We had a great weekend, meeting up with old friends (one of whom was graduating with a degree in maths – congrats again, Bettina!) and celebrating another family birthday, as well as Fathers’ Day (which naturally involved country walks). A very fine recharge for the old batteries – thanks everyone.
The eye was caught, of course, by Gordon Brown’s interview in the Guardian: he could walk away tomorrow and go into teaching, you know. Which is obviously why he’s clinging on to office by his fingernails. To be fair to him, he came across as humane and thoughtful – and did a similar turn in, er, the News of the World. More of this, please.
Meanwhile, less of this, Daily Telegraph: Eurosceptic conspiracy theories from a leading national Sunday? Who would have thought it?
