Harry Styles: ‘I’m not just sprinkling in sexual ambiguity to be interesting’
The former One Direction star talks about success at 16, dating ‘normals’ and his right to rock a dressHere he comes, one of the planet’s most conspicuous young men, stepping out of the London drizzle and into a dusty suburban pub. If there was an old vinyl record player in the place it would scratch quiet. Instead, the two-dozen punters turn hushed and intent, as if a unicorn has just trotted in off the street, and nobody wants to scare it off. “That’s frickin’ Harry frickin’ Styles,” whispers a young man at the bar, “in this pub.” The pop star is asked what he wants to drink and in a voice already inclined to undertones, quietly orders a cup of tea.A former teen star who is now 25, a happier and rockier solo artist since his boyband One Direction split a few years ago, Styles has hidden himself inside a large, swamp-green parka. He’s tall, around the 6ft mark, and carries himself with a slight stoop. If Styles could only do something about his appearance from the neck up (elfin brow, wide Joker smile, a face that’s recognisable across multiple continents) you sense he could drink in pubs like this anonymously enough. As it is, cover blown, he removes the parka. A woolly jumper beneath has a picture of the planet Saturn on it. Maybe they’ve heard of Styles there, too. Continue reading...

Ness by Robert Macfarlane and Stanley Donwood review – forces of nature
This freewheeling prose poem from a master of modern nature writing is an apocalyptic vision set in one of Suffolk’s most curious corners, Orford NessRobert Macfarlane’s most recent book, Underland, came out only months ago, took him several years to write, and must rank as one of the most personally taxing books of its kind (it’s filled with accounts of dangerous descents beneath the surface of the earth). So it’s no surprise that a new book should be as short, and comparatively unadventurous in terms of its destination, as Ness. Decorated with Stanley Donwood’s pen and ink illustrations, it also suggests a different kind of release for Macfarlane. While his previous books have laid their evocations of the natural world on a foundation of scholarship and reportage, Ness is a freewheeling prose-poem. As far as its poetry is concerned, it doesn’t offer much more than passages of irregular rhyming, broken-up lines, and the encouragement to read with an especially sharp eye for metaphorical rather than merely literal interest. But never mind: the book is a chance for Macfarlane both to take a breather, and to continue his conversation about the beauty, fragility and sheer strangeness of the world we inhabit.The ness in question is an extremely strange place indeed: a 10-mile-long shingle spit running parallel to the shoreline at Orford on the Suffolk coast, which for much of the last century was a top-secret site for military research. Machine guns were tested there during the first world war, and during the cold war it was the site of important work on the mechanisms of nuclear bombs. When the site was abandoned by the military and taken on by the National Trust, the trust decided it couldn’t defend it indefinitely from the ravages of erosion. It thus became a place of several overlapping interests: the ness itself, with its rich flora and fauna; the buildings, and what they tell us about old threats and secrets; and the effects of climate change in our time of encroaching disaster. It is, as Macfarlane has said elsewhere, “a landscape produced by a collision of the human death drive and natural life”. Continue reading...

After Grenfell, a Tory MP for Kensington is a bitter pill | Seraphima Kennedy
The community around the tower is now represented by the party that failed to prevent the tragedyIt is a bitter pill for the community in Kensington North to swallow. This morning, almost 30 months since the fatal fire at that killed 54 adults and 18 children, the general election returned a Conservative MP, Felicity Buchan, by just 150 votes. Buchan beat the incumbent, Emma Dent-Coad (who was herself elected with only a slim margin of 20 votes back in 2017, just days before the Grenfell Tower fire).The residents of Kensington, whose council is still under investigation for corporate manslaughter, now have an MP from the party that rejected the recommendations that could have prevented Grenfell. That same party has also failed to get to grips with the scale of the cladding scandal since the fire. If anything, progress is going backwards: thousands remain in unsafe homes, and new figures released today show an increase in the number of tower blocks with Grenfell-style cladding.

My dad singing in A&E was a Christmas low point. Will this one be better? | Romesh Ranganathan
This year we have invited everyone to ours. With any luck, we’ll get the rest of the break to ourselvesIt may seem to sit in direct contradiction to my misanthropic shtick, but I bloody love Christmas. I loved it when I was a kid, mainly because my parents went in for Christmas hard. There is a big Sri Lankan community in Crawley and we would do a circuit of people’s houses over the festive period, with my dad getting hammered and making a real show of himself before going home to the traditional Christmas sound of my mum giving him a bollocking.One year he slipped on the ice and hurt his face. My mum took him to hospital and he decided he was going to try to lift everyone’s spirits in the waiting room (showing a wilful ignorance of the reason everyone was there) by singing Christmas songs at full volume. My mum said her low point was when he went behind reception and started trying to check in patients. Continue reading...
