What’s up with the FT today? It refused to publish this advert from Amnesty International.
Ronnie leaves behind him a fantastic legacy. Songs and albums that brightened up lives, enthused and lifted flagging spirits and told wonderful stories.
It is finished. An exciting election which gave us some compelling theatre and drove the media speculation machine into overdrive has finally given us a new Prime Minister and a Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government. The control freakery and paranoia of New Labour has been rejected. Nick Clegg had achieved that which every Liberal, SDP and now Liberal Democrat leader during my life had desired – to have the balance of power in their hands.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m voting Conservative in today’s general election. A lot of VFPJ is about the failure of the Labour “government”, particularly its complicity with and failure to answer questions about its involvement with Phorm and BT.
