In many ways, these are echoes of the widespread trepidation, cynicism and finger-crossing that marked the build-up to the London Olympics. Those fears were unfulfilled on that occasion and the feel-good factor produced for the country that summer was something that will be hard for us all to forget.

Sam Blackledge

The news that Hull is to be the next UK City of Culture brought back all sorts of memories. I spent three years in the East Yorkshire outpost as an undergraduate. At first it seemed so far away from my midlands home, and my main memories of my first term are of everything getting progressively colder and darker...

Godfrey Bloom

The reason Ukip is now polling a consistent average in by-elections since May (23.6%) is admittedly a fascinating phenomenon... Those in the metropolitan élite bubble, who graze on sun-dried tomatoes, pasta and chardonnay are struggling with this. Why won't this beastly party of amateurs go away? It's now beyond a joke... People are turning to Ukip because no one else seems to understand the frustration ordinary working folk are feeling.
