The news

  • I don't think it's wrong that teachers and public servants went on strike. They're protecting their interests, no different to anyone else. But that's also the problem. Both sides talk about fairness and right and wrong and make out like they're on the side of the angels, and it's all guff. It's collective bargaining, let 'em do the dance, and then get on with it.

  • It may be that Dominique Strauss-Kahn isn't a rapist after all, but there seems little doubt that he is and always be a pervy old geezer. Maybe that will help with his presidential bid.

  • Poor Andy Murray. Really. Poor Andy Murray.

  • Poor Bombardier, last UK trainmaker and jobs lost and what is the world coming to &c &c. This column in the Evening Standard a few days ago points out that Bombardier is part of the reason why the tube is so shite. Not making light of people losing jobs, but help the jobless, let a company making a crap product go under and let Londoners get some decent trains, please.

  • If the Tories want to win the next election they can buy airtime and just play this video clip over and over and over and over again. Which, since Milliband says the same thing over and over and over again, would make Milliband look exponentially ridiculous. (A parallelised version. Hehehe).
