The ecstatic rise of rainbow hair: ‘I have one life. I’m going to live it colourfully!’
In a world laid low by Brexit, you see them at school gates and in supermarket queues: ordinary women with wildly multicoloured hair. We ask five colour converts why they have taken the leapWe are facing the prospect of a few gloomy grey months ahead, with a general election on the horizon, and no end to the Brexit impasse in sight. But one trend has emerged to brighten up these damp winter days.Not long ago you would see rainbow hair only on celebrities such as Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj, or people in the cosplay community. Not any more. What was once a wacky trend is now beloved of ordinary women. Look around your local coffee shop, or observe mothers on the school run, and you may see the rainbow hair trend for yourself. It’s certainly hard to miss. Continue reading...

'The bike saved me': cycling project for vulnerable people under threat
The Bristol Bike Project has been repairing abandoned or unwanted bicycles for vulnerable people for 10 years – but now faces an uncertain future“We noticed people were walking three hours to come to us, to see friends, to go to college, to do voluntary work,” says James Lucas, co-founder of the Bristol Bike Project. “It can take it out of you if you are doing that every day. If you are used to just having money for a bus, or you have a car or are used to having your own bike, you can take that mobility for granted.”The not-for-profit cooperative’s Earn-a-Bike programme has been repairing abandoned or unwanted bicycles for the most vulnerable members of society for 10 years. Now, though, the project faces an existential threat. The owner of the 1970s office block Hamilton House in Stokes Cross, where it has been based since the beginning, has issued it with notice.

Christopher Nunn's best photograph: a picnic in the shadow of war
‘I spotted them from a bus, two girls having a picnic in Ukraine. This was before the war turned bad. Back then, no one would have believed how bad things would get’I took this in Donetsk, Ukraine, in 2014, just as the war with Russia started. It was immediately after the first battle for Donetsk airport, the first time war came to the city. I was on the bus back to my apartment when I spotted this car and people having a picnic next to it. I got off, and we got talking and had a few drinks. It was a chance meeting, they were all excited to meet a foreigner – they had never met an English person before.I was taking pictures and they were posing, just young people having fun. This shot was a snapshot, they weren’t really paying attention to me when I took it, but when I looked through my photographs later it stood out. I like the fact you can’t see the girls’ faces. I don’t know them, so I would have felt uncomfortable sharing a picture of them drinking, which might represent them negatively. Continue reading...

I wish I'd never been born: the rise of the anti-natalists
Adherents view life not as a gift and a miracle, but a harm and an imposition. And their notion that having children may be a bad idea seems to be gaining mainstream popularityIn February, a 27-year-old Indian man named Raphael Samuel announced plans for an unusual lawsuit. He was going to sue his parents for begetting him. “It was not our decision to be born,” he told the BBC. “Human existence is totally pointless.”Samuel recently told me over Skype from Mumbai that his is a good life, and he is actually close to his parents. His complaint is more fundamental: he believes it is wrong to bring new people into the world without their consent. He wanted to sue his parents for a symbolic amount of money, such as a single rupee, “to instill that fear among parents in general. Because now parents don’t think before having a child,” he told me. Continue reading...

The task of politics today is to scare the capitalists as much as communism did | Aditya Chakrabortty
The threat of the Soviet bloc forced western democracies to acknowledge the rights of workers and poor peopleAs the big day dawned last weekend, Berliners held a huge street party, with more than 100,000 revellers gathering in the cold to ooh and aah over an epic display of fireworks. Elsewhere, celebrants of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Wall followed their own time-honoured traditions. TV producers ran that grainy archive of burly Germans smashing sledgehammers into brickwork, while posh newspapers rolled out their grandest pen-suckers to pronounce on The Future of the Continent. Thus, a historic event that changed the world is stripped of some of its most troubling questions and tidied away into a neat little period piece, a Now That’s What I Call Perestroika! compilation album.Let us try to change that today, for I come not to bury communism but to praise it – or rather, one aspect of it that gets next to no recognition. On its own terms, “really existing socialism” was a miserable failure: brutally repressive to its own peoples and ultimately unable to compete with capitalist economies. Yet it achieved something else that its own politburos and planners never intended - an achievement that represents one of our era’s greatest paradoxes. Communism didn’t topple capitalism, but kept it honest – and so saved it from itself. Continue reading...

'I have lost faith': Brexit dissolves loyalties in London Tory stronghold
Cities of London and Westminster has been Conservative since 1950 – but as the area’s ‘citizens of nowhere’ balk at hard Brexit, a Lib Dem who used to be Labour could upend itWhen the constituency of Cities of London and Westminster was created in 1950, it immediately returned a Conservative MP. It has done so in every election since. It is the constituency of Mayfair, Belgravia, and Knightsbridge, and the constituency of the City of London itself. As a Tory flagship seat, it has long appeared unsinkable.But there is more to the area than extreme wealth – from the mixed communities of Fitzrovia and Soho to pockets of deprivation. Notwithstanding its affluence, housing and homelessness loom large among voters who share the streets with one of the UK’s largest concentrations of rough sleepers. Continue reading...

Election 2019: is Scotland moving towards independence? – podcast
Scotland correspondent Libby Brooks tells Rachel Humphreys how the chaos of Brexit has put independence back centre stage at this election. Plus: Sayeeda Warsi on the Conservative party’s enduring problem of IslamophobiaWhen Scottish voters said no to independence in the referendum of 2014 it did not settle the question “for a generation” as some on the winning side had wished. Instead, there was a surge in support for the Scottish National party, which in turn promised to return to the independence question as soon as a referendum was judged to be winnable. The political shock of Brexit provided a new impetus and now as Scottish voters contemplate the election of 2019, they are being prompted to think about it as a chance to consider their future not just in the EU but in the UK as well. The Guardian’s Scotland correspondent, Libby Brooks, has been on the campaign trail with Boris Johnson, who has promised that a Conservative government would block any attempts by the SNP to push for a new referendum. And she tells Rachel Humphreys about meeting independence supporters as they contemplate the best way of persuading “no” voters to come around to breaking with the UK. Continue reading...
