The Shard, #WhenIGetOlder, Robin van Persie, John Lydon: Why are they trending?
Tonight Europe’s tallest building, the £450m Shard will open in London. The show is expected to feature lasers, searchlights and a host of dignitaries including the Prime Minister of Qatar and the Duke of York. Do we detect sarcasm mixed in with @jonhorsley1’s excitement? : “The #Shard is officially open! At last, some good news for multi-billionaires in need of posh flats in London!”
Robin van Persie
The Arsenal striker continues to generate headlines after announcing his decision not to renew his contract. Manchester City and Juventus have both expressed an interest in the 28-year-old. @daraobriain is a philosophical mood: “Great. Found the Higgs Boson, lost Robin Van Persie, The universe balances itself out yet again.”
Question Time / John Lydon / #menschpunksongs
The former Sex Pistols frontman will be spicing up the Question Time panel tonight with his (hopefully) unpredictable views on current affairs. How will he get on with fellow panellist Louise Mensch? @JimHigginson suggests a musical collaboration “#menschpunksongs Neoliberalism in the UK.”Arsenal, John Lydon, old age, pensions, question time, Robin Van Persie, sex pistols, Shard
