Is "The Nutt Sack Affair" the finest name ever for a political embarrassment?

And why do I have a sudden urge to look for Man From UNCLE slash about their fight against thrush THRUSH? (I don't really. But I bet it exists.)

(P.S. I wouldn't much mind politicians saying "other considerations result in our following a different policy from the one our science advisors recommend". But they should be honest that that is what they are doing, and the advisors should be free to say that their advice was different.)

I suspect Diesel Sweeties have a point, but it's a hell of lot better than the alternative.


[EDIT: Actually I'm feeling a lot more positive about Obama than that suggests.]

(This is different from the online petition http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/roads4bikes/)

So, five years on from 9/11, and they haven't caught Osama bin Laden, and Condoleezza Rice is worried that NATO might be struggling in Afghanistan.

Maybe it was it a mistake to get distracted by starting an Iraq war which has killed more Americans than 9/11.

And here's another paper about the insecurity of Diebold voting machines.

I was annoyed by hearing Charles Clarke on the radio attempting to defend the governments record on civil liberties, mostly by lying about it.
Chris Lightfoot on the subject.

(I can't remember whether I've ranted about the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill, or just been depressed by it and left writing about it to people who do a better job. But if you haven't heard of it, see http://www.saveparliament.org.uk/)
