I assume it’s David Lammy, whose slightly hunched, broad-shouldered profile is very similar to that of Winston Churchill in his statue on the other side of the square.

Maybe he was distracted and hadn’t seen it. Who was the reporter?

Lovely review in The Times today of Sonia Purnell’s biography of SOE agent Virginia Hall. I’m thrilled for Sonia who has established herself as one of Britain’s foremost biographers.

Blimey, I can’t remember Hezza ever joining a march in his life before, though no doubt someone will correct me

But I do hope Newsnight’s special on Monday on the 2009 MPs’ expenses scandal gives lot of credit to Heather Brooke, who submitted the original FOIA requests.

Steve Smith is such a brilliant, witty, wonderfully maverick reporter. The BBC should double his pay, and use him twice as much!

“They’re taking him to prison for the colour of his hair”. Such a striking line. I remember how, when I was a boy, my mother read us that poem many times

Sad to report that former ITN programme editor, Chris Barlow, a stalwart of the great News At One in the 1970s and ‘80s, has died. A wise, erudite editor, a great journalist & delightful companion

I don't wish to be rude but while I'm happy to do things for free for charities etc, if you're an organisation/company with a lot of money, please don't ask me to do something "pro bono". I am a freelance journalist who, relative to your organisation, does not have a lot of money

“An astonishing debut” says Anthony Beevor on the fronts. He’s right. And there are many equally good quotes from other leading historians on the back. I’ve had the privilege of reading it and it’s a brilliant book, a wonderful read. Buy Bouverie shares now.
