Six months ago the former office block in Via Curtatone, overlooking Piazza Indipendenza in central Rome, became a flashpoint of Italy’s migrant crisis when police evicted the 800 Eritrean and Ethiopian refugees who had been living there for four years.

Three Billboards triumphs as Time's Up dominates the 2018 Baftas

Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy-drama takes home five awards in ceremony hosted for the first time by Joanna Lumley

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the bleak, bitter, blistering comedy about injustice in small-town America, took the major honours at the 2018 Bafta film awards on Sunday night.

It was a starry, glamorous ceremony, at which the sexual-harassment shame of the film industry and the the subsequent Time’s Up movement were ever present.

Grief, shock, reflection: the delicate task of reporting on a school shooting

A journalist and the father of a Florida shooting survivor discuss hard questions in the aftermath of tragedy, and how soon is too soon to talk about gun control

On Wednesday evening, just hours after the Parkland school shooting had claimed the lives of 17 people, students who had evacuated were sent to a nearby hotel to reunite with their families.

Benazir Bhutto showed you can be a mother and prime minister – I know, I am her son

After Jacinda Ardern announced her pregnancy, some questioned how she would cope. They should look at Pakistan’s late leader

The news about Jacinda Ardern struck a nerve with my sisters and I. It is indeed uplifting to see the world rejoice at her good fortune.

While there are the detractors and naysayers, the barrage of good wishes, the #knitforJacinda campaign and countless other little gestures, has been overwhelmingly positive.

From ER to The Sopranos: what were the most shocking TV deaths?

Run ins with household appliances and mob hits have all claimed well-loved TV characters, but the most affecting deaths often came out of the blue

  • Spoiler alert: this article contains spoilers for every show mentioned

The killer Crock-Pot, from This Is Us, is not the first time a kitchen appliance has been complicit in bumping off a TV character. Remember poor Helen Flynn from Spooks? In 2002, the headlong BBC spy caper was in such a hurry to establish the high-wire stakes of its morally compromised world that Lisa Faulkner’s keen-as-mustard MI5 rookie turned out to be a lot more expendable than her prominent billing suggested. While catfishing an unctuous rightwing moneybags suspected of orchestrating race riots, Helen was captured and horrifically tortured – her hand, then face plunged into a grotty, hissing deep fat fryer. Helen was then briskly executed with a headshot. In episode two! Functioning as both a shocking twist and rather callous statement that No-One Is Safe, it gave the slick drama an instant patina of edginess while generating a record-breaking number of complaints.

How to deal with office politics

It all boils down to human emotion, says Sharmadean Reid

Ugh, navigating office politics is the worst. Every day millions of people are prevented from doing their jobs effectively because they have to be constantly on guard about what they do or say.

Getting on with colleagues all boils down to human emotion. I often think back to the scene in Clueless when Cher realises she’s getting bad grades because her teacher is lonely and miserable. Instead of trying to talk her teacher into giving her better grades, she hooks him up with another teacher; they get married and everyone gets good grades! It all comes back to people needing to feel appreciated and loved.

Are we poisoning our children with plastic?

The chemical BPA is widely added to food and drink packaging, and more than 80% of teenagers have it in their bodies. But how dangerous is it?

Can exposure to plastics harm your health? It’s a question currently being explored by researchers after a recent study suggested that traces of a synthetic chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA) can be found in more than 80% of teenagers. BPA is added to plastic to create a special form called polycarbonate plastic, used in making robust, impact-resistant materials for everything from food and drink packaging to DVD cases and medical devices. First created in 1891, it has been used commercially since the 1950s and is now one of the most commonly produced chemicals in the world, with 3.6bn tonnes of BPA generated every year.

The problem is that BPA can be ingested or absorbed through skin contact, meaning that humans are regularly exposed through the chemical leaching out of packaging into food and drink – and over the past 20 years various studies have linked BPA to a variety of adverse health effects. The biggest concerns have been the impact on foetuses and young children, who have underdeveloped systems for detoxifying chemicals – the consequences being that the younger you are, the higher the levels of BPA in your body.

