Christopher Wylie: Why I broke the Facebook data story – and what should happen now

The whistleblower at the centre of the Cambridge Analytica storm asks if Britain will now address the hard issues which it has raised

In January, I told the British authorities that the app that was used to harvest data for Cambridge Analytica was likely to have pulled the profiles of British Facebook users. Last week Facebook confirmed it: it told the world that as many as 87 million profiles were collected. This included more than one million British records.

A couple of days later, early on Saturday, Facebook took another dramatic action: it suspended AggregateIQ. This is important because AIQ was the Canadian data firm on which Vote Leave spent 40% of its budget during the EU referendum. But as I told parliament, I helped set up AIQ to support Cambridge Analytica. I also handed over documents showing AIQ’s ties to Cambridge Analytica.

Antonio Banderas: ‘I don’t want to live my life like I’m already dead’
The Spanish actor went from arthouse Almodóvar films to become Hollywood’s favourite Latin lover. Now, he’s playing Picasso. He talks about art, cruelty, Catalonia and surviving after a heart attack

Antonio Banderas is having a hard day at the office: he has just died. He has wrapped one of the last days of shooting in Budapest for Genius: Picasso, the new series in which he plays the Spanish artist. Today, he shot Picasso’s death in 1973 at his hilltop villa in Notre Dame de Vie; the house has been recreated on the outskirts of the Hungarian capital.

The wigs, makeup and prosthetics that transformed him into a 91-year-old have been removed. To become Picasso, his face had to be a blank canvas. His head was shaved, as were his eyebrows. “I’m very tired,” he says, looking like the world’s most glamorous Mr Potato Head. “But being tired is my natural state; I operate and do my life there, in that department.”

A stag night used to mean a few drinks down the pub. Now it’s a test of masculinity fuelled by cheap airfares and alcohol. Sirin Kale hears about those who lost so much more than just a night’s memories

Returning to his Ibizan hotel room, the stag notices that his best man is missing. Mike Rutter last saw Luke Rhoden when he put him to bed, after Rhoden suffered an adverse reaction to cocaine and ecstasy. Rhoden’s bed has been made. His shoes are lined up. Knowing instantly that something is wrong, Rutter begins calling his friend. As the call disconnects, Rutter turns around and sees the hotel manager standing in the doorway. His stomach rolls away from him, bouncing like a coin down Balearic cobblestones.

“The last thing I said to him,” Rutter tells me, “was ‘Go to bed and sleep. If you need me, ring me.’ So that was the last time… yeah.” He trails off.

James Comey treads fine line as book set to turn up heat on Trump

The former FBI director’s book tour to promote A Higher Loyalty is likely to fuel claims that the president obstructed justice but will also put his own actions under scrutiny

At 6ft 8in tall, James Comey is hard to miss. But two days after the inauguration of Donald Trump, Comey, then director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, tried to hide from the president at a White House reception, by standing in front of blue drapery that matched his blazer, he later told a friend.

Canary Wharf: life in the shadow of the towers | Jane Martinson

Its skyscrapers are now a dramatic, established part of London’s skyline. But 30 years ago, when the author was growing up there, Canary Wharf was a wasteland. She tracks the shifts and asks: was it worth it?

The house I lived in, growing up on London’s Isle of Dogs, was beside a huge gate and high walls – impenetrable barriers even to the naughty kids who wanted to explore the docks beyond. My friends and I remember glimpses of watery wastelands as we walked off the Thames peninsula that we all called “the Island”, on rickety bridges whose gaps and creaks featured in our nightmares.

When, 30 years ago this month, Margaret Thatcher drove the first pile for Canary Wharf and promised a land of opportunity, those high walls came down. But by the time its celebrated pyramid roof was placed on One Canada Square in 1991, Thatcher had been ousted and the London commercial property market had collapsed. It was quite possibly the worst time to launch and, within a year, Olympia and York, the company charged with making the neoliberal dream of turning redundant docks into the reality of a gleaming financial citadel, filed for bankruptcy.

Bad wine, worse food and lingering silences: my three weeks of dinner party hell

Emma Beddington is the first to admit she’s an awful host. So can she conquer her fear of dinner parties?

