Comments and constructive criticism are most welcome.

There's a Vivitar HV285 at 1/16 pointing from left at the hat in the background, and one at 1/16 snooted shooting across the front to illuminate the smoke.

Elections

Went to the local hustings last night. It was quite enlightening

God knows what the local Tories were thinking with their candidate, well lets say I felt sorry for him. Seemed sincere but a total shambles. And this is a low majority seat!

Labour and Lib Dems came over well and knowing their policies, Lab was a bit too all rehearsed hand gestures, but he's been in since 97 and Blair is infectious...

All made a great point of how they'd had real jobs before being a politician and wouldn't take outside interests if they got in.

No mudslinging from Lib and Lab, Tory lost the audience in the first 30 seconds by trying to put the boot in. Lib and Tory made more of what they'd do, Lab on what they'd done, reasonably enough.

Some quiet honest answers too, one admitted to not having an answer, another time that the issue (dentistry) was a low priority so tough for now.

Glad I went. It didn't change my mind because of recent history, but if this was 97 again I'd have certainly considered switching my vote.

Weird in a wonderful way

Camping happened, AFPers took over the pub, up to and including running the bar. Singing was perpetrated.

Was fun

Cake

Those of you at the Cov Car Meet - was my spicy layer cake nice?

I like it, my folks claim to like it, work seems to hate it...

Report to Re-education Camp 3

So, a while back, in response to some election bumpf from my local MP (Vernon Coaker, Lab) I dashed off a letter, expressing my concerns about the treatment of everyone as suspects (and all suspects are guilty etc..), the new Terrorism Act and so on. I got this reply today.
