Apologies for the source

but this is interesting:

one of the great things about twtd is that it is entirely free of the 'filter bubble' effect. the diversity of opinion expressed here seems, according to the link, to be unusual.

please, please, please from day one rise above the prime minister's questions crap. ask real questions and don't trade insults. use it for something other than point scoring. be the one who imposes higher standards. show cameron up for the light weight he really is. you have a one off chance to be different.

interesting newsnight piece
at 07:52 1 May 2015

non-party political look at how elections used to be fought. good vintage film of politicians having real encounters with voters. concludes that 'politics could be more passionate then because the media landscape was calmer'. from 36 minutes:

tens and tens of billions ... something really dramatic
at 13:50 14 Apr 2015

"IFS director Paul Johnson is speaking to BBC Radio 4’s World at One programme about the Conservatives' election manifesto launch.

He said the prime minister confirmed that the Conservatives are looking for a budget surplus by 2018. To get to that, he adds, they will need “tens and tens of billions of pounds” of spending cuts or tax increases, “but we got no new detail whatever of what those might look like”.

That implies something really dramatic... rally big cuts on welfare spending, really big cuts in local government spending, really big cuts in all the other bits of spending which haven't been specifically protected."

dead cat out of the bag
at 22:56 9 Apr 2015

why the personal attack on miliband today after the non-dom issue yesterday?

news night have a quote form boris which explains all: "Let us suppose you are losing an argument, The facts are overwhelmingly against you, and the more people focus on the reality the worse it is for you and your case. Your best bet in these circumstances is to perform a manoeuvre that a great campaigner describes as 'throwing a dead cat on the table, mate ... The key point, says my Australian friend*, is that everyone will shout 'Jeez, mate, there’s a dead cat on the table!'; in other words they will be talking about the dead cat, the thing you want them to talk about, and they will not be talking about the issue that has been causing you so much grief."

*chief tory spin doctor.
