THE Government yesterday urged us all to be on our guard against identity theft, as the number of ID fraud cases has rocketed almost seven-fold in the last six years. However, for anyone out there who has a spare identity - there's an A. McLeish of Govan who might soon be interested

WE were fascinated to read on Page 8 that a single day on Venus is equivalent to 243 Earth days. On a pro rata basis, that would allow for a 10-day lunch. John Prescott just put his name down for the first manned mission
