ID Cards website

My good friend and colleague Mark tells me that those pesky Lib Dems have launched a new campaign against Labour's Identity Cards plans - take a look at www.libdems.org.uk/noidcards

If I was very clever I would probably also be able to add a link button to my site. Sadly I am not.

Trumpton on the web

I'm sure anyone of a similae age to mine will be as astounded as I was to discover that you can get Trumpton ringtones!

I can still vividly remember excitedly waiting to find out what was in Lord Belborough's mystery crate.

Guess which DVDs my little one will be getting for Christmas!

The West Wing

Despite having missed the last series I thoroughly enjoyed the first two episodes of series 6 on More 4 on Friday.

Then I found this:



Ahh, the ever-cynical and sarcastic speechwriter. Gutsy and not afraid to speak up or clash with authority, his dry wit is amusing. But under it all he's just a big teddy bear... and the world's biggest Yankees fan.

Interference

So Tony Blair has warned Iran not to interfere in neighbouring Iraq then.

You couldn't make it up.

First they came for the hecklers ...

Lots of people have already commented on the heavy handed approach to Walter Wolfgang at the Labour Conference.

The two aspects of the incident that I find most worrying are:

1 That only one other delegate had the strength of character to intervene;

2 The use of the Terrorism Act to detain Mr Wolfgang when he tried to return to the hall.

I seem to remember lots of promises that these new police powers would only be used when absolutely necessary and that we liberals had no reason to get all hot and bothered about them.

Sadly, Labour trying to screen out dissent no longr surprises me at all.
