It's the done thing

Blog watchers will be aware of the recent competition between bits of the commentariat to spot obscure figures from public life. It's like a neo-con version of Heat magazine.

By coincidence, this long weekend I managed sightings of Bob Crow near Farringdon tube, Iain Duncan Smith and Guardian feature writer Laura Barton. When do I get sent my membership card and decoder ring?

The truly observant will have noticed that the real money is in property (e.g. see Jeremy Warner, "Gherkin sold. London's commercial property market is booming, and with good reason", Independent, 6 February 2007, p.37) and not in trainspotting.
