Tanya Gold's take on the royal family's ability to project an impression of thrift while spending vast sums of public money is, in my humble republican opinion, the most entertaining published response to the appeal court's ruling that Prince Charles's correspondence with Tony Blair's cabinet should be published. The Guardian's leader on the topic of the so-called 'black spider' memos is also a stimulating read. I suspect the attorney general has a real fight on his hands. His argument appears to be that we must not know what Prince Charles's most passionate political opinions are because he is not supposed to have political opinions, and that his correspondence must therefore be suppressed because it might compromise the public's impression of his political neutrality. Convoluted or simply deluded? You choose.
Young reporters who are interested in sports journalism are needed to write football match reports for the Kent FA.
It is looking for volunteers to cover U16 and U18 men's matches and open age ladies games. There is no limit to the amount of games you can cover. You would have to arrange your own transport to home matches in Kent, but would be given a seat on the team bus to away games.
The reports would be about 400 words, and would be published with a byline on the Kent FA website.
I've attached the entry form. I hope some of you go for this - it's a great chance to get some work published.
