Talking about "the spiral of speculation" as the Attorney General did when telling the House why he wasn't going to the High Court to apply for a proper inquest... what was that big lug Mike Penning doing there on the front bench? He's some sort of Transport minister – why was he attending a quasi-judicial statement on the death of David Kelly? There was no parliamentary need for him to be present but there he was, in far more elevated company than he's used to. You can call it a coincidence but only if you're credulous enough.

I am haunted by waters", Olivia Laing tells us, as in this book she joins the best nature writers, becoming part of the revival begun by Richard Mabey. With it comes an inclination towards rhetorical ornament that can become self-consciously obtrusive. But not here. Laing is a brilliant wordsmith and this is a beautifully accomplished book. It recounts a walk she made, in the course of one week, tracing the path of the River Ouse in Sussex. The catalyst was a "minor crisis". The loss of job and boyfriend in quick succession proved an immediate stimulus. But this walk also engaged the depths of what she knew, and preparation for it must have begun in childhood.
