What we learned this week

  • Under new primary school guidelines, studying the Second World War will be non-compulsory, but children will have to master Twitter.
  • In probably unrelated news, this is a big week for the anarchists. Watch this space.
  • Iraq is the next hot tourist destination. For the architecture, the history, and the migratory birds of course – nothing to do with the frisson of holidaying in a war zone.
  • There are now 62 Lego pieces for every person on the planet. Not much to work with on our own, but imagine what we could do if we pooled them and had 41,833,575,424 pieces to play with. There’s a metaphor for life in there somewhere.
