Weekend Round-Up

Here’s what we’ve learned this weekend whilst you’ve been taking tea with mother…

  • Greed, stupidity and a gambling addiction are not a good combination: a council housing official is duly jailed.
  • Aspiring immigrant mini-cabbies are to be asked to obtain a ’certificate of good conduct’ from their country of origin. Yeah, like this is really going to work.
  • Did Lucy really want to marry Mike, or did she just want to be on Capital Radio?
  • Sir Steve Redgrave is an all round good sport.
  • Weekend knife-crime round-up: not as bad as previous weeks, but can’t we have a week without any knives? Please, London?
  • There are rather a lot of people who don’t want to see closures at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup.
  • And this is what we think we will have learned by this time next week:

  • That we’re all silly sausages when it comes to our mothers: spending on crap-aphernalia will be at an all time high.
  • That there are just too many National Awareness Days for Londonist to assimilate. But we do like the look of National Bed Month.

    Have a restful one, Londoners.
