Whisky galore: raise a glass to Burns Night
The price of good Scotch may have rocketed, but so long as you’re prepared to shop around, there’s no shortage of drams for a Burns Night blowoutIf you buy whisky only once a year for Burns Night, you might be in for a shock when scouring the shelves for your favourite brand: a 16-year-old Lagavulin, for example, now costs about £70. You can get the sweeter, less complex eight-year-old – a sort of Lagavulin-lite, if you will – for about £57, but the 12-year-old is now a £129.49 special release these days.Granted, you can still pick up own-label whiskies and household names such as Whyte & Mackay and Famous Grouse for about £20 (prices vary hugely, so it’s worth shopping around), but go for more upmarket “expressions”, and you’ll pay a good deal more. Johnnie Walker’s Black Label, for instance, is £20 in Asda at the time of writing (and £30 at Sainsbury’s), but confuse it with Blue Label, and could find yourself shelling out over 150 quid.

Our three-year-old says he loves me more than his dad. What can I do? | Ask Annalisa Barbieri
Rest assured, your son is going through a phase, but his father’s distress about this is understandable, says Annalisa BarbieriFor the past six months, our three-year-old son has been showing clear favouritism towards me. My partner finds it really upsetting and was recently devastated when my son blankly told him he loves mummy more than he loves daddy.We have another baby due any day now, so I try to comfort my partner by explaining that it’s probably normal behaviour for his age and is likely to be related to the changes that we are going through as a family, but he still gets extremely hurt by it.

It’s the Tory Hunger Games all over again – only this time with pork pies | Marina Hyde
For the never-did-me-any-harm generation of senior MPs, the protests of the younger generation are hard to stomachHow are you finding the pace of Boris Johnson’s political demise? I once saw a wildlife clip where a snake was eating a live chicken, but stopped for a long rest in the middle of it, leaving the bird sort of half in, half out of the jaws. The chicken veered between shock, which gave the appearance of calm, and distressingly grim bouts of flailing. Though it wasn’t wearing the Facemask of Shame and trying to talk about its vaccine rollout, I did find myself reminded of it this week. Of course, in tribute to Johnson’s gift for political escapology, David Cameron once called Johnson a “greased piglet”. But as David well knows, even pigs get defiled by reality in the end.Speaking of swine, there has been a huge amount to be amused by amid the horror show. It seems pause has currently been pressed on something called the pork pie plot, which must be a relief to the prime minister. I’m not sure Boris Johnson could handle the truly hilarious self-realisation of getting to the Reichenbach Falls and discovering his worthy foe was … hang on, let me get my monocle … ah yes, Gary Sambrook. “Bugger off, Gary – I’m expecting Sherlock Holmes, not some 32-year-old Freemason no one’s ever heard of.” And more on the generational comedy in a bit.Marina Hyde is a Guardian columnist Continue reading...

OPINION - Evening Standard Comment: White gold? The great lithium squeeze threatens the electric revolution
Coal, oil and gas — three fossil fuels that drove the industrial revolution and to this day continue to dictate the price of goods all over the world. But as we shift away from carbon-intensive fuels and towards net-zero emissions, we will remain reliant on finite and hard to reach resources. For electric car manufacturing, and the batteries required to power them, lithium is key.
