A student journalism class puts together a newspaper using manual typewriters, scalpels, glue, analogue photography, etc. Sounds like a good exercise and not just because I’m old(ish). (via Waxy)
@gwire Clegg was on holiday too - he just came back yesterday or today.
@pixellent Ssshh, we were just about to put twitter down and go to bed. Sleep well.
@BoysDad I wish there was nothing to point out...
@lucysherriff Yeah, although I'd have thought anyone likely to join in is going to understand where "Croydon", "Mare St" etc are already.

David "I'll be right behind you" Cameron.

@Pupsor I did it using HTML. Really, nothing more clever than hand-coding it.
Turkish and Asian groups have stood up to & chased off rioters. Bloody immigrants. Coming over here, defending our boroughs & communities.
#londonriots Well, I'd say it's a cautious thumbs up for the Big Society.
