I need to do a piece about Liz Truss / Kwarteng budget – think that I’ll have to keep it simple for them – then I can have some fun ;)

Please feel free to contribute and comment once it’s published.

I have been reliably informed that Russki nicknames are often far longer than their original names which seems a lot weird. Anyway let’s call him Al.

I will be looking at one of the victims of 7/7

Almost as if she was a chosen victim, isn’t it? … a successful human rights lawyer … active in opposition to Blair & Co’s Iraq war
… but how is that possible … if they were attacks by suicide bombers?
