This week, Michael Duggan misses a good old-fashioned football punch-up and Mary Dejevsky explores the cinema adverts detailing the sickness of NHS staff. Julie Burchill explains why British women are so unhappy. Alec Marsh doesn’t think penknives are dangerous and disagrees with the idea of the new Swiss Army knife – which doesn’t feature a blade. Robin Ashenden argues with a Puglian pugilist and Julie Bindel rages against irritating food trends. Finally, John Sturgis marvels at the Northern Lights.
