A memorial to the thousands of horses shipped into battle from Hampshire during World War I has been unveiled by Princess Anne in Romsey, the home of Alex, our 'Ampshire correspondent. About 110,000 of the 1.3 million horses and mules involved in the conflict passed through a giant military depot just outside Romsey. Local residents raised £50,000 for the public art, which was created by sculptor Amy Goodman and is now proudly displayed in the town's Memorial Park.

Recently I was dispatched north of the border to see if I could negotiate a reconciliation with our ingrate neighbours. On arrival I was advised that the man to see was not the Blessed Nicola, the First Minister, but the Flying Scotsman. I protested that I thought this was a steam-belching train but was assured that the famous Scot did indeed exist and advised he couldn't be found below three thousand feet.
Eventually, I found an delightful man waiting to welcome Sassenachs to the land where 'austerity, simply means maxing out on your credit cards and allowing others to foot the bill. I questioned whether he really was the Flying Scotsman.......
So he spread his wings and did a golden eagle impression...
I told him we were fed up with the Barnett formula and that we were seeking to revoke it. He asked if this mean they had to take a haircut and I confirmed it did. His entreaties for us to reconsider however fell on deaf ears....
He then proceed to recite to me the most beautiful poem about friendship and humanity and I felt forced to recant.....
Eventually I asked what they were doing with all this extra money and he explained that as most people north of the border lived on a diet of fried Mars bars they were now equipping all phone boxes with defibrillators...
Having failed totally in my mission I decided I might be better off visiting those other austerity deniers living on the shores of the Aegean Sea to see if I could help clear out their stables.
However before I left Scotland, I took a photo for the weekly quiz. I found these wheelbarrows close to the backdoor of a pub. One explanation is that the locals get so 'mullahed' on a Saturday night that their children have to come and fetch them in the wheelbarrows... or is there another explanation?
