Don't freeze UK out of euro decisions, warns Cameron

David Cameron will warn EU leaders tomorrow that Britain must not be relegated to an EU second division when eurozone countries adopt greater fiscal integration. At the EU summit in Brussels to discuss the eurozone crisis, the Prime Minister will warn that the region's 17 members must not dictate policies for the 10 countries, including Britain, that have not joined the single currency. His intervention reflects growing fears among British ministers that the 10 could be virtually frozen out of decisions that would have a huge impact on their economies – such as the single market, bank regulation and EU directives affecting small and large businesses.

The Week In Radio: Yes, there's something about Mary Whitehouse

I rather liked Mary Whitehouse. She would often ring me up in a previous journalistic incarnation to "draw my attention" to upcoming outrages. And when she did she was always polite, intelligent and firm, like the girls' school teacher she once was. If the tide of filth had already been broadcast, she would read out the profanities, "eight bloodys, two buggers and a Christ", in her special, taking-the-register monotone, which always enlivened a dull day. And while her repressive views on homosexuality and pre-marital sex were deeply unappealing, her biggest impact on broadcasting was not about sex at all. It was establishing the idea that listeners and viewers should have a say in what broadcasters provide.

McDonald's recalls Shrek glasses in cadmium scare

John Forsythe: Actor who played Blake Carrington in 'Dynasty' and the elusive Charlie in 'Charlie's Angels'

It is ironic that an actor who so distinguished himself in films and on Broadway before winning fame as Blake Carrington on television in Dynasty should perhaps still be best remembered for a role in which viewers never even saw him, that of the elusive Charlie in Charlie's Angels, whose disembodied voice on a phone line gave his girl detectives their new assignment each week.