Yes, the NHS is fractured. But competition won’t heal it | Polly Toynbee

The latest NHS reorganisation has reawakened fears of privatisation. Only a Labour government can bury them once and for all

After Brexit, David Cameron’s second worst legacy is his assault on the NHS. His explosive 2012 Health and Social Care Act was designed to privatise it into small pieces, while an eight-year funding drought yields new worst ever figures every month. The wonder is that the service still treats so many so well. The number of GPs fell again last month, while graphs for nurses, emergency doctors, ambulance staff and just about everything show a relentless downward trend. Waiting times for cancer treatments rise, as do delays to treating older people’s hip fractures after falls.

The NHS is now the top cause of public anxiety, according to Ipsos Mori. Is there any good news? There is: the Institute for Fiscal Studies finds a continuing steep rise in NHS productivity, treating ever more people, far outstripping dismal overall UK productivity rates. Hold on to that fact, as the usual NHS detractors scent blood in the water, claiming the system itself is broken and needs private insurance or top-up payments.

Will fentanyl deaths be the tipping point for our broken drugs policies? | John Harris

Synthetic opioids are an escalating tragedy, but treatment for addicts doesn’t have to be a dead end

Fentanyl is the unbelievably potent opioid drug cited in the deaths of such stars as Michael Jackson, Tom Petty and Prince. Far from mansions and flash hotels, it is also the street-level heroin substitute that is at the centre of mind-boggling statistics for drug deaths across the US: about 64,000 people died from overdoses in 2016, up 21% on the previous year. Fentanyl is so toxic that even inhaling small particles can be dangerous, but for the amoral people selling it to the addicts who often use it intravenously, it has no end of advantages, starting with basic economics: whereas a kilo of heroin is said to cost $6,000 (£4,300) to produce and will sell for a few hundred thousand dollars, the respective figures for fentanyl are put at $4,000, and as much as $1.6m.

Inevitably, it is now coming to Britain. Last summer the National Crime Agency said that fentanyl had been cited in 60 deaths over the previous eight months, the majority of which had taken place in Yorkshire and the Humber. In Hull, where as many as 16 people are said to have died recently because of fentanyl overdoses, journalists found people who had been long-term heroin users who were sold batches cut with this new drug – which seemed to inspire a mixture of awe and fear. What they said was vivid, and frightening: “On a scale of one to 10, heroin is a two and fentanyl is an 11,”; “It just comatoses you and throws you to the floor”. Fentanyl and its derivatives have also been mentioned in reports from south London, Hertfordshire, Birmingham, Bristol and the Scottish borders.

Women must have the right to bare their arms without comment | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett

The remarks of Canada’s first female prime minister compound a society where women are valued above all on appearance

There is not a day that goes by where I don’t feel grateful for the fact that I am no longer embedded tit-deep in the feminist movement. Though I remain a feminist – my commitment to the cause is unaltered – it is a relief, not to mention immeasurably better for my mental health, to find myself no longer overly concerned with putting a step wrong somewhere and facing the wrath of, well, everyone. “Did you see the fallout from so-and-so’s column?” a friend who is very much still involved in the feminist media circus asked me the other day. “Nope, don’t care,” I replied. She looked at me with wonder in her eyes.

Women are so frequently pitted against each other that it feels somewhat disloyal to admit that some of the worst tearing downs to which we can be subject are often from other women – so much for sisterhood. One such example was the time my co-writer Holly Baxter and I were at a literary festival discussing the societal pressure placed upon women to adhere to certain beauty standards, when an older feminist very much of the radical variety stood up and yelled at us for having long hair and wearing dresses.

Multiple surgeries aren’t the best care for endometriosis. Ask Lena Dunham | Jason Abbott

Many people with endometriosis are being treated with surgeries that could increase pain

Thirty-one-year-old women who have not yet had the opportunity to have a family of their own should not have to make a decision to have a hysterectomy. Yet Lena Dunham, who has had a major surgery almost every second year of her adult life, felt compelled to do so. Women and girls with endometriosis may have severe disease and for many this seems like the only option. However, there are a number of issues around this situation that need clarification.

Endometriosis is a disease where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. This often means that the uterus itself is a normal and healthy organ and in fact, removing that normal and healthy organ may have little impact on a woman’s pain if the other pelvic disease is not also removed. Now there are situations where the uterus may be affected by a similar disease process called adenomyosis, and this condition may be improved by hysterectomy, or alternative and conservative treatments including hormones.

