The Evening Standard's news editor, Hugh Dougherty, is reportedly moving on to pastures new, but nobody was quite sure where he was destined. He is, indeed, moving upstairs, I can reveal, to the Daily Mail (as has been mooted but not confirmed), but his title and exact position on the desk is still to be arranged. Having joined the Standard seven and a half years ago as a news reporter, and working as news editor since October 2006 – getting up at 4.00am every day – the Mail should be a doddle.

There was a clash of London subcultures as Old Street scenesters relocated to South Kensington for the launch of the Soul i-D exhibition last week. Christie's Auction House is a far cry from the grungey youth culture that Terry Jones' magazine tends to nurture, but it provided a well-lit (and well-to-do) backdrop for the launch of the street-style bible's latest expo, which includes visuals from Alexander McQueen and Terry Richardson.

It's well known that a shrine to Jean Charles de Menezes has been maintained outside Stockwell Tube station, since shortly after he was killed. I use the station a lot, and the makeshift nature of the memorial is a constant – and important – reminder of the failure of the Metropolitan Police to take responsibility for what happened on 22 July 2005. An official plaque marking the place where the one victim of the 21 July attacks lost his life would be decent and dignified. But that would signify collective sorrow at a terrible mistake, and the latter is what the force refuses to admit.

If ever proof were needed that we love to hate our icons it comes in the form of the suggestion that Kate Winslet's fan base might be alienated by the fact that she is photographed, nearly naked and, more importantly, ultra-slender on the front cover of this month's 'Vanity Fair'. The star's image has not been "air-brushed" her people claim (true, obviously – it's all done digitally these days) although a certain amount of "colour correction" may have been involved.

Does it matter if columnists make incorrect predictions? Most people would probably say it does. I wonder. Two of my favourite columnists in the whole world are Anatole Kaletsky and William Rees-Mogg, both of which gentlemen I happen to know slightly. I devour their pieces in The Times. I am the Oxford representative of the Lord Rees-Mogg fan club, and would be honoured to undertake the same role for Mr Kaletsky should a vacancy ever arise.

In order for any kind of civic virtue to be taken seriously in 2008, some kind of award must be created for it – a prize to remind us all that, in spite of all the terrible things that are going on, some good still exists in the world. There is the Pride of Britain Awards for our teachers, social workers and have-a-go heroes. Winner of Rural Hero of the Year is shortly to be announced.
