On Saturday morning we find ourselves entwined with Geri Halliwell's famous dress in the Daily Telegraph, figuratively speaking that is.
That dress did make history, of sorts. Because the Spice Girls were clearly not members of the BNP but an insanely successful and curiously likeable group, one of whom was destined to go far in the fashion business. The Ginger one would end up having a collection in Next. But not before she helped snatch the Union flag from the style doldrums.
Meanwhile, Brian Paddick is seemingly flogging a dead horse in the Guardian:
If the Lib Dems increased their number of assembly seats from three to four they would deprive the British National party of a seat and install Shas Sheehan, a Muslim woman. "We want to have as many London assembly members as we possibly can," Paddick says. "So No 4 on the list is a Muslim Asian woman. If more people vote Liberal Democrat we could have a Muslim Asian woman on the London assembly instead of what we got last time, which was somebody from the BNP."
Little hope of that after this week's spectacular own goal, set up by Baroness Tonge and firmly tapped into the net by Nick Clegg, simultaneously alienating the Muslim block vote and the powerful Jewish lobby. Sky Sports has the action:
During a visit to Middlesex University, Baroness Tonge warned Israel "would not be there forever" and would "reap what it had sown" in the Middle East.
When her remarks to students emerged, party leader Mr Clegg asked her to apologise or resign. She quit.
Baroness Tonge told the BBC on Friday she had received significant support since the row erupted.
"I think [Mr Clegg acted] very hastily and I think ill-advisedly. He's going to have a lot of flak about it, I do know that...
The peer and former MP denied her views were unfounded theories.
"My conspiracy theories? It is not a conspiracy theory. I base my comments on what is happening to Palestinians in those areas, let alone what is happening now in East Jerusalem.
"Everywhere you look and go you see the brutalisation of Palestinians. That is not conspiracy, that is facts on the ground."
She has said her original remarks were taken out of context and followed an "ill-tempered meeting in which Zionist campaigners attempted continually to disrupt proceedings".
Labour leader Ed Miliband wrote on Twitter: "No place in politics for those who question existence of the state of Israel."
As it happens I have a considerable amount of sympathy with the Palestinians myself, but there again the Jewish people have a right to their homeland in Israel. I console myself, with it not really being any of the business of my people, Miliband doesn't have that luxury.
