In the aftermath of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, three psychologists reflect on complacency, emotional decision-making and how we might reconcile.
It’s been hard to miss the fallout from Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi’s divorce this week. Despite all of the dirty laundry being thrown around in public, I still find the defining image to be the photo of Nigella with her husband’s hands around her throat. Charles Saatchi’s initial explanation was that it was just a playful tiff. While I appreciate such images can be misleading, Nigella certainly did not look as if she was playing. The police agreed. Sadly it’s a scene that is regularly played out in other, less public, settings.
