Nice to hear from John – sorry, Lord – Prescott again, even if it is with a disappointing denial that he had anything to do with a rather expensive contract for his former department, stipulating "indoor plant landscaping", "silver service" and the maintenance of "healthy and vigorous plants with a weed-free appearance". We are happy to accept his insistence that he had better things to do than oversee his indoor landscaping, preferring to leave it to his civil servants. But there's nothing at all to be ashamed of. Such standards are surely no more than we all aspire to, even if we lack the means to attain them. Should not "weed-free" be a statutory national requirement, anywhere and everywhere?

On that sad day when circumstances compelled Radio 2 to replace Jonathan Ross on Saturday mornings, it looked around and its gaze quite naturally fell on Graham Norton. He was, in many ways, the obvious choice. Norton is a proven talent as well as a warm, genuinely likeable personality. Of all Radio 2's DJs, he's the one I'd most want to get trapped in a lift with. But given the brilliant, inventive extemporising with which Jonathan Ross used to kick off the weekend, Norton's new show, which started this week, felt totally... safe.
