A PETA has become a buzzword because it is not a one-issue organisation. We watch the news, jump on stories and interject animal welfare issues into everything that we possibly can, from fashion and science to dog homelessness and how pigs become pork pies.

You can still turn the corner into Frith Street from Shaftesbury Avenue and find a place where the world is at peace with itself. Bar Italia is a jewel set in the rusted London crown. It's the fruit of immigrant toil, a place that makes a laughing stock of Farage and his followers.

Personality tests are enjoying an online resurgence. Previously a staple of tabloids, they fell out of favour as sceptics began to doubt the veracity of the 'If You Answered Mostly B...' scoring system... We're embracing these quizzes like someone who's filled in a 'Which Online Meme is For You?' questionnaire and got the answer 'Personality Tests'.

It is here in Milan, far north in the Bel Paese [Italy, the "beautiful country"], that a cultural pragmatism has attracted those of a more refined musical streak. And it is at Biko, a club not far from the throng of the city centre, that Trio Valore has convened to play to a Milanese crowd intent on devouring live music as would they their mammas' pasta e fagioli. It's a crowd of stylists who want to dance, and they do.

Anoushka learned from her father, Ravi, but as a teacher could not impart all that he knew. 'What I was privy to, being around him, is that he considered himself a student,' she tells me.
