“Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps but you will.” – Barney Lake
“It’s a human story, it isn’t about the MONEY! And no, there wasn’t enough salacious nudity and thingies blowing up but it was excellent! I loved it.” – Renae Moneymaker
“I was taken in by the alluring and superficial charm of Wall Street 2, though [...]
There are, of course, Questions to Which the Answer is Yes; Well, D’Oh; Who Cares?; Dunno, and your stupid quiz isn’t going to tell me; and a special category to which the answer is, Could You Repeat the Question?
It’s that time of year again, when EA Sports and Konami unleash their latest, greatest attempts at recreating the beautiful game virtually.
Music has always served political functions, from fanfares announcing the splendour of great rulers to monkish chants inspiring religious awe to the heart-swelling anthems of radical movements, not to mention the simple bonding effects of collective singing and dancing. But New Labour’s more prosaic flirtation with Cool Britannia in the 1990s was an example of a more cynical relationship between politics and music, with politicians hoping to use the popularity of fashionable bands to align themselves with British youth.
Is there a prize for the worst gratuitous use of a Chilean miner metaphor in political sketches or columns tomorrow? Will anyone ask if counsellors are on hand to guide Liberal Democrats through the trauma of emerging from deep below the surface into the harsh light of reality? Who will wonder if Ed Miliband has [...]
I was in the Chamber for what promised to be one of those great House of Commons moments, Ed Miliband’s first Prime Minister’s Questions as Leader of the Opposition. It did not disappoint, as an occasion.

Becky Adlington’s swimming career had been quietly building momentum before she finally freestyled her way into the public eye, with a double gold medal victory at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and two gold and two bronze medals at the Delhi Commonwealth Games. In connection with Speedo’s Aqualab program I was invited to meet Adlington, fresh [...]
On the face of it we are seeing a big shake up at the top level of the BBC. In most organisations the announcement in quick succession of the departure of the boss’s second command and the marketing chief would be an indication of seismic change in the business. But the BBC, of course, is not like any other organisation. So I doubt whether these changes will make much difference at all.
Isn’t all this rolling Chilean mine news a bit too much? It’s miraculous that the 33 miners survived and that they’ve been rescued and all that – but blanket coverage on every news channel?
Before this all happened I’d never even thought about Chilean mines before. Why would I? But now I know what miners eat, [...]
My short profile of Sachin Tendulkar, the brilliant Indian batsman, for the Sports pages yesterday contained an appalling error.
I referred to how the Little Master has come of age during India’s “economic miracle”.
That this is an exhausted cliche is bad enough.
Alas, it’s worse than that. It’s completely untrue.
Miracles don’t exist, as David Hume pointed out in [...]