Is there any hope for truth? I went to a conference to find out | Rhik Samadder

From bot factories weaponising misinformation to Twitter trolls polluting online debate, we are all living in a fake news world – unless, it turns out, you are a teen

Have we destroyed truth? How can we live in a fake news world? When will The Experts Strike Back? To find out, I blagged my way into an academic event, looking for answers. The Future of Knowledge was hosted by Knowledge Quarter, an assembly of organisations in the King’s Cross area that includes Soas, the British Library, the British Museum and the Institute of Physics – a bit like The Avengers.

On one of the panels was historian and film-maker David Olusoga, the smartest, most miserable man I have ever heard speak. “The historian Oswald Spengler said that optimism is cowardice,” he began. He went on to draw parallels between now and the 1920s, both being characterised by a flight from reason and the rise of propaganda. Our age is different, he said, because it is worse. He is right. Social media – anonymous, empowering and narcissistic – has polluted our debates. Bot factories in Russia have weaponised misinformation, Trump edges us closer to nuclear extinction with a tweet, yet after a hard weekend hitting the Häagen-Dazs I can’t post a picture of my nipples on Instagram? I have lost track of what I was saying. That is another thing: we all have shorter attention spans.

Winter Olympics 2018: day 10 from Pyeongchang – live!

Even if you don’t know your hogline from your pebble, you’ll probably ken that curling has its roots in Scotland – and, as it turns out, so does every stone used in the Olympics. They all come from Ailsa Craig, a tiny Scottish island – find out more here or by watching above. And here’s that granite being put to good use by the British men’s team earlier on:

Coming up:

At 11am GMT (8pm local), the women’s curling continues with the ninth round of group games. Great Britain face Switzerland, realistically needing three wins from their last three games to reach the semi-finals.

The forgotten story of ... Mexico's answer to Cool Runnings

The Tames brothers’ dream of competing at the Olympics took them from Mexico City to Germany, Dallas and finally a trip to Calgary in a VW van

When Roberto Tames closes his eyes, he can still see that grainy television footage of Italian daredevil Eugenio Monti as he hurtles to a thrilling 1968 Olympic bobsleigh victory in Grenoble.

“I was four-years-old,” he says. “But even though I was very small, these athletes became my heroes. I loved watching them flying down the track. When I was seven, I got a wheel cart. I dreamed I was a bobsleigh pilot and my brothers and I would go racing down the hills of Mexico City.”

Lizzy Yarnold: inspiring kids and knitting are post-Olympics priorities

• UK’s greatest Winter Olympian ‘won’t pursue celebrity’
• Yarnold is not ruling out a tilt at third gold in 2022

It took Lizzy Yarnold four years to weave together the myriad threads required to defend her skeleton title. Yet hours after becoming Britain’s greatest Winter Olympian, not much had changed. For rather than celebrate her champagne moment with fizz, the Yarn settled down with some yarn and knitting needles.

The encouraging news for Team GB is that the 29-year-old is not planning to put her feet up just yet, despite her on/off struggles with motivation and fitness before Pyeongchang. In fact, she has left open the tantalising possibility that she might attempt to secure a third Olympic title in Beijing in four years’ time – once her battered body has enjoyed a long and recuperative rest.

Greg Clarke’s FA charm offensive in Qatar: what could possibly go right? | Barry Glendenning

The FA chairman’s trip to the 2022 World Cup host as part of a global charm offensive has left him on dubious moral ground

Given Greg Clarke’s track record in the field of diplomatic relations, the obvious question to ask upon learning the Football Association chairman was taking in Qatar as part of the organisation’s global charm offensive wasn’t so much “what could possibly go wrong?” as “what could possibly go right”?

Following his handling of the Eni Aluko racism scandal and subsequent bravura performance before a government select committee tasked with getting to the bottom of it, December saw reports that Clarke had already visited two thirds of Uefa territories as part of a global outreach programme aimed at disabusing his counterparts in assorted national football associations of the notion that the FA is arrogant.

