Hmm. I wonder whether Vigo is part of the Gravesham parly constituency in which the soft-(?)porn producer candidate may win a lot of male votes. More urgently, I have to apologise for removing your comment at my lovingdalston.blogspot.com. I had to repost the news story to which you referred and in the process your comment vanished. But fearing this, I had kept a copy, so I reposted it. I'm sorry: it's been a hard day's night.

Not long ago Cameron and his gang were bragging about storming into power with a thumping great majority. Not looking so clever now are they?

I think over the last 12 months brown and his team have worked very hard to try and correct the mistakes of the Blair years.

For one the new armed forces compensation scheme is a good example of brown reacting to unfair policy. I'm not sure we would have got the same reaction from the conservatives .

The dividing line now is cuts and the extent of which they are implemented. Personally I think the banks should be paying and not the tax payer.

At last Americans have the beginning of a healthcare system. Obama has lived up to his words.
