"Milifandom soars with Twitter backing for Labour leader Ed Miliband"

Alastair knows about this twitter thing, though I'm not convinced his smugness, if asked, would be anything other than intolerable. Maybe Fiona?

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.

I find it somewhat ironic that Cameron should announce the forcible opening up of public service provision to private sector companies on the day that Southern Cross has folded. The man's timing is impeccable. Were he not being crucified in absentia by the commons and the popular press over his failure to disassociate himself from Murdoch with sufficient alacrity and zeal, I have no doubt that this would be considered a major faux pas.  As it is, he's made so many in the past 14 months that this one barely registers.

Once again, I believe I have been proven correct.

It is a pity that Cameron's most able spokesman is currently unable to help him. From what I've seen thus far, he rather needs the assistance.

Bilderberg is usually interesting, and 2011 certainly did not disappoint. Apart from the occasional slip-up, it all ran wonderfully smoothly. A few familiar faces, some more receptive to our policies than others. A pity, then, that Miliband junior and Bercow minor seem unable to behave in a reasonable manner during my absence...

First the IMF, now the WTO. What other acronymed organisations will the Guardian suggest? MoD? RBS? WWF?

An interesting suggestion, but one that I doubt will come to fruition damn it.

It would mean spending rather less time at home than I've grown accustomed to, but no doubt the look on Gordon's face challenge of the role would more than compensate...

A failure to curb banker's excessive pay and bonuses, and now what looks like a rather cowardly retreat from breaking up the banks.  One might almost think that this Tory-led government is in the pocket of the banking industry.

Same old Tories you know, they haven't changed.

The boy is doing well, certainly better than is helpful given the current situation. Our long term strategy is reasonably secure, but a short term boost to keep us in the public's good books would not be unwelcome.

...and of course, a scattershot approach to divert media attention elsewhere can be very effective.
therealpm: (Plotting)
Other than the minor amusement of dispatching the unfounded criticisms of a few unwise Tories, today has been rather tedious. Distracted myself by watching the cricket. It's surprisingly amusing when one takes a more active role in determining the outcome of the match.

Ankle update: cast itches. Incessantly.
