Re Paper Monitor's discovery of a Times' TV listing from 1980 of a show featuring a character called Tony Blair. On closer examination, the parallels with our soon-to-be ex-leader appear even spookier. The 1980 listing says that "Meanwhile Monica is finding out some strange things about Burton". Who should introduce Mr Blair at his resignation speech today? His long-standing constituency agent John Burton.

Nothing in Paper Monitor on the Grauniad's revamp of their online site?

The Guardian design philosophy values function first and aesthetics second..." and so on.
Re: Warning as tick diseases on rise. The article says that "travellers and holidaymakers visiting rural areas are at risk from tick bites". What about people living in rural areas? I take it we're safe?
I suspect that most of the entries in this week's caption competition will be in the "too rude to publish" category.

MM note: Nicely done, sir. But it came via the letters form. Consider yourself barred.
