I was reading Amiri Baraka’s poems when he died. I’m reading One Hundred Years of Solitude and Gabriel García Márquez has died. Perhaps for the hat-trick I should read Tony Benn’s diaries and see if it has the reverse effect on the deceased. It is Easter after all. But I’ll probably just blow it on Tony Blair.


  • I commend the BBC on their wise decision to give the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge's unborn child a platform in their general election debate.
  • "Rapper Pitbull developing reality TV series with Michelle Obama and Paul McCartney" is my router-unplugging headline of the week.
  • "Sorry mate, I really have found more meaning in human resources training" - Lembit Opik every night on the phone to a desperate Nick Clegg.
  • Perhaps the BBC's exclusion of the Greens from political debate is to counterbalance their inclusion of the royal family in news coverage.
