They used to call August the silly season when politicians and journalists went away on holiday. The newspapers were stuck with stories of cats stuck up trees. Not so this August. These are the current stories: 1. Riots in the UK; 2. Famine in the horn of Africa; 3. America's credit rating degraded; 4. The Euro collapsing; 5 War in Libya; 6. War in Afghanistan; 7. Atrocities in Syria; 8. The aftermath of the Norway Massacre; 9. The aftermath of Levi-Strauss; 10. England walloping India in the Test Match.
