How a wet and windy August day in Thanet, connects an airline tragedy outside Athens is a stretch of the imagination but some readers may have caught me covering the disaster on Sky News today.

We filmed the report from here as I wasn't prepared to drive up to Sky Centre and so they obligingly sent a satellite broadcast truck out to Thanet, with a little help from the GPS. "Where's Thanet", said Fiona on the Foreign desk at Sky.

"Well, "I replied, "it's not quite as far away from London as Athens but at times, given the regularity and reliability of our trains, it feels that way."

Tomorrow, I'm flying-up to Manchester to speak at an Intgralis seminar on security on Tuesday 16th so if your'e based in Manchester, you might want to drop in. Here's the link to the event.
