Lying In The Gutters – 26th August 2013

Jennifer Saunders watching the Notting Hill Carnival yesterday. Well, Edina wouldn't be anywhere else would she? Photo by me.

I'm in Brighton for a few days with the family (with some wonderful hotel wi-fi). Apologies if anything is tardier than usual, but I've just been swimming in the English Channel. Anyway, I needed a break from being compared to a car thief by a senior Marvel Comics executive.

But that's the week ahead, what have you been reading the past week? Well, there was one story…
