NotesNews: Fifty year anniversary of the shooting of American President John F Kennedy.

News: "By Tuesday, even Nick Clegg had caught up with Tory HQ's Labour-baiting script and was abusing Unite's Len McCluskey. But who needs a respectable trade union apparatchik when they can have the Co-op's Crystal Methodist banker, Paul Flowers, to wrap round Ed Miliband's neck? At the start of PMQs, it took no longer than David Cameron needed to eulogise another soldier killed in Afghanistan before the barrage began. Backbencher Steve Brine obligingly deplored the "nightmare" whereby such a dozy cleric had ever become chairman of a bank. Could the PM investigate? Clearly young Brine has been asleep since 2008's bank crash, which revealed that assorted Moonies, Tory card sharps and Doctor Who fans had chaired much bigger banks where they failed to spot risks that cost taxpayers billions. Cameron obviously overlooked it, too. Crocodile tears cascaded down those rosy cheeks. He promised an inquiry and appealed to anyone who knew the Rev's little weaknesses - I mean you, Edward Miliband - to tell the authorities. The jaw-dropping hypocrisy was magnificent, and Tory MPs loved it. Never mind that the coalition encouraged Co-op bankers to expand while regulators slept, perhaps on the same sofa as Dave and Steve Brine. Were there not photos proving that the cokehead cleric and rent boy fiddler gave Labour money the Co-op couldn't afford? That he met Miliband at parties (though not - you can't have everything - with rent boys)? ... " Michael White, The Guardian
