Anna Nicholas: My column

Anna Nicholas’s views on being muted by a new ‘woke’ belief system and how Brexit affects British businesses operating in the EU.

An employee of German biopharmaceutical company CureVac, demonstrates research workflow on a vaccine for the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease at a laboratory in Tuebingen, Germany.

At last there is hope!

But honestly, is any of this feasible? Are governments really that bright? Columnist and writer Anna Nicholas thinks it’s very doubtful.

My Column

Dominic Cummings.

Cummings-Gate

The antics of Cummings and his kind has rightfully enraged those who steadfastly
adhered to government guidelines even at the expense of never being able to say goodbye
to those they loved.

My Column

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson takes part during the 'Clap for our Carers' campaign in support of Britain's National Health Service (NHS) in 10 Downing Street.

What a muddle

I’m not sure whether Boris Johnson has just thrown all his cards in the air and handed the rulebook to a bunch of mad men but it certainly seems that way.

My Column

Professor Neil Ferguson.

Brainless professors

It’s good to get some laughs during lockdown. It certainly beats the relentless drudgery of the day to day corona news.

My Column

We can finally leave our homes and for one hour go running!

Freedom?

I was confused about the one km radius edict. Did that mean that I’d have to run around in circles for one hour?

My Column

Captain Tom Moore on completion of his fund raising walk.

Walking the walk

At subliminal level, the public is reverting to caveman mode, unconsciously thinking of survival and how best to cope in a world of uncertainty.

My Column

To mask or not to mask?

Hospital Pizza Express

The haves and have-nots will have a totally different experience at this time, just like the passengers did on the fateful Titanic.

My Column

Had I not been in lockdown I would have: climbed three Tramuntana peaks.

Life goes by

For now, this is a golden opportunity to listen to silence, embrace one’s family and friends and reach out to those in need even virtually.

My Column

Madrid City Council thanked the people of Madrid for their "civic-mindedness in this serious health crisis" with two flags displayed on the façade of the Palacio de Cibeles, one with the colours of the Spanish flag and a 'Thank you to all', and the other with the ribbon worn by the mayor, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, on his social networks.

Comrades in arms

I have been impressed by the plucky spirit of the expats on Majorca and the social media community as a whole.

My column

Majorca's reality TV presenter Caroline Flack.

The fragility of life

Calls for more media control after Caroline Flack's death, coal and wood fire ban, homeless people in Palma and sharing trend is catching up.

My column

Flowers and gifts for Valentine's Day are displayed for sale at a local store in Commerce, Texas.

Braving it out

Weekly columnist writes about the carefully crafted PR move, Valentine's Day fervor, wild dogs on the loose and the long goodbye by Harry and Meghan.
