Eye reflection
  • Residents vs. architects: Those who live in Robin Hood Gardens want the estate demolished, whilst architects fight to save “seminal” modernist buildings.
  • Your daily crime round-up: “Osama bin London” jailed indefinitely; cleaner who killed 94-year-old widow jailed for life; financial trader denies involvement in murder of wealthy writer.
  • We’re sensing a pattern here: Man scales Japanese embassy in London to protest Japanese whaling.
  • Met to build firearms training centre near Heathrow; increased security concerns for Olympic games cited as rationale.
  • Lewisham Council awards grant money to Stephen Lawrence Centre for stepped-up security following last month’s appalling vandalism.
  • And let’s see if we can’t end this on a light note: It’s not his penumbral privates which displeases this actor; that permission to use his image was not sought is what pricks his pride – and that’s not blowing the matter out of proportion.
