The Mary Wollstonecraft statue in Newington Green has been a target of controversy since it was first erected. Some people have criticised it for being an abstract depiction of the female figure, rather than a lifelike representation of Wollstonecraft. Others have criticised it for it including a naked body – claiming the design to be ‘disrespectful to women’ and to Wollstonecraft’s achievements.  Well, folks, the memorial is not naked any more. Someone has bravely dressed the nude figure in a rather groovy purple gown and belt (complete with a large-scale parrot print). Although the dress looks like it may have originally been a tea towel, we’ve certainly seen worse fashion moments around town.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by Andrew Panatti (@lightningwagg) Is this a public gesture to keep the ‘mother of feminism’ warm – after all, she might be feeling the January frost like the rest of us? Is it a protest against the naked human body? Is it a protest against the monument? As always, the £143,000 statue is succeeding in providing a healthy dose of drama to Newington Green.  The heat is on for the British Museum to give back the Parthenon Marbles. Doing Veganuary? We ask experts how sustainable fake meat is.

Ever stared at the pattern on the seats of Piccadilly line trains and thought: you know what, I’d like to wear that? Well, you’re in luck. Adidas has teamed up with Arsenal FC and TfL to create the ultimate collab for Arsenal fans, tube fans and... Arsenal and tube fans. The new collection takes inspiration from the seat pattern, also known as a moquette, which appears on the Piccadilly line seats. The range includes an adult jersey and a youth jersey, plus a reversible padded vest and trousers, both of which feature the Arsenal tube station roundel. Photograph: Adidas The new designs will be worn by Arsenal players as they warm up ahead of games between now and the end of the season. The clothing celebrates Arsenal tube station, the only Underground station to be named after a football club. Fun fact: it used to be called Gillespie Road before it was changed in 1932. As part of the campaign, Adidas has also teamed up with London artist and Arsenal fan Reuben Dangoor, who’s created a limited-edition Oyster card. Anyone who buys an item from the new range will have the chance of getting one of these cards, pre-loaded with £15. It’s not the first time Adidas has collaborated with TfL. Back in 2018, the brand created a limited-edition pair of trainers inspired by the tube. It’s surely only a matter of time before the Adidas X TfL streetwear collection drops. TfL says the Elizabeth line is set to launch this year... finally. A big chunk of the Northern line is closed for 17 we

Boris Johnson has announced an end to Plan B, which means that measures including face coverings, vaccination passports and working from home are no longer compulsory from Wednesday January 26. But even though it will no longer be compulsory to wear a mask on public transport elsewhere in the UK, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has confirmed that they will still be mandatory on TfL services – arguing that they reduce the risk of virus transmission, and help to improve traveller confidence. ‘If we have learnt anything from this pandemic, it is that we must not get complacent and undo all our hard work and sacrifices,’ Khan said. ‘That’s why face coverings will remain a condition of carriage on TfL services. I’m asking everyone in our capital to do the right thing and continue to wear a face covering when travelling on TfL services to keep us all protected and to prevent further restrictions from being necessary later down the line.’ Omicron does seem to be on the run from London, with both cases and hospital admissions dropping significantly since last week. ‘If the data is right, let’s get out of Plan B,’ Khan has said. But his note of caution on face coverings comes as a welcome contrast to Boris Johnson’s hurry to ditch measures. And if it means that the glasses wearers of the Underground have to endure foggy lenses for a few months more, so be it. Everything we know about Sadiq Khan’s proposed £2 daily driving tax. TfL says the Elizabeth line is set to launch this year... finally
