Re: #7: Another site which doesn't mention today's PMQs is: http://www.number10.gov.uk/output/page306.asp
Another example of [NOT]-joined-up-government?

I like how, on Lib Deb Voice, under "Latest comments" it says:

I rather like those new coins. When the brouhaha erupted about the removal of Britannia I was quite upset but the Mint have done well I think.

I read Anthony Barnett's piece and his reference to 'the Falklands war [which] introduced the celebration of gratuitous violence as the route to success.'

You say he is normally rather sensible. I am glad to hear it, given that this particular comment is full-strength Guardianista bollocks.

Gratuitous violence indeed! The armed forces of the Crown respond to an invasion of British territory and he calls it 'gratuitous violence'. The man's off his chump.

I suppose I ought to post this on his site really, but I don't like to encourage these people.

Hee hee. Iain, you have a new British Airways add up featuring the upper left corner of the Union Flag. Except it's upside down, which is a signal of distress.

British Airways holidays = Britain in distress. LOL
