The Notting Hill carnival starts tomorrow,, whoops, today with all the glad handing photo opportunities that go with this massive corporate event.

It seems the police will be cracking down on 'erb smoking and general behaviour of the black kind. No softly softly this year. It will end in tears, mark my words.
