On the road again 1

On the road again

Sadly, I won’t be able to watch tonight’s final Prime Ministerial debate, as I’m doing a Your Dad gig in Lancaster. And then I’m going to spend the night hanging out at Killington Lake...

Dreadful Old Man 9

Dreadful Old Man

When old Perry Venus and I were out doing The Longest Crawl, we met a lot of lovely people. One rosy-cheeked old gentleman who we met in a Worcestershire cherry orchard could not have...

Seems quite simple to me… 8

Seems quite simple to me…

For the longest time, I’ve been a supporter of the Green Party. Sometimes I’ve paid my subs, and sometimes not. Sometimes I’ve been active, and sometimes (usually, if I’m honest), I’ve been supine. But...

Sod it again 3

Sod it again

Another Sunday, and another set of psephological puzzles. Cleggy has come out and said that the Lib Dems wouldn’t support keeping Gordon in No. 10 if the New Party got the lowest number of...

How long, Lord, how long? 3

How long, Lord, how long?

Poor wee David Milliband. The punishment for the Iraq War goes on and on. Today he is in the papers complaining about the way the Lib Dems just hark on about it; and who...

Undecided? 15

Undecided?

Here’s a little thing that might help. I’d be interested to know how people got on… all comments published, as ever. And if you think a blog should be longer than just one link,...

The strange death of Labour in England

I was breakfasting in Elda’s Colombian Coffee House recently, chatting with my pal Nat, who told me about life out on the stump. Nat knows a bit about it, having stood for Parliament on...

Oh, sod it… 4

Oh, sod it…

…after all, Sunday Night is supposed to be Music Night here on Radio Free Radnorshire. I was going to blog a rant about the inequity of a voting system that might see the New...

Radical Disgust

An easy blog today. Something very strange and noteworthy would have to happen later in the day for me to want to blog anything else, so I’m going early, leaving me free to work...

If it was just about Celebs… 0

If it was just about Celebs…

… I really wouldn’t know what to do. After all, today Cameron was out with Gazza Bazza, who wrote one of my favourite songs of the last I don’t know how long… Whilst Eddie...

Eyjafjallajokull 15

Eyjafjallajokull

I loved the televised debate, me, but then I’m a political anorak, so I would. Like everyone, I thought Cleggy was the winner, though I thought My Little David did best on body language,...
