Yesterday's revelations about the alleged willingness of some Labour peers to take cash in return for seeking amendments to the law will be a nail in the coffin of Gordon Brown's government. Notwithstanding the protestations that none of those involved are ministers, the public will nevertheless see little difference between this and the cash-for-questions scandals of the mid-1990s involving John Major's government.

As a member of one of the farming families who owned Zermatt in the pre-tourist era, architect-designer Heinz Julen had all the right connections to make an impact on his ultra-conservative home town. The Matterhorn Focus is the latest showcase for his cutting-edge vision. The hotel, which opened last summer, stands just above the Matterhorn Express gondola, the centre of the Zermatt lift system.

I've had a loathing of ties all my life and I'm pretty sure that this trait is genetic as my son is definitely heading that way.