FA Cup fifth round: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Connor Goldson and Ethan Ampadu showed their worth, Mauricio Pellegrino’s taxigate sympathy and Coventry must not be forgotten

Amid the focus on Brighton’s first quarter-final appearance for 32 years and an impressive first outing for Jürgen Locadia, Chis Hughton was keen to hail one of his team’s more unsung heroes. Connor Goldson scored a well-directed header in the first half and it was the centre-back’s first goal since returning from surgery on a heart defect, which ruled him out of the closing months of their promotion season. This was Goldson’s sixth appearance of this campaign; Hughton hoped to loan him to Ipswich in August but could not source appropriate cover and the 25-year-old, far more involved since December, is beginning to grow in stature. “Connor has earned it and everyone knows what we think about him,” Hughton said. “He has knuckled down, made a full recovery. Credit to our medical staff here in the first place.” He might just have earned himself a place in Hughton’s last-eight team at Manchester United. Nick Ames

Brazilian football match abandoned after mass brawl and nine red cards

Derby between Vitoria and Bahia called off after a punch-up between players from both sides

A Brazilian football match between Vitoria and Bahia was abandoned with 11 minutes remaining on Sunday after the hosts had six men sent off in a game marked by a mass punch-up between players from both sides.

The score in the Bahia state championship clash between the two local rivals was 1-1 when Bruno Bispo became the ninth player in all, and the fifth from Vitoria, to be shown the red card.

Real Betis 3-5 Real Madrid: La Liga – as it happened

Goodnight! I am off to rest my little fingers which have been pounding away at the keyboard after a pretty relentless 90 minutes of football in Seville.

Thanks for joining me! Until we meet again.

Both teams played in spells here tonight in Seville. Real Madrid opened the scoring while they were on top, then Real Betis had their own spell and scored twice in four minutes. After the break there was no stopping Real Madrid who scored three unanswered goals. Real Betis pulled one back before Benzema killed the game late on. What entertainment for all involved!

Why one tiny Scottish island is key to every Olympic curling stone – video

All the curling stones being used at the Pyeongchang Winter Games are made from granite mined from the tiny, uninhabited island of Ailsa Craig, in the outer Firth of Clyde. The granite is worked into the final stones by staff at Kays Curling in Mauchline, 40 miles from Ailsa Craig on the mainland. Kays has been producing top-level curling stones for more than a century. Though participation in the sport is declining in the UK, the factory is producing more stones than ever to ship overseas. In 1998 – the year the sport was given medal status at the Winter Olympics – 36 countries played the sport; today, there are 54 countries competing worldwide

Football transfer rumours: Gareth Bale and £100m for Eden Hazard?

Today’s tell-all is sweeping all before it at the curling

Eden Hazard has been persistently linked with Real Madrid and the latest reports suggest Chelsea’s playmaker with the magic dust sprinkled in his boots remains the Spanish side’s top target this summer. The Express says Real are ready to offer top-knotted Welsh winger Gareth Bale and as much as £100m in exchange for Hazard, in a deal that would surely tempt the Stamford Bridge bean-counters. “In football anything can happen,” Hazard said in an interview with Telefoot. “But in football nothing can happen too. Every year they talk about Real or PSG. And when I want to change clubs, I will. But at the moment I’m good where I am.”

Before Sunday’s draw with League One strugglers Rochdale in the FA Cup, Tottenham were linked with Watford midfielders Richarlison and Abdoulaye Doucouré and will move for the duo in a deal worth £50m next summer. Spurs are also remain keen on making a Premier League player of 18-year-old Stevenage central defender Ben Wilmot, but will have to duke it out with Arsenal in the battle for the teenager’s signature. Wilmot has established himself as a first-team regular with the League Two side since being thrown in to face Reading in the FA Cup third round and is believed to have been the subject of failed bids from both north London clubs during January. Arsenal have also made an offer for Besiktas captain Oguzhan “Ozzie” Ozyakup, a 25-year-old midfielder who is a product of the Gunners’ own youth system, leaving for Turkey in 2012.

Liam Gallagher: ‘The German police pulled my teeth out with pliers’

The former Oasis singer is up for a Brit this week and riding high with a hit solo album. He may be ‘very zen’ at the moment, but he’s still got plenty to say about everything – including an infamous 2002 bar brawl and, of course, his brother Noel. Photograph by Richard Saker

In the middle of the Highgate branch of Café Rouge on a Monday lunchtime, Liam Gallagher is re-enacting what he calls “the ding-dong”: the infamous 2002 brawl in a Munich hotel bar that led to the loss of his front teeth. We are talking about his apparently impregnable self-confidence, something that seems to mystify even him. “I dunno where it comes from,” he shrugs, “but I’ve always been a bit of an arrogant cunt, even when I was digging holes for a living in Manchester, sitting there going, ‘What the fuck am I doing here?’ Even the way I dressed to go to work digging holes was fucking cool.” I ask him whether there was ever a moment in his career where he felt startled or overawed by a situation he found himself in.

