Great Political Arguments of Our Time

Political leaflets only tend to raise eyebrows in this country when they end up going through the courts, or feature a particularly hilarious LibDem bar chart. Guido thinks we should take a lesson from Sole Sánchez Mohamed, head of the Partit Democràtic de Ciutadella on Spain. She has presented the electorate with “two great arguments” on why she should be elected.

Guido’s sold.

            “David Cameron and I are very happy to consider the case for gay marriage,” shadow chancellor George Osborne today me and Tamsin Omond, at a meeting this morning at the City Inn hotel in London.

            When pressed what this meant, he declined to give any assurances that a Conservative government would conduct a review of the law. A commitment to merely consider the case for legalising gay marriage is meaningless.

            We asked for a concrete promise that the Tories would end the prohibition on same-sex civil marriage but we didn’t get i

            If gays must have legal certification for their unions then call it what it is, “an unnatural union”, or at least “a homosexual union”, not marriage.
            Marriage is a union of two heterosexuals for the purpose of raising children where possible.
            Referring to a “homosexual union” as marriage is offensive to most heterosexuals.

            Good point, and well made. In my son’s secondary school in rural Sussex, attempts by the teachers, following the curriculum, to try and equalise the status of same sex and usual marriages have been resisted by the pupils enormously. The boy got a couple of early detentions, but he feels they were well earned. He has also managed to ‘out’ his science teacher as a global warming sceptic.

        The byproduct of enrichment, called depleted uranium or DU, contains less than one third as much U-235 and U-234 as natural uranium. The external radiation dose from DU is about 60% of that from the same mass of natural uranium.

          U238 has a half life of 4.468 billion years.

          That means it is barely radioactive. Some of the decay products are more radioactive, but DU won’t have many to start with (assuming it has been purified), so it will take a long time to reach equilibrium.

          You’d probably get a bigger dose eating a banana (from the naturally occuring radioactive Potassium) than sitting next to a huge pile of DU.

          It is probably toxic, though (as a heavy metal).

          • Bled White Taxpayer says:

            As far as I can recall (and I am no proper scientist), the issue with toxicity was to do with the after-effects of firing. After penetrating the target, the DU long rod penetrators break up into multiple small burning bits travelling at about 3,200 fps, and those burning bits are really very nasty to health, especially afterwards when cool and dusty. It’s really only a problem for those doing the clear up, as those present on scene at the time of impact tend to have died of kinetic effects and not sickness.

    I thought we were talking about politics in the serious sense on this blog,but what have a pair of boobs got to do with people who could have an enormous influence on ordinary peoples lives.
    Can we leave sex etc were it belongs as merely a tool used by the media to titillate anyone who falls for it.
    There are sites on the net were you can find reams of this trash and personally I have no interest in them whatsoever I’ll leave that to other persons.
    However I am interested in actions by politico’s which will possibly affect peoples lives and I do believe that this site has in some way promoted this to the detriment of self serving political miscreants and I congratulate Guido for this and also other bloggers.
    Having said that I would appeal to all bloggers on this site who are with Guido to please do him a favour and not to get into immaterial useless,meaningless blogs as it only serves as an attack tool for the opposition.
    Used the right way In my opinion this blog would be an extremely powerful tool in the political arena,but I see so much trivia which frankly means naff all that I despair that it is really not getting the message across in a meaningful way.

    Happened to have the TV on when the BBC’s ‘NewsWatch’ came on. They were interviewing the Chairman Sir Michael Lyons.

    Q: What was your worst moment as your four years as chairman?
    A: It was almost certainly the night of the elections when we spent it on the enormous boat, sort of ill designed proposition really.

    Hang on, After heamorraging cash, prominent dismissals, tax dodging presenters, vastly overpayed suits, dreadfull programming and BBC news p*ss poor standards of reporting, He thinks the worst time in four years as chairman was holding election night on a boat?

    Is He having a laugh? Of course He is. The idea for the boat came from none other than Craig Oliver, the lad who escaped the BBC to become Head of communications for the Tory’s.

    Hard luck,Nick

    ED Miliband will today launch a blistering attack on Nick Clegg over his broken election promises.

    The Labour leader will point out that exactly a year ago the Lib Dem leader “looked voters in the eye” during the historic TV election debates and promised to be different – only to let people down at the first sniff of power.

    In a keynote speech in Newcastle Mr Miliband, launching Labour’s local election campaign ahead of the crucial May 5 polls, will call on voters to punish the Deputy Prime Minister.

    He is expected to say: “The Lib Dems have broken their promises. A year ago they promised to scrap tuition fees. But they trebled them.

    “They promised to oppose a rise in VAT. But they voted to back the Tories in raising it to 20%.

    “They also promised to protect the NHS. But they backed David Cameron’s expensive bureaucratic plans which put the founding principles of the heath service at risk.

    • 244
      Gooey Blob says:

      Interesting strategy, but it might have a side-effect. The more that Labour emphasise their differences with the Lib Dems, the more Tories could start to consider voting Lib Dem to keep Labour out of certain seats in the next GE. Labour/Lib-Dem tactical voting will probably decrease slightly, and Tory/Lib-Dem tactical voting will likely increase. Ultimately, Lib Dems could end up taking seats from Labour as a result of a new alliance with Tories who are more willing to vote Lib Dem to keep Labour out.

    Denis Cooper says:

    You may be interested in this comment I posted on an editorial in today’s Telegraph, as follows:


    If the Telegraph really wants to improve our democracy then it could start by refusing to uncritically propagate whatever rubbish is emitted by the Tories and NO2AV.

    First we had the lie that it would cost £250 million to switch to AV, a completely fabricated figure which included the cost of the referendum itself, and the cost of voting or vote counting machines which would not be needed and would not be purchased, plus a sum for educating voters when the Electoral Commission is doing that now and the cost is part of the cost of the referendum.

    Now we have the lie that each general election would cost nearly £200 million more under AV than under FPTP, based on a meaningless extrapolation from the costs of continent-wide elections held in Australia.

    If the Tories really wanted to work out a genuine estimate of the extra cost of running AV elections they wouldn’t be looking as far afield as Australia, but instead only to Ireland where parliamentary by-elections are held under exactly the same variant of AV that we would have here.

    Here are the tabulated results of such an Irish by-election, and note that it’s ballot paper and pencil, followed by a transparent manual count:


    It’s easy to get an idea of how much extra work was involved in the eight counting rounds needed under AV, compared to just the single round which would be needed under FPTP, and it’s easy to work out order of magnitude estimates of how much that extra work needed for AV counts might add to the cost of a general election here.

    And the answer is not an extra £200 million but maybe an extra £2 million, about a 2% increase in the total cost.

    Correctly or incorrectly the Tories fear losing seats under AV, and they’re so desperate to block it that they’ll resort to any misrepresentation, any lie, any smear, anything that they think might help fool people into voting against it.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
