As a nation we pride ourselves on our individuality – so why do we bully anyone who dares to be different? Tom Daley is a young hero – at 14, the youngest person representing his country during the Beijing Olympics last year. Competing against divers twice his age, the bubbly, enthusiastic young man came a creditable seventh, returning home to a rapturous reception. All Tom had to do (you might think) is be disciplined enough to maintain a rigorous training regime and he's more or less a shoo-in for a medal in the 2012 Olympics. Oh, if only life in modern Britain was that simple – not that getting up before dawn and spending 30 hours a week, on top of schoolwork, diving into a pool is a piece of cake. It's a tough choice for a teenager with plenty of other, more fun ways of spending his time.

Britain's economy is shrinking at its fastest rate for 30 years. There is no alternative but to embark on state spending cuts on a scale unseen since the 1970s. The grim condition of the public finances marks Britain out as one of Europe's "sick men". Blimey. It's almost exactly three decades since Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister, and yet it feels like none of it ever happened.
