2. I thought the World Cup would be ghastly, but I hadn't anticipated the French team going on strike or John Terry attempting a coup d'etat against Fabio Capello. Actually, all this is so ghastly it's fascinating- which is more than can be said for anything that's been happening on the pitch. I asked Ruth (who knows about football) why our lot have been playing so badly- and she said it was because they're a bunch of spoiled brats who can't work as a team. I wonder when the penny is finally going to drop with the relentlessly exploited, relentlessly betrayed fans that they're being sold a crock of shit.
3. I see they had a lovely morning for it at Stonehenge. These pictures on the Guardian site are really rather special.
