Munching down fish and chips while enjoying a pint of Broadside is a must-do when visiting Southwold. Even if your face is more battered by the wind than your cod is by the fryer; and even if you're soggier from the rain than your chips are from the vinegar. In fact it all tends to add to the whole experience.

Alex Salmond Thinks a Second Scottish Referendum Is Inevitable and It May Happen Sooner Than People Think - Here's How

Just 10 months after Scotland voted to preserve the union, Salmond's view is that another vote is "inevitable". Why is this news? After all, the constitutional goal of the SNP is to forge a breakaway Scotland. Plus, Salmond has casually dropped a variation on the "inevitable" line in every interview since the end of last year, stripping the "new" out of "news". Yet his comments were instructive on when another vote could take place.

Will Scobie

As different parts of the country and the economy have grown further apart it becomes easier to bash those you have the least contact with. Familiarity may breed contempt but distance can breed distain... Farage's brand of political nihilism plays on these divisions. The best way of defeating this is of course by standing up to it.

'The Andrew Marr Show' Is Outdated - Here's Eight Ways the BBC Could Reinvent It

Stephen Hull | Posted 18.05.2015 | UK
Stephen Hull

While we will be inspired by what they achieve on the field of play, the NHS should also take inspiration from the process, structures and services that helped get them there... Because while our health service is world class when it comes to saving lives, too often what comes next fails to live up to that standard.
