Just when you thought it was all over, the newsstands are heaving with souvenir editions of our beloved Olympics and I can feel the love again.

Spontaneity - A Cautionary Tale

This is a long story, but needs telling for personal therapeutic reasons and, I believe, altruistic ones. There are others that may learn from my mistakes.

Philip Gould - a Little Person's Eulogy

Here was this man, shambolic, frenetic, accessible and devoid of the loftiness that often pervaded senior editorial teams (even at the <em>Express</em>) and senior management, who was more influential than any of them - he really did have the ear of the prime minister.

James Corden - Comedy Guvnor

James Corden is comedy gold dust. Watching him I was reminded of the greats - chaplin, cooper, laurel, hardy, even the boundless physicality of lee evans came to mind. Corden does farce as good as it gets.

Boris Johnson - Don't Underestimate the Power of Funny

The Mayoralty is up for re-election next year and there's a chance that Boris may not get to open his beloved Olympics, instead forced to hand ye flamin' torch over to arch rival Ken. I have a feeling it won't happen, that he'll stay in. Because there's a little bit about his innate comedy that infects, and that's what people want more of right now, amidst all the gloom.
