    I don't know, do many people believe in colonising the third world or taking back Indian lands because Jim Davidson did another Chalky joke? These crackpot theories fuel a very sinister undercurrent.

    Is this another Tory ego wank like the freeport in the north-east? These projects make a lot of money for individuals even when they don't come to fruition. They don't have to be built, they just...

    I did an hour of snorkelling in a knackered 3mm suit on Sunday which was maybe a bit ambitious. I was forced to go to the chippy afterwards to replenish lost calories.