When I moved into my first flat, one of my earliest purchases was Nigella Lawson’s How to Eat. I was on the cusp of adulthood, and it encapsulated everything I imagined my new grown-up life would be: effortless weekend lunches, laughter and “Extravagant but still Elegant Dinner for 8” (ceviche with hot garlic potatoes, tenderest chicken, chocolate raspberry pudding cake) in the company of poets and celebrities. But 20 years later, How to Eat’s dinner party pages remain pristine, unsullied by any trace of hot garlic potato. Because dinner parties are terrifying and I am horrible at them.

I cannot be alone in this, because there is a word for the terror of dinner parties: deipnophobia. Whether I am a true deipnophobe, or simply a deipno-failure, this much I know: I am a rotten hostess. Something about that combination of performative cooking and social exposure brings out the very worst in me: I become a worrier, a hoverer and a taker of offence; the opposite of a good host, even though, as Nigella wisely says: “You’re making people feel welcome in your house; you’re not putting on a show.”

Almost all violent extremists share one thing: their gender

Most people who commit acts of terrorist violence are young men. We overlook their gender to our peril

According to an ever-growing number of young men in Europe, the United States and across the Muslim world, we are at the beginning of a war. And no one knows how it will end.

To me, what is interesting in the paragraph you just read is not the indeterminacy of the outcome. All crises are like that. No, it is the fact that “ever-growing number of young men” probably does not seem notable to most readers.

The British jazz explosion: meet the musicians rewriting the rulebook

The UK is home to a diverse, collaborative and newly confident jazz scene. We meet seven musicians whose innovative sounds are liberating the genre for new audiences

Every so often, British jazz pops its head above the parapet, gets a Mercury nomination, and has a noodle on telly to remind everyone that it’s still there, like it’s always been, parping away from mainstream view. For many of us, jazz has seemed like something other people listened to. But in the past few years, the genre has had a serious overhaul. When Kendrick Lamar released his landmark album To Pimp a Butterfly in 2015, one of its most extraordinary aspects was its liberal use of jazz, which dovetailed with hip-hop and opened it up for a new generation. Not only did it immediately feel more accessible but, played by the likes of strikingly cosmic characters such as Thundercat and Kamasi Washington, it looked commandingly cool.

In the UK, a new and thrilling jazz movement has evolved. As with Lamar, Thundercat and Washington, it is born out of fresh experimentalism, is reaching far younger, more diverse audiences and doesn’t care for snootiness. Unlike in previous waves, these musicians are in their 20s and early 30s, come from diverse backgrounds and, as with grime, have created their own community outside of major labels and concert halls. Their music, meanwhile, pulls liberally from other genres, whether hip-hop, neo-soul, UK club sounds such as broken beat, or from the African and Caribbean diaspora. And it’s not just at gigs that you can hear it but, much like in the acid jazz days, nightclubs too. British DJs such as Bradley Zero and Floating Points have liberated jazz for the dancefloor to the extent that it’s now not unheard of for a 10-minute Pharaoh Sanders odyssey to be spun on the decks to an appreciative, twentysomething crowd.

Neuroscientist Gregory Berns: ‘Studying dogs is way more enjoyable than studying humans’
The US researcher on exploring the bond between dogs and humans and why animal testing needs to be questioned

Gregory Berns is a distinguished professor of neuroeconomics at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. His current work involves taking brain scans of dogs to probe what goes on between canine ears, as well as using scanning techniques to probe the connections within brains of dead animals, including the extinct Tasmanian tiger, the thylacine.

In your new book, you say a dog’s brain is about the size of a lemon…
That’s probably for a medium-size dog, like a labrador. Bigger dogs generally have bigger brains, so obviously you are not going to get a lemon inside a chihuahua’s head.

These Americans are trapped in their jobs: they need to pay $10,000 to quit | Terri Gerstein

Why would dozens of news anchors recite a Sinclair Broadcast group script? Because their contracts entrap them

Dozens of news anchors robotically intoned “This is extremely dangerous to our democracy,” after reciting what turned out to be a script by Sinclair Broadcast Group, owner and operator of 193 local TV stations. Dan Rather called it Orwellian, and many have asked in amazement: why would local journalists across the nation allow themselves to be used in such a demeaning way?

The answer is clear to me, as a lawyer with decades handling cases involving low-wage workers: people need jobs. But the anchors may have an even more specific concern: an employment contract that doesn’t just bind but entraps them.

Don’t expect the west to act on Syria’s latest horror | Matthew d’Ancona
Donald Trump has condemned Putin and Iran ‘for backing Animal Assad’ – but that’s probably as far as it goes

Conscience has become the mayfly of our era: here today, gone tomorrow. For the moment, the world is transfixed by the horrific images from Douma, near the Syrian capital, Damascus. Dozens have died, and hundreds lie injured after what was quite clearly a chemical weapon attack.

