Sunday Monday nights, bits and pieces, tweets and links that didn’t make a full post during the week.
* AFTER Labour parliamentary candidate Tulip Siddiq’s fury at being accused of faking stamps on her Nando’s chicken loyalty cards, a pledge from the company to investigate:
@TulipSiddiq Hey, we’re sorry to hear about that. We shall be in touch soon to discuss in more detail. Thanks

* FAREWELL to actor Peter O’Toole, who died yesterday A worthy time to recall to the anecdote published here before from Ken Livingstone’s memoirs, You Can’t Say That: “Ben Whitaker became Hampstead’s first MP in 1966 when the actor Peter O’Toole hired a coach with Guinness on tap and went round the pubs of Kilburn promising a free drink and ride to the polling station for anyone voting Labour.”
