If you’d asked us (many, many years ago) what mums did, we’d have probably answered something along the lines of cooking, housework, shopping, looking after kids, and perhaps in our more enlightened moments, even holding down a job. Thankfully, these days we have moved on from the stereotypical views of our childhood. However, although we … Continue reading Casting a long shadow – the rise of the online vigilante
If, like us, you enjoyed the BBC legal drama The Split, you may remember the slightly shady PI, Max Lacey, who provided Hannah with the evidence she needed to confront errant husband Nathan.

Moreover, there is no single sector where women are … Continue reading Yes, we do mind the gap…
It’s OK, you don’t have to answer this rather bizarre question (of which more later…). Try these instead: Would you like to know what you’d look like if you were the opposite sex? In a film of your life, which celebrity would play you? What would your face look like on the cover of a … Continue reading Does Mark Zuckerberg like Aquafaba?
Imagine the scene: it’s late on a Saturday night; you are leaving a bar with a group of friends. You’ve had a couple of gin and tonics and a few glasses of wine. You walk to a taxi rank with your friends, and as you do so, you witness a woman being mugged. … Continue reading The London Private Investigator writes: In Vino Veritas…?
