CoffeeHousers’ Wall, 20 July - 26 July

CoffeeHousers' Wall, 20 July - 26 July
Text settings

Welcome to the latest CoffeeHousers' Wall. For those who haven't come across the Wall before, it's a post we put up each Monday, on which - providing your writing isn't libellous, crammed with swearing, or offensive to common decency - you'll be able to say whatever you like in the comments section.

There is no topic, so there's no need to stay 'on topic' - which means you'll be able to debate with each other more freely and extensively. There's also no constraint on the length of what you write - so, in effect, you can become Coffee House bloggers. Anything's fair game - from political stories in your local paper, to chat about the latest football results.

But, more than anything, we want this Wall to become a means of better communication between the Coffee House team and you, the readers. If you want us to write on anything in particular - add a comment to the Wall. If you want to ask us any questions - add a comment to the Wall. If you have any thoughts about this feature - add a comment to the Wall. The Coffee House team will do its best to get involved in the conversations that you start.

To give the wall a splash of colour, you can even send your photos and videos in to dblackburn @ spectator.co.uk or phoskin @ spectator.co.uk and we'll select the best to put at the top of the post. Any pictures of politicians doing the constituency rounds? Any videos of interesting debates? Do send them in.

You can access this Wall throughout the week by clicking on the Wall button on the righthand side of any Coffee House page.



Here's an example of a recent but now quite traditional and unavoidable part of contemporary British life - an urban fox. This fellow lives in Lewisham, south east London, where he often comes into my back garden in the hope that he will get something thrown to him to eat - he usually does. This photograph was taken earlier this month and shows him looking rather lupine --- MikeF