Dead children, their mouths flecked with foam, chide us through our screens. Condemnation, calls for action, a global spasm of what Martin Amis calls “species shame”: the pattern of response to the long Syrian catastrophe has become almost ritualised.

Why the UK trade deficit with the EU is woeful and widening | Larry Elliott

The single market benefits manufacturers far more than providers of services. Guess which Britain excels in

At the time it was big, big news. Three days before the general election, official figures showed that Britain’s trade had taken a marked turn for the worse. Government claims that the economy was healthy took a knock.

That was June 1970, a time when the size of Britain’s trade gap was front page stuff. Headlines screamed about the UK being back in the red. The TV news bulletins were full of it. Harold Wilson is supposed to have blamed it – along with England’s defeat by West Germany in the World Cup – for his unexpected defeat at the hands of Ted Heath the following Thursday. All this for a trade deficit of just £31m, distorted by the arrival in Britain of a couple of Boeing’s new jumbo jets.

Syria will see US price for chemical attack as worth paying | Patrick Wintour

Whether Trump opts for single retaliatory act or wider response, Assad will think he is winning

Donald Trump’s Twitter warning that a big, albeit unspecified, price will be paid for Bashar al-Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons on innocent civilians in Douma points to some form of punitive military strike being launched by western forces.

The tweet is all the more remarkable for containing some of Trump’s first direct criticism of Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, and his role in protecting Assad.

If the Spanish want a scrap, the Scots will be only too happy to oblige them | Kevin McKenna

Madrid wants to try a Catalan academic for sedition, but Scotland won’t let her go without a fight. It’s in the blood

Something in Scotland’s DNA seems to dictate that in the field of human conflict – and unlike the Swiss – our role is not to “haud the jaickets”. The words of Dr Vernon Johns, mentor to Dr Martin Luther King, should be emblazoned on the walls of those airport walkways bringing visitors to Scotland: “If you see a good fight, get in it.” I harbour no particular animosity towards Switzerland but have often wondered how a country can remain “neutral” when the foul forces of Nazism are brutalising countries all around it.

Not that “neutrality” prevented Switzerland from providing a safe landing for looted Nazi gold. Indeed, the more I think about it the more I find that I do harbour quite a lot of animosity towards the Swiss state. They must look at Scotland and say: “What a shower of delinquents.” This pleases me. For Scotland, neutrality is an alien concept. When we see a fight we do indeed “get in it”. We also like to export our aggression.

Minimal scents smell of nothing but hypocrisy | David Mitchell

The trend for undetectable perfume and no-makeup makeup conceals a minefield of vanity and self-delusion

There are two types of cosmetics, in my analysis. Lipstick and mascara. Oh, and blusher. Hang on: and powder and eyeliner and moisturiser and perfume and hairspray. Blimey, there are loads. And styling mousse and hair dye and spray tan and unnecessary surgery. Do shaving products count? Maybe. Hats? No. Even tiny, sparkly impractical hats that don’t keep the rain off? Fascinators and tiaras and coronets and the like? No, I think we’re entering the realm of clothes and jewellery. What about stick-on sequins? And moustache wax? I’m thinking of changing my look.

But there are, I still think, two types of cosmetics. You can remember it like diabetes: type one is naturally occurring and type two is something you’ve clearly done to yourself. Except, obviously, nothing is naturally occurring in the field of cosmetics. So type one is what appears to be naturally occurring (ie a lie) and type two is the open truth. Concealer on the one hand, painted nails on the other. Or actually on both, as a rule.

The Masters 2018: final round – live!

Casey pulls his tee shot at 16 into the bunker between the water and the green on the left. He’ll have quite a splash out of sand, with little dancefloor to work with. All of a sudden, that 63 doesn’t look so simple. Back on 5, Rory’s ball is nestling against the first cut. He doesn’t connect well, and leaves his second short of the green. That’ll be a test to save par. Reed comes up short too, from the middle of the fairway, but at least he’s on the green. And Spieth will surely make birdie on 8 after wedging his third to a couple of feet. He’ll move to -9. He’ll be four under for his round today ... and suddenly only five off the lead. With Reed and McIlroy looking nervous ... well, you never know. The 2015 champion is in the mix now!

