  • "My feeling was that the confinement period was far too long. At one point I jettisoned all semblance of journalistic detachment and briefly joined the chanting for release. Like other perfectly peaceable people there, I got pretty pissed off. The angry, meanwhile, got angrier and for a while, from about 6.00, I was seriously worried that things might become very ugly indeed." Can't say I blame him. To cheer yourself up from that gloom, there's also a surreal video conversation between Dave and a tea cup holding protester, surrounded by riot police, talking about tea and kettles.

  • Conclusive proof that you can find anything on the internet, here's a history of the 346 bus route, on which I was a regular user as a kid and a teenager. It took me to Hyde or Ashton for shopping, and to Ashton so I could get to school. And during university, it occasionally took me direct to see Catherine as her parents also lived on the route. And apparently it used to be a tram route. So there you go.
