Down the Tube(s)

My review of the movie Creep appears here. Its London transport-related theme is probably unhelpful to those backing the bid to bring the 2012 Olympics to London, who have conceded defeat, according to the Observer. Not sure what effect this will have on my colleagues and students who have just put together the Olympic issue of Rising East. Maybe it's all a conspiracy.

(OK, so you have to register to access the final link in the posting above - maybe that's a conspiracy too.)

Some things are more cock-up than conspiracy: if Leicester City, who ill health yesterday prevented me from seeing play, suffer a dip in form at the end of the season, Keith Gillespie has an explanation. "The Play-Offs remain the aim and we will keep plugging away until it's mathematically impossible to make it into the top six," he says. At which point they will presumably stop plugging away and get humiliated every weekend, following the logic of Keith's argument. Still, I won't begrudge them the current 'cup run' following the 2-1 victory over Reading I missed.
