Inside February IMAGE: The Love Issue

Love is not a word you hear used in politics, or in the mainstream media, very often. But get your ear to the ground at any touchpoint recently, and it is the word on people’s lips. The strange and, to many, dark forces at work in current times have brought the sentiment front and centre. It’s on placards, everyone’s social feed, and on our minds. So for our February issue, we wanted to make it a burst of affection and emotion in all its guises.
