Run over by A Go kart

Looks innocent that car to the right there doesn't it? Don't beleive it! My youngest is currently laid up with a suspected fracture in her foot after being run over by one of these things. I do not recommend going to the nearest hospital to Wembley when england are playing at home with a child with a "minor" injury. We were there nearly six hours and that's not counting the half hour wait for an ambulance.

By the way these are not my kids this image was taken directly from their website

If you are anywhere near Wembley Don't go to Fantasy Island Play Area it's dangerous. At my daughter's recent birthday party one of the guests split is head open on an unprotected steel bar

From today's Financial Times

TONY MCNULTY - London minister
Seen as an articulate bruiser, Mr McNulty will be expected to act as a foil to Boris Johnson, the popular Tory mayor for London. MP for Harrow East since 1997, the former lecturer worked as a whip from 1999 to 2002 and moved on to be immigration minister in 2005 and police minister from Mary 2006

Mc Nulty was a prefect at my secondary school (High school) when I arrived fresh faced at 11. I remember him as an inarticulate bully who once sent me off to "write an essay on the inside of a table tennis ball" because I had dared to speak in the dinner queue. Now I leave it up to you to decide whether I had to someone inscribe the inside of a plastic sphere or to write many words of existensialism on what might be inside a plastic sphere

pay restraint?

From the letters page of today's Independent newspaper

Now that banks are being taken over by the Government, can we expect banking executives to be subject to public-sector pay restraint?

It would be nice to see how bankers manage on a 2% increase to my salary that I'll be getting this year. Certainly no £1M bonuses in the Civil Service!
