Brian Harvey has filmed the fitting of a pre-pay electricity meter in his home against his wishes and under the supervision of the police. The former East 17 star recorded the officers acting on the magistrates' warrant. The video was later uploaded to the YouTube channel of conspiracy theorist David Icke with the title 'Brian Harvey - Police State Walthamstow'. The singer noted repeatedly throughout the clip that he was not liable for bills sent by Southern Electric bills because they were addressed to a Mr H Harvey. At the end of the clip, he claims that "communist China springs to mind" and suggests that we are living in a "police state". Watch the Brian Harvey video below: Harvey (more) »

Rob Brydon is back on our screens with a second series – are you watching, and what are your favourite talkshow moments?
Rob Brydon's show is not a chatshow in the conventional sense. In an attempt to put a new spin on the genre, he interacts with the audience and banters with guests – or more accurately, mates – who, in a break with tradition, aren't usually plugging anything. It's not all good – he indulges in some mildly tiresome impressions and regrettable singing – but he's been endorsed by Michael Parkinson, who has claimed he has a "rare gift in comedians, the ability to ask a question and listen to the answer".
You might think that would be the very least you'd expect from a talkshow host, but you'd be surprised how few manage it, often looking distracted in the cutaways as they think of their next question or smartarse remark. So what »

Conor Oberst may have discovered the most compelling evangelist for the secret-lizard-people theory this side of David Icke. At the start of Bright Eyes’ latest, in a gravelly voice and conversational tone, Refried Ice Cream singer Denny Brewer spins a tale of biblically presaged reptilian aliens before hitting a thesis few could disparage. “Love’s always been the message,” he says. “It’s just—circumstances happen, right?” Crucially, it’s easy to imagine Brewer convincing the impressionable.

Cut off from the world by his iPhone earbuds and hoodie, neighbors and classmates say alleged murderer Jared Lee Loughner was a deeply disturbed young man who'd been wandering the neighborhood with an especially strange look in his eyes in recent days. But is he a calculating killer on a political mission-or a desperate young man battling severe mental illness? Eve Conant, Claire Martin and Masada Siegel report.• Jared Lee Loughner appeared in court on Monday. He did not enter a plea but confirmed that he understood the charges against him. He had a shaved head and a cut on his right temple. He was mostly silent, but appeared to smirk in front of the judge. • Loughner refuses to cooperate with officials and hasn't spoken since his arrest other than his courtroom appearance. • He'll be represented by Judy Clarke, the lawyer who defended Unabomber Ted Kaczynski and worked on Timothy McVeigh's legal team. »
