Copycats: why street food vendors are fighting among themselves 23.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Street food’s DIY, community ethic encourages vendors to share resources – but when their logos and branding are reappropriated, it’s gone a step too far Street food was always about the spirit of sharing. Traders, parking up at the side of a road (or in the middle of a field) and happily lending out their socket sets and jump leads to fellow traders. But, as of late, the sharing has been getting out of hand. Traders are making off with each other’s property – intellectual property – and passing off recipes, logos and ideas as their own. It’s getting nasty. The most vocal is The Ribman, purveyor of fine ribs and the creator of Holy Fuck hot sauce . Maybe it was just a coincidence when a burrito place in Glasgow came up with their own ‘Holy Fuck’ hot sauce. In a virtually identical bottle. Or maybe they knew that the name ‘Holy Fuck’ wasn’t covered under trademark law because it was deemed too offensive. When The Ribman berated them on Twitter, the burrito place changed the name to ‘Fuck a ...

The Joy of Six: British boxing underdogs 20.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
From Richard Dunn’s gutsy bout with Muhammad Ali to Dereck Chisora’s near-impossible attempt to dethrone Vitali Klitschko, via Joe Calzaghe, David Haye and more, half-a-dozen British boxers who were up against it M urray’s only hope of beating Gennady Golovkin is with a bazooka This weekend, two British fighters challenge for world titles against rather heavily favoured opposition. On Saturday night in Monaco, Martin Murray will face power-punching middleweight sensation Gennady Golovkin for the WBA title. Golovkin’s meteoric rise through the division has seen him dispatch opponents with relative ease and accumulate a 90% knockout ratio. While this will be Murray’s third stab at winning world honours, he goes into the fight a 14-1 underdog. On the same night, Liverpool’s Paul Smith will travel to Berlin to fight WBO super-middleweight king Arthur Abraham in a repeat of their last fight in September. Despite pushing the champion surprisingly close, Smith was on the wrong end of a lopsided unanimous ...

Dulwich Hamlet hope anti-homophobia in football campaign is blueprint to others at top of game 17.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Non-league club’s friendly with Stonewall is worth celebrating, but only serves to highlight the antipathy by many at the elite level

On a cold February night last Wednesday, Dulwich Hamlet’s Champion Hill stadium was vibrant, with home fans bellowing chants from the terraces as the south London team roared to a 6-0 win.

But it was not the scoreline that was remarkable about last week’s fixture, rather their opponents: Stonewall FC, Britain’s top-ranking gay football team and current Gay Football World Champions. The ground-breaking friendly, the first of its kind in the country, represented arguably the biggest ever statement by a UK club in the crusade against homophobia, symbolic of the notion that fans and players can coexist with each other, on and off the pitch, regardless of sexual orientation.

EastEnders: 30 years of booze, fights and faaaamily 15.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The characters, feuds and doof-doofs that have kept us coming back to Albert Square since 1985 “Hello, princess.” When the shouty Cockney miseryfest launched in 1985, Queen Vic licensees Dennis and Angie Watts soon became its surprise hit characters. The Fowler/Beale clan were intended to be the drama’s emotional centre but the warring Watts’ stormy marriage was way more compelling. He was womanising hardman Dirty Den: a part-time gangster, forever sneaking off to see posh mistress Jan and impregnating Michelle Fowler on the pub carpet. She was Walford’s answer to Sue Ellen from Dallas: glam but brittle, all shoulder pads, batwing sleeves, blue eyeshadow, faux-fur and mohair, gulping down gin from the optics while her bubble perm trembled neurotically. Together with giant poodle Roly and stroppy teen daughter Sharon (handily, the two had matching hairstyles), Den ’n’ Ange became a tabloid obsession. On Christmas Day, 1986, half the nation slumped on their sofas in a turkey coma to watch Den snarlingly ...

Mackmania! Charles Rennie Mackintosh's genius shines in his first architecture retrospective 11.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
He’s been stereotyped as difficult and uncompromising, but there’s no denying Mackintosh’s raw talent in this definitive look at his architectural drawings It’s an unusual affliction, but some architects’ reputations have suffered from simply being too popular. Charles Rennie Mackintosh is a name now likely to make you nauseous with visions of swirling stained-glass roses and geometric black grids, slatted high-back chairs and fussy fireplace surrounds. His trademark motifs are plastered on everything from bags and bookmarks to tapestries and tea towels, the chintzy staples of many a Past Times catalogue. If Mackintosh had received a cut from the slew of merchandise sold under his name, he would have died a wealthy man – rather than in poverty-stricken obscurity in self-imposed exile in the south of ...
