  1. Banksy backlash.

    The artwork - titled Mild Mild West - depicts a comic bear throwing a petrol bomb at three cowering policemen on the side of a dilapidated building in Stokes Croft, Bristol. But the artist's work was defaced as it was daubed in red paint by members of a protest group called Appropriate Media. The group claims artists such as Banksy - which it describes as "poor little middle class white boys" - are "gentrifying" urban areas by attracting the liberal elite. As a result, regeneration pushes up house prices and drives out low-income families. It is the second recent attack on Banksy's work - which could mark the beginning of an urban backlash against the street artist's move into the mainstream. A message on the Appropriate Media website labels Banksy a "guffhead of massive proportions" who is cashing in on the "capitalist created phenomenon of 'urban' art". It reads: "Graffiti artists are the performing spray-can monkeys for gentrification. "In collusion with property developers, they paint deprived areas bright colours to indicate the latest funky inner city area ripe for regeneration. "Pushing out low income families in their wake, to be replaced by middle class metrosexuals with their urban art collections." Gosh.

  3. "Ayre believes the Premier League's four biggest global draws – Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal – deserve an increased share from 2013, with overseas broadcasting having a greater influence on the Anfield club's financial future than a new stadium. "Personally I think the game-changer is going out and recognising our brand globally," said the Liverpool managing director. "Maybe the path will be individual TV rights like they do in Spain. There are so many things moving in that particular area. "What is absolutely certain is that, with the greatest of respect to our colleagues in the Premier League, but if you're a Bolton fan in Bolton, then you subscribe to Sky because you want to watch Bolton. Everyone gets that. Likewise, if you're a Liverpool fan from Liverpool, you subscribe. But if you're in Kuala Lumpur there isn't anyone subscribing to Astro, or ESPN to watch Bolton, or if they are it's a very small number. Whereas the large majority are subscribing because they want to watch Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal." Here we go.

  8. Craft Beer

    Is it all it's cracked up to be? I like the Camden Pils and their pale ale as I like the Brewdog IPA, Brooklyn Brewery Lager, Sierra Navada Pale Ale... Tried a sour ale recently and it was rank although they have a rising following. The Jester IPA in Marks and Sparks was nicely balanced and refreshing.
