A few links to stuff worth a read.
I'm totally on the same page as Paulie about political parties, here and here.
Stumbling And Mumbling takes up the suggestion from Tom Harris about virtual opposition.
And I also quite enjoyed the Capitalists' fisking of Labour and Conservative Treasury teams, even though our mob don't come out of it too well!
Finally you may have noticed that I have a new button. This links to the TUC's campaign in support of victimised trade unionists in Zimbabwe. This is an easy one for people to support, surely, regardless of your politics. Click the button to find out what you can do.
