Heather Mills insisted today she treated her former nanny "like a daughter".

Heather Mills 'took advantage of ex-nanny'

Heather Mills's former nanny told an employment tribunal today that she forced her staff to say positive things about her to a film crew, made her work long hours without any extra pay, and caused her to feel uncomfortable by moaning to her about ex-husband Sir Paul McCartney.

Tory MP Liam Fox's expenses appeal rejected

A former High Court judge today dismissed an appeal by shadow defence secretary Liam Fox against a finding that he was overpaid more than £22,000 in parliamentary expenses for mortgage interest on his second home.

James McCartney, Hoxton Bar and Grill, London

In profile, he has his dad's pursed mouth and nose. Full on, the face becomes more eerily identical the more you stare at it. No DNA tests would ever be needed to confirm that this is indeed Paul McCartney's only son, playing his first official London gig at the age of 32. Start listening as well, though, and the fantasies that intrude aren't of the Beatles' Shea Stadium triumph, or Abbey Road genius. I start to imagine Paul McCartney's Liverpool suburban upbringing shifted in time to the early 1990s, with him now listening to Nirvana and the Cure, not Elvis Presley, at night, and instead of conquering the world, remaining a talented, almost content weekend rocker, sometimes musing what might have been: McCartney, in other words, if the sparks of genius and luck never struck. That seems James's honourable level.

Bad Vibes: Britpop and My Part in its Downfall, By Luke Haines

Luke Haines was the lead singer of the 1990s band the Auteurs. One might be tempted to call them a Britpop band, but don't do so in Haines' hearing as he loathes and despises Britpop and all the other bands associated with it. But then, he loathes and despises pretty much everything: all bands more successful than his own; anyone who doesn't think his music was better than everyone else's; small people; small dogs; Northerners... Haines' arrogance is breathtaking: he meets Paul McCartney at Abbey Road studios but declines to play him any of his new songs as "they're too good for him".

Auditor under renewed fire over MPs' expenses

The auditor of MPs' expenses came under renewed fire today as it emerged that a number of his demands for repayment had been overturned on appeal.
