people did not have symptoms. It was large parts of society, not just the government, that were caught off-guard, and Boris Johnson insisted he was following the science.

Scientists have since said locking down earlier could have saved many thousands of lives. Here we look … [Read more...] about Covid lockdown a year on: How March 2020 went from complacency to chaos, day by day
Cara Delevingne has added another title to her prolific CV, going from model to actor, to writer, and now musician. It has been a common career trajectory for those in the entertainment industry for decades, with many showbiz stars navigating freely between modelling, acting and singing. Jennifer Lopez did it. Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift did it. I'm still confused as to whether to call Jared Leto an actor or a singer - and I'm sure I've seen him modelling for Gucci. While some of these beautiful, prolific stars manage to excel, or at least deliver, in everything they seek to accomplish, there are others who would be better sticking to what they know. In Luc Besson's latest comic book fiasco Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, the French director cast Delevingne and Rihanna - two very familiar faces with very little training.
