Six of the Best 15

  1. Prof. Paul Reynolds excoriates (hem, hem) Tory plans to introduce street cameras with number plate recognition software to North West Leicestershire.

  2. Invaluable work from the Environmental Justice Foundation and Anti-Slavery International in exposing child labour in Uzbekistan is highlighted by Craig Murray.

  3. Skipper argues that Alistair Darling has proved himself the real star of Brown's original cabinet.

  4. On the Guardian Books Blog Alison Flood celebrates the 50th anniversary of the publication of The Weirdstone of Brisingamen - and Alan Garner's work in general. But why no mention of Elidor?

  5. Unmitigated England explains why the Wheel & Compass in Weston by Welland has an ungainly third storey. It's a 19th century dormitory for railway navvies.

  6. The lucky people of Seattle can look forward to a season of British film noir. Scarecrow Video has the programme and some Youtube clips.
