Whew, the Large Hadron Collider has recreated the conditions of the big bang – only much smaller.  Well its a start.  I did not notice the light flickering  or feel the ground shake so we must presume as the experiments continue the world will not disappear into its own fundamental firmament.

Apparently our international band of mad scientists hope to prove the existence of a whole new state of matter known as the Quark Gluon Plasma.  But what to do with the stuff?  Well, The Telegraph breathlessly tell us this discovery  could lead in turn to the uncovering of one of the fundamental forces that bind everything together.  Out of self interest and personal political bigotry I hope the first available tin of Gluon Plasma is picked up by Dave and Nick.  Maybe they could use it in Oldham and Saddleworth.

The return of Labour from its Twilight Zone into real space-time is not something I fancy.
