I fully accept the ingredient/name criticism, as I'm also a member of the food police when it comes to mutilation of traditional Italian dishes. So yes, it's a bastardisation, but it's *my* bastardisation and it was delicious.

A New Zealand sauvignon blanc. We only drink wine from countries that have kept new cases under 100 per day throughout their outbreak.

I have Italian friends and family, and have accepted that I will be cancelled. It was worth it.

Yup. Same as standard carbonara in that sense. Give it a go! 🙂

Brexit and gender, but age? Elderly much more likely to mask than any other age group.

Swapped out cream for soft cheese. Controversial but I regret nothing.

Tonight calls for a revival of the dinner pics. Salmon carbonara (homemade tagliatelle obv). 12/10 would make and eat again an unreasonabe number of times.

I mean, when the national figure is 36%, 15 percentage points is *a lot*. And as you can see from the chart, no other socio/demographic/geographic split comes anywhere near.

Definitely think this goes *much* deeper than elite signalling, with soc/psych a big part of it where masks not mandatory. e.g British Social Attitudes survey found authoritarians much more likely to say we believe too often in science over feelings

I can’t — these are all the most granular breaks available.

5) also spoke to Prof , who’s been digging into the clinical, social & behavioural evidence on masks and feels British government has a lot to answer for in its mixed and at times anti-scientific-consensus messaging Full story:

4) However we also shouldn’t tar all Brits with the same brush. YouGov data shows mask-wearing is: • More common in London (by a long way) and among the elderly, Lab/Remain voters, Scots and women • Less common in Northern England, Con/Leave voters and men

3) But messaging around masks is also key. Studies show when people are told masking up is altruistic — helps others — they’re more keen to wear them. Research also shows masks’ main utility *is* protecting others. But this understanding is less common in UK than most countries

2) Why? A big factor is masks are still not mandatory in UK public spaces. This despite dozens of studies showing that masks — including homemade ones — reduce transmission risk

1) Months into an airborne disease epidemic that has already killed tens of thousands, only 36% of Brits are wearing masks in public spaces. Far lower than vast majority of peer countries, including all of Asia, most of Europe, & US. Only Nordics & Aus are even more mask-averse

NEW with : why are so few people in the UK wearing masks? We dug into the numbers, the science and the nuance to see what’s going on Story here: Thread follows:
