Carnival war on knives - but police turn blind eye to hippy crack: On the ground in Notting Hill 

The atmosphere at Notting Hill yesterday reflected a year of murder and violence in London as the largest police presence in six years patrolled the carnival.
Metal detectors known as ‘knife arches’ were placed at strategic points and officers were given increased powers to stop and search indiscriminately.
Scotland Yard imposed a Section 60 order across the carnival area between 9am and midnight, allowing the 7,000 officers to search anyone they believed might be carrying a weapon.
By 6pm, there had been 125 arrests, including 25 for possession of an offensive weapon and four for assaults on police officers.

Better our kids learn about working class heroes than Princess Diana 

As we reach that time of year when the quality of our school teaching is analysed, I want to give a shout out to Mike Leigh.
He’s the film director who’s made a movie about the 1819 Peterloo Massacre in Manchester, where sabre-waving cavalrymen surged into ­protestors peacefully campaigning for reform, killing 15 and injuring more than 650, making it the bloodiest ­political clash in British history.
The atrocity was a watershed moment, focusing attention on the fact that only 2% of Britons had the vote, and helped usher in social and ­electoral change.
Yet, as Leigh says, despite growing up in nearby Salford he was never taught at school about the massacre and it has never been on the national curriculum, meaning the vast majority of us may know about the six wives of a 16th-century monarch called Henry, but are ignorant of this pivotal event in our history. Which he reckons is a crying shame. I agree.

How many local kids had been taught about that in schools and how many on a national level learned about the brutal side of Churchill, I wondered. Probably none. It’s always peeved me how we celebrate our history.
Unlike, for example, the USA, which has a public holiday in honour of civil rights activist Martin Luther King and teaches its children to sing God Bless America, we tell our national tale through the narrow prism of monarchs, Eton-educated prime ministers and gallant dukes leading men to war, telling our kids to sing God Save The Queen. We rarely teach them about heroic working-class figures whose actions brought about real change to ordinary lives.
I recently narrated a film about legendary trade union leader Jack Jones who took on four of the 20th century’s greatest evils – poverty, fascism, worker exploitation and pensioner neglect – resulting in the improvement of lives of countless millions, yet few know of his work.
