My friend's boyfriend doesn't treat her well. How can I help?
She insists on staying in our university town even though she doesn’t like her job and has had a string of relationships that haven’t worked. What can I do to support her?I am worried about one of my best friends. After we graduated, most of our friendship group relocated to London for work, but she stayed in our university town. She is going through a tough time; she doesn’t like her job, she doesn’t have many friends where she is and her boyfriend doesn’t treat her very well, but she insists she’s happy there. She doesn’t like to be alone – she has been in five relationships in the past three years, and I’m concerned she mainly stayed there because of her boyfriend. We feel she is really unhappy, but would never admit that to us. She has a few counselling sessions booked in, but how can I help her?• When leaving a message on this page, please be sensitive to the fact that you are responding to a real person in the grip of a real-life dilemma, who wrote to Private Lives asking for help and may well view your comments here.

Anna Wintour is my icon — but her plan to fix fast fashion with hand-me-downs needs an edit
It was midday on a dreary Friday when I received the call. "Are you sitting down?" I was. "Good," came the voice of my friend on the other end of the line, who shall remain nameless. "I'm meeting Anna Wintour tomorrow about my wedding dress and I'd like you to come along." I couldn't breathe. It was the nearest thing to a religious epiphany that I had experienced since I dressed up as Maria von Trapp and went on a pub crawl. After the euphoric news came the crushing comedown, of course. How would I get through this bucket-list moment? I prepared for the meeting like Princess Elizabeth awaiting her coronation — with more tiaras.

Manchester derby: what’s gone wrong and right so far at City and United? | Jamie Jackson
Neither club are where they want to be after 15 games but both Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Pep Guardiola still have time to make the season a successLiverpool’s stellar form, a weakness in central defence and a group of players who before Tuesday’s 4-1 rout of Burnley lacked an edge are key factors for Manchester City being 11 points behind the Merseyside club. Pep Guardiola rates the midfielder Fernandinho over John Stones or Nicolás Otamendi as first-choice cover for the injured centre-back Aymeric Laporte, illuminating how the failure to acquire an A-list replacement for Vincent Kompany was a serious error. The win at Turf Moor was a reminder of how energy and effervescence from the manager’s pass-and-move play had dipped: given the deficit this has to remain until May. Continue reading...

The Tories may think they've already won – but the stats tell a different story | Ell Smith
Labour has made significant gains in the polls over the past few weeks – and, as in 2017, a ‘youthquake’ looks likelyIs history about to repeat itself? With less than a week to go until Britain’s third general election in five years, the Conservatives have failed to confront any of the shortcomings that led to them losing their majority in 2017. Their manifesto offered nothing new in terms of policy for young people or remain voters – two key groups who voted overwhelmingly against the Conservatives in 2017. Boris Johnson’s campaign has instead focused on winning the support of leave voters, attempting to avoid making any new promises and relentlessly criticising Jeremy Corbyn.

British Hindus voting for Labour are not ‘traitors’ to India | Shami Chakrabarti
There’s no room in UK politics for the hatred being promoted by a group tied to the BJP, India’s ruling partyWe children of migrants all have family legends. Mine is of a young man on a ship in 1959. He had £5 in his pocket and a sweetheart who could only join him a few years later, once he had worked and saved enough to make them a home.The less romantic story is of racism and violence. First there was the horrific brutality between fellow Hindus and Muslim neighbours that my parents witnessed before they left India. Then they were attacked by far-right skinheads as they pushed me in my pram in north London. Still they believed in the power of democracy, of votes inspired and earned with ideas and policies; not those bought or demanded on the basis of faith, race or hate. Continue reading...
