No surprise that Creagh has backed the - heavily unionised - taxi drivers who loath the app. Creagh's argument is that apps like Uber must fit into the UK's regulatory framework. It's the left's favourite theme when it comes to the sharing economy: regulation first, reality last...

London is a magnificent city - few places can boast the same cultural and social variety that is on offer in our capital.

I've driven bits of Route 66, gone walking in Memphis, been 90 miles out of Atlanta by sundown and seen the cathedral mountains of Colorado. Of my top ten songs for inspiring travel in the USA, I've experienced nine of them personally. But, so far at least, I've only been to Carolina in my mind.

Fundamentally, the idea with Vayable's pop-up HQ is not merely to sell the platform but to demonstrate something physical about company values. Companies that build products wrapped around activities afford themselves the privilege to organise events that are very relevant to their target market's interests.

A musical biopic of Carole King might not seem the most likely of shows to secure production from the Broadway bigwigs but nevertheless we have an initial premiere at the Curran theatre in San Francisco, before the New York reviews in November. And it could be that those who signed this one off might be looking at a success.

Maybe Glenn Greenwald can stop blaming gay people for the merchandising of America's Left, and find his own progressives who don't mind being ostracized or murdered. Short of that, a radical makeover of SF Gay Pride is necessary, if only so Glenn has something to strum about when he's musing on his acoustic Gibson after one too many Starbucks cappuccinos from his Notting Hill local.

Even on a cold, wet and horrible day, the views were spectacular but the bridge isn't one for the faint hearted. The sea below is a long way down and even an adrenaline junkie like me got a few shivers.