McIlroy sends another drive out to the right, this time at 5. He just about holds the fairway. Reed splits it. Up the hole, Fowler balloons his second through the green, then nearly chips back through it. He’s left with a long two putts for bogey, and does very well to make it. He drops back to -8, though it could have been worse. His partner Rahm also makes a two-putt from distance, but his is for par. He stays at -9.

Sebastian Vettel wins in Bahrain after Kimi Raikkonen runs over mechanic
• German driver holds of Valtteri Bottas despite deteriorating tyres
• Mechanic taken to hospital after pit-lane collision with Raikkonen’s car

Sebastian Vettel won the Bahrain Grand Prix from pole after a tense tactical battle with Mercedes, who had tried an alternate strategy to take the fight to their rivals but which ultimately proved unsuccessful. Valtteri Bottas was second, with Lewis Hamilton making a fine recovery drive from ninth on the grid to claim third place. The British driver and his team might have been hopeful of going for the win but Ferrari’s decision to take a chance and switch to a one-stop strategy mid-race proved inspired and remarkably successful in Vettel’s hands as he skilfully nursed his worn tyres to the take the flag.

However, Ferrari’s success was overshadowed by Kimi Raikkonen’s collision with a mechanic during a pit stop on lap 36. Raikkonen was given the signal to leave the pits when only three of his tyres had been replaced. As the Finn pulled away, he collided with the mechanic who suffered a leg injury and was subsequently rushed to hospital, while Raikkonen retired from the race.

Michael Goolaerts’s condition ‘very worrying’ after CPR treatment at Paris-Roubaix
• Goolaerts taken to Lille hospital after crash, says race director
• Peter Sagan beats Silvan Dillier in a sprint finish to win race

The world champion Peter Sagan timed his effort perfectly to become the first rider since 1981 to claim the Paris-Roubaix with the rainbow jersey on his shoulders as he tamed his rivals in awe-inspiring fashion on Sunday.

However, Sagan’s win was overshadowed by a crash involving the Belgian rider Michael Goolaerts, who was taken to a hospital after receiving CPR treatment on the side of the road. His situation remains “very worrying”, the race director Christian Prudhomme said on Sunday.

Javier Hernández dents Chelsea’s top-four hopes as West Ham spy safety

The life of Ray Wilkins had been celebrated with gusto in this arena prior to kick-off, his death marked with the banners in the stands and flowers and a vintage No 8 shirt placed on the assistant manager’s seat in the home dugout. Both sets of fans had warmed to glimpses of the former Chelsea midfielder turned coach in action, clips that spanned eras beamed out over the big screens at either end of the ground, with West Ham’s support bellowing out their own admiration in unison.

The tributes were heartfelt and fitting. So it was to the 2016-17 champions’ exasperation that their side could not then produce the victory that would have so thrilled Wilkins from his seat just in front of the pressbox. The season-ticket holder would have rejoiced in some of his favourites’ attacking play, particularly when they were dominant through a one-sided opening period, and might have enjoyed the frantic intensity of the last quarter-hour once the visitors had plucked parity from nowhere. But, in reality, he would have cursed the fact Chelsea’s campaign is petering out in frustration.

Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck atones for horror miss and sinks Southampton

It was a game of great saves and awful defending, of fine attacking play and gripping twists in the narrative, and there was a redemptive ending for the enduring frustration that is Danny Welbeck. The drama was relentless and for neutrals there was the bonus of seeing the contest descend into chaos after Jack Wilshere’s clash with Jack Stephens in added time.

Yet Southampton departed with an empty feeling. They had teased their supporters with the rarity of a Shane Long goal and their pursuit of an equaliser during the second half had yielded a reward when Charlie Austin, who had entered the fray moments earlier, cancelled out Arsenal’s lead with his first touch in the 73rd minute.

Visually impaired and aged 71, meet the athlete bowling over rivals

Despite her age, Sue Curran is a relative newcomer to the sport of lawn bowls, yet she is already competing at her second Commonwealth Games

At 71, Sue Curran is the oldest woman competing at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. She is also visually impaired and a member of New Zealand’s “Blind Jacks” lawn bowls team. Despite her age, however, Curran claims she is the “youngest” bowler in the team.

“The youngest bowler by age is 22, but she has been playing for about 10 years,” she clarifies. “So I’m the youngest, or least experienced member of the team.”

