Tory makes the case for Lord's reform
Jeremy Browne MP making the case for Lord's reform
An 8 minute rant on the #Browne report from someone from a single parent family who worked several jobs to afford undergrad and postgrad uni, but was still lucky.
Mary Harris Jones, "Mother" Jones, the great US labor organizer, said "Sit down and read, and educate yourself for the coming conflicts." Looks like you've already done a fair amount of that. But have you read Naomi Klein's _The Shock Doctrine_? I think what's happening there and had happened here and is happening all over the world will become part of a bigger picture of enriching the few at the expense of the many, and ultimately, at the expense of life on this planet. Keep the fire, and know you aren't alone. Thanks for educating me on what's going on over on that side of the pond.

David Davis on danger for Conservatives that they are perceived as toffs

It's not so much how many votes they need to win a seat, it's how many votes they got per seat... Nationally. Individual seats will be won by a certain number of votes - that's the same for all parties, but nationally Lib Dems must get a lot of second places. For example if a party came second with 49% of the vote in every single seat, and two other parties got either 50% or 0% - those parties would have all of the seats between them but about 25% of the national vote each, whereas that one would have 49% of the vote and have no seats at all.
It does need a shake-up. my constituency (which is a huge region) gets one conservative seat, whereas the Hull region gets 3 (Labour) seats. Even tho I hate Cameron... he did win (%) so Clegg is doing the right thing, even though I don't see how the two parties will merge on policies. Will have to wait and see I guess!
