Everyone knows that Home Alone 2 is far superior to the original Home Alone. We’re familiar with the tropes, the food is more extravagant and the soundtrack was way better. And this is why I know we’re going to be more than ready for Lockdown Part 2- The Sequel: We’re here, we’re staying open and we’d love you to shop with us.
So, if I’m perfectly honest with myself things haven’t felt ‘right’ for a while. Politically, socially, you know, the big picture things. We all kept on acting up, eating out, buying the unnecessary. But, really, there was a niggle wasn’t there. A little ‘Is this ok?’ niggle. The Brexit divide that dragged on and was used as a quick way to shrug off problems seemed only symptomatic of more fundamental issues- from globalization, racism, economic insecurity, the climate crisis- it was all there. Simmering.
