The irony that Boris played the Hitler card is stomach churning when you consider Adolf would have loved both his blond hair and his extreme right wing politics and he would have hated Jeremy Corbyn.
DJ, producer, radio and TV presenter
If Eddy Temple-Morris were writing this himself, heâd have to say he discovered penicillin, staged the first cross-channel flight and once had a dog called Snoopy - largely because heâd be mixing other peopleâs biogs in with his own.â¨â¨Since launching Xfmâs legendary (and twice Sony Award nominated) dance-rock crossover radio show, The Remix (now the biggest specialist show on the station), nearly ten years ago, Eddyâs become the undisputed champion not just of genre-hopping but of genre-breeding, slipping enough pills into dance musicâs pint until it finds itself curled up in the corner of the room with rockâs dangly bits in its mouth.â¨â¨Itâs why artists from Kasabian to Liam Howlett (The Prodigy) rate his presenting skills, his DJing skills and his-hat-wearing skills above any otherâs. Itâs why his Losers remixes have graced recent b-sides from the likes of The Prodigy, Placebo and Snow Patrol, why âPatrolâs frontman Gary Lightbody calls him âtwisted geniusâ. Itâs why the man behind Manumission rates Eddy as âthe future of Ibizaâ and why heâs Pendulumâs favourite tour DJ.â¨â¨Wherever music makes people feel better, thatâs where youâll find Eddy. Youâll know his voice from the radio (Chris Evans once called him the coolest man working in the medium). Youâll know his immaculately groomed armpits from the clubs, where his The Remix, Remix Allnighter at SEOne and at MATTER clubnights are or were consistently among the best-reviewed parties available to the UK and Ibizaâs hedonists. You might have seen his name on Ibiza Rocks posters the year it started, he was the first host and resident in year 1. You may have seen him play the main rooms at Manumission, or Ministry Of Sound. You may even know his face or voice from MTVâs groundbreaking Up For It Live show, from his stand-in spots filling in for Zane Lowe on MTV2âs Gonzo, and from all manner of shows on ITV, Channel 4 ,Five, or Radio One. Countless artists owe their careers to the fact they were discovered by Eddy, not least 2ManyDJs, Simian Mobile Disco, Kasabian, Justice, Sub Focus, Alex Metric, Pendulum, and Fenech Soler. But none of this is terribly important. The thing you really need to know about Eddy is that his lust for life makes Iggy Pop look like Marvin The Paranoid Android. His eyes shine so bright that moths frequently fly into them on foggy nights. To put it simply, heâs the happiest bugger you could ever hope to meet - not because of his success (and certainly not because of his fame), but simply because, when God was handing out bitchiness and egotism, Elton John was ahead of him in the queue.â¨â¨And then he went back for seconds.â¨â¨Eddy Temple-Morris, then. Heâs gifted. Heâs passionate. Heâs a fucking brilliant DJ. And heâs incredibly proud of that Nobel Peace Prize.
One in ten people in this country has tinnitus. ONE. IN. TEN. I don't have to tell you how serious it is, or how permanent. Do you know how much the government has spent - ever - on tinnitus awareness? Or prevention? Like they do with fireworks? Not a single penny.

This week is Tinnitus Awareness Week 2012 and, as ambassador for the British Tinnitus Association, I am bound to tell you that this year our focus is on GPs... there are GPs out there who really need to raise their games when it comes to this condition.

Now, I'm on record as saying that 'You Only Get What You Give' is an example of pop songwriting perfection, so I had a look. It turned out the Tory party had used the track at their conference, one of that shower of bastards walked on, or off, stage to it.

I don't normally watch <em>X Factor</em>. Like Stephen Fry, I find the emotions it exploits - awkwardness and embarrassment - overrated as entertainment vehicles. But last Saturday night, I was forced to switch on the US version of the show after seeing Steve Jones trending on Twitter.

I have a massive amount of respect for Andy Weatherall, he's one of the special ones, a Remix Hall Of Famer, someone whose hand-print I'd immortalise in bronze on the pavement of Leicester Square if I was in charge.

I used to love Bestival. So much. The first couple of years, before it was expanded, were an utter delight. I had one of my favourite gigs ever, in the Secret Disco, coming on after Sean Rowley's Guilty Pleasures...Quickly, however, the rot set in.