I was rather expecting some kind of celebrity-related anecdote, perhaps involving one of Gallagher’s pantheon of 60s rock idols, but no: he’s up out of his seat, miming the events that led to the cancellation of Oasis’s German tour, his arrest for bodily harm, trespassing and material damage, and a €50,000 fine. It’s quite a saga, that, in his telling at least, begins with one of Oasis’s roadies “giving some bird the fucking eye and that”, and said-lady’s amorata expressing his displeasure in no uncertain terms.

Three Billboards on the march, Paddington 2 barely registers – what we learned from the Baftas

Even if the Baftas no longer signal a shoo-in for the Oscars, Three Billboards has got its awards mojo back, while Joanna Lumley’s hosting debut was a mixed bag

After suffering a backlash over its depiction of Sam Rockwell’s racist cop character and struggling ever so slightly in the guild awards and Oscar nominations, there was the sense that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri badly needed a win. And the Baftas duly obliged, handing Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy drama awards in five categories. Not a landslide haul by any means, but impressive nevertheless given the sense that Bafta voters were otherwise spreading the wealth fairly widely. Now McDonagh and co must hope that this plum haul will convince academy voters to give the film a second look before they hand in their ballots at the end of the month. Perhaps the high-profile recent stories about the film’s titular billboards inspiring real-life protests on both sides of the pond might help in that regard: the Academy loves the idea that cinema can make a difference, after all.

Copies of Mary Shelley's original Frankenstein text to be published

Shelley spent nine months by Lake Geneva writing the story of the bringing to life of a monster

Percy Shelley’s correction of Mary Shelley’s misspelling of “igmmatic” in the notebooks in which she scrawled the story of Frankenstein – “enigmatic o you pretty Pecksie!” he wrote – will be seen in all its glory in a new facsimile of Shelley’s handwritten text to be published in March.

Shelley wrote the draft of Frankenstein in two large notebooks over nine months, after famously being challenged by Lord Byron, along with her then lover Percy Shelley, stepsister Claire Clairmont and Byron’s personal physician John Polidori, to “each write a ghost story” in the summer of 1816 by Lake Geneva. She was 18 at the time, and continued her work on the story after returning to the UK, finishing in the spring of 1817.

Irvine Welsh on Edinburgh: ‘I officially had a criminal record at eight years old’

The Trainspotting author on breaking the law, revelling in his ‘bad boy’ status and how life on a housing estate shaped his worldview

We are all formed by our early experiences, principally our family relationships and the community we grow up in. It’s like the old story of the two babies born on the same day. One gets a hug every time it cries: the other gets shouted at, or just ignored. They meet 20 years later in a bar. One of them contends: “The world is like this.” The other declares: “No, the world is like this.”

Creative artists have their own ways of dealing with experience. If you are lucky enough to be successful as a writer, I think the great paradox is that you owe where you come from absolutely everything, and at the same time nothing at all. To me, the conflicting duality of that mindset is the essence of what it’s all about.

Paul Mason: five books to understand the left

From the charge against neoliberalism to the manifesto that inspired activists to join labour – Paul Mason on the books that explain the left today

From the end of the miners’ strike to the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the left in Britain stumbled from one nadir to the next. How they made a clean sweep of Labour’s NEC elections is a process even the participants do not yet fully understand. However, one thing is certain: this was not a theory-led revolution. The ideas of the modern left were primarily born out of a new kind of practice and some undeniable facts. Neoliberalism had failed. In the survival strategies adopted by governments it has become, as the economist William Davies writes, “literally unjustified”. Davies’ book The Limits of Neoliberalism sums up the wider thinking of the UK left about the system it is trying to replace. It identifies the coercive imposition of competition by a centralised state as the core problem, and contains the most succinct definition of neoliberalism in the English language: “the disenchantment of politics by economics”.

