There’s something about the simple things in life (and the kitchen) that makes me really happy and this cheesy classic is one of them.
Suzanne Moore in The Guardian detected a trace of hypocrisy in some of the coverage of the death of Bob Crow at the age of 52:
The shock of Bob Crow’s death was closely followed by another peculiar aftershock: those who had hated him while he was alive queued up to praise him.

I’ve been lucky enough to see Big Buck’s score twice at Cheltenham. Indeed I once saw someone (successfully) place a £30,000 win bet on him in the Betfair tent. Nice. The issue here revolves around whether Big Buck’s can regain the crown that injury denied him defending last season.
Serious entry into the low carbon business, renewable energy today is cheap. In fact in many cases it is cheaper than conventional energy.
Further to my previous post, a footnote on Ed Miliband’s article in the Financial Times (limited free access). He says that “ever closer union” – the phrase that David Cameron wants to excise from the EU treaties – is “not Labour’s vision for Europe”. And he wants to transfer power to national parliaments.

Even Reuters, normally so reliable, reported that he was on “an annual salary of 145,000 pounds ($241,200)”
There’s something not quite right at Barcelona.
A little while ago I met up with Tensnake (aka Marco Niemerski) for a chat about his album, Glow, which was released yesterday. We spent over an hour together, discussing his history, the debut LP and how he found love through the project. Here’s an excerpt from that interview.
The Labour modernisers are alive and still kicking. As well as Stella Creasy, who wants to extend consumer rights to the public sector, and Dan Jarvis and Steve Reed, who are tough on crime and tough on the causes of crime, there is Liz Kendall.
The Shadow Minister for Care and Older People (you know, the [...]
