Bristol Rovers v Peterborough, League One, kick off 7.45
Lay under 1.5 goals at 4-1 with Betfair
We lost by going for at least two goals in the Milton Keynes v Peterborough game on Monday night – but did any of you watch it? It was an absolutely brilliant match which was end to end [...]
Next month’s Prospect (not online) reports that Professor Sir Michael Barber, head of the Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit 2001-05, author of Instruction to Deliver and partner at McKinsey, has been recruited by Michael Gove to be the next permanent secretary at the Department of Education.
Unfortunately, this turns out not to be true. I know that Gove would [...]
“Is this big foot? New video emerges of ‘ape man’.”
I told you, the Daily Mail has rumbled me. They have realised what I am up to, and are now doing it on purpose.
Is that going to stop me?
Number 543. And 544.

When he tweeted a couple of weeks ago, ‘Today I’m starring in my 1st adult movie,’ fans probably expected a bit of raunchiness. But when the video for All Over The House dropped at the weekend, raunchy proved to be an understatement.
Ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone will soon be rolling into town with his Formula One circus. As he trots the world, from Melbourne to Japan and Bahrain (perhaps) to Silverstone, he will bring with him beautiful people, playboy drivers and billionaire team owners.
There is so much to be found within the big top of a Grand Prix [...]
This week has been all about coming back down to earth with a big, muscle-aching bump. After the elation — and elevation — of my running weekend in the Highlands it was back to pounding the pavements and racking up the miles in a far more urban setting.
At this stage of the training, now only [...]

RBS has very substantial investments in the fossil fuel economy with its financing for coal and gas attracting justifiable attacks. I am a supporter of Climate Week and have also supported the campaign to change RBS’s policies.
