Here’s what we’ve learned this weekend whilst you’ve been slapping on that Factor 15:
Now that that annual backstabbing fest otherwise known as Big Brother is underway, the knives are out for Croydoner Alexandra, who is apparently dating a man accused of murder.
Yesterday’s anti-knife and gun rally was understandably well-attended
…even if a debate on the issue in the Commons shamefully wasn’t.
A huge fire in South London left thousands without power
overnight on Saturday (although Londonist gathers most has now been restored)...
…whilst another fire, at flats in Mile End, proved fatal.
South London’s night stalker seems to be back in action.
Lock up your grannies.
Creepy crawlies have had a good week in the press: first there was the Kentucky Fried Caterpillar, and this weekend brings us Tesco’s maggoty duck eggs.
Time to book tickets for you and your cherie amour – Stevie Wonder’s coming to the O2 in September.
Police have struck gold during their ‘appropriation’ of safety deposit boxes. Um, well, what are people supposed to keep in them: fly papers?
And here’s what we think we might have learned by next week:
That there is a lot more to come on the topic of mayoral spending irregularities
That this BB is the boringest yet…
On a more cheerful front tho, we don’t think that the world will end this week…
