    We need someone to redo a bathroom in East Ham, please pass on the details if you think they'd do a good job!

    Looks like Mayor de Blasio is another stone cold loser - Trump was right.

    I remember reading about a cannabis farm in a nuclear bunker that had human-trafficked Vietnamese people basically living in slavery, in appalling conditions.

    That side of it is awful.

    Obviously this is crime, and crime is bad.

    But it's hugely audacious to set up a well-equipped cannabis farm on a high street and try to get away with it:

    The electrics don't look completely safe, but the amount of work that has gone into this without people finding out until now - when you think of the equipment, the plants themselves, the heat generated and the energy consumption - it's quite impressive.

    "I'm not a careerist," says politician who switches parties twice in year to whichever one is most likely to advance his career.

    Umunna’s defection raised eyebrows among some of his Change UK colleagues, who claimed he was the author of a leaked party strategy document urging an adversarial approach to the Lib Dems.

    Labour got c38,000 votes in Streatham in 2017, compared to the Lib Dems' c3,600.

    A by-election would be an excellent way to show you are a committed representative, surely your constituents love you?

    I'm not sure about that either.

    I think you could make a tenuous link between his championing of Theresa May on her resignation and her "hostile environment", which clearly had racist repercussions if not intentions.

    But nineteenth century racism would be pseudo-scientific racial hierarchies and an idea about "civilising" "backward" people and, while I didn't watch his hedgehog speech, I've not seen much indication of that.

    Is anyone moving imminently? We have quite a few packing boxes and a few boxes full of packing paper.

    I think the removals company will come and pick them up, but if anyone is moving themselves this could be useful.

    There is something quite sweet about seeing someone with that proper nineteenth-century public school optimistic attitude that you could literally go anywhere and have a bloody good crack at anything.

    He seems to have a genuine optimism and upbeat attitude which is quite refreshing. But his voting record shows he has that cold, dead-eyed careerist streak in him.
