Tips and tales from a wise old meat loaf

Cooper Brown: The Brother

Good news – I have been “cleared” of being sexist. Like I give a damn, but it makes my life easier for a while. Turns out that I am deemed to be “humorous” and therefore I can say stuff others can’t. Whatever, if they think I’m attempting to be humorous, all the better. I drove to the country today.

Keys and Gray make radio debut

Andy Gray and Richard Keys made their radio debut today after the Sky Sports sexism row.

Diary: At least Sally mixes well

Sally Bercow is, of course, the wife of Cuban-heeled Speaker of the House, Señor John Bercow. But she is also, these days, a star. So in demand are her talents, in fact, that I'm sadly unable to stump up the necessary funds to republish that saucy shot of her in a bedsheet from last week. (You'll have to make do with the fully clothed version, gents). To deal with her hard-earned celebrity, Mrs Bercow recently engaged the services of a showbiz agency to negotiate on her behalf. The arrestingly named firm, ASM Damage, may have failed to mitigate the fallout from her recent photoshoot, but its website reveals that: "Within the last 10 years ASM Damage has been responsible for breaking... successful urban acts such as So Solid Crew & Oxide & Neutrino, as well as pop acts such as Friday Hill & Blazin' Squad." Thus Mrs Bercow joins the same roster as Dane Bowers, Aggro Santos and Lisa Maffia. An odd fit, certainly, but as her online CV insists, she's "experienced and adept at mixing with people from all walks of life, and types of background".

Cooper Brown: Sexism

I'm under "investigation" for sexism and have had an online fight with Stephen Fry. If whichever bunch of ladyboys decide that I have been sexist then I will be fined and this diary censured. Well bring it on, that's what I say!

Letter from the editor: A print venture making tracks

It’s Disco Dave’s birthday today. You won’t see his name alongside celebrities such as Carol Channing or Johnny Rotten but Dave is nevertheless worthy of mention as an important member of i’s rapidly growing family.

City protest at 'sexist' snub to female executive

Manchester City will make an official complaint to Notts County today after their director of communications, Vicky Kloss, claimed she was manhandled from the players' tunnel by club stewards and told that women were not allowed to be there.

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown: Sexism is wrong. But are we women our own worst enemy?

Male chauvinists carry on because the victims of their contempt let them. Women slink away from confrontations when they need to create a stink

Howard Jacobson: A love-hate affair with the ordinary bloke
