You can watch that as many times as you like. It's like a symphony, is that.

Check our marvellous competition standard swimming pool and facilities. It's nice having this at the end of the street. You can nearly see Herald House on the 360 degree view. Also houses the Willesden Museum of Comedy known as "the gym". (Ed.)

"Downing Street took some time to marshal its response to the well-kept secret of the Hoon/Hewitt démarche. By mid-afternoon, however, ministers began to issue statements of devotion to the Great Leader. Before long, the list was an impressive one. Ed Balls's support was to be expected. So, for the most part, were Shaun Woodward's, Alan Johnson's and Alastair Darling's – though the latter was not entirely lavish in his praise of the man who tried to sack him last year."
A real report in a real newspaper. Cherish.
