2015 General Election Day 6: #nicolasturgeonsfault

This was meant to be a relatively quiet period in the campaign, wasn’t it? Thanks to Nicola Sturgeon doing moderately well in the leaders’ debate on Thursday, it seems the right-wing press have gone back to their 2010 election manuals and begun monstering…

2015 General Election Day 4: Not-so-Magnificent Seven

Another day, another debate. It didn’t turn into the seven-way shoutathon that I feared, but there were points when there were lots of people talking over each other – usually 2 or 3 of the men – though Julie Etchingham managed to keep…

Battle for Number 10: Morning after thoughts

In no particular order: The real winners last night were Jeremy Paxman and Channel 4. Given the chance to do what he does best and forensically interview leading politicians, Paxman was at his best. Both times, it felt a shame that the interview…

Not Watching This Weekend: The Remake

It has come to our attention that barely weeks after its official release, one of the earliest projects of Not Watching This Weekend Studios is now being remade by a rival fantasy production studio. This gang of young upstarts, apparently known as The…

What does David Cameron mean by ‘family’? And who’s not part of it?

I’ve decided that from now on any policy I expose on this blog or elsewhere will have to have to have gone through a ‘people test’ first. This will determine what their effects will be on people, so we can be sure these…

David Cameron and the expert use of metaphors

When David Cameron says Great news that Boris plans to stand at next year's general election – I've always said I want my star players on the pitch. — David Cameron (@David_Cameron) August 6, 2014 Do you think he remembers this? But then,…

How to ‘refresh’ the Lords

Via Jennie, Michael Crick on how many new peers need to be appointed to make the House of Lords representative of the votes cast at the last election. It’s an absurd number, but then it’s part of an absurd system where people get…

In a blog post to be published today, Mr Barlow will say…

In light of the crisis in Algeria, David Cameron has opted to postpone giving his much-trailed speech on Britain’s place in Europe, which he was planning to deliver today. Of course, this leaves lots of holes in media schedules from people who’d expected…
