Okay, it’s a money making and marketing scheme, much like the NFL games that have been taking place at Wembley the past couple of years. But who cares – it means genuine, something-to-play-for top class basketball here in England, and that can’t be a bad thing.
I had a very strange journey to work this morning. I walked out of my apartment in Bangalore, along the pavement at the side of the road, and to the cab rank where the autos were all in a neat row, out of the way of other traffic in an area designated by painted [...]
I have just had one of those near-life-changing moments. One of my most solid political convictions was nearly overturned this morning.

It was always going to be an improvement on England’s woeful experience in South Africa. I still cannot believe the blind support Fabio Capello is receiving but give the manager and players credit on Friday. 4-0 is a very good scoreline in a competitive match.
Bulgaria were clever but Jermain Defoe scored [...]
My good colleague and fellow Eagle Eye blogger Ben Chu has asked the question, “Is the British press biased against Blair?” in the hope of making an unexpected entry in my well-known series.
I am afraid his application has been rejected by the committee, on the grounds that the Pope’s religion is well known. Ben makes [...]
