Michael Gove is a no-nonsense sort of chap, unafraid to shake his fist at the Human Rights Act. In 2011, the Education Secretary vowed to crack down on unruly pupils, whatever Europe said about their rights, and last year he led the cabinet's huffing and puffing when it looked as if Abu Qatada couldn't be deported. So how surprising to learn he is the trustee of a charity dedicated to promoting, er, human rights! The Charity Commission lists Gove as one of only two trustees of something called the European Freedom Fund. The other is the neocon writer and activist Douglas Murray. Their objective is "the promotion of respect for human rights as set out in the European Convention of Human Rights and fundamental freedoms adopted by the members of the council of Europe on 4th November 1950 and the convention's five protocols". This could put Gove in a tricky position when the Tories come to replacing the Human Rights Act with a British Bill of Rights. Still, the EFF hasn't been too busy: no money has gone in or out since it was founded in 2007. Molto strano!

Viv Nicholson. You've either no idea who I'm going on about, or no idea why I'm going on about her, especially on the fashion pages. In 1961, Viv won £152,300, 18 shillings, and 8 pence – the equivalent of a cool £3m today – on the football pools. When the press asked Viv what she planned to do with the money, she famously declared "Spend, spend, spend". That epithet became Viv's epitaph: it's also the title of her autobiography, a musical based on said tome, and an EP penned by her brother.
A clump of Mick Jagger’s hair cut before his Rolling Stones days is to be auctioned at Bonhams in London.
Jamie Reynolds has yet to enter a plea to the 17-year-old's murder
“Do you think that it's wrong to be an artist?” Daniel Johnston breaks off tonight’s all-star tribute to his artistry to ask us. It’s a real question that must sometimes torture him, raised as he was by fundamentalist Christians in Texas.
Friends of Georgia Williams are hoping to raise more than £1,000 for a permanent memorial to the 17-year-old.
Her 2010 album of Glass, Tavener and Nyman pieces was a more effective showcase for Amy Dickson's soprano sax than this collection of popular classics and classic pop. Fauré's “Pavane” works fine – her sleek , pure timbre, closer to clarinet or even oboe at times, floats weight-lessly over the gentle pizzicato and swish of strings; but the sax lacks the emotional flexibility of the human voice when taking the vocal line to “Casta Diva”, from Bellini's Norma.
