QUOTESOFTHEDAY THE FAR SIDE BY GarY larson at the old Cartoonists home BaKerloo line: severe delays are due to a signal failure at piccadilly circus. DistriCt line: minor delays due to earlier signal failure at hammersmith. CamDen town: no down escalator available, access to the platforms is via a staircase. nTHE paratrooper raid that freed kidnapped journalist Stephen Farrell was approved by Gordon Brown and decided jointly between military commanders in Afghanistan and ministers, sources said today. With accusations flying that the raid was unnecessary and had cost too many lives, a source said that a delay could have had just as tragic an outcome. lonDonS HouSE pRIcE SnoopERS: pAgE 17 PGoRDoN BRoWN is preparing to send more troops to Afghanistan if other countries agree to increase their deployments. Up to 2,000 extra soldiers would be earmarked to train the Afghan army to take on the Taliban, speeding up the eventual withdrawal of British forces, currently 9,000 strong. The send them in, train them up and get out strategy could receive cross-party backing. Senior Tories are pressing the idea with David Cameron being advised by military chiefs that it is the quickest way to quit Afghanistan. Decisions will be taken after US commander General Stanley McChrystal publishes his long- delayed new strategic plan, which has gone through dozens of drafts because of wrangling over troops numbers between allies. Mr Brown has now joined Germanys Angela Merkel and French president Nicolas Sarkozy in calling for a UN summit that would set milestones towards a withdrawal. A senior government source said Mr Brown was very concerned that any extra British contribution would be matched by a big increase in numbers from France and Germany. HoUSE prices rose for the second month in a row in August -- fuelling hopes of a rebound in the property market. A lack of supply and a greater demand for homes was behind the rise of 0.8 per cent, said Halifax. The average cost of a property in the UK rose to 160,973, broadly in line with where prices were at the end of last year. Prices were still down 10.1 per cent in the three months to August versus a year ago, but the year- on-year drop was the lowest figure since July 2008. Better affordability and low interest rates were also said to be behind the boost, and the Monetary Policy Committee today held rates at their 0.5 per cent record low.
