Weekend Round-Up


Here's what we've learned this weekend whilst you've been wondering whether it's too soon to start Christmas shopping:

The sad stuff:

  • A teenage boy was shot dead in Plaistow on Saturday morning.
  • An 11 year old girl who fell down the stairs at her Bethnal Green school has died.

    The annoying stuff:

  • A miraculous escape for EDF as Ofgem somehow fails to fine them for the Dartford outage. Hm.
  • NIMBYism in Dulwich: residents don't want a festival in their park.

    The bizarre stuff:

  • Abramovich is miffed after a 'secret' nightclub being built under Chelsea FC is left flooded.
  • The Express exceeds itself in journalistic twattery in this piece about Kung Fu terrorists targeting Wembley.
  • A waddle too far in Greenwich: a charity is censoring Santa, claiming his portly shape leaves him at risk from diabetes.
  • And the good stuff:

  • A blue plaque for the flat where Lennon and Yoko Ono lived.
  • And 10 out of 10 for Westminster pupils who apparently have the lowest truancy rates in the country.
