Comforting treats after a night of TV terror
When the world seems a little too scary, reach for the chocolate boxesI was in need of comfort this week. I’d been binge-watching The Terror on BBC iPlayer: the dramatic retelling of the Franklin expedition to discover the Northwest Passage that set sail on two ships (one called HMS Terror) in 1845 with 129 men on board. Every man perished in circumstances that have never fully been explained. It is brilliant but brutal (don’t watch with children), leaving me in a state of confusion.Dark 70% chocolate wasn’t going to do anything for me so I reached into my testing box for some Soma dark milk. A reader told me, some time ago, about Soma Old School, which they described as like a fabulous Flake (it’s not currently made, so don’t go looking for it). Soma is a chocolatier based in Toronto (lucky you if you live there, as you also have Courage My Love, the best vintage shop in the world). I tried two of Soma’s 55% milk bars: the Creole Gardens (Haiti) and Vanua (Fiji) – both £10.95 (65g) from Cocoa Runners. Super creamy, there wasn’t much to pick between them, so if you covet a really fine dark milk treat do look at their beautiful bars. Continue reading...

Rapper Little Simz: ‘I don’t hold back – I feel super free’
She is as well known for her dizzying talent (Stormzy hailed her as a ‘legend’) as she is for her privacy. So, as Little Simz releases her fourth album, why is she finally opening up?It’s a drab afternoon on an industrial estate in London and I’m sitting, somewhat awkwardly, in the back of a parked car with Little Simz. The British-Nigerian rapper-singer-actor, 27, has spent the morning doing a photoshoot. The combination of closed cafés (England is still in lockdown) and persistent March drizzle has meant we’ve ended up in the car, an enormous 4x4 with TV screens built into the seats. Still wearing full makeup from the shoot, Simz is swaddled in comfortable grey sweatpants and a black, shiny puffer jacket. “People think I’m rude, or antisocial, or awkward, because I’m not chatty,” she says.Simz, full name Simbiatu Ajikawo, doesn’t waste her words. When she talks, she is purposeful, precise, politely withholding. Yet from its overture, her fourth studio album, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, reveals an interior world of cinematic proportions. “I’m definitely not the greatest at opening up,” she says today. But there are two Simz: the one that is by nature reticent and the Simz who wants to show you her universe. Continue reading...

Is time running out for the union as the case grows for a new independence vote? | Neal Ascherson
The UK government has moved to veto two bills passed by the Scottish parliament, strengthening the hand of the SNPAre postal voters bolder? Does the solemnity of polling stations cow voters into having second thoughts? Because of the pandemic, there will be far more postal voters than ever in the Scottish elections on 6 May – almost a quarter of the electorate. It’s easier to be adventurous with a ballpoint at your kitchen table. The radio next to the teapot said last week that Boris Johnson and his English Tories were going to veto Scottish bills aimed at strengthening the rights of the child and of local authorities, even though both were passed unanimously by Scotland’s parliament, which could prove a significant landmark. It grows easier to vote for the three parties that want another independence referendum. Related: Scottish election 2021: a visual guide on what to expect Continue reading...

AJ Tracey: Flu Game review – a confident slam dunk
(Revenge)Ladbroke Grove meets the NFL as the London rap star eyes the US market on a basketball-inspired album of nonstop bangersWest London rapper AJ Tracey’s ambitious second studio album doesn’t just nod to the pandemic; it references a 1997 NBA game when a visibly unwell Michael Jordan overcame food poisoning to help the Chicago Bulls to victory. Tracey is also digging deep to triumph over the odds, the title implies, with a US audience in his sights on this “sophomore” album.What follows is a three-pointer taken with poise and verve. Despite the many basketball references – tracks like Draft Pick, Kukoč and Eurostep – plus the presence of US guests such as T-Pain and Kehlani, Tracey’s output remains reassuringly hyperlocal, not diluting his flows but rather taking plenty of familiar UK specifics international. West Ten, his terrific garage-revival hit with Mabel, is most obviously sited in Ladbroke Grove, but granular references to Tracey’s “opps”, upmarket restaurants and Vimto also litter these confident, irresistibly rhythmic verses.

