It gives me no pleasure to admit that Labour frontbencher Caroline Flint rather burned bridges when she made a point of not thanking me for highlighting the news she was among the leading contenders for 2011's Rear of the Year award. For those of you who don't keep up with current affairs in the way you should, I reported back in January that Caroline was among the early frontrunners for this year's "prestigious" gong, due to be handed out to the lucky winner at The Dorchester hotel this June. Supporters who had helpfully nominated the Shadow Communities Secretary pointed out at the time that Ms Flint would join an esteemed list including Babs Windsor and Graham Norton, should she emerge victorious. Alas, awards organiser Tony Edwards now informs me: "The nominations for Caroline seemed to peak quite quickly, confirming my suspicion they originated from Commons-based computers. Much the same happened last year with Harriet Harman – basically a flurry of voting activity, then nothing." Fickle, fickle world.

On Friday, he’s coming to London for his first major UK exhibition, with 38 works, half of which have never been seen before. Twice featured on the cover of Life, he is most famous for his Shadowman series and his “crime scenes” of the 1980s, when he painted “chalk” outlines around volunteer victims, then splashed red paint on the outline. His recent exhibit in Moscow drew the city’s biggest ever art crowd – so expect a packed gallery. To 3 December, The Dairy, 7 Wakefield Street, London WC1
