Wimbledon fortnight starts today with appropriately awful weather and with Ten Henman left to fly the flag for Britain after Andrew Murray dropped out with injury.

To put that in perspective, the Lib Dems are at 80-1 to have the most seats after the next election and William Hague is 100-1 to be foreign secretary in Gordon Brown’s cabinet.