The 2011 protest movements massively strengthened the hold of horizontalist activism. The most influential book here is the 2009 manifesto The Coming Insurrection, by the French anarchist Invisible Committee. Its key message – that the proletariat was over, that the networked human being was the agent of change – resonated strongly with the students who occupied English universities in 2010. Just like the Communist Manifesto, it was published on the eve of events it predicted but, unlike Marx’s famous text, it was widely read. More importantly, a version of its main injunction – “find each other and act” – was certainly what lay behind the surge of activists into Labour in 2015-17.

Lady Bird review – a magical portrait of adolescence

Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf are electric as warring daughter and mother in Greta Gerwig’s beautifully observed comedy-drama

In the conversations that have ushered in its theatrical release, Lady Bird has been described as Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut. Yet, with seven screenplays to her name and a co-director credit on Joe Swanberg’s 2008 mumblecore drama Nights and Weekends, it’s not as though she is new to making movies. Still, the endearing shagginess and goofy imperfection associated with Gerwig’s work in front of and behind the camera are noticeably absent in this polished, muscular, Oscar-nominated debut proper. Not a criticism exactly, but perhaps an explanation for why the film has managed to transcend its indie dramedy trappings.

Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, it centres on Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan), a high-schooler who behaves with the unselfconscious conviction of a young kid. She insists she be called by her “given” name of Lady Bird (“It was given to me, by me”), extols the benefits of bathtub masturbation to her best friend Julie while eating communion wafers (“They’re not consecrated!”) and jabs her crush in the shoulder, asking him to dance. Gerwig’s pink-haired protagonist is seemingly unencumbered by the awkwardness and fear that dogs most teenagers on the cusp of change. This cusp-ness is where the film’s magic resides; its joyful, forward-rushing narrative rhythm captures the feeling of adolescence ending before it has barely begun.

A local’s guide to Istanbul's new cool neighbourhood

In once sleepy Kadiköy-Moda, new nightlife and culture hotspots happily coexist with the district’s established restaurants and cafes

Until recently, the neighbourhood of Kadiköy-Moda, on the Asian side of Istanbul at the southern end of the Bosphorus, was an unremarkable, mostly residential place that barely registered on the city’s cultural map. Over the past few years, however, it has become an unlikely hotspot for cutting-edge bars, art and culture hubs, cafes and music venues, as well as a haven for plugged-in, liberal-minded people opposed to Turkey’s increasingly authoritarian political climate.

Does my boyfriend’s masturbation style prevent him orgasming during sex?

He ejaculates by lying face down and rubbing himself against his bed. I think this is the cause of our problems, but I don’t know how to discuss it with him

I am 17, my boyfriend is 16 and we have been together for a year. We have been having regular sex for six months and he has never orgasmed or ejaculated during sex. He told me recently that he masturbates prone (lying face down and rubbing himself against his bed) and has done so since he was about eight. I think this is the cause of his problems. How should I broach the subject of him abstaining from masturbation and maybe changing his technique?

It is not uncommon for a person to develop a masturbation style that does not easily segue to satisfactory intercourse. Your partner’s style seems to fall into this category, although it is difficult to say whether this is due to the change in position or because he is accustomed to a higher degree of friction. If his challenge is due to the former reason, ask him to experiment with different positions. Do this with erotic playfulness, rather than as a chore to correct a problem. But if he needs more friction, it is important for you to know that. Try stimulating him manually with different degrees of intensity and ask him to guide you regarding what feels best.

A rubbish way to get fit – why I loved going ‘plogging’
Around the country, joggers have taken on the Swedish-inspired social mission, combining collecting litter with their daily exertions. What’s it like?

I’ve never been much of a jogger, but might I make a decent plogger? A portmanteau word, “plogging” is a shunting together of jogging with plocka, the Swedish for “to pick”. The idea is that you pick up litter while out running and the activity has been growing in popularity in Sweden.

“It’s good for both the environment and ourselves,” says Anna Christopherson, the 43-year-old Swede who runs Edinburgh’s first plogging group. “It’s very good for the body to combine running with squatting to lift rubbish.”

Designer label Preen launches collection starting at just 65p

Catwalk label’s postage stamp collection features Finella dress worn by Duchess of Cambridge

Preen, the catwalk label designed by the husband and wife team Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi and worn by the Duchess of Cambridge and Gwyneth Paltrow, has launched London fashion week’s most affordable collection, with prices starting at just 65p.

