  • BBC News – Ed Miliband: ‘These strikes are wrong’
    Look just go and watch this, if you haven't seen it by now. And please bear in mind that this is, allegedly, someone who would quite like to run the country. Because I don't know about you, but this reminds me of nothing so much as a lightly concussed goldfish.
  • Justice: RIP? | Beneath The Wig
    An absolutely sterling article of the recent trail of Levi Bellfield, in defiance of the recent round of Tabloid mentalism over the fact that Bellfield was, in essence, entitled to as full a defence as the next person.

We should not let shoddy tabloid journalism encourage us to think otherwise.
