    Linguistic utopia

    A nation of nations, where different languages coexist, where children grow up speaking one at home and another at school, can only be advantageous, surely? No, not when politics comes into the equation

    Nil by mouth

    Direct conversation is a skill that's being steadily tarnished by a tsunami of written messages and emojis plus those interminable monologues that people record for each other

    If only our votes counted

    Imagine that in exchange for their vote Malaga MPs could demand that the government be fair to their constituency, just as the Catalan, Basque and Navarre representatives can

    What the guy doesn’t see

    After a few months of seat-giving-uppery, it slowly dawned on me that I was always the first - very often the only - one to offer. How selfish, I harrumphed to myself and resolved, next time, to stare out of the window and not budge, just see what happened