However, the bargain buys are the size of a postage stamp – literally. A six-stamp collection celebrating 20 years of the brand has been issued by the Isle of Man, where both Thornton and Bregazzi grew up. The first-class stamp features the red Finella dress worn by the duchess on a royal tour of Canada. The bodycon “Power Dress” that first made the label famous is honoured on another of the stamps.

My husband died and my son is angry I’m in a new relationship | Dear Mariella

Mothers and sons is the greatest love story never told, says Mariella Frostrup. Stay patient but don’t stop seeing your new lover

The dilemma My husband died suddenly early last year. It has been tough for me and for my teen/20s children. We’ve worked hard to support our grief and have been close. They have lovely friends and special loves who have been wonderful and supportive – and they are OK, me too.

I have become close to someone I have known vaguely for 10 years. He is lovely and we seem to have embarked on something special. In our 50s neither of us want to fanny about and he seems willing to accept the baggage I carry (and he has some, too). I feel the same.

Ireland's border country: walking the line and in love with the landscape

Since the Brexit referendum, the Irish border has again become a source of tension but on the ground it remains a fascinating wilderness of low mountains and fantastic hiking country

Today I’m hiking from Thur Mountain to the Cavan Burren along lanes and among prehistoric relics. This is north-west Ireland, not far from the sea but far enough for me to call it midlands. My route goes from Co Leitrim into Co Cavan, staying close to the border with Northern Ireland. For so long associated with violence and up against the appeal of the west coast, Ireland’s borderland has been ignored by travellers. Yet its history is fascinating and there are many beautiful stretches. Word is starting to get out, but this still feels like Ireland’s undiscovered region.

I spent last night in a B&B in Glenfarne, a thinly spread community of farms and homes. Clancy’s (doubles from €89 B&B, walking packages available) appears to be the area’s heart, a string of businesses along the roadside, under one roof. It’s a B&B, a cafe, a shop and a post office.

Afghan provincial governor defies president’s order to step down

Leader of Samangan province is second governor to defy Ghani, exposing his weakness

A second Afghan provincial governor has defied an attempt by the president, Ashraf Ghani, to remove him, deepening a political crisis that has underlined the weakness of the western-backed government in Kabul.

Abdulkarim Khaddam, the governor of the northern province of Samangan, followed the leader of neighbouring Balkh province, Atta Mohammad Noor, in rejecting an order to step down, issued last week as part of a shakeup of regional governors.

Stock market recovery continues as confidence returns - business live

All the day’s economic and financial news, as Asian markets bounce back from the recent selloff

Greece’s bailout is back on the agenda today.

Fitch believes that general government debt sustainability will improve, underpinned by sustained GDP growth, reduced political risks, a record of general government primary surpluses and additional fiscal measures legislated to take effect through 2020.

Rebecca O’Keeffe, Head of Investment at interactive investor, sees a “positive” sentiment in the stock markets today as the global rebound continues.

Not even the unexpected indictments from Special Counsel Robert Mueller could hold the rally back, as US markets closed higher for the sixth straight session on Friday, resulting in the best week for US equities in five years.

The strength of the equity recovery has surprised some, but the weight of money coming out of bond markets is primarily finding its way into equities, which, for the moment at least, look far more attractive than other alternatives.

May's Brexit transition demand 'would penalise EU citizens'

Unthinkable for EU to agree to PM’s key demand on citizens’ rights, says Verhofstadt

Theresa May’s demand that EU nationals coming to the UK during a Brexit transition deal should enjoy fewer rights than those already in the country would amount to “penalising citizens”, Guy Verhofstadt has said.

Verhofstadt, the European parliament’s Brexit coordinator, said May was “not very serious” when she proposed the idea.

Brendan Cox resigns from charities amid sexual assault claims

Husband of murdered MP denies allegations but admits ‘mistakes’ while at Save the Children

US feminist Susan Brownmiller on why her groundbreaking book on rape is still relevant

Against Our Will brought rape out of the shadows in 1975. As the world reels from the #MeToo allegations, Brownmiller talks about pornography, power and 70s radical feminism

In the more than 40 years since its publication, Susan Brownmiller’s controversial, groundbreaking book about rape, Against Our Will, has never been out of print. It has, though, often been out of people’s minds – until now, that is. Thanks to the allegations against Harvey Weinstein and all that has followed in their wake, Brownmiller’s work is suddenly crisp again, its prescience and enduring relevance noted anew by anyone old enough, or well read enough, to be familiar with it. In a piece for the New Yorker last November, the magazine’s editor, David Remnick, used the adjective “startling” to describe it. Its author, he reminded his readers, got there first when it came to illustrating that sexual coercion is less a matter of lust than of power; and she made it her business to bust the myth that women “cry rape with ease and glee”. If that fallacy still prevails, this only shows how right she was to confront it in the first place.

