Covid has shown me what lies beyond boredom: post-boredom | Joel Golby
What are we going to do when all our former comforts induce juddering flashbacks to lockdown? I have already started practising my small talk for Christmas. “Good, thanks. You?” I keep saying into a mirror, fully aware that in the past eight months I have more or less completely lost the ability to make conversation with humans. “What did I do with the time? Wow, the year has gone so quickly, hasn’t it?”At this point I pause meaningfully because I know I have about two minutes of material to stretch over a five-day festive period with fewer people than usual, so I really need to make it last. “Let’s see, umm … got really into jigsaws for a bit. Rearranged the spare room into an office. Learned to make this one really good curry recipe from the BBC website. Uh … got 11 solo wins and about 24 duo wins on Fortnite.” Is that good?, they’ll ask, and I’ll have to admit that no, not particularly. “It’s a game for 12-year-olds that I play compulsively,” I’ll explain. “Every day I log in and let adolescents embarrass me in an online world that allows them to dance joyously on the remains of my corpse.” Oh, they’ll say. I think there’s something – I think there’s something happening in the other room. I really ought to… Continue reading...

Liberté review – gruesome night in the woods as French aristos go dogging
The debauchery of a bunch of bewigged 18th-century libertines is presented with cerebral seriousness, but it’s an ordeal to watchAlbert Serra’s Liberté, or Liberty, is a gruesome midsummer night’s dream of Sadeian horror in which a bunch of verbose bewigged libertines in the 18th century gather in a dark forest in their carriages for some prototypical dogging. (The men are allowed to be old and ugly, the women not.) It is some years before the French Revolution, centuries before Viagra. This film is an ordeal that I never want to go through again, but it’s undoubtedly executed with a cerebral conviction and uncompromising seriousness that no Anglo Saxon film-maker could approach.A group of (fictional) aristocrats, expelled from the court of Louis XVI, approach a sympathetic German nobleman, the Duc de Walchen (played by Visconti veteran Helmut Berger) for help; with his guidance they assemble one moonlit night in a forest for some uninhibited debauchery – and only that quaint word will do. Like joyless vampires, they murmur to each other their jaded, detached appreciation for the spectacles of flogging and bondage that take place in front of them, and periodically participate.

How to make cullen skink – recipe | Felicity Cloake's masterclass
Scotland’s classic smoked fish soup gets the Felicity Cloake treatmentBritish soups revel in some very peculiar names, from cock-a-leekie to london particular, but perhaps none is more evocative than cullen skink, named after the fishing town on the Moray Firth and an old Scots word for a thin broth. Not that there’s anything thin about this version: packed with smoky haddock and soft, buttery vegetables, it’s the perfect winter warmer. Continue reading...

Where Tesco leads on business rates relief others should follow
Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, B&M and co must decide whether to return the chancellor’s giftsThere is joy in heaven over one sinner who repents. There will also be astonishment on earth that Tesco is handing back to the Treasury its undeserved £585m pandemic freebie on business rates. The chances of a U-turn had seemed remote.Only two months ago, Tesco’s board defended keeping the money. While some of us regarded that stance as disgraceful, it would be hard to say the directors were feeling much heat. Even the Treasury, which will borrow £394bn this year on behalf of all of us, hadn’t dropped a hint that it would like a few quid back from the big grocers. Continue reading...
