Bloody Blair!

A small but angry crowd turned up early on this cold January morning to express their feelings as Tony Blair slunk in through the back door for his appearance at the Chilcot Enquiry.

The soft and rambling questioning saw Blair's initial nervousness turn to confidence as he realised that the whole point of the show was to let this slippery war criminal off the hook.

I'm A Photographer Not A Terrorist

What a splendid day! There were THOUSANDS of us!

And the stroppy security guards just made great pics.

It's been a long campaign, but over the last couple of years we've made real progress. S44 is being reined in and even the cops are beginning to notice that photographers really aren't terrorists.

A totally uplifting day, even if I did get busted by the Vigilance Committee.


And it didn't rain!

Wassailing in Springfield Park, Hackney. A sunny day in mid winter with cakes and much mulled cider.

A pre-Christian traditional ceremony held on the old 12th night of 17 January and stemming from an Anglo-Saxon pagan ritual of visiting your apple trees and leaving them libations of cider and cider soaked toast to encourage their fertility next year.

The trees only got a mug each but we polished off gallons afterwards. Off for a little lie down now.

International No Pants Subway Ride

Well, it's a "No Trousers Tube Journey" here, but it's going off today in New York, Chicago, Washington, Seattle, Stockholm, Barcelona, Mexico City, Buenos Aires and heaven knows where else.

Started in 2002 with 7 people there were more than 3,000 last year in New York alone.
We chose the Piccadilly Line this year for its stylish upholstery and cool decor.
