“welcome to the new wild west”

Never have I felt like celebrating something less than I feel like celebrating ‘freedom day’ – the biggest anti-climax since it turned out they were all actually dead in Lost the whole time (sorry for the decades-late spoiler). I’m not sure what I’d been imagining over the past 16 months, it certainly wasn’t bunting and party poppers, but I had hoped that when we emerged from lockdown and social distancing disappeared we would find ourselves in a world where Covid wasn’t a risk. A world where we all knew the rules of how to be. Instead we’re emerging into a new Wild West – ambiguous rules, furiously opposing camps and the sense that there could be a bust-up in the bar and chairs could go flying at any minute. So…

skye maddox, head groundsperson at the pig hotel

A ONE-DAY DIARY FROM FLAT WHITE TO LIGHTS OUT Skye, 30, is the head groundsperson at The Pig hotel in the South Downs. She lives in West Sussex with her partner and two children My alarm goes off… At 5.45am, but I always press snooze. Fifteen minutes later, I get up to get my children ready for school, quickly making a flat white and grabbing a chocolate protein bar for energy. After I’ve dropped the children off, I make sure I’ve got the right equipment on me, such as my gardening scissors, then I walk a couple of minutes to The Pig, ready for the day. I’m responsible for… Looking after the grounds surrounding The Pig hotel in the South Downs, our new outpost, which is set to open in September, and managing my team…

“sport belongs to all of us”

words: billie bhatia Sport made its big return this summer, and I couldn’t have been happier about it. The green lawns of Wimbledon carefully mowed to perfection after sitting barren for over a year were transformed into a meticulous backdrop for the famously white-clad players. Forehands down the line, mesmerising rallies, the oohs and aahs of a crowd gripped by every fiercely fought point brought back the welcome soundtrack to a thoroughly British summer. And after enduring an incredible absence, football stadiums found themselves back with a roaring crowd, united in uniform, cheering and chanting in a common goal to get England over the line. It was glorious, wasn’t it? Of course, until it wasn’t. The chants became racial slurs, and the colours that bound us faded into an all too…

the great anti-climax

feature After 16 months of pandemic life, restrictions have finally been lifted – so why don’t we feel like celebrating? Stylist'’s Hannah Keegan investigates Last week, a colleague told me a story that got right to the core of my feelings about so-called ‘freedom day’. It was the beginning of lockdown when a message from a neighbour in her road’s newly minted WhatsApp group lit up her phone. It read: “We should have a street party when all of this is over!” and she felt a smile spread across her face. “It reminded me of my grandma’s stories about VE Day in 1945 – everyone coming together to celebrate the end of a truly devastating period,” she said. “As someone who loves a party, I’ve found real psychological sustenance over the past…

“i’ve written resignation letters in the middle of the night”

feature Jess Phillips MP opens up about imposter syndrome, dealing with anxiety and why she’s determined to tear down the barriers that keep ‘normal people’ out of politics words: Fiona Cowood Jess Phillips is no ordinary politician. At a time when we’ve grown depressingly accustomed to waffle, lies, non-apologies and evasive answers, the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley says she’s desperate to treat the public with some respect. “I would really, really like the opportunity to be a minister of state, to make a mistake or a bad decision and be honest about it. I’d really like to say, ‘Fucking hell, that was shit, wasn’t it? Sorry – we tried something and it didn’t work. Let’s try something else.’” This is typical of Phillips’ unflinchingly honest and often funny take on political life.…

“help! i’ve lapsed into a second teenagehood”

feature Lockdowns unleashed our inner teenagers and now, with restrictions all but over, author Phoebe Luckhurst is wondering if hers will ever be contained It was on a sweaty, nauseous morning-after-the-night-before that I realised I might need to grow up. Again. The evening had started like any good Instagram Story: a casual glass of dry pinot on a sun-drenched rooftop in Peckham with a friend. It had ended, however, with a montage best consigned to history: namely, the pair of us exiting the wine bar long past midnight and winding up on a kerb on Rye Lane, swigging £7 newsagent prosecco straight from the bottle and – if memory serves, which it might not – cadging several cigarettes off passersby. I do know that when I got home at 2am, I tripped…
