In years to come, when reminiscing about London 2012, we’ll look back fondly to what made the Olympics so special.
Keith Gabriel: Brewing up change in city
As I write, I am boozing a bottle of drink.
Keith Gabriel: God save our gracious Beeb
I’m starting with a disclaimer: I err on the side of republican.

I’ve been invited to the Birmingham Young Professional of the Year (BYPY) awards dinner.
Keith Gabriel: A bit of PR might breathe life into the mayor debate
There is a politician so bumbling, he accidentally fell into a river during his own contrived photo opportunity, like Miranda Hart with a mandate.
Keith Gabriel: Don't forget Birmingham's brilliant old buildings
Birmingham has many fine historic buildings which appear to serve no purpose
Keith Gabriel: Bad and worse sports PR
There are some things said by a client that are guaranteed to induce heart palpitations in a PR professional:
Keith Gabriel: We're all in it ... but I'm not sure we're together
I feel sorry for rich people. The poor things, if you pardon the contradiction.
Keith Gabriel: Delighted to see good old cliché

When Steve Coogan and Hugh Grant expressed rage at bin-scavenging journos, they should have pointed some of their disdain towards the readers.
Keith Gabriel: I worry my referendum nightmares come true
The face of Nick Clegg is haunting me. Yes: Nick Clegg.
Keith Gabriel: Foxy Knoxy and the Hemming love triangle - is the media sexist or sexy?
Newspapers have always been drawn to reconfiguring a news story if there’s a beauty involved, unless it’s the love-triangled cat belonging to John Hemming’s lover.
Keith Gabriel: Society's ills aren't down to role models
The concept of a role model has always rankled with me.

Keith Gabriel: There's still a few good guys left in journalism
I have a confession to make. Please do not think any less of me.

Art is, to our busy, fulfilling lives, like a Sodastream is to a kitchen: a pleasant routine-breaker, but ultimately a beacon of superfluousness.
Keith Gabriel: Everyone is a loser in the debate about the second city
Birmingham. I love this city. A city I love like a worryingly obese kid loves cake.
Keith Gabriel: Not feeling super about the rise of injunctions
In my formative years, anything prefixed with ‘super’ was instantly a whole world of awesome.
Keith Gabriel: Modern communications and the easy way to have a good whinge
That subtle sensation of dissatisfaction. A compulsion to remonstrate against an unacceptable slight on your expectations.
