Clothes maketh the woman?
I was struck today but the reporting on a focus group in Nuneaton -  with a fair amount reflecting people's views of Jeremy Corbyn and most interestingly, their view of his clothes. It seems the voters of Nuneaton are underwhelmed by Mr Corbyn, and also fee...

The Politics of Politics
I was interested in this VICE article which is about how the crowds of new Labour Members don't seem that interested in canvassing and going to local party meetings Some choice quotes include "Existing cliques at local party level are also said to be puttin...

Not about Liberal Democrat All Women Shortlists.
I don't know what I think about All Women Shortlists, or the party's motion about them, yet. I'm not completely bought into the motion but I need to understand more about what local parties are being asked to do, and how far AWS will extend. I think it's pr...

Review of 2015
Personally, 2015 was brilliant - ushering a small person through their first months & years of life is a fantastic privilege which only keeps getting better. A picture you say? Oh go on then. But only the one, I'm very shy of "creating" an online identity f...

Women's Hat Etiquette
Occasionally I don't talk about politics on this blog, and this is one of those days. I was going to write about Jeremy Corbyn, but that's a bit pointless, and besides my adoring public apparently wants to hear about women's hat etiquette. So this is what I...

Hubris, 2015
I hear that the Tory leadership is not actually   too respected by the Tory MPs, especially
since the tax credits debacle. They believe that the leadership think they are God's gift to politics - but isn't there something old that people say about campaigni...

+Iggy Caulfield No, I love comments on my blog :) Yes BlogSpot is pulled into this whole Google thing. So I think yes you've succeeded and commented fine :)

But if you want to post on your own blog you still log into blogger.com (or set up an account if you haven't already). Or move it all across to Wordpress ;) Which I would do if this didn't get such good search rankings (yay!)

Micropayments, micropayments - wherefore art thou , micropayments?
I'm intrigued recently by this piece by the founder of Politico   - Jim VandeHei It's sensible in that it predicts the death of clickbait (praise be!) and the rise of more interesting, well researched paid for content. But, what interests and worries me in ...

This is NOT an

really wouldn't be that interesting to people. Suffice to say I have.   But last time I quit, I found it much harder , but now I think there are many alternatives -...

Safe spaces, dinner parties, freedom of association and virtue signalling.......
Right wing journalism doesn't annoy me half as much, as a centrist, as it does some of my left wing friends. However, some trends and buzzwords have developed recently and I'm not sure people are really thinking them through. Safe spaces seem to have evolve...

Lib Dem Win - coverage for setting up a panel on legalising cannabis
It's a political jungle out there and at the moment the Lib Dems are getting eaten alive, as we only have 8 MPs, and thus very little coverage about policy announcements. In one part it's nice not to have daily attacks on us but the much more worrying issue...
