* Relations between the Danish police and climate protesters at Copenhagen have remained cordial, but things threatened to boil over at 3am yesterday when 100 officers raided a house being used by the campaign group Climate Justice Action, on Ragnhild Street in the north of the city. Apparently the police thought they were about to uncover a cache of dangerous weapons. Instead, a spokesman admitted later, they discovered "58 fluorescent tubes containing a mixture of paint and oil, closed in both ends with candle wax, 193 riot shields, nine metal cages measuring 4mx2m..." The drowsy campaigners said they also nabbed a power drill, an angle grinder, some wooden props and bicycle tools. Would love to know what they were planning.

My friend went recently, and when she suggested that the results weren’t exactly Holbeinesque, the ‘artiste’ responsible replied sullenly that “the camera never lies”. Then there’s the average makeover studio, where subjects submit to transvestite make-up and a tight perm before being photographed sitting backwards on a chair.
