  • Our share of the ''mounting NHS debt crisis' is even bigger than previously expected according to new figures. The technical term for the situation appears to be 'meltdown'.
  • Ken Livingstone has sent a 'message of support' to London's Muslim community to coincide with 70th anniversary of the defeat of Oswald Mosley's Blackshirts at Cable Street.
  • A Natural History Museum curator has discovered a new species of bird while leading an expedition to the remote Yariguies mountains in Columbia.
  • As you may have already heard, the South kicked the North's arse in yesterday's Run London race. This Londonist (South) completed the 10km in one hour and three minutes. While Londonist Hazel (North) managed it in 1:05 (and lost two toenails in the process).
  • Has anyone else heard anything of this night of 'non power'? So far all the links we've found seem to have a religious slant to them. Weird.
  • Image of orang-utan skeleton hanging from the ceiling of the Natural History Museum courtesy of MykReeve via the Londonist flickr group. See also his great image of the Thames Whale's dorsal fin in a jar,
