Gosh, where to start?

By plugging ourselves, methinks: this afternoon around 4.10pm Mark Littlewood will appear on Radio 5 Live discussing how the Lib Dems have fared during the expenses revelations. Yesterday Liberal Vision was mentioned in a article that reckons us Lib Dems are doing pretty well, at the expense of the Tories and NuLabs (even if that was before Andrew George’s sumptuous daughter appeared on the front of the Torygraph – no doubt provoking the same reaction from retired Colonels at Surrey breakfast tables as from a jaded Julian H on the Jubilee Line).

In other news, the wonderfully-named Alexi Mostrous of The Times reports that plastic bags really aren’t that bad. Or bad at all. Personally I think they’re pretty good, even for carrying food. Once upon a time Tristan Mills questioned “So why are plastic bags bad?” and got very little in the form of, ahem, substantial response.

And finally…

The Adam Smith Institute is offering £850 in prize money to the winners of a competition in which kids say dat freedom is properly frettend by Labar, lk oh my dayz clk n da lnk:

It would be tragic, tragic I say, if Young Britons or ConsFutures, or whatever they call themselves, were the only ones to enter this.
