Apartment Therapy
a few seconds
I once lived in a London apartment with five other girls, one of whom made "fudge" once a week: marshmallows and chocolate chips melted in the microwave and spread into a baking dish. The girls would come home punchdrunk on cheap vodka and British accents and hack at the congealed mess with forks, fingers, whatever. These dishes sat in the kitchen for weeks, faux-fudge finding a home in a plastic bowl, a wok, whatever was clean, until it wasn't clean, none of it, and I lost my mind a bit and piled all the dirty dishes and orphaned socks and dog-eared books in front of the door of the offending roommate while she slept and then didn't speak to her for the rest of the three-month stay.

By way of some consolation, and it really is some little comfort, we thought we'd offer a reminder of what it was like for Leicester City to win at Arsenal. Remember, City have not won a league game against the Gunners in north London since 1973. That winless streak was extended on Wednesday night when City went down to a predictable 1-0 defeat, albeit in controversial circumstances. You have to go back to September 8, 1973, for City's last victory at Arsenal. Read more: City without a...

All of which might sound like hubris from the Tories when not so much as a postal vote has been cast. But Labour MPs are talking of anyone with a majority under 9,000 being under threat and one Labour former Cabinet minister said that Labour MPs who held less than 45% share of the vote in the last general election were under threat. Chatting to voters in South London this lunchtime I found them surprisingly unsure which political leader's slogan was strong and stable government in the national interest. Quite a few thought it might be Jeremy Corbyn's slogan. But when you asked people how they see Theresa May, quite a few say strong. Deborah Mattinson, who worked on every Labour general election campaign from 1987 to 2005, focus grouped swing voters throughout the last election. She remembers towards the end some of them saying that they were sick to death of hearing the Tory slogan long term economic plan.

This is the first in a new monthly series of short films about London-based makers by filmmaker William Scothern —we're calling them Made in London . The first film is about Archie Proudfoot , an artist and sign painter whose work uses the techniques and the aesthetics of traditional signage to explore our relationship with language. Watch: Having graduated from studying a degree in English Literature during a recession, Archie went in search of work that would satisfy his yearning for an interesting job'. It was quite soon after the financial crash of 2008, and the employment sector was not great, he says. If you wanted an interesting job, you were going to have to put in quite a lot of time unpaid. And I thought, well I'll just invest that time in myself. He specializes in the reverse-glass gilding process, often choosing to isolate a single word or phrase in the grandeur of gold, examining our emotional response to it, as well as the geometry and physical interplay of the letterforms themselves.
