The missing headlines:

Eddie Mair | 17:59 UK time, Tuesday, 10 June 2008

Downing Street has condemned plans for a four-day strike by oil tanker drivers that's due to start on Friday. It's urged motorists to refrain from panic-buying petrol and diesel. The action by drivers who deliver fuel for Shell is likely to affect about one in ten filling stations.

Charities have expressed dismay at a rise in the number of children and elderly people who live in poverty.

The Police Federation has lost a legal bid to force the Government to backdate the pay award for officers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

    So these were the headlines at 5.45. You have forgotten these before.

    The poor lad sitting waiting patiently and being ignored by the anchor. Can we have an extra set tomorrow to make up?

    £116 that is the amount spent by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport on promoting St George’s day this year. A similar amount was spent in 2007 when they started flying the flag of St George (is that where all the money went?). Nothing was spent before that.
    It would be interesting to know how much was spent by both central government and the devolved authorities on promoting Saints David’s, Patrick’s and Andrew’s Days. And how much promoting Eid, Diwali, Hannukah, Black history month etc. And of course how much more is planned to be spent on Gordon’s Britishness day?
