They're not done yet. Bristol City put pressure on their top six rivals by grabbing a vital three points at The Den on Tuesday evening. A comeback win after conceding the first goal showed remarkable strength of mind for Lee Johnson's side as they netted twice in the final 15 minutes to make it three wins from three in their trips to London this season and move within a point of Derby County. The Robins made capital gains through late goals from Jamie Paterson's wonderful free-kick and a fine Famara Diedhiou volley and the race for the top six goes on, for another day at least with Swansea hosting the sixth-placed Rams at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday. Neil Harris' team lived up the billing and took the lead after Lee Gregory acrobatically hooked in from a Steve Morison downward header. But City regrouped and remained in the contest thanks to a great Max O'Leary penalty save in the second half. Missing the 19-year-old suspended striker Antoine Semenyo for the first of three games, … [Read more...] about Bristol City pass Millwall character test to keep play-off hopes alive

A computer analyst whose memory was wiped by a rare brain infection now relies on a daily diary to remind her to eat and shower - but is incapable of "dwelling on negatives" as she forgets what they are. Just a few years ago, after landing a lucrative job as a website systems tester and moving into her own place, Clair Bennett, now 29, of Swanley, Kent, had the world at her feet. But, after complaining of “violent headaches ” and feeling increasingly feverish, in 2015 she was struck down by encephalitis – a rare but serious inflammation of the brain - which left her unable to remember things after only a few minutes. Clair, who spent a lengthy stint in hospital, asked her dad Mark, 60, to speak out on her behalf for World Encephalitis Day 2019 on February 22, explaining how she now keeps a planner, which lists every task – however big or small – she has to complete on any given day.

The people behind London’s blue plaques scheme are looking for fresh sug-gestions, so here’s mine. By a little canal bridge in Limehouse, east London, there ought to be a sign remembering one of the great what-ifs of British politics: “The SDP 1981-1988, a progressive party, was born here,” it should read — recalling the winter day when some of the Labour Party’s most famous figures set off from this spot on a journey to form a new centre force of their own. This week, politics is having an Eighties moment. First came news that eight Labour MPs are starting a journey towards creating a new party which may turn out to be the SDP, Mark II — one that has become less lonely after three Tories dramatically jumped ship to join them today. Then came the readmission to Labour ranks of the former Militant deputy leader of Liverpool council, Derek Hatton — the man who defined Neil Kinnock’s fight to reform his party in order to hold … [Read more...] about Have the Westminster rebels found a cause?
