Quite impressed how many people have looked at my photo of Nick Griffin on Flickr. 430 so far with one person adding it as a favourite and someone else inviting me to add it to an anti-Nazi group. The only sensible thing to do is to turn it into an LJ icon, hence <----. I've Creative Commonsed the original photo so feel free to pinch it

It's quite nice to have a period where politicians are trying to say as little as possible. If only it was always like that. I think Rupert Murdoch might be getting a shock that people don't actually like what he wants and they're harder to control than his newspapers and TV stations. Of course he could apply for British citizenship and vote like the rest of us.

With Tony McNulty and Dolores Umbridge's husband both being caught with their hands in the cookie jar, is there any good reason why 2nd homes allowances shouldn't just be abolished and MPs put up in serviced apartments like most people who travel on business and stay away from home for long periods? A one bed apartment with a separate office would do for single MPs, and a bigger place would be OK for people with families. No need for John Lewis lists: the furnishings would be supplied by the company running the apartments. I've stayed in one myself and found it to be quite comfortable and secure. It was a studio apartment and went for about £700/week but they had bigger places that were more expensive. A purpose built block for MPs could include things like a library and sports facilities, as well as extra security if needed.
