As promised, last week was a big one for Brexit. In my last column, I outlined what was planned, in this one I’ll recount what actually happened. The first of three important votes this week was on Tuesday, parliament was set to vote on May’s proposed Brexit deal…again...

March always goes in like a lion, but this year particularly so with a Mercury retrograde near the beginning of the month. That means that nitty gritty logistical things could go wrong, so make sure to double check all emails, texts, and plans. Despite the retrograde,...

The spectacle of the ancient Greek male body is as enduring and relevant now as it was in 500 BC. The ideal image of man, largely sourced from Homeric legend, still forms the basis of our ideas of masculinity — not only the physical form of a stereotypical Homeric hero...

Firstly, let me take up where I left off last week.  You may remember that last Friday it appeared that Mrs May was about to be toppled by members of her own party, with pantomime villain Jacob Rees-Mogg as ringleader.  Well by the early stages of this week it became c...

On Thursday this week, a senior Conservative Party source told the BBC’s political editor, Laura Kuenssberg, that “the revolution is eating its children.” And with that summed up some of the most dramatic days in British politics so far this year. To get to the root of...

This week I moved into the Courtauld library.  Not literally, although the number of hours I’ve spent tucked away in its nooks and crannies totalled up to considerably more than the time spent at home.  If it weren’t for looming essay deadlines, however, I wouldn’t hav...

Yes, that’s right everybody, we’re only just at the halfway point of Trump’s first (and hopefully only) term in office.  And that means it’s midterm election time, when all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and one third of the Senate seats are up for grabs.  A...

The past two years of American politics have shown us that the most extreme outcome is not necessarily the least likely one.  The man who once tried to trademark the phrase ‘You’re fired!’ is now the president of the United States.  Anything seems possible, even that t...

Halloween was not the only terrifying (k)night this week, as Sir Philip Green once again reared his greasy head.  You may remember the Topshop-owning tycoon from such scandals as the recent collapse of British Home Stores (BHS), which Green sold for £1 in 2015 as it be...

If you know me well, you may well be aware that I like chairs.  An awful lot.  And if you don’t know me well at all – hello, I’m Emilia, and chairs are very much my thing. 

I don’t want this column to become the usual spiel you’d find on design websites, insid...
