Reflections from the march on New Scotland Yard, Notebook

Reflections from the march on New Scotland Yard

There are huge positives to take from the Smiley Culture demonstration on Saturday. An under-represented section of society took to the streets to demand freedom, justice and an end to police brutality.

No arrests were made; the people were organised, united and refusing to be silent.

The column I wrote in November pronouncing the death of the Alternative Vote [...]

Premier League review: Protests about Kuyt’s leveler can’t mask Arsenal’s great flaw, Sport

Premier League review: Protests about Kuyt’s leveler can’t mask Arsenal’s great flaw

Forget Arsene Wenger’s immature touch-line tantrum.
Liverpool’s late, late equaliser cannot mask the profound flaw of Arsenal’s side. A consistent, muscular, no-nonsense force in central defence is so desperately needed in red and white colours. Only after splashing some cash on a back-line marshal will the North Londoners be able to play with substance as well [...]

What with Avatar and the ensuing 16 month wave of “tentpole” movies selling their flimsy plot premises on the back of hi-tech 3D jiggery-pokery, it’s comforting to report the imminent arrival of a fresh wave of Hollywood films designed to appeal to the committed luddites among us.
