'Sneak culture': Boris Johnson appears to criticise Priti Patel for rule of six snooping

PM suggests he would be uncomfortable reporting neighbours under Covid law

Coronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverage

Boris Johnson has appeared to reproach the home secretary, Priti Patel, for saying she would report her neighbours for meeting in groups bigger than six, calling it “sneak culture”.

The prime minister suggested he was uncomfortable with snooping on his neighbours but said everyone should act responsibly to abide by the “rule of six”, which bans gatherings in England of more than six people, inside and outside, as a way to contain coronavirus.

The search for life – from Venus to the outer solar system
While the discovery of the normally microbe-produced phosphine on our toxic neighbour is astonishing, other candidates for life are more promisingIt remains one of the most unexpected scientific discoveries of the year. To their astonishment, British scientists last week revealed they had uncovered strong evidence that phosphine – a toxic, rancid gas produced by microbes – exists in the burning, acid-drenched atmosphere of Venus.

Another day not at the office: will working from home be 2020's most radical change?
During lockdown millions started WFH – and most of us don’t want to go back. In just a few months the landscape of work, family and city life has altered dramatically - but are all the changes positive?There’s a man sitting at the first-floor window of the house that lies on the other side of my back fence. It’s early August, the weather is sweltering, and his window is wide open. He’s talking on a hands-free phone, laughing in that ingratiating manner that suggests a large payday is at stake. He speaks in a fashionable sales patter that sounds similar to real conversation, but crucially isn’t, and he’s practically broadcasting his pitch to the neighbourhood. WTF? I want to shout, but I already know the answer: WFH.With the exception of Covid-19 itself, working from home has been the big story of 2020. I’ve been home-based for more than 20 years and for most of that time, before my neighbour began advertising his WFH status, I was a local exception, left to my own devices in tranquil isolation. No one was much interested in the emotional dynamics of my daily work regime. But since the lockdown emptied the nation’s offices, it’s become a national topic of conversation. Continue reading...

Shetland: an epic landscape with a Viking soul
Closer to the Faroe Islands than to Edinburgh, Scotland’s northernmost isles are home to fascinating ancient sites and a spirit of proud self-sufficiencyIt takes a certain confidence for a remote community of farmers and fishermen to push for independence from the rest of the United Kingdom, but the hardy inhabitants of the wind-scoured Shetland Islands have never been short of self-belief. These are, after all, the people with the highest levels of Viking DNA found anywhere in the British Isles.Pull up a barstool in the Douglas Arms in Lerwick, Shetland’s capital, and locals will tell you they feel as distant from Holyrood as they do from Westminster. There’s no malice intended; self-sufficiency just comes with the territory when you spend 365 days a year being lashed by the wild waves of the North Atlantic. Continue reading...

Sunday with Richard Quinn: ‘I trawl vintage shops for inspiration’
The fashion designer talks about dressing down, going for long walks and being namechecked by Kendall JennerWhen does your morning start? At 7am. My body clock wakes me up naturally. I try not to work on weekends – no checking emails or taking phone calls – so I’ll relax for the morning. By 9am my wireless headphones are in and I’m out the door, else I find it’s suddenly 5pm and I’ve done nothing and gone nowhere.A favourite stroll? Through Eltham Park, Blackheath and into east London via Wapping. I always take walks, but they were extended through lockdown. When I make it to Brick Lane, I’ll trawl through the vintage shops for retro pieces I can bring home for inspiration: a piece with a nice finish, an interesting button or an unexpected cut for closer inspection.

Pilgrim fathers: harsh truths amid the Mayflower myths of nationhood
As Plymouth marks 400 years since the colonists set sail, the high price paid by Native American tribes is now revealed in an exhibitionFor a ship that would sail into the pages of history, the Mayflower was not important enough to be registered in the port book of Plymouth in 1620. Pages from September of that year bear no trace of the vessel, because it was only only 102 passengers and not cargo, making it of no official interest.The port book is one of the many surprising objects at Mayflower 400: Legend & Legacy, the inaugural exhibition of the Box in Plymouth, Devon, which will open to the public later this month, and which is part of the city’s efforts to mark the 400th anniversary of the ship’s Atlantic crossing.

Should we be impressed by ‘reserve’ wine? | David Williams
Whether marketing term or guaranteed mark of quality, these bottles are worth seeking outWaitrose Reserve Claret, Bordeaux, France 2018 (£6.99, Waitrose) When you see the word ‘reserve’ on a bottle you’re being invited to believe the wine will be a little bit special, that it’s part of a batch that has been held back – reserved! – just for you and other members of the cognoscenti. You might also assume there’s a rule about what a winemaker has to do before they’re allowed to use ‘reserve’. Well, neither assumption is true – at least not always, or not everywhere. In many parts of the world you can put reserve (or reserva or riserva) on any wine. There’s no guarantee that it will have been aged or made in a special way. Indeed, on a big-production number like Waitrose Reserve Claret, the use of the term is marketing, plain and simple – although that doesn’t mean it is any less crunchily, blackcurrant-juicily attractive.Beronia Gran Reserva, Rioja, Spain 2011 (£24.99, or £21.99 as part of a Mix Six, Majestic) One region that does have strict reserva rules in place is Spain’s Rioja. To qualify for the category, a red rioja has to spend at least three years ageing, with at least one in oak barrels. Red gran reserva wines, meanwhile, age even longer: a minimum of 60 months, with at least two years in a barrel. Does that mean that reserva or gran reserva wines are always better than wines made outside those classifications? Not necessarily: there are plenty of Rioja producers who’d say these terms describe a style or tendency rather than a quality level. And it’s true that many of the best bottles in Rioja don’t fit into either category. All the same, few red wines can match a well-made gran reserva – such as Beronia’s – for mellow, savoury, autumnal charm. Continue reading...

Lyon’s Seafood and Wine Bar, London: ‘An intriguing thing’ – restaurant review
Lyon’s may look like just another local restaurant, but it’s well worth the trip to Crouch EndLyon’s Seafood and Wine Bar, 1 Park Road, Crouch End, London N8 8TE (020 8350 8983). Small plates £2.50-£9, main dishes £12.50-£17.50, desserts £7, wines from £21Many years ago, I was a regular carol singer around the streets of Crouch End in north London, which was an odd pre-Christmas night out for an atheist Jew. Then again, very few of those in our group had much interest in the baby Jesus. We just liked the tunes and the potential for fundraising. From these repeated trips I learned two things about Crouch End. The first is that, compared to many other parts of London, it’s a right pain in the arse to get to. Tube and train lines have no desire to go anywhere near it, which means it’s a bus ride or nothing. Continue reading...
