OOH that Justin Welby he does say some strange things. The Archbishop of Canterbury says: “I sometimes wonder whether God exists.” He added: “There are moments when you think, ‘Is there a God? Where is God?’”

SORRY if you’re already worrying yourself witless about your departing 18-year-old – but in York, the university and the students’ union hired a private ambulance to look after new students as they drank themselves stupid in Freshers’ Week.

WE couldn’t see out the back windows of the car on Saturday for pillows and bedding, boxes of groceries, pots and pans, laptop and docking station, suitcases and bags full of clothes, shoes and sports gear. There was just about enough room to fit in a 6ft 4-and-a-bit inch student too.

PERHAPS more than any of the other English regions, the North-East has reason to understand the frustrations of the Scottish people. Just as the Scots didn’t vote for a Conservative-led Government, the majority of people in the North-East – in Middlesbrough, Darlington, Durham, and Newcastle – are also governed by an administration they didn’t choose.

Car parking has been a thorny issue in Darlington for some time. I'm still trying to get my head round the fact that the council's enforcement department even went to the lengths of doctoring the date on a document used as "evidence" when I appealed against a parking fine a couple of years back.

I HAVE always loved trains. From the age of five, I was taken into Leeds Central or Leeds City to catch the steam train to Scarborough or Morecambe. On a good day, you didn’t even have to go all the way into town, for the train stopped at Armley Junction, just around the corner from our house.

SOMETHING is rotten in the state of England. At the highest level, a rigid political policy which declares that ethnic and religious minorities must not be offended has ensured that for decades untold thousands of children have been sexually abused.

IN the present international crisis, I’m surprised not to have seen quoted a twoline poem by the late Philip Larkin, written in 1969: When the Russian tanks roll westward, what defence for you and me?

SINCE leaving Downing Street in June 2007 Tony Blair has accumulated untold wealth. Literally untold, since establishing its exact scale among a web of business enterprises centred on Mr Blair virtually defies analysis – at least outside HM Revenue and Customs, which one hopes (not with great confidence) is on top of the job.

THE West doesn’t do foreign policy. Instead, President Obama makes slick speeches, David Cameron performs PR stunts, the EU issues memoranda of intent then does nothing, while the best that Theresa May can come up with is “Asbos for extremists” – making murderous terrorists go stand in the naughty corner for half an hour.

THE great advantage of a typewriter over a computer – apart from the ability to work through power cuts and not baffle you with idiotic unpredictable behaviour – is that it’s just the right height for a nap.
