So who's surprised? On the bright side, at least it's probably made some Conservative party cronies very rich like all these money-wasting policies.

In light of our security services accessing our webcam images. +Bruce Schneier on why a computer is not the same as a dog (after the Google executive compared its computers reading your emails to a dog seeing you naked).

The Computer Programme (1982). To people like me this was wonderful science fiction come true. That's the BBC micro that Chris Serle is using to access Prestel to buy his ticket to Paris. That was my first computer and I so remember typing in those computer programs line by line from the magazines.

Tony Benn is dead. They don't make politicians like him any more. Mores the shame.

+BBC Radio 4  The Life Scientific, Sue Black - a superb interview by Jim Al Khalili. Very moving in parts as she describes some of her experiences, particularly in Kosovo. It had me in tears. BTW I recommend subscribing to this excellent podcast.

One of my favourite pubs in Liverpool. It's cosy and friendly but does get very crowded sometimes. Generally has an excellent range of cask ales.

Great pub with a good range of well kept cask ales. I understand there is music here some nights though I haven't experienced that. The real highlight for me was the excellent food for only £5. I enjoyed a delicious chilli and the meat balls looked good as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour by a very knowledgeable and convivial student. My only gripe was that we weren't allowed to see the actual studios with their huge north facing windows which was a shame as I suspect this is one of the best features of the building. I guess you can't have tourists disturbing the students but still. Otherwise this is an impressive and unusual building.

A great new pub. A really friendly place that serves top class real ale in oversized glasses. What more could you ask for?

I've been taking my car to Dave for years and he is by far the best car mechanic I've every used. The best thing about him is that I absolutely trust him to always give the best advice and he's very good value for money.

My favourite pub in Liverpool. Great location next to the Albert Dock. Always serving an excellent selection of real ales including several brewed on the premises.
