    Pippa and the Perfect Posterior

    Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

    Pippa Middleton has a book on celebrating out, and we have a bit of fun with it in today’s Post. I have a little sidebar that mainly consists of bum jokes.

    Back in New York

    Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

    In my Sunday column, I explain (only 2 days after the 20th anniversary of the day I moved to New York City) why London is no competition for the title of world’s lead city.

    Athens, Calif.

    Sunday, May 20th, 2012

    How does the Greek crisis differ from what’s going on in California? I suppose California can’t drop out of its currency and devalue. But that kind of makes it worse. More in my Sunday column.
    Not unrelatedly, David Cameron mumbled yesterday (this is an exact quote), “Action needs to be taken, contingency plans need to be [...]

    “George Galloway Is a Muslim”

    Monday, May 14th, 2012

    The New Statesman reports that George Galloway, the MP who recently regained his place in Parliament, secretly converted to Islam. Says Jemima Khan in The New Statesman:

    Hulk Go to Parliament!

    Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

    “They probably thought, “This bloke is going mental.” At that point, I saw red. I thumped them with my fist and my head – not with massive viciousness, just enough to sting them…”
    A few weeks ago a Labour member of parliament got drunk and went a bit amazingly bonkers in a bar (located inside the [...]

    An Even Crueler Attack on Morgan Spurlock

    Friday, April 20th, 2012

    Really, there is no nastier ways to criticise (it’s happening!!! I’ve been in London too long!) the Spurlockiness of Morgan than to actually quote the man. In the Mail on Sunday a couple of weeks ago, he made an effort to sum up British quirks in hilariously new ways. This is what he came up [...]

    Gill on Boris

    Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

    A very funny piece was in the Sunday Times (paywall) this week in which TV critic/restaurant critic AA Gill hit the campaign trail with London’s shambling manboy Tory mayor Boris Johnson — who even in a super-liberal district of the country is amazingly popular. Anyway, Gill does something that’s pretty hard to do–he is [...]

    An NYC-Like Race for Mayor of London

    Thursday, April 12th, 2012

    I have an op-ed in The Post today about the neck-and-neck race for mayor of London, in which an ex-Socialist faces off against an appealingly gruff Tory.

    Peter Hitchens for Parliament

    Sunday, April 8th, 2012

    Conservative Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens, who trashes the Tory Party every week but has also disparaged rival right-wing party UKIP, says he’s willing to run for Parliament this week.
