Brilliant diary story by Matthew Bell in today’s Independent on Sunday:
Residents of Hampstead are up in arms after a commemorative frieze of George Orwell’s face was stolen from a wall marking the location of Booklover’s Corner, the second-hand shop where he worked in the 1930s.

Whether one plays to win or plays to simply play doesn’t bother me one whit. If you can’t win in sport, you lose. I don’t want India to win in cricket, Reading or East Bengal clubs in football, or Roger Federer in tennis at any cost; I want them to win at all costs.

The ComRes poll for tomorrow’s Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror dashes Labour’s pre-conference hopes of going into the lead:

He has a short article in Parliamentary Brief this month, which has the best three-paragraph encapsulation of what happened at the 2010 election I have read:
We have a ComRes poll in The Independent on Sunday tomorrow (shared with the Sunday Mirror), which offers a snapshot of the state of public opinion after the party conference season and before the Comprehensive Spending Review.
Compare and contrast, paying particular attention to the ways in which the authors express support of and opposition to the proposition.
