Donald Macintyre's Sketch: MPs fail to land punches in trial of Hacked Off

If Monday’s Commons debate was post-Leveson showdown lite, today’s Culture, Media and Sport Committee hearing was the real thing. We had Max Mosley, who famously won a 2008 court action against the (late) News of the World after it turned over his private life. And we had at least three Tory MPs who could barely contain their fury at Hacked Off’s starring role in the Ed Miliband-hosted talks which secured the cross-party regulation deal with David Cameron.

Adam Ant Is the BlueBlack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner's Daughter

Album review: Adam Ant, Adam Ant Is the BlueBlack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner's Daughter (BlueBlack Hussar)

It's appropriate that Adam Ant should feature his name in the title of this sprawling comeback album, as many of its 16 songs are plainly autobiographical, from the affectionate paeans to Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood, to the digs at psychiatry in “Shrink”.

The X Factor Live on ITV1

Ten songs X Factor would never have the balls for

X Factor's done power ballads - boy, have they done power ballads - they've done country, they've even gone a bit "urban" (we blame Tulisa for that one), but as Popbitch has correctly identified, there are some songs that even a man as evidently, um, self-confident, as Simon Cowell, would never have the hubris to attempt.

Superman Is an Arab, By Joumana Haddad. Westbourne Press, £8.99

Joumana Haddad, a Lebanese poet and journalist, has written a bold and often very funny polemic on patriarchy in the Arab world. The macho species, Haddad argues, see themselves as "Supermen", and Arab men, in particular, find it hard to reveal their vulnerabilities or share their anxieties with women. Like Superman, they have "the same split personality: the same macho manners; the same 'I'm Good and the rest are Evil' stance; the same 'I am indestructible' delusion".
