Theresa May’s extremism: An illiberal and unnecessary plan from the Home Secretary

It is, at least, a clear strategy. Theresa May today laid out how a Conservative government would confront extremism if the party wins election in 2015. On the issue of who should assume responsibility for the task, the Home Secretary reasserted sensible and on-going plans for her department to take full control, and so put an end to the muddle that has beset Whitehall in recent years. On the question of how extremism is to be fought Mrs May was equally forthright – but her proposals invite far less approval.

A real belter: Ian Hart in 'The Driver'

The Driver, BBC1 - TV review: I don't know where this journey's going to end, but I fear the worst

When cabbie Vince McKee (David Morrissey) accepted a job driving for local "businessman" the Horse (Colm Meaney), he hoped to relieve the boredom of the daily grind. Well, he's certainly done that. As this week's episode opened, Vince had been lured away from his anniversary dinner by old convict pal Col (Ian Hart) and embroiled in a kidnap and murder attempt. "Just so you know," said Col to a traumatised Vince as they drove away from the crime scene, "The Horse didn't ask for you. I just wanted company." Viewers who stuck with BBC1 series The Driver, after last week's muted opener have been rewarded; this series keeps getting better (read: ever more tense).
