An hour into the fun, I noticed another mosh pit and spotted little ginger Ed Sheeran in the centre of it, having come straight from his Wembley Stadium show. Next thing, Ed is pulled onstage by Dave, and proceeds to blow the crowds minds by taking us on a 20-minute journey of karaoke, skitting with the live band.
In 1993, when I first came to Britain to study International Relations at the University of Leeds, I did not dream that one day I will be back as Ambassador of my country to the Court of St James's...
We can redefine what it means to be business-friendly - not bowing to the selfish demands of big business, but supporting all Londoners who want to run a socially and environmentally responsible business that will enrich their lives and our city.
Yeah, I was actually really chuffed when I found out Pizza Union had opened a sister site - especially as I'm dashing through King's Cross all the time these days and simply knowing there's another location where I can go to enjoy a kindly priced Pizza Union pie has me feeling thriftier (and hungrier).
Tt is clearly no longer acceptable for a few militant trade union leaders to regularly seek to squeeze yet more money out of the hard-pressed London taxpayer and fare payer. London is a great city but its position as a services capital of the world is fragile and dependant on it remaining a convenient place to do business.
The planned strike on London Underground from late afternoon on Wednesday 8 July will cause big disruption to the people and economy of London. It is also totally unnecessary.
London is a world-class city but too often we don't get the world-class services or the world-class jobs Londoners deserve. My offer to Londoners is this: I will deliver good jobs for young people, affordable homes for every family, opportunities for new Londoners, stronger local economies and a transport network we can all be proud of.
When the bombs happened we realised very quickly, ourselves and other specialist services, that there would be a massive group of people who would be affected as a result of the atrocity. There has been a lot of research looking at other terrorist incidents which suggests around 30-40% of people who are directly exposed to an attack of this nature go on to develop Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or other mental health problems.
So escape London and then come back to appreciate how lucky you are to live in this great city. Escaping London allows you to rebuild your humanity. We get so often stuck up in our own little world, we sometimes forget how lucky we are to be free to do things other people only dream of.
First there were some odd reports of a "power surge"; then came the slow understanding of the scale of events - and the news of the bus that was carrying Miriam. I was editing a magazine not far from Tavistock square, and I cycled out into the streets of Holborn. I remember the blankness on the faces of the crowds, people milling around - not sure whether to stay and work out what was happening, or whether to try to continue to get to work. Today we remember those London commuters, Miriam and rest of the 52 who died.
A decade on from 7/7 its a day that has and is shaping things to come for my generation as we all continue to feel it's consequences - but difficulties often prove to be the most testing of times, pushing you to make choices and the 7th of July 2005 was a difficult day for London.
That evening, as I absorbed the news, I made a vow to travel by tube the next morning, because if I didn't, my thoughts were that I would not step foot on another underground train for fear of what it might bring. I remember my intense apprehension on the Northern Line platform at Waterloo as the tube doors opened to reveal an empty carriage.
Ten years later the memory has warped and weathered, but there are some odd things that stick in my mind. The man who told a woman next to me, as we ambled home in a daze, that she "wouldn't pull" that day because of the mascara running down her face. It was soot, and she'd been crying.
Nothing ever goes to plan. Investors will know that. Be passionate, be knowledgeable, be prepared and you may well just find that business angel...
I'm sat in a coffee shop on Brick Lane, desperately trying, but failing to be productive. It's a Saturday in April, and the bitterly cold air is heavy with the sort of enticing energy that can only be formed when the scent of roasting beans, and the fulfilled promise of free wifi collide...
The Guardian will be deeply embarrassed by the Press Gazette's headline, and the possible bad press that will follow
