NEW! Ice Skating

Ice Skating in London. Photo Credit: tompagenet. C.C.LicenseThe summer music festivals are still fresh in our minds, but London soon will get a chilly dose of entertainment, ice-rink style. Lace up your pair of skates - or rent one, if it's been awhile - and head for an evening of figure eights in Canary Wharf, Kew Gardens, Hampton Court or the Tower of London...

Coke City Slump

One of the crazy things about this financial disaster is that apparently no bank knows how deep in the debt-doodoo other banks are, so they are scared to lend to each other and therefore to the rest off us.

Does anyone really believe that? Someone must know. For starters, there is that squad of experts, fully independent of the money markets, who can tell exactly what's what. Known as Cocaine Suppliers, these sharp-minded individuals are in regular phone contact with the City players.

If they get a late-night call from the office of a weeping investment banker, they can deduce it's full-on sub-prime hell; if asked to supply a balloons and streamers party at the local Hedge Fund shop, it's obvious billions of pounds in dodgy-debt has just been passed on to some other sucker, probably the tax-payer; and if they hear a quiet Scottish voice muttering away, they'll know Chancellor Alistair Darling has lost the plot and the whole thing is going down.
