  • National Uniion of Students uses Facebook to overturn HSBC charges. Are you listening Bob Crow? Are you?
  • Speaking of which, Metronet may be 'hard to sell' because of its equator-sized debts. To use 2005 parlance, 'who'd have thunk it?'.
  • Also up for sale: that massive annual arms fair hosted by Reed-Elsevier. Protests, public pressure and a well-judged bit of internal lobbying have persuaded the company to sell the event. Like the Metronet sale, this one looks as attractive as a turd-smeared cache of Jim Davidson videos.
  • £400,000 clock stolen. Police are looking for three blind mice.
