While the onset of recession has driven prices down on the high street over the past few months, there’s been no such savings to be had for regular train-travellers. Prices on some networks rose by as much as 7 per cent at the start of January – almost eight times greater than the current rate of inflation.

If you enjoyed the recent Independent promotion of booklets on the "Great Poets", you should continue to keep at the cutting edge of poetry by subscribing to Agenda magazine. In her introduction to the new issue, editor Patricia McCarthy endorses the two kinds of art that WH Auden defined: "escape art", and "parable art" which "shall teach man to unlearn hatred and learn love". "Lauds" is another very shapely issue. Its engagement with celebrated poets is set by the sepia photographs from a private collection on the covers, confirming that Agenda always manages an original approach to even the most studied poetries.

Princess Anne was not quite in her infamous "Naff 'orf" mode when she chided the media at the annual general meeting of the British Olympic Association, over which she presides, but she made sure we got the message. "Please get your facts right," she said icily. The BOA have had a rather bad press of late and HRH is not alone in coming out fighting. Colin Moynihan, who threw a mean punch as an amateur bantamweight boxer, is now very much "hands on", adopting a far more aggressive role as chairman after the organisation's recent gaffes by overturning the proposed "gagging" clause in athletes' contracts and throwing out any idea of them using smog masks in Beijing. Moreover, he warns Dwain Chambers that if the sprinter contests his life Olympic ban in court, it will be a fight to the finish "whatever the cost". That, of course could be considerable – for both parties – but Moynihan, well connected in top legal circles, says he will hire the best possible lawyers. "I've been in sport 28 years and I am determined there will be no room for cheats in our teams for Beijing or London."
