Solar panels... but can you guess which building they're on? Photo / Richard Parmiter.

  • Boris Johnson opens first two Mayoral academies.
  • UCL boss: we don't pay cleaners living wage and we ain't going to.
  • Lutfur Rahman, recently booted off the Labour ticket for the Tower Hamlets mayorship, will run as an independent candidate, with Respect's support. Which means George Galloway won't be returning to London politics after all.
  • Roman Abramovich is spending £20 million on a private nightclub beneath Stamford Bridge. That's still £10 million less than he spanked on Andriy Shevchenko.
  • Arsenal could afford to do the same: they've announced record pre-tax profits.
  • Buckingham Palace went cap-in-hand to the Governement six years ago, asking for help paying the heating bills; they were knocked back.
