  2. Two planes down in one day

    A Hawker Hunter - a beautiful plane which should on no account be dropped - seems to have been ridden into the ground at Shoreham Airshow after an aerobatic loop, at which point it ploughed across a very crowded A27. The pilot may be the luckiest man on the planet if reports of his reaching...

  5. Roasting

    The White House correspondents’ dinner happened again. This idea of roasting, from what I gather, started back in the fifties or sixties as an equivalent of the best man's wedding speech, made between friends. A poke in the ribs with words. Something to amuse. What happened this week is...

  6. 20 years of the Good Friday Agreement

    I felt it needed an acknowledgement. The process may be stalled at present with the deadlock at Stormont but I saw a stat that really illustrated what it has achieved: In the 20 years before the Good Friday Agreement 1,500 people were killed as a result of the Troubles. In the 20 years since...

  12. Plastics

    "WHO launches health review after microplastics found in 90% of bottled water" I bet more than 90% of bottles in which water is sold are made from plastics. I bet the plastics found in the bottles are the same as the bottles are made of. I bet they could find plasticizers too if they...

  15. What just happened this last weekend?

    We had Davos, and Macron in particular making a bid for leadership in Europe (probably a good thing but does it mean much?) and also Trump proclaiming his brilliance. Big business liked it, mostly. We had a Trump interview with Morgan in which he claimed to get lots of fan mail from Brits and...
