On Saturday I made a rare visit to London.Â I realised that I have not been in central London for a long time: the last few times I was in London it was only Hammersmith for Sunday night comedy.Â It must be more than a year since I took a train into Victoria. What finally […]

Am I a bad parent?Â I was a bit disappointed to find out that while the student protests were going on in London our daughter was in London… …in a university lecture hall. Anyway, a good excuse to include a photo that is sure to become an all-time classic and feature in many election leaflets […]

Went to see Spizzenergi (again) tonight.Â I’m not keen on going ‘up west’ when I have to work the next day, but it was to mark 30 years since the first Spizzenergi incarnation, and having seen them on tour back then in 1979 I thought it would be good to make the effort. As always […]
