They must have been tempted to call it Rowlocks of Fire surely? True, Bert and Dickie has an alluringly salacious note to it – as if it might be rhyming slang for a rushed act of sexual congress – but it was clear from the very beginning that the inspiration for William Ivory's Olympic drama lay in Hugh Hudson's 1981 film about the runners Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams. Like Chariots of Fire, it had English class snobbery, the notional charms of British amateurism and a rousing moment of patriotic triumph to finish with. Unlike Chariots of Fire, there was no God and the field of battle was a stretch of the Thames near Henley.

"Never trust a man who wears a pinkie ring," my best friend's mum used to tell us when we were at school. We didn't know many men who wore pinkie rings at our bog-standard comprehensive, but later, at Cambridge University, I got her gist: most often they seem to be worn by toffs to show that they come from a long line of toffs, and as such come across as rather arrogant. I don't believe, therefore, that David Cameron's refusal to wear a wedding ring, watch or any other sort of jewellery is a symbol of his poshness, as some people have been saying. But I don't appreciate a married man who refuses to wear a wedding ring any more than one with a giant gold signet ring on his little finger.

There was a stick on moustache stuck to my handbag, and I had spent all night avoiding penalties and red cards. I had been speed dating.

Senior British politicians tell David Cameron: When dead children are being washed up on beaches – it's time to act
