Waving his Scouse credentials, Pete Doherty turns up in Liverpool for the second time in a week. There's a lovely review of the night on Liverpool Confidential, which sums up the 'but why?'-ness of it all:
The organisers of the club night which brought him up are keen for Doherty to hang around a lot more:
"The night went very well indeed and Pete loved performing in Liverpool so was very excited to be here. I know people had doubts but he made it and the crowd loved him.
"He is a pure gentleman, very charismatic, polite and friendly."
What Miller forgot to mention, of course, is that the crowd had each paid twenty-two quid to watch - no wonder they want to get him up as often as they can.
We're sure it's only coincidence that that think-tank created by Michael Gove yesterday issued its report suggesting people who live in Liverpool would be better off moving down south.
