Peter Wiles talks a good game. When explaining why Britain needs a mega-dairy with a herd 30 times larger than average, he says traditional dairy farmers are going out of business and imports rising; British milk is under threat.

"In part, these recordings are a return to the frosty ambient surface noise that has periodically enthralled Eno since his 1973 collaboration with Robert Fripp on ('No Pussyfooting'). But there's a broader range of material here, with the album turning from the great plumes of irascible noise... to the dewy plinks of piano." drownedinsound.com

Thank you, Janet Street-Porter, for sticking the knife into Naomi Campbell over her disgusting and disrespectful behaviour in court the other day (Editor-at-Large, 8 August). Had any normal person behaved in such a manner they would probably have been held in contempt. I'm sure all those in Africa who have had their limbs hacked off found it rather "inconvenient" as well. May I suggest that she takes some of her vast fortune and buys some lessons in basic manners, which she seems to be devoid of. I hope other people put the boot in as well, so that she might feel some shame in her actions. No doubt she will hide behind her legal team and will carry on with "her life" unconcerned.

Cameron the milk kleptomaniac, Dave the dairy cutter? Journalists would have struggled to devise a sobriquet as damaging as Thatcher the milk snatcher for the current Conservative leader, but David Cameron was taking no chances on acquiring a nickname yesterday when he strangled a plan by one of his ministers to abolish free milk for nursery children.

It might be called the curious incident of the milk in the summertime. A Scottish newspaper, the Glasgow Sunday Herald, revealed – on the basis of a leaked letter from the Health minister – that the Government was planning to end free milk for children in nurseries, the argument being that in these straitened times the provision was poor value for money and outdated. But no sooner had David Willetts, the Universities Minister, justified keeping all options open, than officials in Downing Street denied it. The Prime Minister, they made known, did not like the idea of five-year-olds having their free milk scrapped.
