From Mess to Success
I agonised over how I was going to vote on Same Sex Marriage (which lead a lot of people to wrongly assume I was voting against) but that process, which has been going on for some weeks and was particularly intense on Tuesday, ended with a decision to vote for the bill.
Same Sex Mess
Iím in an agony of indecision over same sex marriage. On the one hand Iím not illiberal or homophobic. On the other I am not particularly bothered about this, think civil partnership is enough, and have concerns about the legal repercussions.
Blog from the Dead
Cameronís revival of the Conservativeís poll ratings through his EU con has encouraged me to revive my blog. Firstly let me apologise for neglecting it so much. The truth is it had become too easy to criticise the shambolic Government and was becoming repetitive.
Iíve had my doubts about the organisation of the Olympic game staffing ever since two young friends told me what had happened to them.
Saving Private Clegg
Charles Kennedy the only Lib-Dem who deserves respect wants Labour to save Clegg from his own folly by voting for Lords reform. Sorry Charles. The second Chamber shouldnít have an elected majority.

The Tory Party is rallying to defend Emma Harrison of A4E and Working Links by turning its boot boys loose on Margaret Hodge, Chair of the Public Accounts Committee.
BORED WITH THE LORDS
Iíll except no substitute and if my proposal isnít offered then letís keep the existing shambles. T least it works and can occasionally screw up the government which is its real job.

The electoral mood is a mystery. It could easily be said it is apathy. Yet underneath the surface thereís a swirling mass of fears, grumbles, complaints and alienation which could easily turn sour. Or even UKIP.
SUICIDE AS AN ECONOMIC STRATEGY
Our piggy banker chancellor tells us heís crucifying growth to maintain confidence in sterling and government borrowing. What he doesnít understand is that the quickest way to destroy a triple A rating is economic failure.
Twelve rules of Osbornomics
If Tory economic policies look harsh and irrational itís because you donít understand Osbornomics. Hereís the basic principles.
Lords reform - Clegg Clones?
The one thing to avoid in Lords reform is domination by the same people as the Commons. Elected, senators will be duplicates of US: thick skinned party hacks devoted to fighting each other and chanting a party line written by someone else.
Maybe it`s because I`m not a Londoner that I hate London so. London Pride hasn`t been handed down to me but there are lots of other reasons for disliking this bloated, bumptious Babylon that calls itself a capital. Dr. Johnson got it absolutely wrong. He whoís tired of London isn`t tired of life.
Mean, Miserable and Young
Sir George Young and our government of millionaires have given control of MPs salaries to the Daily Telegraphís parliamentary arm to ensure we never get an increase. Bad move.
The House Diary
My diary for the past few weeks which appeared in the House Magazine.
