‘They’re not going to bully me’
We sit down with one of the UK's first female Muslim MPs, plus the rest of our bumper newsletter
Dear members: welcome to this Friday edition on what is — understatement of the century — a very blustery day, courtesy of Storm Eunice. Hope your hatches are battened down; you’ve managed to persuade your boss to work from home and are ensconced in a pile of throws on your sofa! Today we’ve packed in:
Mollie writing an ode to the divisive but long-running nightclub Fifth Ave (RIP), gone but not yet forgotten.
Dani’s interview with Bolton South East’s MP Yasmin Qureshi, who was one of the first female Muslim MPs to be elected in the UK.
“At Home With…” takes us to meet Chorltonian and Miller Dave Wilson, who invites us in for a cup of tea.
This weekend’s to do list is replete with photorealism, multilingual poetry, wild food foraging, plus a typically vibrant performance by the Hallé.
