The ‘rough sex’ defence plea is growing. It’s a worrying trend | Barbara Ellen
When a woman engages in consensual sex with another adult, it does not mean she has a death wishIt’s good to see that John Broadhurst has lost his appeal to have reduced the sentence of three years and eight months he was given for the manslaughter by negligence of his partner, Natalie Connolly. Connolly suffered 40 separate injuries, including serious internal trauma, and died as she lay at the bottom of stairs.This case was also notable for being part of what appears to be a growing legal trend for “rough sex” being used as part of a defence plea. Generally, it is claimed that the female victims demand consensual rough sex, dying accidentally as a result. It’s happening in the ongoing, harrowing Grace Millane case in Auckland, where the accused claims that the backpacking British 21-year-old asked to be choked during sex. Continue reading...

I love my son more than my daughter, but don’t know why | Dear Mariella
It’s important to find the reasons, says Mariella Frostrup. Look back to when you were pregnant or soon after your daughter was born for cluesThe dilemma I’m a mother to a girl (four) and a boy (two) and I love my son more than my daughter. I know it’s common to love one child more than another, but what bothers me is that my daughter isn’t loved as much as she deserves, and not nearly as much as I would like to love her. I do feel love for her, I’m protective of her and her happiness, and her health and wellbeing are so important to me, but something is missing and I don’t know how to achieve it, or why it’s happened. When she was born, it took me several weeks to make a meaningful emotional connection with her – unlike with her brother, where it formed as soon as he was put in my arms. I feel like the nature of my relationship with both of them was forever formed right there and then. I hope that I’m wrong. It makes me feel guilty. She’s a wonderful, kind, intelligent and funny girl that I want to love, but something is blocking my feelings towards her. It breaks my heart. I make an effort to spend one-on-one quality time with her, which we enjoy, but it doesn’t help.Mariella replies Bravo for your honesty. It’s not easy to accept that your feelings for your children differ and it’s equally challenging to admit it publicly in these censorious times – not that you have anything to be ashamed of. As you say, there are plenty of parents with similar qualms. I remember, before my second child was born, being terrified I wouldn’t have enough room in my heart for another baby, that somehow my daughter had used up all my emotional bandwidth. When I first laid eyes on my son and found my heart had expanded in that instant to encompass him I was surprised, relieved and reminded that biology is a miraculous thing. Continue reading...

Live Seafood, Manchester: ‘A parade of the best and freshest Chinese dishes’ – restaurant review
The Chinese dishes here are so fresh that you can go eyeball to eyeball with them firstLive Seafood, 163 Ashton Old Road, Manchester M11 3WU (07894 062 214). Seafood prices vary depending upon choices and weight, but roughly £10-£25This week’s restaurant is not a secret. Many of Manchester’s Chinese restaurateurs will know exactly where it is: on a scuffed drag, a mile or so east of Manchester Piccadilly station, overlooking wasteground apparently untouched by thoughts of urban regeneration. That doesn’t stop Live Seafood being obscure. And utterly, delightfully nuts. It was once a red brick boozer called the Seven Stars, but now has an extension and a lot of signage, plastered with giant images of lobsters, king crabs and shiny fish. Occasionally the building is hung with fairy lights. They love a fairy light at Live Seafood. Continue reading...

From the archive: the inside story of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s rise to power
In 1991 the Observer Magazine’s cover story provided a unique blend of muscle, ambition and Nietzschean philosophyThe Observer Magazine cover story of 10 November 1991 is an extract from George Butler’s ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger – A Portrait.’ This was around the time of Total Recall and Terminator 2 and, arguably, the peak of his film career. The main thing that comes across is Schwarzenegger’s obsession with his image and how he controls it, and the implied insecurity.When they travel to Austria to meet Arnie’s mother, Aurelia, Schwarzenegger refuses to allow a picture outside her old house. He wants us to see the big new house he has bought her instead. Aurelia tells us that, at 14, he would sneak out while his father was asleep, hitchhike to a football stadium and lift barbells, only returning home for a few hours’ sleep. If he was locked out, he’d sleep in the barn. Continue reading...

