The Big Bash has been a smash hit. If the plethora of staff and officials from the England and Wales Cricket Board who have been in and out of Australia at various times during the past three months have learned nothing from it, they have been wasting their time.

Man settles beside a river, that source of life, commerce. He creates built structures, for shelter, and then, as they grow and cluster about him, for slightly different reasons: pomp, power, prestige. London was and is such a place. Here we see her in the near present, in all her messy, creeping sprawl, smudgy, looming, enormous, mighty. Majestic even. This city is everything that man, cumulatively, has wanted her to be. Here is both all her vital and upward-thrusting nowness, together with all the untidy remnants of everything that she once was or has laid claim to be. A mighty, awe-inspiringly ramshackle palimpsest then.

Questions of cash: Securing a £100 refund on a replacement handbag was like going round and round the Mulberry bush
Saturday 24 November 2012
Q. My husband bought a bag for me on 5 January for my birthday from the Mulberry store in St Christopher's Place, London. It was not a sale item. At my request, he exchanged it on 20 January for a different colour. The replacement bag was £100 cheaper. The store told him he could not have a refund and instead issued a credit note. However, the store's website shows that its policy is that items returned in perfect condition within 28 days with proof of purchase will be refunded. I have tried repeatedly but unsuccessfully to contact Mulberry to resolve this. The transaction was some time ago but I only recently found out that the store did not provide a refund. FW, by email.
