At 8.30am on 13 July, the colliery bands of Durham began their march towards the city's market place. The miners' banners went with them, signposts to the past, a visible display of pride in the region's history. From there followed a slow march towards the County Hotel on Old Elvet. The bands played, the march went on to the racecourse, and the banners were strapped to the surrounding fences.

Douglas Falconer was a patents judge in the Chancery Division of the High Court from 1981 to 1989. He was always courteous – every trial before him was conducted in an atmosphere of calm, every argument scrupulously noted, every fact mastered. At the end there was a meticulously reasoned judgment and a just result. His judgments were sometimes long delayed, but once they were delivered, it was clear that all the facts had been completely covered and carefully considered.

As the one who first noticed David Cameron's bald spot, I feel proprietorial about it. Kevin Maguire noticed it yesterday from the gallery and was trying to appropriate it for the Daily Mirror. No! It's mine! I discovered it a year ago, planted a flag in it, claimed it for The Independent. It's an expanding dominion, I might say. It's getting bigger. Soon we'll be able to plant it with tobacco and transport convicts to it. But you can see how the First World War started.