Uncertainty, inequality, fragility: why France is a country at war with itself | Andrew Hussey
The gilets jaunes erupted exactly a year ago. To understand them, we need to see the movement in the context of 2015’s tumultuous eventsThe year 2015 was without doubt one of the worst in living memory in France. It began on 7 January with the massacre at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Two days later, four people were killed in an Islamist attack on a Jewish supermarket in Montrouge, just south of Paris. The year ended with mass slaughter on 13 November when Islamist gunmen and suicide bombers attacked the Bataclan concert hall, killing 130 people and injuring many more. By the end of 2015, France appeared to have slipped into a deep trauma that is not yet over.Four years on, quiet commemorations of the 13 November attacks were held once again across Paris, led by the city’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, and the interior minister, Christophe Castaner. But official ceremonies can never tell the real story of how people feel. Certainly, the atmosphere last week in my neighbourhood of Pernety, a mile or so from Montrouge, was muted.

Home listening: two-for-the-price-of-one Handel and Bach
The Dunedin Consort’s new Samson comes with and without mixed choir, while Víkingur Ólafsson reworks his brilliant Bach recital• No one can accuse the Dunedin Consort of doing things by halves. For their new recording of Handel’s Samson (Linn), they are offering two complete versions of the oratorio, one on disc and one via download. The arias and recitatives remain the same, but the choruses are completely reworked, with a mixed choir on the discs (the soloists joined by the bright voices of the Tiffin Boys’ Choir) and a soloists-only ensemble on the download. I firmly prefer the tonal contrast and youthful freshness of the mixed choir, but it’s a luxury to have both.Samson (1743) has always been popular among Handel’s great oratorios, maybe partly the story (with its fine text from Milton’s Samson Agonistes) is so well-known. But early on you begin to question whether the music stands up to Handel’s greatest works of the early 1740s, Messiah and L’Allegro, especially when it is recorded here with totally uncut recitatives. However, towards the end of Act 2, with the superb chorus Hear, Jacob’s God, it suddenly deepens, and Act 3 is a masterpiece. Continue reading...

My Mother Said I Never Should review – signs of the times
Crucible, SheffieldSilence is both golden and frustrating in Charlotte Keatley’s play about four generations of women featuring deaf actorsFingersmiths theatre company specialises in “ways of presenting theatre which previously have not been available to deaf audiences in their own language”. In its new co-production with Sheffield Theatres, the troupe performs Charlotte Keatley’s 1987 classic using varying combinations of British sign language, quasi-mime gestures, spoken words, silently mouthed words, voiceover and surtitles (projected on to a kite-shaped screen, incorporated into Sophia Lovell Smith’s multipurpose set). The result is both thrilling and frustrating.Set in Manchester, Oldham and London, Keatley’s action spans 1923 to 1987, following threads of entanglement and estrangement that bind together four generations of one family.

The Sleeping Beauty; Rambert Event review – total ballerina focus and stale fruitcake
Royal Opera House; Sadler’s Wells, LondonA spectacular Princess Aurora graces a Royal Ballet favourite in dire need of an update, while Merce Cunningham isn’t best served by Rambert’s latest remixThe Royal’s Ballet’s The Sleeping Beauty goes down as easy as a violet cream-filled fondant. An unreconstructed, full-corps pageant complete with tiny pageboys in satin knickerbockers, the unironic staging obscures the satire of Tchaikovsky’s intricate score, which is served up with the bullishness of a Technicolor special at the MGM Grand.There is a notable lack of menace when bad fairy Carabosse curses Princess Aurora at her christening, simply because she wasn’t invited. Carabosse will be familiar to anyone who’s seen The Wizard of Oz or encountered an angry flamenco teacher. With her dusty Halloween dress and secondhand lace headpiece, Carabosse resembles a tipsy cosplay Catherine of Aragon crashing Anne Boleyn’s christening party for Elizabeth I. Continue reading...
