I am not certain that Adonis is entirely right in the head. Moving an elected House of Lords away from Britain's legal, financial and cultural capital will simply serve to nullify any influence it may gain by being democratically elected and will only serve to contribute to the elected dictatorship of the commons.

Europhobia, xenophobia and implicit condonation of the EDL is no way to reinvent the Labour Party. Fighting for the centre ground does not mean adopting the vilest policies of the Tory backbenchers. Blue Labour is nonsense, pandering to the lowest common denominator.

I find it appalling, that when we have the Conservatives on the run over phone hacking and the economy, that Ed Miliband should resort to this political dredging. There is absolutely no reason, when the majority of people are worried about the dog's breakfast that Osborne has made of the economy, to pander to petty prejudice and the Daily Mail mob.

The coalition government's "enterprise zones" seem to be as nebulous and ineffective a concept as their "big society". It is disappointing that the Tories should run back to one of the great failures of the Thatcher years, but with an economic policy so lacking in strategy, it is possible that they see no option for the future but to repeat the mistakes of the past. Perhaps a "natural pause" to "reflect" and "reconsider" is in order?

Parliament is often accused of being old, antiquated, or out of touch; so it's wonderful to see that at least one member of the Commons is willing to modernise.  Step forward, Bercow.   Your new, prohibition era 'greaser' hairstyle is wonderfully fresh, coming straight from the 1920s.

Cut for those for whom 'grease' is *not* the word. )
