Populist: 31 January - 6 February

Handy links to the week's most popular posts, and a heads up on what's happening around London.

In the news:

  • Against the odds, the London Weekly made it into print yesterday but how long will it last?
  • Homeopathy: The London Overdose provoked discussion that slipped from science to porn in 18 easy steps
  • Battersea plans bounced back again
  • Expect evening and weekend closures on the Northern Line
  • But simmer with excitement at the prospect of escaping to Germany direct from St Pancras in future

    Around town:

  • The Borribles engineered a win in our best London novel poll but more interesting is the 115 strong reading list it created
  • Did you happen across any yellow pieces of paper in the wild this week?
  • The Trail of our Bread seduced us with their Evil menu, Daddy Donkey kindly shared their guacamole recipe and we stuffed our face with cheesecake at Rinkoffs
  • Shunt's opened, we've hot tips on rustling up a date for Valentine's Day and let you know about Green Drinks Suede and The Who are sold out but you can still get tickets to the other Teenage Cancer Trust gigs in March and we suggest you have a listen to Tiffany Page and Lazy Habits Time to book for the London Word Festival, take any old art down Art Bin, explore LGBT History Month, visit New Moons and Cell Mates in New Cross and spin some yarns at the Book Club in Hoxton

    Comment of the week:

    "What a patronising, reductive pile of twaddle, aimed, apparently, at making women look like silly, shallow little airheads. Call me crazy, but I vote based on policy, not on looks (I'll leave aside the - I think - preposterous notion that DC is remotely attractive)"

    BEL leads dissent on alleged "ladies choice" David Cameron.