Jupp Heynckes’s return made Bayern into slick champions once again
The 72-year-old has turned Bayern Munich around since returning as manager by using a trusted formula to win their six consecutive Bundesliga title

For Bayern Munich, Mia san Mia – the Bavarian dialect and the club’s motto, a slogan for their unerring unity – became Mia san Meister, commonplace these days, after they racked up their sixth successive Bundesliga title. The cries of campeones, that could be heard from inside a throbbing away dressing room at the Augsburg Arena and the conga, led by Juan Bernat and Rafinha, that snaked around the pitch, in front of those delirious supporters cherishing another domestic crown, are the fruits of another season that, for a club defined by trophies, is only just starting.

In-house, however, celebrations were purposely low-key. The players embraced, enjoyed a post-match (non-alcoholic) beer, according to Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, or two, but, generally, this was a brief kind of bliss, more so a nod to having scribbled a tick in the box. Yes, they boogied to Billie Jean and Stayin’ Alive and they clearly enjoyed the occasion, cradling a championship shield made of cardboard, without prolonging the party.

Can it Happen Here? review: urgent studies in rise of authoritarian America

Cass Sunstein’s collection of essays shows Republican-led decay of US democracy predates Trump – and may be irreversible after him

The 17 thinkers who have contributed to this new collection of essays come down firmly on all sides of its central question: is the United States destined to become an authoritarian state? Multiple points of view are expressed by the book’s editor, Cass Sunstein, alone.

In his introduction, Sunstein writes: “My own summary of this book: Absolutely. It has happened before. It will happen again. To many Americans something like it is happening now.”

John Krasinski: ‘I was never a horror movie guy - I was just too scared’
The actor-writer-director confronted his fears for his new chiller A Quiet Place, co-starring his wife, Emily Blunt

Nepotism alert: John Krasinski, the 38-year-old actor-writer-director, discovered the co-star of his new film, A Quiet Place, sitting next to him on the sofa. To be fair, though, the American’s wife is Emily Blunt, the Bafta and Golden Globe-winning British acor. A smart, stylish horror flick, A Quiet Place is Krasinski’s third film as a director, but he is best known for an eight-year stint as Jim Halpert in the US version of The Office. He and Blunt live in New York with their two daughters, aged four and one.

A Quiet Place has a clever, innovative premise: the Alien-style monsters can’t see but have exceptional hearing, so the humans in the film have to be almost wordless. Are you someone who knows and loves horror films?
No. Completely the opposite, which is crazy. I never was a big horror guy, because I was just too scared. That’s the truth. Then these producers called me one day and said: “Would you ever act in a horror movie?” I said: “I don’t know, I’m kind of a scaredy cat, but if it’s a cool idea maybe.” And they said: “Well, the idea is that this family can’t make any noise and you have to figure out why.” And I thought: “That’s as good a one-liner as you can get.”

The strange alliance between #MeToo and the anti-porn movement

The sexual objectification of women has liberal feminists and conservative anti-porn crusaders talking about the same issues – but are they fighting the same fight?

The #MeToo movement means many things to many people, but for anti-porn activists it’s the ultimate vindication.

The moment has been a long time coming for religious conservatives at war with what they see as America’s culture of sexual objectification. Many see social media-fueled outpouring as a much-needed referendum on a culture that reduces a woman’s worth to her sex appeal.

120 Beats Per Minute review – fury meets ecstasy in the face of the Aids crisis

French director Robin Campillo succeeds in uniting personal and political to electrifying effect

A two-hour historical drama about gay activism in the late 1980s/early 1990s – with subtitles! – might sound like a hard sell, but French writer-director Robin Campillo’s 120 Beats Per Minute is also a deep house opera, an urgent, steamy love story and a jubilant battle cry that demands to be witnessed. Centring on the activist group Act Up-Paris, an offshoot of the Aids Coalition to Unleash Power that started in New York in 1987, it serves as a snapshot of those who resisted in the early days of the disease’s global pandemic. The film lives its “politics in the first person”, showing how Act Up lobbied for legislation, research and treatment for those with HIV/Aids, while also tracking a tender romance between two of its members.

Campillo places the viewer bang in the middle of the Act Up community, staging one of the first scenes at an introductory meeting. Like the new recruits, we learn the organising principles (and the rules) from the inside. Fresh from a demonstration, members wearing fake-blood-splattered T-shirts explain that – in this lecture hall – democracy means transparency. There will be no clapping (just clicking) so as not to drown out those speaking, and all debate will take place in the room (private conversations and hallway chatter are prohibited).

