An early bid has been made for some sort of honour from the Coalition Government. Charlie Mullins, the chap behind Pimlico Plumbers, the posh tradesmen, has this to say about the efforts so far of Messrs Cameron and Osborne: "After years of rescuing botched jobs by cowboy plumbers, I've got a rough idea how the Coalition must feel after 100 days in power, trying to turn around Labour's disastrous mismanagement of the country. I may be dealing in millions rather than billions but the frustrations are the same." What a brown-noser.

How comforting to discover that in this sophisticated age of iPads, eBay and Twitter there are still people out there who are happy to rummage through the unwanted contents of someone else's wardrobe. Two enterprising women, Alice Watson and Rachel Bevis, have been organising jumble sales around London. And demand for stalls is so high that they've had to introduce a rotation system. "Hipster jumble sales" are apparently the latest trend. And just like in the old days, they've become part of a fun day out. The difference is that today's jumble sales, rather than being accompanied by morris dancing and stalls selling jam tarts, include massage booths and DJs. Traditional values in a modern setting, one might say.
