Westminster Outlook The minds of politicians and business bosses work very differently. MPs are, typically, marvellously impressive at linking very disparate topics with a single thread of argument; directors believe this is disingenuous at best.

The players will be thinking of the glory, but for the men trying to keep Grimsby Town, Kidderminster Harriers and Macclesfield Town afloat, it is the riches on offer in the FA Cup third round that makes it worth diverting the Conference trio’s attention from the quest to regain Football League status.
Wayne Harrison: Liverpool signing whose promising career was thwarted by serious injury at home and on the pitch
Thursday 02 January 2014
Wayne Harrison was not the most fortunate of footballers. Blessed with a sublime talent for sniffing out goal-scoring opportunities and converting them with consummate skill, he became the world's most expensive teenager when Liverpool – then the mightiest club in the land – paid Oldham Athletic £250,000 for his predatory services in the spring of 1985.

For a man who made a speech in 2010 heralding the “new politics”, Nick Clegg is pretty adept at the old kind. He was harried from all sides about an imminent announcement that cabinet ministers will be able to hire 10 taxpayer-funded “personal advisers” in what the Tory Philip Hollobone decried as “a move towards a US West Wing type of Government”.
