Southland, TV review: This last-ever episode was as pessimistic ever

independent.co.uk — After five seasons of unrelenting (no) fun in the LA sun, was it too much to expect a happy ending for the seasoned cops of Southland (More4)? Fans of this intermittently excellent, yet never hugely popular, procedural, have long since grown used to pessimistic plot turns.

Life expectancy calculator will allow people to plan ahead but needs to be handled carefully

independent.co.uk — Should people be given a forecast of when they are likely to die? That's Pension Minister Steve Webb's latest proposal. But far from being a ghoulish idea, it's an eminently sensible one.

Simon Read: Working people can still get help with benefits

independent.co.uk — Last week I called for banks to warn us when we hit the red. I wrote that I'd like to force banks to contact all those who go into the red, to alert them to impending charges. Further, I said I'd make them give customers time to put their accounts back into the black and avoid excessive charges.
