Saint Bob's latest rant creates a storm in 'ugly' town of Margate

Bob Geldof has vented his anger at politicians and lamented the West's policies towards Africa. But the latest target for the outspoken anti-poverty campaigner is not a national leader or a failed state. It's much closer to home than that. He thinks Margate is ugly.

Chas & Dave, Amersham Arms, London

You need to peer closely to spot how these purveyors of cockney novelty have aged. They look much as they did on Top of the Pops in 1986, when they last had a hit. Of course, even then they were session veterans who looked grizzled compared to the show's other guests, something exacerbated by their boots-and-braces outfits. Tonight, their beards and tinted specs give them a uniform look.

'Strong UK growth' is raising tax revenues

PsychoGeography #71: Strange weeds and flying Dutchmen

I ONCE visited the Netherlands three times in one year, which frankly is pushing it. The third time I went I was met by a Dutchman at the airport. We were queuing to get a car-park ticket when I dropped the English Sunday newspaper I'd been reading and its 37 property sections flooded across the floor. One of a pair of burly fellows who were behind us in the queue muttered to his companion "zwaar", and they both dissolved into low church giggles. As I picked up the newsprint I asked my Dutchman, "What does that mean?" And he replied, "Heavy". That to me encapsulates the Dutch sense of humour: the pratfall is conceived of as ironic. It's a form of Little Country Blues that's oddly endearing.

TELEVISION: Less a twist than a sharp yank

Top-notch drama serials are like London buses, not in the sense that you always wind up sitting next to someone with 15 shopping bags, mild BO and a tendency to hum songs from musicals, but in the other sense, that you wait for ages and then several come along at once. And not only have Wives and Daughters (BBC1) and Oliver Twist (ITV) come along at once, they are being shown simultaneously, with recriminations flying in both directions, as ITV accuses the BBC of sharp scheduling practice and vice versa. Perhaps there is a case for Donal MacIntyre, the breathing woman's Roger Cook, to turn his secret camera on the television industry itself. Who are these repugnant schedulers and where do they live?