In the Thick of It by Alan Duncan review – too much bile, not enough style
The former Conservative minister spews out the vitriol in his diaries, but lacks the self-awareness and wit to write a great political memoirDipping into this at random, I find Alan Duncan plaintively asking his diary: “Why am I not on TV more?”A desperate craving for attention is hardly uncommon among politicians, but rarely is the neediness so naked as in this case. The serialisation in the Daily Mail, an outlet chosen despite describing it as the Daily Hate, emphasised the look-at-me vitriol that he unleashes upon other Tories. There is certainly an acid rain of it. Boris Johnson is “a clown, a self-centred ego, an embarrassing buffoon… He is an international stain on our reputation”. Michael Gove is “an unctuous freak… a wacky weirdo who is both unappealing and untrustworthy”. Priti Patel is “Priti Appalling… a brassy monster…the Wicked Witch of Witham”. John Bercow is the “shitty little Speaker Hobbit”. Steve Hilton, one-time adviser to David Cameron, is “such a tosser… What a total wanker. Total. Total. Total.” Continue reading...

The night Prince Philip told me he was a ‘European mongrel’, and happy that way | Will Hutton
Invited to dinner to muse on the EU, I found little to suggest a latent BrexiterIt was a Monday evening in early 2004 when a group of Europhiles and Europhobes gathered for a Buckingham Palace dinner at the Duke of Edinburgh’s invitation. We were there to discuss the proposed treaty for a European constitution, just written and whose ratification across Europe was about to begin. I had been one of 12 European “thinkers” who had made joint recommendations on what European values should be in its preamble, hence my presence. What followed was one of the most surreal evenings of my life, brought to mind by the three German princes the Duke of Edinburgh insisted should attend yesterday’s funeral.Evidently he cared about the issue, hosting the dinner after an Atlantic night flight and two public engagements earlier that day. Conversation over pre-dinner drinks was wary – Labour MP Austin Mitchell relieved our awkwardness by switching the lights on his union jack bow tie on and off – and eventually we were ushered through long corridors to a banqueting room, lit by low chandeliers and guttering candles.

By demonising asylum seekers, Denmark reflects a panic in social democracy | Kenan Malik
Forcing Syrians to return home shows the left apeing the far right in a race to the bottomWhat do you call a government so hostile to refugees that it wants to send them back to a country that tortures and “disappears” its critics on a mass scale? Reactionary? Monstrous? In Denmark, they call it social democratic.Denmark is the first European nation to insist that Syrian refugees should return to their home country because Bashar al-Assad’s regime is now in control and there is little conflict. It has revoked the residency permits of dozens of Syrian refugees and started detaining those it wants to deport. Yet it cannot actually deport anyone because it has severed diplomatic relations with Damascus. Assad’s regime is, apparently, despotic enough for Copenhagen to abjure relations but not so bad that Syria is unsafe for returning refugees. Continue reading...

Billy Wilder: from poor Austrian journalist to Hollywood superstar
The director’s newly translated writings reveal how his life as a penniless reporter shaped his hit moviesIn an arresting scene from one of director Billy Wilder’s most famous films, Some Like It Hot, Marilyn Monroe sashays along a Chicago railway station platform in a figure-hugging outfit, leaving Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis gobsmacked. Until now, few have made the connection between this scene and some of Wilder’s own experiences as a young Austrian journalist in the 1920s. This month, the first major collection of Wilder’s journalism ever published will reveal the way his early writings shaped and influenced memorable scenes, characters and plots from films he later wrote and directed, including Sunset Boulevard and The Apartment.

How to turn a patio into a green oasis
Instead of weeding between the slabs, fill the gaps with ornamental speciesSomeone recently asked me: “How do you get the motivation to do all those jobs you hate in the garden?” As a person who increasingly can’t find the motivation to do anything other than gardening, I had to think long and hard about how to answer this question. I know that in horticultural media there’s often talk of gardening as if it is some kind of outdoor tidying up, with our “jobs for the week” and “top 10 hacks” – but things don’t have to be this way.If you don’t like doing something in the garden, you just need to change it. Life is too short to spend on your hands and knees weeding between the gaps of patio slabs, when you could be enjoying the miracles of the natural world in the fresh air, especially since two weeks later you’ll have to do it all again. So here’s how to do away with that job for ever. Continue reading...
