Swivel-eyes, Eagle Eye

Swivel-eyes

I am sorry that I have upset Owen Jones, who takes exception to my suggestion that he fell foul of Godwin’s Law (which, for new readers, holds that the first person in an argument to make reference to the Nazis loses).

Is the Japanese earthquake the latest natural disaster to have been caused by a ’supermoon’?

Questions to Which the Answer is No Bad Taste Special Issue. Number 532, asked by Guess Which Newspaper.
Thank you to Graham, who suggests further questions that are very likely to appear in tomorrow’s GWN:

An alternate CV, Notebook

An alternate CV

For the 2.5 million of us who are currently out of work, there always awaits the enervating task of recompiling one’s CV for critical view.
