  • Chatting with the barrista at my favourite Crouch End café this morning stirred a thought. At a time of global recession why are we still having to fight for trans rights? It's time to recognise that animal rights now are as important as women's rights last century.

  • Collecting my oak-smoked Salmon and dry-cured Trout direct from the smokehouse led me to a fascinating chat with the proprietor this afternoon. Before economic development, the people of Africa need to regain confidence in their cultural identity. Add that to the list of promises Obama has broken.

    Mirage would be next and it would be a must win map if we were to make it into the top four. The squad took the first pistol round but Excel managed to keep securing the early rounds in a very back and forth first half. At the end of the half, the boys in red held a slender 8-7 lead. Winning the second pistol round was a great start to the half. The momentum seemed to be in their favour, moving quickly to match point with a solid round advantage over the opposition. Excel slowly began to reduce the deficit after some poor after plant situations and eventually forced overtime. Momentum had swung in favour of Excel, taking Inferno 19-16 after overtime to take the series 2-0. logo Digitizing
