Paxman: Are you tough enough? Milliband: Tough enough? Well David’s not exactly Liam Gallagher is he? Hiding behind his pals in the city, giving them jobs, pulling some strings, is that ‘tough’? And your little jibe there about Vladimir Putin, is that…

Facebook Business Manager is for agencies running multiple accounts and ad campaigns. It's NOT intended for most small business users and may cause frustration rather than help you. If you do use it, and run into difficulties, give us a shout and we'll see if we can help.

Outside The Angel pub in Highgate a blue plaque in honour of Monty Python star Graham Chapman. I was done in London on some voiceover business and running social media and online writing workshops.

Corporate Video For Social Media

Sure, there’s still a place for high end, artistic, beautifully shot corporate video. But there’s a much more urgent need for something shorter, quicker and rougher. Facebook is gunning for YouTube and prioritising video content over everything else.…

Milliband vs Cameron Sky/Channel 4 Q+A

Where Is The Substance

One of my very favourite buildings. MTV/Viacom HQ in Hawley Crescent, Camden. This is it after an extensive refurbishment - I think it looks amazing. It was originally built as the studios of TV-AM (Roland Rat etc) back in the early 80s,  and still has their famous egg cups on the roof round the back. The Open University is just across the road, and Camden Lock right out the back.