I dump my girlfriends after 18 months. What am I so scared of? | Dear Mariella

It’s about time you worked out what it is you want in life, says Mariella. But the onus is on you to conduct yourself with decency

The dilemma I have an unhealthy habit of starting relationships with women, reaching about the 18-month mark and then fleeing. The first 12 months are always amazing and then I start to grow bored. I’ve just broken up with a woman I love, because I was too scared to commit to the idea of spending the rest of my life with her. I had a one-night stand about a month before we broke up, which I used to justify the end of our relationship. She is heartbroken and I feel terrible. I just want her to be happy, but I think she still loves me. Is it worth trying to patch our relationship up and change my mindset? If not, how can I help my ex move on? I’m scared I will continue this cycle of infatuation, romance and break-up until I’m too old, and only then will I finally settle for someone.

Mariella replies If only you were unique. It’s been nearly two decades since I last voyaged in the dating world, but your letter suggests things haven’t changed much. There still appears to exist a clear dividing line between those genuinely engaged in the search for a compatible partner and those for whom that connection is something to flee in fear. We’re conditioned to believe that the normal thing to do is to embrace longevity, gaining pleasure from familiarity and the liberation from the partner hunt. But there are plenty who thrive on the adrenaline of the chase and the delight of discovery, losing interest once heightened emotions pale. You appear to be firmly in the latter camp among those, particularly under 40, who are allergic to any form of routine or commitment.

I never took my mental health for granted – now I’m reaping the rewards

Because of our history, there has never been a stigma in my family about seeking help from an expert, including a psychotherapist, a life coach and a hypnotherapist

The word “antidepressants” was part of my vocabulary before I was 10. A number of adults in my family, including my mum, were long-term takers. From a young age, I knew what Prozac was and remember playing with the boxes of St John’s Wort tablets that were stacked by the telephone. An elderly aunt had been sectioned in Ireland decades earlier – and remained incarcerated until her death – for what, these days, would probably be diagnosed as bipolar disorder and treated far more sensitively.

“All the females in our family are crazy,” my father has always tenderly joked, even telling my serious boyfriends when I brought them home. It would have been funnier if there wasn’t a lot of truth in the statement. It’s an interesting situation when you grow up with the knowledge that mental illness runs in your family – especially the women. Wondering if every down day, every rough patch could be something else entirely – the beginning of your psychological inheritance.

‘Azzedine Alaïa couldn’t give a damn what other people said was the new mood’
Ahead of the first UK solo exhibition of the couturier’s work, former colleague Sophie Hicks remembers his exacting pursuit of fashion perfection

I think the new Azzedine Alaïa exhibition at the Design Museum could have the same impact on fashion students that Sensation at the Royal Academy had on arts students in 1997. Azzedine, who died last November, isn’t particularly well known in England – he was very much Paris-based – so it should be a revelation for young people who haven’t seen his work.

I first became aware of Azzedine in 1981 or 82, when I was working as a fashion editor for British Vogue. We were tipped off about an interesting designer in Paris and a few of us from the magazine went to see his show. It was at his apartment in the 7th arrondissement and the catwalk was just the parquet floor with little chairs lined up on either side. I remember we were kept waiting a long time. Suddenly, there was this loud clap and the American model Janice Dickinson appeared, followed by 10 or 20 of the most beautiful women in the world.

Smart ideas times two: a home that marries old and new

Affordable designer touches give this London flat a distinctive edge

Dean Louw and Rafael Borrego are partners in life as well as business, which means spending a certain amount of time together. “It was 24 hours a day, which took a bit of adjusting to,” Dean says, in the living room of the flat the couple share in Stockwell, south London. He’s sitting on a Saba dining chair, at a large round table he and Raf made themselves, using legs from Pretty Pegs and a piece of glass-topped stained oak. “You have to respect each other, and learn not to tread on each other’s toes.”

They now have a son, which means that one of them has to stay home while the other goes to the gym. The 24 hours have been brought down to a more manageable 23.

Dozens killed in suspected chemical attack on Syrian rebel enclave

Rescuers say 42 people killed and hundreds injured in what medics describe as toxic gas attack

Dozens of people have been killed in what local medics said was a toxic gas attack on the besieged town of Douma near Damascus. Videos and images showed bodies of dead children and other family members, some foaming at the mouth.

Rescue workers said the attack led directly to the deaths of at least 42 people, with hundreds of injured showing symptoms they said were consistent with exposure to an organophosphorus compound.

