Here is the point I made to the Fink (who suggest we cannot know how long illegals have been here)...
'Fair point - but the dept of work, or whatever its called these days, gives out NI numbers like confetti, so I suspect we could find out easy enough.

But why should 'illegals' confess? it only means they would pay tax and if they have been here a long time they are presumably happy in their lot.'

Three out of six links attacking the Lib Dems Iain.

Oh dear, been got at ?

Nah mate. It's just such good fun.

By the way, pity you have resorted to lying about Keith Simpson. The "ordinary member of the public" you talk about in this post was in fact a LibDem activist - but then you knew that already.

Policy Diffusion is a spoof surely.

Norfolk Blogger: Fair enough, I think this being election time, one should expect at least two :P

Sound and Fury said...

The gory details of Cambridge hustings (25 Apr), analysed by Sound and Fury (h/t Old Holborn for the recording, helped refresh S&F's memory). With a good dollop of S&F's political prejudices, to balance out the severe partiality of the chairperson.

You've been HUSTED!

I hardly think that such a driven obsession with desperate attacks 24 hours a day can be "good fun". More like the Gunfight at the OK Corral.

The "Policy Diffusion" one you link to and claim Liberals "won't like at all" is merely silly and obvious.

Oh dear. Even banging the usual immigrant drum doesn't seem to be doing it for the Tories and I predicted some time ago that it would be banged heavily.

The only real puzzle is why it isn't working. Why isn't Cameron going to get an overall majority? Psephologists will be digging deeply into this in the years to come. I suspect that there is a large band of middle-England voters who simply do not and will never again trust the Tories.
