Sounds like one each. Would like to know why you think that cringer Mandy's speech was worthy of mention.

I felt it merely indicated how low in morale and talent Labour are.

"Labour Investment, Tory Cuts"

I can't be the only person thinking that when the government is spending £150+bn more than it's taking in each year, cuts are what's needed...

I didn't know that Clegg had given a speech on the Gurkhas.

Oh well, I'm sure it was splendid, 'n'all that.