'Every parent's nightmare': Canada in grief after 15 die in hockey team bus crash

Cause of collision between Humboldt Broncos’ bus and truck remains unknown as PM Justin Trudeau says ‘entire country is in shock’

Two dead after vehicle hits crowd in Münster, Germany

Driver also dead after shooting himself after incident in historic part of German city, which also left 20 people injured

Two people were killed and about 30 injured after a van drove into a crowd in the western German city of Münster. The driver of the vehicle, who had not yet been officially identified on Saturday night, also died after shooting himself at the scene. Authorities have said that there is no indication that it was an Islamist attack.

State interior minister Herbet Reuel said that investigators believe the perpetrator is a German citizen. Local media reported that he was someone with mental health problems. No one else was being sought in connection with the incident. The online edition of Der Spiegel magazine said that German authorities were “assuming” that the incident was an act of terrorism, although there was no immediate official confirmation of this.

'A daft waste of time': Labour pours scorn on new centrist party

John McDonnell and other senior figures dismiss plans for movement said to have secured £50m

Senior figures in the Labour party including John McDonnell have poured scorn on plans for a new centrist political party that is said to have secured £50m from financial backers, including the multimillionaire founder of LoveFilm.

The movement, spearheaded by the former Labour donor Simon Franks and revealed by the Observer, has been secretly under development for more than a year and involves entrepreneurs, philanthropists and benefactors keen to break the Westminster mould.

Inside Gaza: ‘these are people with nothing to lose’

A Palestinian video journalist was among the nine people killed during the ‘Great March of Return’

Hashem Zakout should have been at his local hospital yesterday doing the voluntary work as a clerk that he hopes will lead to a paid full-time job. Instead the 24-year-old was a patient in the emergency room at another northern Gaza hospital, shot in the left knee after throwing “little stones” at Israeli troops across the border, east of the Jabaliya refugee camp where he lives.

Zakout was wounded on Friday when he was 10 metres from the border fence, hit by a sniper during the latest mass protests at the divide between Israel and Gaza. The “Great March of Return”, a series of protests intended to continue until 15 May, the 70th annual commemoration of “the Nakba” or catastrophe, when 700,000 Palestinian refugees were forced from their homes in the 1948 war, has captured his imagination.

The town that breeds resistance to Malaria drugs

As new waves of the disease threaten the globe, worried scientists want to conduct a mass inoculation in a Cambodian region where new vaccines always seem to stop being effective

Pailin is a small settlement nestling in tropical rainforest near Cambodia’s border with Thailand. It is an unassuming town that lies at the centre of one of the country’s main logging areas. Pailin harbours secrets, however. It was in this town, in the late 1970s, that the Khmer Rouge set up one of its main strongholds and ruled Cambodia with a ferocity that caused at least two million deaths. It is a grim legacy, by any standards.

But Pailin has another unwanted claim to fame, one that is also associated with widespread death. The town, it transpires, lies at the heart of a region that has seen successive waves of resistance to malaria drugs arise in local people and then spread across the globe. The resulting death tolls can be measured in millions of lives, say scientists.

'Grandad, I’ve got this homework essay on the ?first world ?war'

Historian Clifford Williams, whose grandfather fought at the Battle of Amiens, is travelling to France for a service in memory of the decisive conflict

It was a schoolboy history assignment half a century ago that led Clifford Williams to first ask his grandfather about “the war”.

Albert Williams, then 84 and a retired builder, had joined the Royal Engineers in 1914 and transferred to the Tank corps in 1918 where in France in August he took part in fighting around Querrieu Wood on the first day of the Battle of Amiens.

What awaits England fans at the World Cup in Russia?

Memories of violence at Euro 2016 are still fresh – but do fans and experts believe the hooligan threat is real?

In a Moscow pub decorated with British football memorabilia, a Russian supporter of local side CSKA was happy last week to reassure English fans planning to travel to this summer’s World Cup. Konstantin, or Kostya for short, says he doubts there will be violence because the toughest Russian hooligans have already lost their taste for fighting England supporters.

“It’s like being a mountain climber,” said Kostya, a member of one of the Russian capital’s prominent CSKA “firms”, after recalling how a group of Russian fans smashed through a contingent of English fans in Marseille in June 2016, using extreme violence. “Once you’ve reached the summit, you don’t do it again. There’s no point in beating them again. So they don’t have to be afraid to come to Russia, nothing’s going to happen.”

