Snoopy Snoop Snoop ID Moat Cleaning

Local councils encourage child snoopers to spy on people. Let the backlash begin.

For the attention of the media: Aung San Suu Kyi is not the main 'opposition' leader in Burma/Myanmar. She is the properly elected Prime Minister, a post she was prevented in taking up in 1990 by the military scum who have ruled the country since then. She has been held under illegal house arrest by an illegal government.

I for one be will sad to see Douglas Hogg stepping down from parliament at the next election. The continung expenses saga must have played a part in his decision to leave politics after thirty years. It's unfortunate that the brouhaha over his moat has come to epitomise the greed of many MPs. I'm inclined to believe him when he says he did not claim for the clearing of his moat and that he never received any cash for it. Hogg is one of the few decent MPs in parliament. I can vouch for his assiduousness in attending to his constituents: letters and emails are acknowledged, answered and followed up. His voting record is more left-wing and liberal than that of the majority of Labour MPs, even though he's a Tory. Awful taste in hats, though.

Get your fake ID card (HT I Hate Jacqui Smith).

Of course, nothing radical can be done to restore any real integrity to the UK political and social systems until we pull out of the EU.