After the article appeared, Brownmiller, who is now 82, expected a gentle upswing in her emails, perhaps the odd visit from a journalist. But, no. There followed a period of radio silence. “Turns out my details online were wrong, or something,” she says, with a cackle, lighting yet another cigarette. In her luxuriantly carpeted penthouse flat high at the top of a tower in Greenwich Village, New York, she was left alone to watch as #MeToo rolled like a huge boulder through the national conversation. What does she make of it so far? “Oh, I think it is a wonderful rise on the part of women,” she says, unhesitatingly. “People like me thought it [harassment] was all settled, and it was astonishing to find out that it wasn’t. The need to talk out, I find promising. It’s cathartic. It’s also very sad, of course. Sexual harassment was quantified by the law long ago. It’s been hard coming to terms with the fact that a lot of what we accomplished seems somehow just to have been erased.”

Pope Francis wowed the world but, five years on, is in troubled waters
He entered office on a wave of energy but, as discontent grows over his attitude to abuse scandals, Francis faces opposition on all sides

Chatham House is one of the most important foreign affairs thinktanks in the UK. But on Wednesday its focus will not be a president, or an organisation like the World Bank, or the future of the EU after Brexit, but a religious leader: Pope Francis. And it will be the third time in recent weeks that Britain has turned its attention to the pope.

Two weeks ago, the Foreign Office-sponsored thinktank Wilton Park took delegates to the Vatican to meet the pope and discuss violent religious extremism, while last week the Metropolitan police commissioner, Cressida Dick, was in Rome to talk with Francis about modern slavery.

Should we give up half of the Earth to wildlife?

Populations of all kinds of wildlife are declining at alarming speed. One radical solution is to make 50% of the planet a nature reserve

The orangutan is one of our planet’s most distinctive and intelligent creatures. It has been observed using primitive tools, such as the branch of a tree, to hunt food, and is capable of complex social behaviour. Orangutans also played a special role in humanity’s own intellectual history when, in the 19th century, Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, co-developers of the theory of natural selection, used observations of them to hone their ideas about evolution.

But humanity has not repaid orangutans with kindness. The numbers of these distinctive, red-maned primates are now plummeting thanks to our destruction of their habitats and illegal hunting of the species. Last week, an international study revealed that its population in Borneo, the animal’s last main stronghold, now stands at between 70,000 and 100,000, less than half of what it was in 1995. “I expected to see a fairly steep decline, but I did not anticipate it would be this large,” said one of the study’s co-authors, Serge Wich of Liverpool John Moores University.

The toll of 197 in 2017 – which has risen fourfold since it was first compiled in 2002 – underscores the violence on the frontiers of a global economy driven by expansion and consumption.

'Sorcery' attacks in Papua New Guinea's highlands – in pictures

The big picture: London Fashion Week, February 1998
With the 2018 event now in full swing, we revisit a telling Martin Parr shot from 20 years ago

Martin Parr is the kind of quick-witted photographer who catches life on the run, his shutter clicking faster than the human eye can blink. To coincide with London Fashion Week, which began last Friday, here is a deft act of espionage from backstage at the same event 20 years ago. Parr probably didn’t know what he’d snatched until he developed the film and saw that the flustered accidents of a moment had come to rest in a parable, showing how the beauty industry goes about its tortuous, tormenting work.

Makeup has already transformed the model into a doll: the waxen complexion, with a sickly jaundiced tone around the eyes, and the pursed, painted lips that are smaller and more infantile than her own. Now the hairdressers take over, knotting and coiling and pinning and teasing, with a can of eco-unfriendly aerosol spray ready to freeze her mane. They are technicians, busy on the assembly line; she is their manufactured product, as glassy-eyed as the lens of Parr’s camera.
