Weekend Round-Up

Here’s what we’ve learned this weekend whilst you’ve been stuffing your faces with kedgeree, hot cross bunnies and eggy-weggies:

  • There has been a huge march for Tibet in central London.
  • Red Ken is awfully-Green-Ken these days, and he’s pretty pissed off with the government’s apathy and hostility to his general eco-scheme of things.
  • The Church just isn’t hot news any more: following a priestly mugging in East London last week, it would seem that attacks on vicars and church property receive little attention.
  • Our Easter weekend crime round-up sees a fatal stabbing in Kingsland High Street, a fatal beating at Sudbury Hill Tube Station, and a murder in Harlow. Although police are cracking down on gun totin’ critters this Easter. So that’s alright then.
  • Um, we suspect that you might already have noticed this (unless you are reading this in the Caribbean, you jammy so-and-so) the weather isn’t very nice. Londonist’s fingers are almost too cold to type. AND there seem to be jitters about flooding.
  • And this is what we think we will have learned by this time next week:

  • That Easter spending was way down this year:
  • That Easter temperatures were even downer than Easter spending:
  • That Easter faith is the downest of the lot:
  • That the Easter bunny is friggin’ well going away next Easter.
  • Have a lovely, chocolate-coated, fondant-filled week.

    Thanks to our editor-at-large for the Tibetan protest piccie.