Isao Takahata obituary
One of the key figures in Japanese animation who co-founded the internationally renowned Studio Ghibli

For more than 50 years, Isao Takahata, who has died aged 82, played an instrumental role in forging the international reputation of Japanese animation. He was one of the two key figures behind Japan’s leading animation house, Studio Ghibli, which he co-founded in 1985 alongside Hayao Miyazaki, and the director of such poignant works as the antiwar film Grave of the Fireflies (1988) and the Academy award-nominated The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2013), based on a 10th-century folktale and realised in a style influenced by traditional Japanese ink-wash painting.

Yet in contrast to the freewheeling and design-based approach of his more prolific colleague, Takahata never put so much as a pen to paper during the animation process. Nonetheless his sophisticated, character-driven animations explored a diverse range of themes and aesthetic styles, often confounding expectations as to what was possible within the medium. Grave of the Fireflies presented an emotionally harrowing account of a young brother and sister left to fend for themselves at the tail end of the war after their mother is killed in an allied bombing raid.

Eat a falafel, save a life – have I found the only pop-up that deserves to stay popped up? | Rhik Samadder

Chef Imad Alarnab has brought his Syrian Kitchen to London, making it possible for me to do my bit by stuffing my face

Because I am a desiccated old prune in a young man’s body, pop-ups have always been businesses I don’t understand, run by people I don’t like. Harbingers of gentrification. Often, a way for big brands to show how spontaneous and funky they are, bro, while testing out a new revenue stream, and capitalising on cultural trends. Even the word is annoying. Pop-up. Like a book for people who don’t like books, or a freaky toy in a horror film. You know what else pops up? A rash.

Then I was invited to a supper club run by a refugee – Imad’s Choose Love Syrian Kitchen, which demonstrated the flexible, responsive advantages of pop-ups so convincingly, I changed my mind about everything I previously thought. It happens a lot. “I took a wrong turning on the way, because I was cold,” I say to Imad Alarnab, a man who escaped bombing, and made his way to this country through nine others, sometimes on foot. Luckily, he is a large, warm man who laughs a lot. Alarnab was a star chef in Damascus, owner of three restaurants, as well as juice bars and cafes. His “almost perfect” life was made less perfect by the arrival of civil war, but now that he is here, he wants to help those left behind. The proceeds from this weekly event, run with the charity Help for Refugees, directly fund Hope Hospital, a paediatric facility and the only hospital in northern Aleppo. The hospital will close in one month without the support. Never has the phrase “Can we have the bill” seemed so fraught.

Madagascar's vanilla wars: prized spice drives death and deforestation

As the price of pods has soared so has violence – and forest defenders are increasingly risking their lives to protect precious wildlife habitat from being felled for profit

The vanilla thieves of Anjahana were so confident of their power to intimidate farmers they provided advance warning of raids. “We are coming tonight,” they would write in a note pushed under doors in this remote coastal village in Madagascar. “Prepare what we want.”

But they either undervalued their target commodity or overestimated the meekness of their victims. After one assault too many at the turn of the year, a crowd rounded up five alleged gangsters, dragged them into the village square and then set about the bloody task of mob justice.

Keep off our land, indigenous women tell Ecuador's president

Women’s movement demand an end to unrestricted oil drilling and mining on indigenous lands and action on violence against land defenders in first meeting with president Lenin Moreno

Amazon indigenous women leaders have told Ecuador’s president Lenin Moreno to limit oil drilling and mining in their territories and combat the sexual violence and death threats they claim accompany the industries.

The delegation of women dressed in traditional tunics and with intricately painted faces were granted a meeting with Moreno after nearly 100 of them camped in Quito’s central plaza in front of the Carondelet government palace for five days, earlier this month.

The mane attraction: hair-tossing horses – in pictures

“Horses can be hilarious!” says German photographer Wiebke Haas. “It’s my greatest passion to tease out nearly human expressions from them.” She has turned this passion into a delightful series called Horsestyle (shortlisted for a 2018 Sony World Photography award) featuring stallion Pauli with his lovely Elvis lip-curl, and Linus with a big, bouncy mane to rival Farrah Fawcett’s.

Haas grew up around animals, which perhaps explains why her horses look so at ease. “The most difficult part was to keep them straight to the camera,” she says. Her secret? Horse goodies and the occasional “tickle in the ear”.

The 2018 Sony World Photography Awards winners will be announced on 19 April
