Any initial doubts I had that David Aaronovitch could live up to his weighty subtitle – "How conspiracy theory has shaped modern history" – were dispelled pretty early on in this exhaustive but fascinating account of the major conspiracy theories of the past 100 years. He includes the ones that we might expect – from Oliver Stone's rubbishing of the Warren Commission's report on the assassination of JFK, to Mohammed al-Fayed's theory that MI5 and Prince Philip played a part in the car crash that killed his son and Princess Diana. But Aaronovitch also takes on those other inflammatory theories that have shaped society's attitudes towards certain groups and which, he argues, have caused them great harm.

While we don't expect Britain to top the medal table at the Olympic Games, winter or summer, you'd have thought we'd have a good chance at the Couch Potato Olympics, a contest devised by thedailybeast.com to find the slobbiest nations around. They evaluated 24 countries using four criteria – calorie intake per day; television viewing; aversion to playing sports; and internet usage – but Britain only managed fifth overall, though we did pick up silver in the sports aversion category. Winners by a street were North America, with the US first (two golds, two bronzes) and Canada second (one gold). Plucky little Belgium, buoyed by their diet of mussels and mayo-slathered chips, pipped Turkey for third. Beers all round; Belgian, of course.
