Here’s a new video about rent arrears from the Ministry of Justice.
It’s presented by District Judge Stephen Gold, who, presumably, knows a thing or two about landlord/tenant disputes.
His … err … Worship? Lordship? … is a rather dapper looking chap, not, we think, the type to gaze down from the bench and loftily enquire of the court: “Who is Gazza?”
Which is just as well, because the last thing you want when you’re in a sticky financial situation is baffling advice from some unintelligible legal relic.
Gold, it has to be said, is a tad plummy, but he’s also sensible, engaging and easy to follow.
And he obviously knows exactly what he’s talking about.
Our favourite shed blog, er, Shed Blog, has posted the rather fantastic new video for the official Shed Week song.
Sung with gusto by ‘Punks not Dad‘ it’s called, appropriately enough, ‘In Me Shed’.
Great video, great sentiment (it’s about all the things we do in our sheds) and pretty catchy in a ‘we know 3-ish chords and we’re gonna use them in best punk thrash fashion and we don’t caaaaaaaaare’.
Plus there’s a great introduction from “Lisa Rodgers (Off of TV’s Scrapheap Challenge)” (sic).
All in all a fine effort and a grand punk ode to the joy of sheds.
And a one, a two, a one, two, three, four …
“In me shed – reading the paper
In me shed – stirring up some paint
In me shed – sorting out me jam jars
In me shed in me shed”

Ok, this isn’t the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, but it did raise a smile.
And all credit to the Energy Savings Trust for trying to get beyond eco-worthiness by using comedian Marcus Brigstocke to talk about the eco-renovations he’s made to his London home.
Interesting interview with Robin Bew of the Economist Intelligence Unit on cantosTV.
Bew sees some signs of improvement and reckons we may be close to the bottom, a sentiment that echoes a lot of the recent commentary on the housing market.
Oh, but hang on (cough) – I’m feeling a little feverish. Could that be swine flu? And if so, will it return us all to the Middle Ages? Click play to find out …
