One of the most incongruous parties last week was the launch of Inside Space, an online art gallery selling prints and photographs by artists from Auerbach to Wentwor th . The event was held at the Challenge of Materials gallery at the Science Museum (why? ), with entertainment from that scurrilous duo Kit and the Widow, still celebrating Robin Cook's sexual triumphs in song, while on a giant screen a large octopus writhed disgustingly.

Oddest of all, at the end of the evening, David Puttnam, chairman of Inside Space's backers, media consultancy Spectrum, made a speech to the assembled company - about how under-appreciated teachers are. It seems appropriate that one of the non-executive directors of Inside Space is one Alex Reid.Hewas not, however, spotted at the party - presumably still licking his wounds after his defeat in the presidential election.
