Those hankering after something worthwhile to read have 2 interesting choices.
The ' London Review of Books ' begins each year with extracts from the diary of Alan Bennett and the 2011 thoughts , 3 big pages of them , were published yesterday. Marvellous.
The decision of the FA to ban the Liverpool player , Suarez, is equally compelling and the decision , written by employment silk Paul Goulding , is an object lesson in how to construct a decision. Two experts were instructed to explain the use of the word "negro " in a South American context ( let alone " your sister's cxnt" ) but why did they not get a lip reader to look at all the recordings and determine what was said ?
